When things go wrong
• Everything is not as easy as it sounds.
• Among all the troubles that one will occur whose damage is greater.
• Matters that are neglected always go from bad to worse.
• It’s usually at the end of the work when we realize what we should have started it with.
• There is never enough time to do everything correctly on the first try, but there is always time to redo it.
• Every decision is made more than one time.
• No matter how carefully you plan what you will do, working time will anyway be spent on something different.
• The work of ten people is done better by eight men than by twelve ones.
- Eisenhower with his idea about important non-urgent tasks.
- And Parkinson with his law.
- And Ivy Lee with his six tasks.
According to Murphy's laws, any of our actions only makes things worse, since "every solution creates new problems." That's all. Time management is on the ground.
- Have an ironical attitude to troubles.
- Try to analyze Murphy’s laws in your life and try to be a little wittier than they are. If you believe that "the other line always moves faster", give up the habit of running from one line to another — thus you cannot change the situation, you will just loose more energy. If you think that "as soon as a letter is sent, great thoughts immediately start coming to your mind", always send letters first to a fake email and only then, after some new insights, send it to the real one. If you always forget when events start and constantly come either one hour earlier or an hour later, set the reminder for all tasks with dates in SingularityApp. Well, be creative.
Now SingularityApp is not only a powerful task scheduler, but also a task manager for teams: in July we launched project sharing functionality in beta mode. Many users and we were looking forward to it — to develop the app without switching to other programs to set tasks and work in a team toward common projects.Summer Novelties in SingularityApp: Teamwork
We regularly make new releases: on some of them we add new cool features, on others we fix problems, improve performance and interface, dress up the app. At users’ request, we created a separate section on our website with the version historyNew on the Site: Version History
