Do you feel overwhelmed by everything you need to finish? Is balancing work or school (or both) with home and family stressing you out? Do you feel like you never get anywhere on your to do list? Would you be more successful if you managed your time more effectively?


You certainly would, and that is the reality behind Melanie Hutchinson’s book Getting Things Done:Proven Methods and Tools for Time Management, Productivity and Order in Your Life. 

Hutchinson pulls no punches with the urgency of the problem of poorly-managed time: stress can actually kill us. But stress is really an issue of our thought life, rather than a physical condition or illness. 

Getting Things Done gets us into the action steps immediately by having us first identify our priorities.We can’t do everything we’re asked to do – we have to say “no” to some things. We need to determine ahead of time what the most important matters are, and what is not important to us personally. 

Hutchinson recommends meditation as a method of training our minds to stay in the present time and place. This helps us focus on the tasks at hand and not get distracted by interruptions. 

Once we know what our priorities are, we can set some goals. Hutchinson carefully outlines how to set goals that we can really work with. She recommends specific goals (losing 15 pounds, not the more general ‘lose some weight’). 

Our goal also should be measurable, so we can track our progress. My statement of wanting to lose 15 pounds in the paragraph above is measurable, because I can periodically weight myself to see how close I am to my goal. A general “lose weight” is not as measurable: sure you can lose one pound, but does that mean you’ve met your goal? 

We also need to know how to attain our goal. I know I can lose 15 pounds is I start running every day and gradually increase my distance over time. Is 15 pounds realistic? Maybe not over the course of a month, but it is realistic over a year. Thus, we’ve made a workable goal. 

Hutchinson introduces us to the idea of keeping a time log for a few days, a journal to record how we are currently spending our time in a typical day. By studying our log, we can see where we could work more efficiently. For example, if I see that I’m spending two hours per day in my car, I can make a point to get some phone calls made while I drive. Maybe we need to see in black-and-white how much time we’re spending playing video games or watching T.V. A Time log will reveal that to us as well. 

We can also examine our workspace for unnecessary clutter and clear it out. We can work more efficiently in an uncluttered space, where we can find everything we need immediately. Hutchinson also reminds us to be careful with paper: act on it, delegate it, or file it .
