Hello Katie,
Thanks for the great video. It will be fun to see how much more things our team can get done utilizing this method. We all tend to do the things you said in your video. Start one place and end up somewhere else. At the end of the day your still in the same spot….LOL.. :)
Got to run and get to some specific time framing!!! Thanks for sharing your information..
Be well

This was so good that I had my kids watch it during dinner and replaced the word “projects” with homework! Then we had a brief discussion that was fascinating. I need to apply this too and cut the distractions. Thank you Katie – Evanne Dorman

Great information again Katie. I have used this for quite a while but didn’t realise its name until I saw your post. I started it in my home, long before I was in business, and found I got all my housework finished in half the time it previously took me. Yes, if I allowed the day for washing and ironing – that’s how long it took me. I have just used these same strategies into my working and business life with just as much success. Thanks for filling in the missing pieces for me :)

The people you are describing sounds more like people with ADHD (like me except I get things done). =o)

Katie – Thank You for reminding me to stop wasting time – I used to take an hour or two every Saturday AM and “block out” chunks of time for each project which had a firm deadline – only THAT project gets worked on in THAT chunk of time.

And thank you for the FREE training videos – you exemplify the principle of “exceeding the consumers expectations”

Hi Katie

This is so true and is a technique I use daily to get things done but I never knew the name for it. I also make a to-do-list for the following day, the night before. Then when I complete the tasks no matter how small I make sure I cross them off with a big tick which works well to keep me motivated to take steps to move my business forward everyday.

What a great idea Katie! I totally agree with you — we obsess with deadlines and fix schedules but the downside to this is that we actually take our time when our task or project is not due yet! This is an amazing concept to apply in all aspects of life. It’s so ironic how we can get all organized and plan our tasks, yet still end up wasting time! Thank you for sharing this idea…two thumbs up! :)

I had heard of Parkinson’s Law (though not by name), and I have used it successfully in giving my children time limits. I just never thought about applying it the way you talked about–decide how long I think a task should take, then shortening the time. Great idea!

It’s so easy to let loose ends and fuzzy boundaries expand to fill our day. Parkinson’s law – so cool and helpful. Clarity is power and when we use this law to create clarity, it gives us more power.

I just looked it up and apparently he also assigned the law to a mathematical equation describing how bureaucracies expand over time. I live in San Francisco and I think this law governs road construction here…and I guess everywhere else from what I’ve seen!

Here’s a variation I found on the article on Parkinson’s Law:

“The demand upon a resource tends to expand to match the supply of the resource.”

Hey Katie:

My opinion is…I’M GUILTY OF THIS! I have a to-do list of my activities for a day but never implemented this technique. Now that you have opened my mind to it, rest assure that I will be implementing this right after posting this comment. You keep amazing me. Hope you keep inspiring people like me. Good day!

This is a great information. Its funny how sometimes very simple concepts seem to escape your notice once you get wrapped up in your work. Making a schedule does work.

Katie,

Awesome time management strategy.

It seems so obvious now after watching your video, but I never thought to reduce my project time to accomplish more.

Thanks for what you do.
