There is NO such thing as time management
Does this mean all the courses and diary systems are no good? Not at all. But first there is a mind-shift you need to take.
Time is! It just is! 24 hours a day. 1400+ minutes every day.
Time management implies we manage time, BUT time cant be managed! The typical mindset on Time Management is about applying techniques and tips things outside of you. But there is a step you must take first.
The key to creating an extra hour a day is changing your mindset to SELF-MANAGEMENT!
What is self-management? Mark Victor Hansen in the book One Minute Millionaire says it is accepting responsibility and not laying blame.
I believe self-management is about acknowledging we are responsible for our lives. It is your choices that have created your life. Not your boss or your parents or the government or anything else. Yes, those things have an impact, but how you choose to see the circumstances, how you choose to interpret and respond determine your life.
This is scary and exciting. It can be scary to think about being totally responsible for your life but this means that you can choose to take control and create what you want in the future.
To create and extra hour a day you need to start by adopting a mindset of self-management where you accept responsibility for your life totally. Then you can start to see new options and opportunities that will create more time.
Not time management but self management.
