Time Management Has Nothing to do with Time
I was looking through my previous posts for something on time management. Imagine that. In over 20 years of coaching, and with time management being one of the most common topics of conversation, still no writing about it.
No matter who I spoke to through those years, though, time management always came down to the same thing - choice. The choices you make every day boil down to how you choose to spend your time.
Think of it like a bank account where there's $86,400 deposited to your account every day and it's up to you how you spend it.
You do have an account but it's not dollars that are deposited. It's seconds. How do you spend those seconds? Once they're gone, they're gone. You can't save them, nor can you carry them forward to another day.
There are hundreds of methods and techniques for managing time. All you have to do is type "time management" into Google and you'll have over 222 million links to choose from to learn a new technique. That's 222,000,000. Need I say, I don't have the time to do that much clicking and reading.
So how do you simplify the process? Easier said than done. It comes down to you choosing how you want to spend that daily balance. Choose wisely.
