Manage Your Time, Manage Your Life
How many times have you looked at the clock and say, “where did the time go”? This happens to all of us! In this blog post I just want to show you the importance of how if you manage your time, you manage your life.
Manage your time…manage your life
Motivation: You have to be motivated to manage your time. It takes effort and determination to want to change the way that you think about time. Motivation is key!
Prioritize: Often times we are so busy doing things that are not a priority and that have nothing to do with our goals. This “busy-ness” gives the illusion that we are being productive. Whether you are a parent, entrepreneur, and/or corporate executive, you should always prioritize the tasks that are most important. By doing this you will find that you are maximizing your time and getting more important things done.
Schedule: Plan EVERYTHING. There are plenty of apps, widgets, and functions that will help us create and adhere to a schedule. Schedule a time for everything-even leisurely things such as reading, eating, and/or meditating. By doing this you will eliminate all of those “lost hours” that you could have used doing something more productive.
Focus: Concentrate on completing your tasks. If that means that you have to go into a quiet room, the library, computer lab, etc., than do it!!! You will be amazed at what you can do in an hour if you just focus and concentrate.
Set Goals: This is so important!!! You have to set goals in order to make an effective schedule. Your goals will give you the structure for your schedule. Once you clearly define what your goals are, you can then outline what it is that you need to do during the day, week, month, year, in order to achieve them.
As you can see all of these things work together! Motivation–>Set Goals–>Prioritize–>Schedule–>Focus! If you do these things every day, you will be amazed at the results! Time management is the key to ultimate success!
Let’s Win Together!
