Time, Your Most Valuable Resource

In 1991 I read Jeffrey Mayer’s book, “If You Haven’t Got the Time to Do It Right, When Will You Find the Time to Do It Over?” It was likely one of hundreds of books I’d read about time management. Since then, I’ve probably read 100 more. You’d think I’d be a time management expert by now, huh?

Time management tools and techniques are a bit like the best camera. “The best camera is the one you have with you.” The best time management techniques are the ones you’ll actually use.

GTD – Getting Things Done – by Robert Allen is clearly the market leader in time management. If not the market leader, it’s got to be the best known brand in the space.

I’m not a time management expert, but I do know how to get things done. I do what works for me. You likely do things differently than me. That’s fine.

But…

Sometimes I don’t do what I know I should. Sometimes I mess up. And I have to go back and do something again because I failed to take the time to do it right the first time ’round.

I’d like to hear what works for you, or what resources you’ve found valuable.
