I have just discovered the greatest secret of time management ever. (Even moreso than matter management: track your work and spend on matters... but that's a different story.) The trick is as follows:
1. Look at to-do list with ten things under "TUESDAY."
2. Change the word "TUESDAY" to "WEDNESDAY."
That's all there is to it! Now I can easily get done anything I need to get done in a given day. I used this trick to great effect today.
