What can I do in 60 minutes each day? Well, you can watch your favorite one hour crime drama – either CSI Cyber or Criminal Minds – and still have 18 minutes left over if you record it and skip through the commercials. You can order a pizza and pick it up or have it delivered. You can watch one quarter of a Kevin Costner epic flop movie like “The Postman.” Or, you can manage a project. Yes, I said manage a project.
I'm not one for multitasking. I don't think men are really good at it – it's how our brains work. So, if you happen to be overseeing say, 5-6 projects at a time, then intent to spend 60 minutes each day on each project, certainly you have a project that really requires the full hour and some that don't. Maybe one is running full steam ahead and two are not seeing much action at the moment. Spend two hours on the one that needs it and 30 minutes each on the two that are not requiring much attention right now. Basically, an hour per project per day should be the goal.
