For 168 Hours, I am still seeking people to participate in “time makeovers.” This involves keeping a time log for 168 hours (one week), and answering a few questions about things you like and don’t like on your schedule. I’ll then give a few suggestions for tune-ups. Ideally, people participating in these makeovers would be willing to participate in book publicity a year from now.
Keeping track of your time is not too laborious. I’ve been doing these makeovers on myself for the past few weeks and have found them helpful for identifying places where time can be used more effectively — everything from stocking the freezer with frozen meat to reading fiction during Jasper’s weekend naps.
If you’d like to give it a whirl, please email me at lvanderkam at yahoo dot com. I’m looking for people in all walks of life and in different geographic regions. I have spreadsheets I can send you to make the process of recording your hours easier. Thanks!
