These tips inspire me to remain “productive” and stay motivated and focused.
That they are focused on my needs/interests as a professor, from one who knows. I tend to read through them quickly and move them to an electronic file or if there is something especially valuable I need to think about NOW I may print them out and highlight them.
Your TTPTs are a godsend… Please keep writing these TTPTs! They are making a difference! Each week I find something that ends up sounding like it was written just for me! Thank you!
I find that your tips seem to inspire me; my goal is to work more focused and stay organized.
Love the focus of individual choices to make faculty members more aware that their lifestyles are their responsibilities, important for junior faculty.
You kindly offer something for everyone! The tips are usually concise and often times written in a light-hearted style, while still providing valuable tips! Access: I read the tips in email format on the day I receive them…and I’ve saved several of them into a Word document for future reference!
My message was a “thank you” for your TTPT’s for Professors, especially this week’s. It was so on point for me, and I learned things that never occurred to me. Since I am distracted more than ever before as a new department chair with so many interruptions and new responsibilities, your tips helped me understand my dysfunction. I realize that I must take steps to gain control of my work load. I have had many embarrassing consequences, such as grammatical and structural writing errors (You’re so right!), among other mistakes, because of my disorganization.
An occasional tune-up is SO helpful. The TTPTs keep me mindful.
Much of what we should do to manage our time better is already known, even though most of us do not practice it. This information helped my to change my attitude about time planning and uncertainty which is exactly what I think most people need.
The ideas help me organize my life and I learn things that are current. I read the tips every time they are posted (I often copy for future reference) and many times reorganize as identified in the tips.
Meggin says, “I have been writing and publishing the Top Ten Productivity Tips (the original series) since early 2004. I am happy to say that thousands of folks are subscribers and new people sign up each week. We’re all learning together! “By late 2009, I knew I wanted to expand to serve even more folks who were interested in being more peacefully, predictably productive and thus, all 6 of the new series were created, and are continuing as we enter 2015.
