Ok, Mouser! I'll do as you say...
The 2nd assignment should be work on a project for at least
5 minutes a day. The idea is that you set yourself a small daily goal (I'll work on my project for at least 5 minutes) rather than a big one (I'll work on my project for three hours). That way, you are much more likely to do it. Once you've started you may or may not go on to do much more work than 5 minutes, but either way you have chalked up a success and kept the project alive. When you keep moving on something it tends to create its own momentum. When you stop moving, it tends to die.
I think the summary is a very good one. I wish I could sum it up as succinctly!
The paragraph on the Wikipedia article beginning "However some critics of time management methods consider..." was written by me. The following paragraph is not!
Finally, my website is in the process of being relocated at the moment. If you can't get through to http://www.markforster.net
than try http://www.markforster.squarespace.com
. In fact, look at it anyway - it's much better laid out!
