Back in the mid-1990s, my partner gave me a book titled "How To Use Your Time Wisely." I was going through a time where I just could not get everything under control. Since it was a mere 101 pages, and had fairly large type, I decided that I could probably read it in one sitting that evening. Well, I not only finished it in a couple of hours, but I read it again. Since then, I've read it a hundred more times, every time that I need something positive to help me get through something. It's by Phyllis Jaufman & Arnold Corrigan and can be found at Amazon.com for a mere penny plug shipping. It just might be the best penny you ever spent. My partner and I keep several copies on hand to give away as presents to high school and college graduates, newly self-employed, etc.
Here's what it can help you do:
"How to accomplish more
"The art of meeting deadlines
"How to stop procrastinating
"All you need to know to become a Time Management P-R-O
"How to put the No Nonsense G-O-L-D principle to work for you"
There are great techniques for setting goals, organizing priorities, scheduling your day (especially if you have an interesting biological clock), the art of filing (toss it, file it, or move it), dealing with paper, dealing with interruptions and schedule-breakers, saying no, when and how not to be perfect, handling panic and stress, tiime wasters and their cures, procrastination causes and cures, a place for everything and everythig in its place.
Probably the most influential aspect of my life was solved by this book through the G-O-L-D principle:
"Setting your Goals (for the day, the year, and beyond)
"Organizing your priorities and planning how to achieve your goals.
"Listing the things you will do on a given day (and sometimes for longer periods).
"And finally—Do it now! The time has come to begin."
G-O-L-D has been a part of my life for fourteen years now and has led to great success in what I do. I can honestly say that G-O-L-D is gold!
