Time Management Secrets

Glenn Reynolds‘ ability to juggle many things — husband, father, law professor, author, magazine writer, and prolific blogger — is legendary.  So, how does he do it?

I schedule the big, important things—teaching class, spending time with my family, working on major projects—and then just slip the smaller things into the interstices that are left behind.  (Blogging is ideally suited for this approach). I also don’t watch much TV, which opens up a LOT of time.

I knew there’d be a catch.

Also, he gets “thousands” of emails a day, and these form the impetus for most of his blog posts.

    As a bachelor homeowner entrepreneur with a dog, whose only full-time employee is a widowed single mother, I can assure you that being a spouse (i.e., having a spouse) hardly aggravates one’s “time management” challenges.

  2. Of course, when one’s blogging consists mostly of links, and commentary like “Heh.” and “indeed” that helps manage time as well 😉
