Harold Taylor's Time Management Tip

Harold Taylor made a point well worth sharing in a newsletter I received today. The essay is entitled "Choose people over things" and it includes these lines (extracted from a much longer essay):

Make a list of the people you really enjoy spending time with. How much time did you spend with those people during the past week? Last month? Last year? Chances are there are people – perhaps family members – who are being crowded out of your life because of your busyness.

Never end a conversation with a good friend by saying, "Let’s get together sometime." Instead, say, "Let’s schedule a time when we can get together." Then do it.
