Scientific Management

When I was in high-school, I discovered Scientific Management or “Taylorism”, that was invented by the American Winslow Taylor, at the end of the 19th century.

This method of work management addressed and improved workflows in order to enhance labor productivity. I've always liked the idea, but it's only later in life that I began to apply it whenever I could, either on for specific projects or just for repetitive, daily tasks.

Not only does this saves me time on mundane activities, but it also take the angst, the "paralysis" and temptation for procrastinating that often accompany any “big project.” My mastery of the process isn't always perfect, but at least, I'm aware of it and try to get it better as time goes by...
