Get a Life! Part 1: Population Growth

Dear Friends,

Why isn't good old time management the answer to the pressures you face? Because it doesn't address the underlying problems. To effectively manage your time you need to understand the 5 Mega-Realities and know what your priorities are.

Its okay to apply personal control techniques once you fully understand the larger forces at play.
Remember the 5 Mega-Realities:
1. Population growth
2. An expanding volume of knowledge
3. Mass media growth and electronic addiction
4. The paper trail culture
5. An overabundance of choices

This week's segment is about Population Growth and how it impacts our life and a few Life Saving tips that you can apply.

(Taken in part from "Get a Life! Living and Working at a Comfortable Pace in a High-Speed World".)

#1 - Population Growth

Every 33 months, world population grows by 300,000,000 people - which is the current population of the U.S.A. The world is crowded and becoming more so. If you presently
live in and/or commute to an urban area, gridlock will be a part of your daily life. And the time delays of gridlock aren't confined to commuter arteries. Shoppers, air travelers,
vacationers, campers - everyone in motion is beginning to feel the effects.

Live Savers:

Since your commuting time is inevitably bound to rise, consider the possible options.

You could:
Move closer to work
Change your job and work closer to home
Telecommute more often
Commute during off-peak hours
Become self-employed and work at home

Or use your commuting time to support your priorities:
Take a seminar in your car with audio tapes
Record a letter to your child or spouse
Catch up on paperwork on the train
Mentally plan your family's next vacation
Rehearse an upcoming speech or presentation

To aviod gridlock delays when you shop, travel or vacation:
Avoid weekend shopping, use a weeknight for errands
Use a tele-grocery or shopping service
Give a good travel agent your flight preferences
Make flight connections at less-frequented airports
Book your vacations on off-peak times

Next week we will discuss:
