>I often use my 3 in-boxes as task lists, and I had one item in particular that’s sat around for ages: watching the Last lecture of Randy Pausch. I finally watched it last night – in fact, I stayed up late to watch it, despite my intention to get to work early to get a head start in a few projects (which I managed to accomplish anyhow). All I can say was that it was worth it.
Tonight, I was debating going to bed early, but ended up clicking on a link that took me to Dr. Pausch’s web page, where I discovered a new lecture he’s posted: “Time Management”. It’s a fantastic reflection on how to focus on your goals, and to achieve the things you want to achieve. He gives plenty of pointers, of which a number are so clearly good ideas that it would be silly not to follow up on them.
Taking his advice, I’ve already done two things this evening that I was procrastinating on… and I have several good ideas on how to improve my working environment.
Anyways, if you have the time, each of the lectures I’ve linked to is about an hour and a half, and worth every minute of it. Invest the time and watch them.
