I’ created time management checklists before, but this is probably the most comprehensive. It was also the most difficult one. I wanted to keep it scannable, while sharing the best wisdom, insights, and lessons learned around time management. Most importantly, I wanted to make it actionable.
To make it more actionable, I chunked the checklist into the following categories:
- Calendar / Schedule
- Email / Social Media
- Task Management
- Timeboxing / Time Budgeting
Here is the checklist so far:
If you see key strategies missing, sent me a note. I want to have a one-stop shop of time management strategies at a glance.
On an interesting note, my book, Getting Results the Agile Way was #2 in Germany for Time Management for a while according to Amazon. I hadn’t really thought of it as a time management book – I thought of it more as a personal empowerment system, but now that I think about it, time management makes perfect sense. At the end of the day, mastering your time is the key to effectiveness. (Note that you can read Getting Results the Agile Way for free online. I want everybody to have the best patterns and practices for making the most of what they’ve got.)
