Do YOU manage your time or does your TIME manage you?
This is a question we need to ponder because even though we think we manage our times it could be the other way around.
If you are constantly finding yourself short of time in meeting your objectives? You need better Time Management
If you are exhausted and overworked yet feel unaccomplished? You need better Time Management
If you are experiencing burnouts and can't seem to keep up? You need better Time Management
Getting more freedom in life necessarily means getting more effective with your time, because as you manage your time more effectively you have more of it to go around.
Think about it, Richard Branson, Tony Robbins, and all the greats have TONS of work they need to complete in their day, yet like you and I they also have only 24 hours in their day. How do they get it ALL done? Time Management.
But managing time is not just about getting more productive with your time and getting through checklists, it starts with a vision of how and more importantly WHERE you want to spend your time. Every time you plan your day ask 3 simple yet powerful questions:
1. What is the big picture vision of my life?
2. What do I need to do to move in that direction?
3. Is the work I have assigned myself aligned with my vision?
If the answer to any of these questions is a No then revisit your priorities and take this as an opportunity to ask some tough questions to yourself.
Are you heading in the direction you want in life? Are you living a truly fulfilled life that YOU want to? Have you been struggling with managing time because you are spending time doing tasks you do not want to?
