14 Dec “8 Great Tips to manage Life by Time Managment”
You guys have been reading mystuff for a year around, you know my brain now. Once again I brought out foryou from my creative room. People generally say I don’t have time. Greatleaders and successful people say, “those who don’t have time, time managesthem as they can’t manage time.” I havebeen in a profession; I need to attend all social meeting without delaying mysessions. Last eight years of my profession has taught me many lessons abouttime. Here are some I share with you:
Do you really think timemanagement is write time table? Generally people take time management class and make paper based day orelectronic planner to organize your day. In the end you always fail and yourtime management classes go in vain.
Before you learn how to managetime, you’d better learn what time is. Book define time as “the point or periodat which things occur.” I can say time when stuff happens.
There are two types of time:clock time and real time. In clock time, there are 60 seconds in a minute, 60minutes in an hour, 24 hours in a day and 365 days in a year. All time passesequally. When someone turns 50, they are exactly 50 years old, no more or noless.
In real time, all time is relative. Timeflies or drags depending on what you’re doing. Two hours at the department of motor vehicles can feel like 12 years. And yet our 12-year-old children seem tohave grown up in only two hours.
“Don’t letyour personal life become old memories”
Practice the following techniques to become the master of yourown time:
Knowwhere your precious time goes:
Carry a schedule and record all your thoughts,conversations and activities for a week. This will help you understand how muchyou can get done during the course of a day and where your precious moments aregoing. You’ll see how much time is actually spent producing results and howmuch time is wasted on unproductive thoughts, conversations and actions.
Take the first 30 minutes of every day to planyour day. Don’t start your day until you complete your time plan. The mostimportant time of your day is the time you schedule to schedule time.
Priority should be assigned time
Any activity or conversation that’s importantto your success should have a time assigned to it. To-do lists get longer andlonger to the point where they’re unworkable. Appointment books work. Scheduleappointments with yourself and create time blocks for high-priority thoughts,conversations, and actions. Schedule when they will begin and end. Have thediscipline to keep these appointments.
Get in the habit of setting time limits fortasks.
Forinstance, reading and answering email can consume your whole day if you let it.Instead, set a limit of one hour a day for this task and stick to it.
Utilizetime from your waste time:
Plan to spend at least 50 percent of your timeengaged in the thoughts, activities and conversations that produce most of yourresults.
Don’t disturb me please:
Put up a “Do notdisturb” sign when you absolutely have to get work done.
Idon’t want to attend calls and e-mails
Practice not answering the phone just becauseit’s ringing and e-mails just because they show up. Disconnect instantmessaging. Don’t instantly give people your attention unless it’s absolutelycrucial in your business to offer an immediate human response. Instead,schedule a time to answer email and return phone calls.
Schedule time for interruptions. Plan time tobe pulled away from what you’re doing. Take, for instance, the concept ofhaving “office hours.” Isn’t “office hours” another way ofsaying “planned interruptions?”
