I have a good habit, of making out a list each night,of the 6 most important things I have to get done the next day. Then I try, as best as I can, to actually do what is on that list. That is very easy to say; and very difficult to do consistently, but this quote from gives me a kick in the backside to Get it Done:
"Nothing is so fatiguing as the eternal hanging on of an uncompleted task."
I read a great book called the Ultimate Sales Machine by Chet Holmes and in the first chapter he had a system of time management. He says there are 6 steps to good time management and I agree with these six.
1 Touch it once
2 Make a list of the 6 most important things you must get done the next day.
3 Plan how much time each task will take
4 Plan the day
6 Will it hurt to throw this away?
