Q&A with Davis: Questions about Time Management
Reader Submitted Questions
When did you start applying the time management principles (ex. Paretto and 80-20 rule)?
I started using a planner in middle school and then the Parkinson’s Law and the Paretto/80-20 rule when I read about them in high school.
What would you do when tasks take longer to finish and your mind is not in the zone to tackle them? Do you switch to another item on the to-do list or continue to push through the time allocated for it?
I do advocate to-do lists because they don’t give you a sense of what is important and what is not. To-do lists encourage quantity instead of quality.
