The philosophy of time management employed by businesses is a favorite topic of mine. I’ll ramble about it briefly.
When I was a small business I was known for a fast turnaround from when I got an order for audio services and when the job was done. Many clients were not so quick paying the invoice.
Now in retirement my slogan is “Slower But Better,” which gives fair warning that I might not rush. I suggest that a business post a message on their website and in print explaining why responses might be delayed, if that’s the case, so that a customer is “in the loop.”
When I built the AMT5000 I did so in slow motion, resistors one day, capacitors the next, over a span of three days. The result was a fortunate lack of mistakes.
But I talk to people who live the hurried life style, and what I find is that they detach quickly from a conversation held yesterday and are confused if I refer to that same conversation a day or more later. For them it is gone and forgotten.
My “to do” list will take an estimated 400 years to complete. That helps me realize that being rushed will not help.
