Getting It All Done

Comments (5)

I get questions like the following on a regular basis: "I like reading your blog, and I’m amazed that you can get involved with so many things simultaneously and manage to get great results while living a balanced life. Could you talk a little about your time management techniques, and how do you prioritize your daily activities?  I’m sure many readers would appreciate a post on these."

I sat down to write a long answer to this and realized that there is a whole category of self help books on this that takes up a ridiculous amount of floor space at Borders.  I decided that rather than answer this in a blog post, I’d write another crappy time management book.

Not really.  I don’t have time for that.  Nor do I have any interest. 

Whenever I’ve written on work-life balance, I get lots of compliments and thank you emails.  I also know that some of the best blogging I’ve done are series like the term sheet series I wrote several years ago.

So – to try to answer this question, I’m going to start a work-life balance series.  I’ll periodically blog about how I get things done, keep my sanity, and enjoy almost every minute of life.  Some of it will be tools I use, some will be my philosophy, and some will just be me blathering on about something.  Hopefully some of it will be helpful.

For the wiseasses out there, I know that your answer #1 will be "stop reading blogs – they are a waste of your time."  But – I don’t buy this – I learn an enormous amount from the blogs I read (in my own special way which I’ll describe at some point soon.)  Read on – maybe you’ll learn something too.

    Hi Brad,

    I am a die-hard fan of your blogs. For the last couple of months, i have been wanting to read all your blogs on work-life. Finally today i finished reading all of them.

    Every blog is simply amazing. I am from India, 30 years old and am a successful management executive. I am about to start off with my own venture (flash/sample sales – the concept is very new here in India)

    I have determined to bring a rhythm in my life and have listed down a series of rules (based on the ones you have).

    Thanks again for writing.
