Pause… Rest… Relax

January 31, 2012

I found myself with some free time tonight and the very concept struck me as odd. I must have something I NEED to do? While there are things I can be doing I am implementing the Eisenhower Matrix time management principle. This is some variation of the time management system that Jack Welch of GE is reputed to have used, that being when an issues arises do one of the following:

Deal

Discard

Delay

Delegate

Being a fan of Alliteration this system is something that I implemented a few years ago and have found very useful.

The Eisenhower Matrix I found described in this book:

I bought this book as research for a script I recently delivered and have now found it useful for a new role I have recently taken on. Having decided the most important thing to do tonight was the creative pause I hope to go into a fresh day beaming and enhanced.

Really looking forward to it. Got a number of my jokes, gags and routines worked out. Just need to get the serious stuff in there now!


2011 review in stats

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 5,800 times in 2011. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 5 trips to carry that many people.
