Master time, or it will master you.

I recently discovered Michael Hyatt, one of those social media gurus who has a huge online footprint that he pretty much grew in the last five years or so. I grabbed his book "Platform" as soon as I realized he didn't exhibit any of the smarmier characteristics of other social media gurus. That book, by the way, is ridiculously awesome if you're interested in building an online "tribe" of loyal followers. (At least in theory -- I'm just now implementing his ideas, but they seem sound and practical...)



Anyway, he recently posted something that hit me at just the right time. It's a post about reclaiming your time. If you have a hectic schedule, or if you find yourself struggling to keep on top of a crushing daily workload, you should check it out. Here's the link: http://michaelhyatt.com/more-margin.html


I was especially gratified to see his working weekly calendar because I recently created something very similar. I've been calling it my "Task Matrix," which is a grid breaking down my daily, weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, quarterly and yearly tasks that come up regularly. Its also broken down by department: CEO, Admin, Marketing, Legal, etc...


If you need help organizing your life, this post is well worth it. Check thou it out!
