Simple time management for dummies

  1. Make a list of all the stuff you need to get done.
  2. Create deadlines for each item.*
  3. Do it.  And keep to your deadlines.

I don’t know what the fucking problem is.  We aren’t in kindergarten anymore, we can take responsibility for our own work.  Constantly being interrupted by Twitter, email, phone, IM?  Turn them the fuck off.  Seriously.  You don’t need a $20 book or some special system to tell you how to get your shit done.

* Having trouble creating deadlines for yourself?  Make them totally arbitrary.  If you miss your deadline, make better, more realistic deadlines.  But make sure the deadlines are specific.  A deadline like “I will clean my room…sometime” is not a deadline.
