Here are four great truths about time-management.

Are you a productive person or someone who is just busy? There is a difference between getting “something” done and getting one step closer to getting the “right thing” done. Is your to-do list full of simply chores or does it include tasks that lead you to reaching your goals

Beginning with the basics, these four fundamental truths will set you up for the life you want to live.

  1. This may surprise some of you, but time cannot be managed! You can only manage yourself in respect to time. Time can not be slowed down nor speed up – the sole change you can make is to your own actions.
  2. If you think you have less and less time to “stop and get organized”, the more you need to stop and get organized! The time you invest in planning and preparation will afford you TWICE as much time to get things done.
  3. Work expands to fit the time designated for it. So, the more time you allocate for a task, the longer it will take you to complete it.
  4. Here is something we have all said before, “I don’t have time to do that.” However, that is a misguided statement. Everyone has the same amount of hours in a day and days in a week. How you use your time is strictly your choice. Take pride in your decision-making power and know that you can proactively decide what to do each day. Instead of saying the above statement, you can say, “I don’t choose to use my time in that way.” This puts a positive spin on the statement as oppose to the first having a negative undertone.
