Making progress on your projects

It’s been quieter around the library this week so I’ve been able to catch up on some blog reading, including this wonderful tip from a 32 page paper on time management via Tame the Web:

“The most obvious way … is to work on your own projects first every day, even if it’s onlyfor half an hour. Whatever interruptions come along later, you will at least have the satisfaction of having made some progress towards your own goals.”
The paper has a lot of good advice on dealing with the email inbox. I know how often I get distracted by messages popping into the box all day long! I’m going to give some of the author’s suggestions a try!

  1. Hi, I am writing a post today and want to have a few real librarians come on over and comment on a question I have. If you can, please come over sometime after 12 noon today (Friday, Dec. 28) EST. I’m in Boston, Mass., US.
