It's only fitting that a video by Mark McCormack, author of What They Don't Teach You at Harvard Business School, comes packaged with a couple of commercials. He's a packaging expert. In this venture, McCormack's partner has even gotten its name into the title - Federal Express Presents: What They Still Don't Teach You at Harvard Business School (NAC Home Video, 60 minutes, $29.95), based on the sequel to McCormack's first best-selling book. McCormack is the man who signed up Arnold Palmer 25 years ago and - through sponsorships, product endorsements and licensing - helped turn Palmer and fellow golfers such as Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player into marketing entities.

People are frequently amazed at the amount of work I do. "Dave," they say, "here you are, cranking out in a single week the number of columns that many other columnists take a full day to write, and yet you still find the time to drink beer! What is your secret?" The answer is: Time Management. If you expect to succeed in any field of endeavor, you must understand that time is a very precious commodity, like the barbecue sauce they give you at McDonald's when you purchase Chicken McNuggets; it is not something available in plentiful supply in plastic squirt bottles, but rather something doled out sparingly in hard-to-open containers so tiny that since 1983, McDonald's has sold 23.6 million McNuggets, but handed out only five total ounces of barbecue sauce, three ounces of which wound up as indelible stains on my son's shorts.

When the groundhog sees its shadow, there are usually six more weeks of winter. When Allan Domb sees a shadow, it means that someone is paying up to $2,500 to watch the Center City Realtor work. "I'll usually have about seven or eight people a year who fly in from around the country to shadow me," said Domb, who typically sells in excess of $60 million in high-rise condominiums and is considered the leading industry expert on condo sales. "They arrive at 8 a.m. and leave at 7 p.m.," said Domb, who spends much of his 12-hour days on the telephone.

Sears did it. J.C. Penney did it. Now, Day-Timers Inc., the Lehigh Valley-based maker of time-management diary formats and other accessories, has staked a claim to the dual roles of retail and mail order. Last weekend, the company's second retail outlet, known simply as Day- Timer, opened in the Cherry Hill Mall, proof that the experiment begun a year ago at the King of Prussia Plaza was a success. Two more centers are set to open in North Jersey this fall, said Mark Ladouceur, vice president of sales and business development.

A desire to spend more time with his family inspired Glenside lawyer Robert C. Gerhard 3d to write an article on time management for lawyers that appeared in the September/October issue of The Pennsylvania Lawyer. "In light of the Sept. 11 tragedy, the article was especially timely as people reallocate time commitments to what's really important," he said. Gerhard notes that time management is a common problem for lawyers because of deadlines, pressure to log billable hours, and increasing competition: "Law is the kind of work that will take as much of your life as you are willing to give it. . . . Leaving the office is the most challenging thing for me since there is always more to do. " He thinks that time management is relevant to other professionals and business people as well: "Time is scarce for everybody, not just lawyers.

There's still as much time in a day or a week as there was 20 years ago, even 100, but overwhelmed Americans have the sense that there's a lot less of it. "An hour today is different from an hour 20 years ago," says Swarthmore College sociologist Kenneth Gergen. "It isn't reflected in units of time but how rushed people feel. " People will tell you that; they'll say they have less than 20 hours of free time a week, according to Americans' Time of Use Project at the University of Maryland.

Let's just say one thing from the start: No moldy apple cores, small animals of suspicious origin, or press releases dated 1968 were found on Christine Hibbard's desk last week when it was attacked by a master time manager. Hibbard, a book buyer for the University of Pennsylvania bookstore, permitted time management guru Jeffrey J. Mayer to use her desk for a demonstration of his ruthless organization technique. She won the professional cleanup at a booksellers' convention. Mayer clasped his hands in glee as he surveyed the challenge: an average- size desk with papers, catalogs and calendars piled high on its top, shelves bulging with books and folders, drawers stuffed with notebooks and stationery.

You come home from work, tired and hungry, looking forward to a good dinner and a relaxing evening. And then the dreaded homework monster rears its ugly head. Your daughter announces that a 10-page paper on the mating habits of New Zealand guinea pigs is due the next day. Your son whines that he has 100 math problems to do but he can't remember the difference between a dividend and a divisor. Pandemonium erupts. Instead of a good dinner, you microwave yesterday's leftovers.

GALLOWAY TOWNSHIP, N.J. - Stacy Lewis had wanted this to be the weekend she returned to the top spot in the world rankings to avoid the distraction of what she called "all the extra story lines" heading into the U.S. Women's Open later this month. Mission accomplished. Lewis replaced Inbee Park as the world's No. 1 player Sunday in the ShopRite LPGA Classic, shooting a methodical 4-under-par 67 to grab a 6-stroke victory on the Bay Course of the Stockton Seaview Hotel and Golf Club.

I HAD a birthday this past Sunday, and I received a card that depicted four dogs playing poker. One of the dogs is looking at its cards thinking, "Whoa! A straight flush! I must not wag my tail, I must not wag my tail, I must not wag my tail!" As I read it, I contemplated a long offseason and the pain of the agonizing loss to the Saints and thought to myself, "I must not think about the Eagles, I must not think about the Eagles. " I will try to adhere to that admonition but probably won't succeed.

Often heard though seldom seen, Wolfgang Rihm is considered Germany's greatest contemporary composer. But he lives such a circumscribed existence he's in danger of becoming an enigma. By no means is he a J.D. Salinger-level enigma, but you won't find him coaching the world's great orchestras in the best way to play his complex works - though often they'd welcome the advice. And don't bother asking him to come to the United States for the high-profile performance of Astralis - written in 2001 and one of his most circulated works - on Friday by the Crossing choir at St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Chestnut Hill, which will be repeated Sunday at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art. Getting him to leave his hometown of Karlsruhe takes some persuading; there and in his tiny Berlin apartment, he writes one uncompromising work after another for the likes of violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter and conductor Riccardo Chailly.

If the United Parcel Service Inc. forecast is correct, Tuesday - that's tomorrow - should be the busiest day of the year for Jill Schubert and the 15,205 UPS employees she supervises from its regional headquarters in South Philadelphia. Shipping volume is already up from 2012 and Tuesday is peak day with 29 million packages expected to be delivered globally, up from 27.5 million last year. "It's controlled madness or controlled chaos," said Schubert, 51, president of operations.

THERE IS a chance that Chip Kelly's biggest flaw is the reputation that preceded his arrival, and that what we have witnessed over the last couple of weeks is not a matter of NFL defensive coordinators catching up to him but the lack of talent at his disposal. Maybe he is a victim of marketing, flattened by the snowball of expectations that accompanied his last-second decision to take his talents to South Broad. Perhaps it should not come as a surprise that Kelly's offense looks like those of a lot of first-year head coaches whose rosters are still in the process of being turned over: out of sync, borderline dysfunctional, at times lacking coherent game management.

Jacklyn Pezzato is a threat no matter where she is on the softball field. In the circle, she is Shawnee's ace starting pitcher. As a junior last season, she went 19-3 with a 0.93 ERA for a team that was 23-4. In the batter's box, she is the Renegades' leadoff hitter. She batted .518 in 2012 and broke Shawnee's single-season hits record with 44 and the school's single-season runs record with 37. When she's not pitching, she plays third base, the "hot corner," arguably the toughest defensive position to play.

STATE COLLEGE - What does football mean to a guy like P.J. Byers? Heck, what does just being a student mean to a guy like P.J. Byers, when he knows that not too long from now, he'll be enrolled in something so much more meaningful in the grand scheme of things? Byers, a senior fullback at Penn State, is an active-duty member of the U.S. Navy. After graduation, he will be a commissioned officer and train to become a dive specialist, taking care of underwater explosives as a Navy Explosive Ordinance Disposal officer.

Glassboro senior Asia Pendleton received a crash course in time management Saturday, the second day of the South Jersey sectional track and field championships at Buena. Pendleton, who competes in four events, will have to juggle even more this week when she vies for four state titles, all before she attends the prom. "Next week is going to be hectic, but now I'm prepared for it," she said Saturday. Pendleton won two events in Group 1 over the weekend, and placed second in two. Her first places, in the long jump and high hurdles, came Saturday.
