"Keep a pocket or desk diary with you. This surely beats jotting notes on scraps of paper, three-by-five cards, or paper napkins from a restaurant."
"Don't start off a call with, 'Hi, Joe. How are you?' This is an invitation to a long conversation on current events, family life, golf, vacation and so forth. A better start might be, 'Hi, Joe. I know you're busy. I have just one question.' Learn how to terminate conversations. Consider the telephone as a message machine and get off the line promptly."
"You have to ask yourself some questions. Which of your time-wasters are generated by you? Which are generated externally, by events or by other people? Of those generated externally, which could you control or at least influence? When you have answered these questions thoughtfully, you may see that in you lie both the major causes and the major solutions of your problems with wasted time. If so, you will doubtless come to this conclusion: At the heart of time management is management of self."
