Daylorist – taylorism, lore and some


This will be a series of blog posts where I present different ideas around optimizing life and business in a slightly taylorist frame of reference.

Taylor? Our indispensable (past) theorist, from the industrial revolution’s
core era:

Mr. Frederick Winslow Taylor, 1856-1915 (Wikipedia)

Let’s get into the day’s theme:

My morning

Let’s say for the sake of setting us up, that on a Monday morning I..

  • I want to jog 4 km before work
  • need to take kids to the kindergarten, also before leaving to work
  • crucially need to buy a bottle of dishwashing liquid from the shop
  • need to get a shower before leaving to work

What’s the optimal order for achieving these? I need to get everything done. We don’t consider yet relative timing, so as long as all those 4 things get done before leaving work, we’re fine.

Drop a note, comment, or at least think about it. Will be back tomorrow, on Tuesday 13th September, 2016.
