Here are my five favorite points discussed in the lecture:
- Equating time with money: I've always heard the saying 'time is money,' but never really thought deeply into it. I am always careful over my money and finances, but I never care to make the best use of a single unit of time, like an hour or a day.
- Stress doesn't occur because the work I'm doing is hard, it is almost always due to bad time management. Having good time management will prevent stress.
- He mentions that is it important to ask yourself questions about the tasks on your to do list. One question that is crucial is "What happens if I don't do this?" as it allows me to visualize how my decisions now will affect me later.
- "It doesn't matter how well you polish the underside of the banister." He emphasizes that allocating time on what's important is crucial to developing good time management skills.
- Planning is a habit that should remain constant in your life on a day to day basis. Planning includes creating to-do lists and laying out objectives in a calendar. This is important because it helps you visualize the amount of work that needs to be done and will put you in the right mindset at the right time.
