Around the World of Time Management


Since embarking on this blog journey just a couple of months ago, I have discovered a number of other bloggers who are far wiser than I.  Here is a brief tour of some of my favorite time management experts in the blogosphere:

South Florida-based writer Cindy Krischer Goodman maintains the Work/Life Balancing Act blog for the Miami Herald.  Her primary target audience is moms who work outside the home, but Cindy has a lot to teach readers of both genders and in all stages of life about everything from organizing your desk to using social media at work.  Her blog incorporates some of her well-researched articles for the print edition of the Herald.

Follow Cindy on Twitter at @balancegal.

Time management consultant Francis Wade of Kingston, Jamaica dedicates his blog, 2Time, to sharing “edgy, new ideas for getting yourself unstuck from a time management rut.”  His posts are always insightful and offer great food-for-thought on how to better manage your time.  The 2Time site also features some wonderful podcasts and video interviews that are worth checking out.

Follow Francis on Twitter at @fwade.

Like me, Mike Arieh Medina of Mati City, Philipines is a busy graduate student trying to juggle multiple priorities.  He chronicles his journey on his blog, Grad School Jungle.  Mike covers many facets of the graduate school experience, but it’s clear from posts like “5 Time Saving Tips” and “Top 10 Time Wasters” how essential good time management is to his success as a student.

Grad School Jungle is also on Facebook.

Author and project management expert Dr. Mike Clayton of Southampton, U.K. (isn’t that where the Titanic departed from?) recently released his fourth book, Brilliant Time Management and has developed a nice blog on the same subject.  There, he offers readers easy-to-follow practical techniques for overcoming challenges like procrastination and multi-tasking.

Follow Mike on Twitter at @mikeclayton01.

With 17 books under his belt, Harold Taylor is one of Canada’s most renowned time management experts.  His Taylor Time Blog focuses primarily on the importance of prioritizing, managing stress, and maintaining a healthy work/life balance.  Based on the bio posted on his site, it sounds like he learned those lessons the hard way.   

Follow Harold on Twitter at @haroldtaylor.

And then there’s little old me in Memphis, Tennessee, “green” with envy that these wise people have mastered the skill of time management, and at the same time grateful that they are willing to share their hard-earned wisdom with me on their blogs.

I’ve started a Twitter list of time management gurus and am always looking for more people to add.  So please let me know: Where in the world are your favorite time management bloggers?

Thanks to Grant Smith for guiding me through the process of embedding a Google Map into my blog.

      Thanks Mike. Amen to that!
      How much longer do you have in grad school? I have just 5 weeks to go – so close, and yet so far. Trying to overcome feelings of total burnout and make it to the finish line! Good luck to you.

    Don’t forget Steven Covey and David Allen.

  4. Good post! I have a random question for you. How do you get your blog indexed by bing? I have a related web blog.

    • Thanks for reading, Bea. I honestly have no idea about being indexed by bing. I think that WordPress, the platform which hosts my blog, does that automatically. Perhaps one of my more tech-savvy readers knows the answer. Feel free to chime in!
