Time Management


Adapted from The 80/20 Principle by Richard Koch




Two Questions To Answer


When thinking about any potential use of time, ask two questions:

Is it unconventional?

Does it promise to multiply effectiveness




The Top 10 Highest-value Uses of Time


Things that advance your overall purpose in life

Things that you have always wanted to do to do

Things already in 80/20 relationship of time to results

Innovative ways of doing things that promise to slash the time required and/or multiply the quality of results

Things other people tell you can't be done

Things other people have done successfully in a different arena

Things that use your own creativity

Things that you can get other people to do for you with relatively little effort on your part

Anything with high quality collaborators who have already transcended the 80/20 Rule of time, who use time eccentrically and effectively

Things for which it is now or never






Kurt Vonnegut advice

Use the time of a total stranger in such a way that he or she will not feel the time was wasted.
