Part II: Organizing Information  > Organizing Your Day

Chapter 4. Organizing Your Day

Ty Loren Carlson is extremely proud of the new company he started two months ago—Adventure Works. He’s been surprised, however, at how many things there have been to do! He thought he would be spending his time taking clients on river adventures in Wyoming, exploring the national park to create new itineraries, and talking on the phone with potential clients. He’s doing all that, but seemingly thousands of other duties too. If he’s not dealing with the insurance company, he’s meeting with his bookkeeper. If he’s not getting a business license, he’s giving talks to the local Rotary Club. It seems as though with all the appointments he has, he’s always late in returning calls and his To Do list has gotten completely out of control.

This crushing experience isn’t unique to entrepreneurs. One of the major challenges facing today’s knowledge worker is trying to deal with an overabundance of information and an overwhelming number of things to do.
