Thoughts from February 2010
 
Do not forget our goal:  I want to help you to do tasks better and have time for fun!!!
 
I will be sharing ideas from "Time Management" by Marshall J. Cook, 1998 - Adams Media Corporation. 
 
Is "NO" really "NO 
 
People who are asked to do something, are generally asked because they are good at the task, they have 'always' done it, or someone recommend them. 
 
But, how much can we actually keep adding to our day.  'No' may be the appropriate response.  Let someone else grow in added responsibility!
 
Some thoughts to consider:
 
  • You find it hard to say "No" -- so you respond "YES"
  • Ask for time to think about the request 
  • If 'No' - mean it when you say it
  • You are not obligated to give a reason
 
Be conscious of what you are saying and why!

Are all your gadgets really saving you time?
