Time Management Mastery

One of the great things about life is that we can realistically be or do anything we choose to. This includes being a good time manager! We must believe that we can be a good time manager – that we have the potential. Unfortunately, many people say, “Well, I am just a poor time manager,” as if it was ingrained in their DNA. The truth is that anyone can be a great time manager, if they choose to go from potential to performance.

So, how do we do this? Here is a simple 7 part process:
  1. Believe that you can become a good time manager
  2. Inventory where your time is currently being spent
  3. Determine what your life values are – what do you view as important, what do you want to accomplish?
  4. Set time priorities that will move you toward living out your values
  5. Develop a system of scheduling that works best for you, not a time management conglomerate
  6. Learn to say “no” to things that are not part of your priorities moving you toward your values – exercise your power to choose
  7. Do what is in your new schedule

These simple steps, if you apply them, will take you from having the potential to be a good time manager to true time management mastery and performance!
