I have commenced on a Julie Morgenstern marathon. I am re-reading 3 of her books on time and life management. This one was very work focused so not always relevant to me (since I have no boss or staff to manage). But I took away three key points:
1) importance of estimating the time it takes to do tasks - how can you plan you day if you don't know how long anything will take - I chronically under estimate and am working on building that skill and facing up to the reality, 2) fact that time management problems can be technical or psychological and it's easier to solve the technical problems, 3) idea of selective perfectionism - recognizing that it's not worth it to do everything perfectly - watch for the point of diminishing returns - practice selective perfectionism.
