If you spend a crazy amount of time bathing or doing laundry, you are not alone. Thank God for dry cleaners, at least they help solve the problem of laundry when you don’t have the time for it. But there isn’t yet a business or technology that can help with that of bathing. If you know of any, please do let me know.
Last week, I was with a young lady who in her own words said time management was her biggest challenge, a challenge she decided to overcome and gain mastery of. She gave me a few tips in regards to time management which I’d like to share.
1. ALWAYS BE CONSCIOUS OF TIME
“Time dey go” is something you should always have in mind. Time is life. So be conscious of time just as you’re conscious of you being alive. Taking control of your time is taking control of your life, it begins with time consciousness and its result is better productivity.
2. COUNT TIME IN SECONDS
In her own words, she said “every second counts”. In other words, begin to look at completing tasks in matter of seconds, not just minutes or hours. Her advice was to get a digital wristwatch that displays in seconds, minutes and hours. Anytime you check the time, you need to see the seconds counting down on you. Now that’s smart.
3. TAKE STOCK OF YOUR TIME
Always take stock of your time. How long does it take you to bath, to walk or drive to the office, to complete a task, how long, how long, and how long? Learn it, take stock and find ways to speed up time – just like I’m trying to speedup bathroom time.
Her tips are helpful and I hope it helps you to better manage your time. I am by no means an expert on the subject of TIME MANAGEMENT; I am rather a student, learning so I can 10x my productivity. Time is life. Wasting time is wasting life, and making most of every second is making most of our lives.
This is a conversation. And now it’s your turn to talk to me, and my turn to listen.
We all have so much to do with so little time to do it. And we’ve all got just 24 hours in day. So,
How do you buy time?
How do you get so much done in a day, week or month?
