PIs are busy professionals. No matter what day it is, you always have too much to get done and not enough hours to do it. But with some expert guidance on how to partition your work day more effectively, you can find time to get through those pesky To-Do lists and get back in the lab to do what you do best!

This brand new two-sided reference card "50 Time Management Tactics for PIs," can help you plan your day better, and accomplish more in less time.

Here's a preview:

TIP #31:  Don’t allocate your time based on who demands it most. Rather, allocate based on who deserves it. But don’t be negative or arrogant as if to imply, “You don’t deserve my time.” 

TIP #47: Decide if you’re a racehorse or a tortoise. A racehorse is someone who thrives on the overload. Having lots to do is what really gets a racehorse’s adrenaline pumping. A tortoise is someone who functions best at a more measured pace. Racehorses and tortoises accomplish just as much in this world. They just do it differently. If you’re a racehorse, bunch as many staff meetings together as possible. But if you’re a tortoise, you should spread them out.

These 50 sensible tips will start helping you right away. And they’re available right now for a special introductory price of only $49 for the PDF version! (Reg. price $79). That’s just about a buck a tip!  For print version, please add $12.50 more.
