More tips


  • Make morning or evening time a sanctuary for yourself

  • Slow down and take a closer look at your tasks

  • View time as a "balance" of your day, and life

  • Batch your tasks like cookies, putting like with like

  • Multitasking takes the brain 4x's longer than focusing on 1 task at a time

  • Time is a container - tasks take up time like objects take up space

  • Apply perfectionism only to tasks that matter most

  • Make all your decisions for morning on the night before

  • Leave a Do Not Forget list by the door

  • Vertical Time Maps devote each day to the theme of that day, it's categories, goals, and activities

  • Stop procrastinating by focusing on the payoff and breaking it into smaller steps

  • Filter interruptions by responding to them later, take messages - studies show it's faster (7 minutes versus 11 minutes)

  • Forgive your failures, and celebrate your successes!
