Like plethora of time management books , ideas and principles being marketed, I hereby presentone of my version on time management.The ideas I have presented here, were being thought,worked and experimented for the past twoyears. Like I say, there are no orignal ideas but orignal copies, these ideas are too not whollymine,but borrowed from that source or these source. But these synthesis of various ideas haveworked for me,and I suppose it may work for you.I am a philosopher( a person who uses too much of his mind or who over-analyzes things). Andtherefore my discourse on time management starts with why, with that I start my discourse.
Why Time management ?
The development of human kind, has not given us more time ,but it has taken our time. Neverbefore in the history, men is so liberated. It can do manything, and this many thing has become atwo edge sword - many thing in work and many thing in recreation . And to do it , in a fixed valuecall time.The world consist of two kinds of people - maximizer and satisfier. Maximizer tends to maximize ,and satisfier is happy with what they have. Now, this Time management thing are for maximizer,those who want to do more things in their life, for satisfier, this is bull shit.
On what we do ?
Now those who are reading it, I may say that they must be a knowledge worker. A knowledgeworker is different from a manual labour. A knowledge worker work is not a physical work but amental work. And for me it should not be called a work at all. The work he do has got tangible work,the work component that you see constitute only a fraction of his total effort, most of his work isinvolve in
collecting data, understanding, thinking and then execution
. So the work should becalled as a
.This can be generalized to all the work we do in the modern society from planning holiday(choosingholiday on net, discussing , thinking) to getting our car for repair (when to give, which ).
How to manage projects ?
I am not a believer of any time management ideas which relies on scribbling on papers, oncomputers ,or on PDA. Cause the problem with them is they overlook chaos, and hence need to beupdated every time. These so called to-do list or priority list believes in linear view of time. ForexampleAt time t-1 , I made a to-do list or priority list, at time t-2 ,after completing task A, I have to againredraw my priority list, cause the information I get after working in project A, makes many otherprojects redundant.
