I was reading a post from a fellow debt blogger at debtsucksblog.com and he made an excellent point about time management. Basically, he says that time budgeting was the wrong approach for him and that keeping a list of priorities worked better.
I have to say that, being a former sous-chef, that I agree. No matter how busy I was going to be when I got to work, I had to take ten minutes and make a detailed list of things that had to get done and that I was responsible for. I then had to figure out how to prioritize the list. What did I have to get done, what could wait, and what could be delegated. Taking this approach helped me to always be ready for service.
