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
Mr. Frederick Winslow Taylor, 1856-1915 (Wikipedia)
Let’s get into the day’s theme:
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.
