WHEREAS, almost all of the above resolutions have a common element: time management…
That’s not to say that perfect time management will lead to an immediate realization of research goals, a great reading list, or perfect lessons, but it sure would help. I seemed to be endlessly under the gun this year. I had great “to do” lists, but hadn’t matched them up with “when” lists, which meant I didn’t really get them done.
THEREFORE, let it be resolved that I will keep up my calendar, and schedule time for everything that is added to my “to do” list.
I’m going to try going the PDA route during the first few months of the year, in hopes that this will help with keeping on top of appointments and keeping them scheduled. If, however, this ends up taking more time than it gives, I will go back to a small notebook.
(As a side note, this disruption of schedules seems to be an epidemic–a symptom of Late Capitalism. How else to explain time porn?)
