The article talked about the author realizing how stressed out he was at the length of time it took him to dial on a rotary phone (remember those?) while on vacation and that was a wake up call for him.
Among his tips in the article (can't find it through Google thus far):
- slow down: Ask yourself, what's my hurry?
- Don't multi-task inefficiently: Give one task your full attention
- DO what matters to you most
The article also told of a woman whose company provided a BlackBerry so she could always be in touch--and how much more relaxed she became when she changed jobs to a place that didn't do so (after getting over the addiction to the constant communication).
Oh, yes, I think that will be part of my 2007 reading.
