Time Management


Today I was just thinking about TIME and how valuable it is. There is no turning back time. Time keeps going and going and going. Pretty soon our time will be up on this earth. Will you have accomplished what you want by then?  To be a successful person you must have good time management. There are several things to do in one day. But you must be managing your work and play.

One of the biggest ways that people waste time without realizing it, is by not having a basic agenda for their day, a routine. Many people get up in the morning and just start doing things without being organized about it. Someone who gets up and goes jogging every day for the past 5 years isn’t going to spend much time wondering if he/she should go today.

Part of the trick to doing this is to start small with things that you will actually follow through with. I see people decide they are going to get up at 5 am every morning and it lasts exactly 0 days. They would be better off getting up consistently at 7 and sticking with that commitment and then see about moving it back. Instead of committing to yourself to workout for 2 hours a day, maybe you should start with doing 50 sit ups and 25 push ups and sticking with it.


1. Grab a pen and paper. Write down 2 things you do everyday that waste your time. (Ex: TV, Video Games, Too Much Time On The Computer, etc).

2. Now mark an x through those time-wasters. Replace those time-wasters with 2-3 things that would be useful and help you accomplish your goals.

3. Now Make A Daily Schedule/Routine.

Look at your weeks work schedule and schedule these 2-3 things around it. (maybe every sunday night)

4. You should consider these must-do activities as part of your work schedule and do them daily. Be consistent and determined to finish these tasks. You may want to break your schedule up and do a certain amount in the morning before work and then the other half at night, before bed. Be committed to finish your tasks before you sleep : )

5. Now post your schedule up on the wall, maybe in your cell phone calendar, and/or on your computer.
