All in good time

Now CEO of the Canadian arm of IT distributor Synnex Corp. and member of the board of Research in Motion, Estill learned to worry about time when building a Guelph, Ont.-based distribution company he founded and then took public before selling it to Synnex in 2004.

In fact he now calls himself a time management guru who has read at least 40 books and 100 articles, and attended a half a dozen courses on the topic. His latest work is an e-book – actually, a 77-page PDF – a distillation of what he has gleaned from them and his personal experience.

The e-book, and his tapes and CD support his multitasking ethos – a practical, if condensed (relative to some of the tomes out there) system for getting a busy executive’s life in order.

There’s the usual urging of setting goals, although with the encouragement that they be SMART – specific, measureable, attainable and timed. He also outlines how to work with to-do lists and advice on how to do away with Post-it notes.
