Preface to Time Management Articles

As a young pastor, I realized that my weakness in administrative skills
limited my effectiveness.  In my efforts to overcome this limitation, I
discovered a book entitled
How to Get More Done in Less Time by
Joseph D. Cooper.  The book changed my life by introducing me to a
new vocabulary that communicated key concepts.

The book is out of print, and my efforts to find a copy of the 1971 edition
(Doubleday & Company, Inc., 1971) proved useless.  Used booksellers
often advertise the 1971 edition but in error send an earlier edition, which
does not measure up.

These articles contain many of the key concepts, contaminated no doubt
by my adaptation to my own purposes over the years.  If you can find a
copy of the 1971 edition, I recommend that you read it for the concepts
presented.  In the meantime, it seemed good to share some of the insights
I gained which draw on the original concepts.
