Time Management is about prioritization.
Time management is key for everyone from the gamer to the marathoner to the executive to the pastor to the mom…you get the point.
And while the unexpected is just that, maximizing your time is about organizing the expected so that you can prioritize what’s important.
How is that possible? Here are the tips.
First, prioritizing is crucial or important for your day. Even if it is only 5 minutes of progress towards an overall goal, that 5 minutes of progress is just that…progress. Schedule time in your day where you can reduce distractions towards that.
Second, prioritize the secondary tasks. What are thing that you want to get done but don’t require solitude or absolute focus? Have a podcast or a Ted talk or a sermon you want to listen to? Squeeze it into your walk or run or drive to the grocery store. I knew one mom who listened to sermons in the shower just so she could get that time in each day.
Third, find time to rest. Again, even if it is 5 minutes (hopefully longer), get that time. Rest is diminished in our society, and false-pride is attached to the supposed lack of need. Just the other day for myself, I took a stressful phone call early in the evening. At the end of it, I sat on my front porch for 5 minutes. That’s it, 5 minutes, and I was ready to re-enter the house with my kids. The best bet, is plan on that rest time to transform your day or at least transform moments.
You can of course write these things down in your calendar, but ProSight Success has created the Streamline Planner which enables you to do these 3 things each day. It’s affordable and customizable.
