The Yes/No Dictionary Part 3: Time Orientation

by Mike Clayton  - August 20, 2013


The Yes/No Book is filled with new and specific concepts in personal effectiveness and time management.� To make a valuable resource for readers, and to introduce non-readers to some of the core concepts of the book, I am preparing a dictionary.

It will be in 13 parts (Superstitious? I�m not) and will have around 50 entries.

Part 3: Time Orientation

When you do something can matter a lot, so Chapter 7 of The Yes/No Book explores when to say �YES, now� and when to say �NO, not now�. It is also about how use the time constructively, when you put things off and procrastinate with a purpose.

Part 7 of The Yes/No Dictionary will contain entries relating to Procrastination.


Time-critical activity (noun); activity for which you have no discretion about how you use your time: you must do them now. If you don�t, you will either not be able to get them done or, if you do, their value will be diminished.

Time-charmed activity (noun); activity that you can do when you choose. And often, if you choose well, you can make it easier or more effective to do them, or you can do them better, by virtue of when you chose to do them.

Time-expired activity (noun); activity for which it is too late. Doing something will no longer make any difference.
