How ironic.

time managementMy husband still can’t get over it.  I have recently become a social media community manager for a productivity expert.  Mitch still laughs when he thinks of me researching, tweeting and posting on the topic of time management.  He is of the impression that I, Susan Finn, just might be the worst time manager in the history of the world.  Aha – but he is so very, very mistaken.  As with so many things in life – it is really all about from which angle you approach an issue.  What Mitch sees as poor time management, may actually be excellent time management. If I can fit a few more things into those last 15 minutes before leaving for a party or serving dinner, then, I feel that I have, indeed, used that time wisely. In fact, I will probably keep tweeting and posting while we are driving to the party or to the market. (No worries – he’s driving, I’m posting – I always practice safe text)  I happen to think that is an excellent use of time.

So now, as I have become more engrossed on this topic of time management and productivity for my client, I am actually quite intrigued by it.  I am beginning to start to use many of her strategies in my day-to-day life.   Simple changes such as only working on emails at certain times during the day, creating a ‘filing’ system for my email inbox to isolate the tasks that will be most effective for productivity, and not just be busy-ness, setting a timer and more.
