Today, an exorbitant amount of books pertaining to time management exist. For years, people have been trying to determine a way to add more to their day and find ways to cram everything in it. You have a choice about where you spend your time.
Making time for the priorities in your life is of critical importance. Release the rest. In society today, time is the commodity in which you fully invest yourself and the one essential commodity you exchange for everything in your life. Time has the ability to be a virtue or a hindrance; depending on the way you use it. You and you alone determine how you will spend your time throughout your life.
The best practice of life is to never make excuses. Everyone has 24 hours in a day, 7 days in a week, for a total of 168 hours. Of course, minus 56 hours you should be sleeping (7 days X 8 hours) leaves you with 112 hours.
In these 7 days, you have 112 hours per week to achieve all the results you desire. Planning is essential to successfully optimize these hours.
In fact, you and I have the same amount of time as Albert Einstein, Picasso, and Walt Disney had during their periods of peak performance. What are you doing with your 168 hours each week? You must stop saying, “I wish I had more time.” Instead, start making time for what is important, those you love, and those who depend on you.
When you spend time foolishly or fail to plan quality time doing something constructive, you are squandering your time. You touch an incredible number of people whether you realize it or not. You are unable to reclaim or recreate time. Once a second, minute or hour is over, it is gone forever. Focus on the time you have today and maximize your resources; adapt as your season of life changes. is is not about time management, but rather managing time to accomplish your goals.
Before you can change how you spend your time, you need to know where your time goes. The best way to be true to yourself about how much time you spend on your priorities is to complete a time log once or twice a year. A week of your past is the key to the future.
