The Power of Time

This has been a busy week for me and it's only Tuesday. Tomorrow I have an all day meeting with a group called Vistage and then I am out of town on Thursday and Friday looking at a new printing press. When I got up this morning, I started to realize all that needs done today in preparation for the rest of the week and it almost became overwhelming.

When I got to work, I started down my list of things that needed done today, from meetings to arranging for my group tomorrow to planning for the trip later in the week. That along with my normal duties and there was a large amount to get done.

Now that it is the end of the day I realize that when I have more to do than I normally do, I get more done. I am starting to believe that I need to over schedule every day to get more done.

I had a professor in college that used to say, "If you want something done, give it to a person that is busy." He meant that when someone got things done, that was generally their nature. What a great lesson.
