  • Very good articles and comment, TIME management is a very common word or phrase use nowadays.
    We cannot manage time, Time is fixed, and everyone of us have the same. The only things or difference is how we manage our activities.

    Exactly my point — and thanks for adding your voice to the discussion, and for your kind words! I appreciate it.

    I also hear the distict echo of David Allen and Tim Ferris. At least for me.

    This is really good Ray. You know, I’ve gotta say, I really like the brevity of your blog formula in concert with your podcast. This is great formula.

    I can testify that without taking a Sabbath Day off, I’d work myself into the ground. Yesterday was a nice family day. Really does let you decompress.

    Reminds me also of what I read in Brian Tracy’s Eat That Frog. One of his most important principles is to ensure you take one entire day off. It really does rejuvinate the mind for the coming week.
