This is just what I needed to hear this morning, thanks for keeping me 'on-track'

I've worked at home, for myself for 15 years and I'm always having to retool how I work. As the years have gone on, my commitments have changed and this forces me to rethink priorities. It also means I have to be able to change. Working for yourself means you have to be very very motivated, disciplined and yet very flexible. I love reading how you organize your time-it's always helpful to hear how others do it. Thanks, as always, for all you share. It inspires me to do more of this in my own blog!

Great post. I really, really enjoy it when we get a glimpse into the life of highly successful people and see how they get it done. I've been on a similar efficiency and productivity quest for the last year or so, and it's amazing what can be accomplished with such a plan. Thanks again!

I'm always fascinated by people who are able to get a lot done. There were two things which you've suggested that I haven't been doing.

One is to leave some extra just-in-case time should anything unforeseen happen, and the other is to make up lost hours right away.

Thanks for the tips!

You are amazing - thanks for sharing this in such detail! I often get asked the same question and don't have nearly as clear of an answer (nor do I have such smooth-running systems). Love all the tips in this post, and congrats on all the great work you do :D

P.S. The fact that you do all this with a young child absolutely blows me away! Thanks again for sharing - this was one of the most helpful time management posts I've read in a long time.

Excellent Advice!! What you're doing here is really exceptional. Thank you for sharing.

@Kingsley: Thank you so much!

@Jenny: Thank you, this means so much to me knowing how much YOU know about productivity!

@DC: Glad you found them helpful!

@Marcus: Good luck and let me know what you find out!

@Rosalind: Thanks for pointing out that priorities don't remain static and that this plan might look very different in a year.

@Maggie: You made my day!
