The Ivy Lee Method

The Ivy Lee Method is a simple yet effective time management strategy that involves prioritizing six tasks each day. The article on Timely's blog explains the method and its origins, which date back to the early 20th century when productivity consultant Ivy Lee was hired by Charles Schwab, president of Bethlehem Steel, to help him and his team improve their productivity. The Ivy Lee Method is still relevant today and involves writing down six important tasks the night before and then focusing on completing them in order of priority the next day.

The article also discusses the benefits of using this method, such as increased focus and productivity, and how it can be adapted to suit individual needs. Additionally, it suggests combining the Ivy Lee Method with other time management strategies to optimize productivity further.
