Time Management

The solution to great achievement! Use time management and prioritising tasks to turn chaos into order. Would you want to do business with someone who:

  • Misses deadlines
  • Doesn't check details
  • Is too busy to answer emails
  • Doesn't return calls
  • Jumps from project to project, not completing in a timely manner
  • Is disorganised
  • Frequently postpones meetings
Are you that someone? Even some of the time. We are all given 1440 minutes every day. Some people seem to use theirs more productively than others. Why?

"Until you value yourself, you will not value your time. Until you value your time; you will not do anything with it." M. Scott Peck

Time Management Activities

Action or Activity - there is a vast difference. Action moves you towards your goals; it gets the job done. This takes some effort on your part, but you will reap the rewards.

Activity, just filling time but getting nowhere fast! We kid ourselves that answering heaps of emails and making lists is productive. These have to be done of course, but REAL planning and focussed action lead to order and achievement.

How do you know if you are just busy with activities?
  • You feel stressed at the number of jobs banked up
  • You never seem to have time for thinking. (This should be your number one top priority action)
  • You take lunch at your desk whilst working
  • You are always rushing at the last minute to complete tasks
  • You never seem to have time for exercise
  • You often work late and start early to try to catch up
  • Your personal life and family life take a back seat
  • You say yes to additional work, when you are already overcommitted
  • You have lots of things you would love to do, but never have the time
  • You frequently do tasks which anyone else could do, rather than using your special skills
  • You often feel out of control with work and life

Personal Time Management Tools

We all want to accomplish more and reach our goals, but sometimes time management can be very elusive. Time and again we promise ourselves we'll be organized; at times we need help. You will find heaps of tools on the internet and pay good money for planners and elaborate organizers. One of the best free tools for time management is the Simpleology Course devised by internet guru Mark Joyner.

For a marked increase in output and a feeling of control over your life wouldn't you be prepared to spend about 15 minutes at the beginning of each day with planning that will actually free up time throughout the rest of the day?

The Benefits of Time Management

  • Clearly defined tasks with deadlines
  • Increased focus on more important tasks
  • Less time spent between projects
  • Greater sense of accomplishment
  • Overall sense of success at the end of the day
Simpleology is fun, helps you to become efficient, and includes free desktop time management software to help you stay focused. You can even ask the forum for advise and help
