I am wondering what kind of system people use to manage their time (and day). I think the ideal system for a person is somewhat related to the person's MBTI type.
Since elementary school, I have been writing down assignments deadline on an agenda, and then do things that would bring that assignments to its conclusion. The system works great while I was in school, but it doesn't work very well when there aren't that many hard deadline. It's also doesn't do any longer term planning.
I have been trying to use the Getting Things Done (R) system since it has been very popular online. Well, it hasn't quite work well for me. I think part of the reason is that the system is too unstructured where the author left too much room for tinkering. It also doesn't give a lot of guidance for longer term planning and those goals are sort of out of sight, out of mind. I hate rewriting projects and left the list stale, then I stop writing down next actions from project.. enough complains.
I think I need a system with a fixed daily todo list and calendar scheduling. I think I am going to go for the Covey's 7 habit system next. Any comments on anything related to time management? Tips and tricks? Your story?
