Assembly Line Philosophy

June 25, 2012


If multitasking won’t work for a task, another way you can Krunch your schedule is to apply the assembly-line philosophy to some of the tasks in your life. One very simple way you can do this is by planning out your errands in advance. Have you ever gone to the grocery store only to realize, […]

Krunching It

June 22, 2012


If you’re not able to ‘Kick’ a task, then you may want to try this second time-saving coaching tool. I call this tool Krunching It. To “Krunch” something means to complete a task in the most efficient way possible. With a little creativity and some planning, almost any activity on your time chart can be […]

June 11, 2012


The results are in. For the past 10 days, I’ve been tracking where and how I spend my minutes, my hours and my days. And wow. Wow, do I waste a lot of time on stupid sh*t.  In any given day I can waste 3-4 hours on the internet. That’s right. Three to four hours. […]

Doing Time

June 9, 2012


As Laura Vanderkam advises in my new favorite book 168 Hours, keeping track of how and where you spend your time really sheds some light on how you’re spending-or wasting-your life.

Great time-recording resources

June 4, 2012


Last week, I started a great book by Laura Vanderkam called 168 hours. She has some really great resources on how to manage your time in this book, and one of my favorites are her time-tracking tools.
