Time Management: Procrastination and Productivity
How Much Time Do You Have?
I have you for an hour.

24 hours in a day
168 hours in a week
8,736 hours in a year
87,360 hours in a decade
692,040 hours in an average lifetime

It takes 10,000 hours to master something.
Wasting Your Time
How do you waste time?

Does multitasking save time?
How Can We Save Time?
Inspiration: "If you can dream it, you can do it." - Walt Disney

Disneyland was built in 366 days.
Control Your Time
Find the time of day where you do your best work.

Find your creative time and defend it!
Interruptions last 6-9 minutes with 4-5 minutes to recover.
Cut them short: "I'm in the middle of something now..." or "I only have 5 minutes."

Find your dead time, and do things during those times that are less important.

Create your own deadlines.
General Advice
"When a job is once begun, leave it not until it's done. For no matter great or small, do it well or not at all."

"If you don't have time to do it right, when will you have time to do it again?"

"The hardest part is getting started."
Other Key Things
Eat, sleep, and exercise.

Most things are pass/fail.

Most things can be good enough.

The idea of "Competing Goals."
Remember to "Reset"
You waste two hours day
Messy desk or room
Can't find something
Unprepared for classes or meetings
Tired or unable to concentrate
The more we split our attention between activities, the less efficient we become.

Switching Time - the time it takes the brain to
switch from doing one activity to another

Switching time increases the time we need to complete our tasks by 25%.
"Failing to plan is planning to fail." - Alan Lakein

Plan each day, each week, and each semester.

You can always change your plan, but only if you have one...
Make To-Do Lists
Break things down to small steps.
Like a child cleaning his or her room...
Do the easiest or the ugliest thing first.
Your email inbox is NOT your to-do list.
Try to only touch each email once.
Parkinson's Law
"Work expands so as to fill the time available for its completion."
Temporal/Hyperbolic Discounting, the Pomodoro Technique, and the Zeigarnik Effect
Eat healthy foods
Time management
