Tim Garvin Jr. is executive vice president of Phoenix-based City Property Management Co., which specializes in management services for homeowners associations and does work for more than 300 HOAs in metro Phoenix and across Arizona. The company is celebrating its 40th anniversary.
We caught with Garvin who outlined one of his busy days all while making time for Halloween costume shopping and bedtime stories.
7:00 to 7:30 a.m.: I got up and enjoyed breakfast with my wife and two daughters. I then got showered and dressed up in my best western attire to attend the Home Builders Association of Central Arizona’s trade show that was themed ‘Not Our First Rodeo’ at WestWorld of Scottsdale.
8:30 a.m.: We exhibited at our booth all day and had great exchanges from familiar faces as well as some new ones within the Arizona homebuilding community.
4:00 p.m.: After the trade show I headed home to attend to my emails and management of some internal projects followed by family dinner and Halloween costume shopping.
5:00 to 7:00 p.m.: Halloween shopping
8:00 p.m.: When I arrived home for the second time, I read five short books to my 2-year-old daughter and put her to bed.
9:00 p.m.: When I had another moment, I went back to read and respond to more emails and then read a chapter of the Harvard Business Review’s article collection on Managing Yourself. I recommend this book to anyone with a management role. The article Who’s Got The Monkey? had a significant and immediate impact on how to visualize task management within my company. You can read more on that here. (keep in mind it was written in the 1970’s and modern practices need apply to fully augment the strategy).
