Taking Charge of Your Time
I thought I should share one of my latest discoveries with you today. I should warn you that it is nothing you have not heard before but this is coming from a very different perspective.
If you are like me, it is very hard to find enough time to do all you have to in a day. Infact, as soon as you start doing it, you immediately run out of time.
As an early riser and busy person, I wake up and have to complete my morning routines before leaving the house. In most cases I would need to use services especially transport that will leave at a certain time, so any delays are expensive and infact disastrous.
Last week, I decided that this had to change and remembered one of my favourite quotes, “Measurement is the first step that leads to control and eventually to improvement. If you can’t measure something, you can’t understand it. If you can’t understand it, you can’t control it. If you can’t control it, you can’t improve it.” by H. James Harrington.
I decided to time all my activities as I go through them and to my greatest surprise, I completed all my routines 5 minutes earlier. No anxiety and that set up my day perfectly.
I’m sure you can guess where I am going here; measure your daily activities to increase your efficiency – it will lead to superb time management and efficiency. You will produce more in a relaxed way.
Another great thing that happens when you start measuring your time is that you become more conscious of what you spend your time on and who you spend it with.
If you respect time, it will be on your side and most importantly people around you will also respect you!
Unfortunately, time is our most expensive possession, any time lost cannot be regained.
Every single day you are alife should count as there are not discounts with time.
Ensure you have a wrist watch, wall clock or some sort of time keeper everywhere you are.
Be sure that whatever you spend your time on produces value.
Right now, it’s over to you.. Try it and let me know how you got on.
