101 Ways to Make Every Second Count: Time Management Tips and Techniques for More Success With Less Stress (1999)[edit]

  • Quality improves with effort according to an exponential curve.
  • Productive people guard their time more heavily than the gold in Fort Knox.
  • Without a deadline, the motivation to do a task is small to nonexistent.
  • You can't literally cram a 25th hour into a 24-hour day. But you can shift activities and priorities so more time is available for essential tasks.
  • In my opinion two is the ideal team. Any more and you're in danger of ending up with a committee that spins its wheels and accomplishes nothing.
  • Be aware that you may not be the best judge of what your employees need to do their jobs effectively. Even if you've done the job yourself, someone else may work best with a different set of tools, or in a different setup, because each person is different.
  • The successful managers know that the best way for their people to learn and grow is through experience and that means taking chances and making errors.
  • One of the greatest satisfactions in life comes from getting things done and knowing you have done them to the best of your ability.
  • Many people boast of going years without a vacation. But this is a sign of trouble — not commitment.
