Time Tamer Tuesday - Lighten up on the Commitment List

Don't over commit yourself. It's better to do fewer things calmly and accurately. Tomorrow is another day.

Time Tamer Tuesday - Use the Down Time

Line up to check out?  Subway slow?  Buses busy?  Keep a notebook with you so you can jot notes for other projects, thoughts, lists or activities while waiting.  Ideas often come to us while our brains are supposed to be concentrating on other things.

Time Tamer Tuesday - Lay Out the Work Out

Headed for a workout in the morning?  Whether you go to the gym or hit the pavement/park for a run or bike, lay out your gear the night before - all of it including clothes, socks, shoes, gloves, keys, phone, shower gear, work clothes and anything else you need to take.  You'll be primed when you wake up and can go on autopilot until the endorphins kick in.
