How Do You Manage Your Time?

It seems as though we have more to do every day. There is never enough time to get it all done, and we find ourselves becoming overwhelmed quite often. There has to be a better way of doing things than to keep adding to the next day’s to-do list. We shouldn’t go to bed and lie there unable to sleep because we’re making a mental checklist of everything we have to squeeze in when the sun rises again.

For some people, learning to manage their time effectively is a daunting task. It takes time to get organized… and time is something we have precious little of. I know that I personally keep myself in check by using iCal. If I have something important to attend to, I note it down on my calendar. I spend so much of my day on the Internet due to the type of work I do, though, that it’s nearly impossible not to get distracted. The next thing I know, I’ve read six stories and all of the resulting comments. It’s not that I don’t want to know what else is going on in the world. I simply need to keep myself on task and set aside specific times to catch up on what others are doing.

How do you manage your time? Have you found the magical answer we all need in order to help us become more focused? If so, I’d sure like to hear about it.

Would You Give up a Finger for an iPad?

I’ve seen people in my community claim they would give their left arm to own an iPad. When it comes down to it, though, I really doubt any of them would go that far. However, a thief may just take you at your word. The iPad is hot… and everyone wants one, whether they want to pay for the device or not.

Denver Police released a shocking surveillance video of a thief stealing a new iPad from a man in the Cherry Creek Mall. Bill Jordan didn’t even buy the tablet for himself, nor did he know what an iPad is. He was on a mission to purchase a gift for a coworker when the thief literally ripped the bag from his hand. All of the skin and tendons were torn completely off, leaving the bone bare and exposed. The finger had to be amputated, a fact made even worse for Jordan as he is left-handed.

Mr. Jordan is understandably irate over the entire situation. “I hope you understand what you’ve done to my life and my family’s life for a simple piece of apparatus that’ll be junk in a couple of years.”

I guess the iPad is more of a hot commodity than we thought. However, I can’t help but agree with Jordan. The iPad that was stolen from him will be obsolete in the near future. There will be new iterations released that will be even more sought-after than this generation of the product is. Someone has already gotten hurt. Will the next story we see have a more heinous outcome? Thieves really will stop at nothing, apparently.
