Since I last updated you on my new time management system it has developed in a totally unexpected direction. It’s showing great promise, but I’ve yet to test out the new direction thoroughly.
It’s been a fascinating process for me so far, and most of the articles I have written written recently have been based on my experiences of working on this
Where have I got to?
As is so often the case when coming up with something new, it’s the result of combining tried and trusted principles in a way they haven’t been combined before.You’ll all recognize the base system, but the way it’s used is quite different from how it’s been used in the past.
The really good news is that I seem to have found a way of having a list which resists the expansionist tendencies of a catch-all list, but doesn’t need to be destroyed every day. I say “I seem to” because one can never be sure of these things until they have been tried out over a reasonable period of time.
What I’m finding really interesting is the feeling of working with a closely focused list that gets carried forward from day to day. I’m finding that I can work a large portion of my day virtually on autopilot. So it’s giving maximum conservation of energy!
