PART FOUR: In support of The Executive Functioning Series

Quick Review:

In the introduction to this part of the article, I went over some of the concepts underlying the systems approach and why it works.

  1. Time management is all we need to prosper in our today competitive world. It is important for executives, managers and directors to major on thinking and on time management. thank you for this post.


  2. Thanks again, John, for reblogging. I have observed that “merely” following the 5 tips in this 4-part article can transform a life a frustration and failure to one of calm and productivity. It really doesn’t take all that much attention to it once the habits are developed. It DOES take some attention to developing the habits, however.

        1. I think that many of us agonize over errors when we’re trying to establish better ways of doing things. This happens, I believe, because we take ourselves too seriously. As you say, it’s better if we laugh off the mistakes.

          1. Yep! It’s amazing what an attitude adjustment can do.

            When we agonize over our mistakes (missteps) we get frustrated and make still more – or quit taking steps, concluding that nothing ever works for us anyway.

            When we laugh it off and learn from the experience, we tweak our systems and things start moving forward.
