    wonderful. thank you!!!

  • Tanya6ellis

    Wow! This was very helpful. It’s going to be hard to break my “multi-tasking” attitude.

  • Melanie Kissell

    Looks like I better stop bragging about “multi-tasking”. LOL!

    And my “prime time” is definitely after midnight.  That’s when I seem to get a second wind and a surge of energy.

    Very cool (and helpful) post — thanks!


  • Andrea

    I believe I have 2 peaks and 2 spikes—5-7:00am and 5-6 pm. But I also require am a nap ~4-6pm.

  • SarahButtonedUp

     🙂 How’s it going so far?

  • SarahButtonedUp

     Glad you liked it Melanie! Most people who have that night owl burst of energy also have another one between 10am-2pm during the day… 🙂

    I cannot, CANNOT prioritize! But I am getting better about being on time!

  • SarahButtonedUp

     Baby steps Eileen! Don’t expect to improve everything overnight, it doesn’t ever stick when you do things that way. Just keep taking the steps you’re taking and before you know it you WILL be able to prioritize.

    Thanks for such a succinct summary. LOVE these ‘laws’. Delegating and planning are 2 of my favorite secret weapons. It may take a while but practice each law a few times and see which one sticks.

     Glad these resonated with you @f4149b14277d81b6c393cfbb2ca3c19e:disqus. Totally agree with you, practice makes perfect. 🙂

    Thank you for these helpful pointers. I like the points about inertia and about writing things down. Looks like I need to buy an egg timer and figure out what kind of planner will allow the space I need to plan my days better in 2013. I tend to have multiple lists, lists of lists, lists containing the same things that are on other lists. Desparately need to get that under control and set a better plan for my day (I work full-time from home).

    Prioritize the top 3 most important things that need to get done NOW! and then start with the first one until it’s done!!! Good luck!
