I don’t know anyone who had read more books, attended more conferences, listened to more podcasts, watched more VHS videos on the subject of Time Management. In other words I am an expert in Time Management. Those of you who know me can stop laughing now, people are starting to stare.
In today’s podcast I share what I have learned about time management from all my years of study and research. I also share a new technique that I am using to help me stay focused, its simple and it’s free!
Awesome, Craig. Love the humor & insight, including the 33-minute timer.
Thanks – Hope the times works for you!
I don’t know why the person selected 33 min, 33 secs, as the magic unit of to-do list, but it struck me that 33.33 is a multiple of .666, which is approximately the Fibonacci constant, aka “the golden ratio.” That constant is the idea that nature loves the 2/3rds fraction and that we humans gravitate and build upon the 2/3rds proportion. Successful and appealing architecture, pictures, compositions, novels, physiques, etc., are structured to have a climax at the 2/3 mark.
Curious, I looked this up on wikipedia and found that 3.33 happens to be [“The ratio of successive terms in this sum tends to] the reciprocal of the golden ratio.”
Disclaimer: This research was done within the 33.33 window.
I wonder if someone was to lazy to enter 30 minutes which would mean moving your fingers to two different keys that 3333 was just easier to type.
