Time Management

From a Ukrainian website:

Time management strategies were invented by people who don’t need them for people who are incapable of using them.

Today, I have the following tasks:

1. Workout

2. Pedicurist

3. Two syllabi, one of which is a new preparation.

4. Photocopying texts for the next semester and placing them on BB.

5. Adding 300 words to my MLA talk.

6. Grading at least 6 final essays.

7. Folding laundry.

8. Quality time with family.

The pedicurist always says, “I prefer to work with your sister. She talks to me.” Today she’ll have to work in silence again, unfortunately.

  1. “Time management strategies were invented by people who don’t need them for people who are incapable of using them.”

    I love this. I fall into the “…incapable of using them” set. I am going to have a button made with this quote on it, probably with the variant: “Time management strategies were invented by people who don’t need them for people like me who are incapable of using them.”

  2. You are a lot more energetic than I. Yesterday finished a little grading and filing; had a meeting and responded to e-mail; did 15 minutes of research; got groceries; went to a little party; talked to my father … and that is all.

    1. I’m not always like this. That would be weird and probably unhealthy. Sometimes, I wander around stupidly for hours and do nothing. That’s fun, too. But right now I don’t have a choice because I’m going to Montreal for 10 days and then to Chicago. There will be no work done at all until January 9.
