The late, great Randy Pausch gives an entertaining and highly beneficial talk on time management in the Youtube video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oTugjssqOT0
There are many gems in the video that have helped me. A selection are below:
- Most tasks in life are judged pass/fail. You don’t need to spend all day polishing the underside of the banister
- Learn to say no. Saying no is okay.
- The purpose of time management is to have more time available to spend with the people you love.
If you’re on my blog, you probably heard of Randy Pausch already. If not, look him up and you will be blown away with his courange and brilliance under the worst of circumstances.
