I will humbly recommend reading/listening to Getting Things Done instead of, or even in addition to, Time Management for System Administrators. They work quite differently. GTD worked better for me as a sysadmin. permalink

Good recommendation - reading both really helped things gel for me. Getting Things Done is more abstract, TMfSA is like an example of how those principles might be applied imho. permalink

I would highly recommend getting a physical copy or at a minimum the eBook copy. There are some good picture references you will lose in the audiobook version. As for relevance it is still extremely valid and good advice in general even for non-SysAdmins working in very fluid environments. permalink

Recently I became fed up with always jumping around from ticket to ticket, and project to project. I setup calendar times in my Outlook that are set to recur daily, where my morning is dedicated to tickets, and afternoon is dedicated to project. Now it's not a rigid schedule, but it makes me sit down and try to work on all aspects of my daily responsibilities. Instead of burying myself in one or two things for the day. That way people with tickets and project both get some attention each day. I do not address all tickets\project, but I do make consistent progress on each group almost every day. My next step is to institute a better priority system and FIFO mentality. Reducing the people that think they can come in to the office or call me to jump ahead of the others in my Queue. Telling them 'Put in a ticket', has helped a lot with that. permalink

better priority system You are the best priority system around. The mental triage process for an incident is usually both swift and correct. Don't get too convoluted with any systems. permalink

Sorry, meant a mental as well as software based priority system. I understand that external factors always will effect the software priority. Thank you for pointing that out. permalink

Personally, I find it more than relevant still. I try and re-read it every year to refresh my memory on how important the principles are. The Practice of Systems and Network Administration, by the same author, is also a must read. I bought their new book The Practice of Cloud Administration but have not read it yet. permalink

You should read it. I did so earlier this year. Worth the time. permalink

Would you say it is more about broad principles rather than specifically the public cloud? I.e. at PuppetConf, Jeffery Snover of Microsoft was pushing the "cloud is a concept not a location". permalink

The process in the book is great and I use it daily. I don't however use it for my personal stuff and use a printed paper speed daily vs the planner. His scripts are dated but the core content of the book is great. permalink

I agree with everyone - extremely relevant. In fact, I need to read my copy again and freshen up now that I picked up a more relaxed gig and can actually invest in "me" and "company" vs. my last gig where things quickly grew reactive, constantly applying water to fire. permalink

I don't think it would work as an audiobook. I know I flip back & forth between the three chapters on "the cycle" often. There's a few picture example of the time management system that's hard to describe through audio. I wonder what's Tom's daily setup is like now. Since our PDAs now isn't as limited as the PDAs in 2005. permalink
