Any David Seah Printable CEO fans?
When it comes to time management, I'll admit to being a newbie. I have never it seems, been able to find a system and stick to it whole-heartedly. I am trying though!
David Seah is a pretty articulate blogger, and while his posts are long they are thorough and still engaging to read. He is intelligent without being a jerk about it :-)
I run my own web hosting and colocation company and often have time focusing on what is "important" vs. "urgent".
I have found the "Emergent Task Timer" to be amazingly effective in tracking my focus over the course of a day. Tracking time in 15-minute increments is easy using the tool (either online or via the PDF he has for download), and revealing to me is how much time I waste over the course of the day.
For instance, yesterday I worked on 2 client jobs, one that had me working from home (no travel) and one that required an on-site visit. Though I thought I pulled out all the stops and was busy, the ETT showed that a "full day's work" for me meant only 5 hours of billable time! It was a shocking revelation.
Anyone else deriving use from David's tools? (They are all free PDFs that work on both laser and inkjet printers).
