ave you ever wondered where has the time gone? What did I get accomplished today? It seemed I was busy all day but I got nothing done or maybe you did, but it was nothing of importance. And importance is different to each of us – what are your goals, what fires you up, what makes you do what you do everyday? You are the only one that can answer those questions.
When running a business, your time is one of the most precious things you have, because you can never get it back. In my own personal experience, I have found your business can and will consume everything that you are and every moment of your life – if you let it and if you don’t have strong boundaries and priorities. I think that this is something most of us struggle with and with a few practical changes in our life, we can began to see real change.
Time Management is really a misnomer – the challenge is not to manage time, but to manage ourselves. The key to not to prioritize what’s on your schedule, but to schedule your priorities. – Steven Covey
Write your To Do List the Day Before. Try to keep it to 10 things. I have found using the Bullet Journal method has been a game changer in my business.
Create a Schedule. Not based on what you have to do in regards to your business or the work of it, but a schedule that revolves around your priorities. (your family, working out, spending time with God, etc.) Then fill in your work around that.
Create Time Blocks. Basically, schedule out your entire day including sleep time. This will help you to focus on each task at hand – whether it’s your work or your family.
