Out of these three questions I bet that you answered yes to at least one of these and you just feel like, until you get a grip on your time, that life will just slip you by. The pressures and demands of how to use your time could be getting you down in either your home life or your professional life. And the time that you have with your family is just not what you feel that they deserve.
However, don’t worry just yet. Time worries and frustrations are fixable, and it is not as difficult as you think to make some little changes that give you big returns for that effort. It only takes a few small adjustments in the way you use your time to change your life forever and you will be so happy that you did. Even though change does take some time to implement and then stick to your efforts for doing those changes far outweigh what you are experiencing now.
Each newsletter or email you receive from me will include a Tip Top Tip and an article to help you see where you can curb the frustration and struggle that you have with managing your time. Share them with your friends because they need the tips and help also.
Before I leave you today we will start with Part ONE of exploring What Is Time Management. This article is all about learning to managing yourself.
**We all start out with the same 24 hours. Some of us start earlier in the day and some on the other side of the world start when we are ready to go to bed. But all-in-all we work with the same 24 hours. Let me start out first off saying that you cannot manage time but only yourself.
The very first and most effective way to manage your time is to identify the most important things in your life that matters the most to you. Mostly you would be spending your precious time in this area above any other. You will get the most satisfaction out of your life by doing this. All other time investments are not as important as this is.
By spending most of your time effectively and doing what matters most to you is where you will see the most dramatic improvements, but also be prepared that there needs to be some basic changes in your life. To begin in lots of area’s all at one time will defeat your work and your progress in not only giving you more time to work with but not allow you to make the necessary changes that will stick around for a while. Begin slowly at first and when you succeed in that area move onto the next while continuing your success from the first change. Too much too soon can lead you into more frustration and you will want to give up.
My Mom used to say “yard by yard it could be hard, but inch by inch it is a cinch.”
Simple sayings like this pop into my head from time to time and I am sure that after a few months you are going to be saying that Deborah White said this or that and then making these sayings your own after a while. So, until next TIME.
