Time management quotes
While the benefits of good time management seem obvious to some people, many people still ask this question. The question they are often really asking is will the effort to improve my time management be worth it.
The short is an emphatic YES!
The benefits we have seen from improving the way you approach spending your time can be massive and include getting promotions, earning $10,000s more, keeping a job that looks lost, turning poor health into good health, being able to enjoy family time, taking a holiday, playing golf, reading and changing a stressed out existence into a happy life.
Any of these things can happen for you too when you realise that TIME IS YOUR MOST PRECIOUS resource. Time must be spent more wisely than anything else!
Check out the four core Time Management skills
This is a great question and much of the time management information leads people to believe that it is about a technique or a system. And you do need to use a technique or a system, BUT that comes second (or even third). There is a major step to take first. It is actually a paradigm shift that means a change of mindset.
You see, heres the amazing thing. There is No such thing as Time Management. Everyone gets the same amount of time each day and nothing we do changes time. So what is time management then? It is really SELF-MANAGEMENT. What we are really talking about is how you manage what you do (and dont do) in any given block of time.
Lets go over that again. What is time management? In our opinion time management is really Self-Management which means managing yourself so you spend your time doing what is most importnat and rewarding for you.
There is one MAJOR ingredient that determines how well you do this. It what we call CLARITY. (our Clarity and goal setting for time management page will be ready soon!)
If there is one thing we want to convey to all our visitors it is that Time Management if first and foremost about changing your mindset to SELF-MANAGEMENT and NOT about tools, techniques and systems.
Here is how we define time management:
Time Management is the ability to management yourself, specifically what you do and dont do, in any given block of time and to do this consistently over many blocks of time. This includes expecting to do more than you really can in these blocks of time.
