From This Week's 3RT:
The question at the beginning of this article hit me right between the eyes. “How is it that we have more tips, tricks, tools, technology, calendars and checklists than ever before, and yet we still always seem to be behind?” It has been said the art of life is asking good questions, and that is a very good question.
Perhaps it's the more, more, more of life. I mean, is my problem with never having a charged device something to do with the fact that I just have too many devices? (No answers on a postcard, thank you). The author suggests that whatever the problem is, a solution is to become a time multiplier. As an example: “A multiplier realizes that if I can save 30 minutes a month from paying my bills by setting up online bill pay, it makes sense to invest those two hours because after just four months’ time, I will have broken even on that investment.”
Oh, like finally copying the transitioning paragraph above that appears in Friday's Things every week and that I usually have to go find in last week's Things into somewhere I can copy and paste without any hunting? That kind of thing? Or actually bookmarking the page that tells me how to do a VLookup? Or y'know, ordering some extra cables so I can have a bed-time device-charging spot in my house? THOSE kind of things? Please share your favorite or most useful time multipliers here.
