A fun article on time management

This is oh, so true.
Don’t let the link put you off. It isn’t what you think. LOL!

‘Thus, an elderly lady of leisure can spend the entire day in writing and dispatching a postcard to her niece at Bognor Regis. An hour will be spent in finding the postcard, another in hunting for spectacles, half-an-hour in a search for the address, an hour and a quarter in composition, and twenty minutes in deciding whether or not to take an umbrella when going to the pillar-box in the next street.

LOL … who has been spying on me?

This was interesting. I did find in print production, there were jobs that I said
“This job is due next week, I have plenty of time for this, i’ll have it ready early”
But sure enough, either do to a slew of rush jobs crammed before it, or do to problems with the job itself, it’s always ready just before the customer comes in.

There are exceptions of course when a certain task in NOT done on time, but it’s rare. Have too many of those and you wouldn’t be in business.

Otherwise it’s always right on the nose of the time allotted.

I’ve found if you try to run a print job early, the customer calls up and says, “Um…do I have time to make one more change?”

It’s 3x Parkinson’s Law when the job involves opinions.
