Stop, Look and Write It Down
If you think you’re too busy to figure out exactly where your time goes, then you’re precisely the person who should compile a detailed time log.
So for at least three days, or better yet for a week, keep close track of how you spend your days—how many total minutes on important and unimportant phone calls, how many minutes studying papers or restudying papers you’ve already read, how much time socializing, planning, daydreaming, being interrupted, and making significant headway. When you look at your list, let me hear your questions under the comment section. Maybe we can help you FIND the time to do what you need to do and want to do!
Then figure out where you’re wasting your time in relation to your priorities. Being too busy to come to grips with time management is like putting off getting your roof repaired because it’s the rainy season.
