Welcome to my series on developing time management tools.
I’ve been tossing around this idea for the past few weeks to talk about time management tools. Not just talk about it, but also share what I’ve learned from trial and error, from others, and from all the books I’ve read. I’ve mentioned here how I love to read books that make life easier. Developing time management tools will make your life so much easier and you will be so much more productive.
Now for a little confession, you see time management is a touchy subject for me. I haven’t always been good at it. I can still hear my Dad’s voice in my head saying “You are burning the candles at both end. You are taking on too much.” Yet, I would never take his advice. In the end, I would wind up sick and exhausted. In high school I would plan in one day what should have probably been done in two. Just because I hate missing out and I want to get every memory that I could.
As I’ve gotten older I still hate missing out, but have learned how to be better at time management. That way I can take on a lot, still have fun, and get things done without getting myself sick. It’s a pretty good feeling to know that you have a lot on your plate and have it all under control. I guess I thrive in those situations or get something weird out of them. I am not sure which, but my brain is hard-wired to be busy.
Sitting still was never fun for me. Ever.
In this series I am hoping to share some time management tools that can help you do more and be more successful. I plan on sharing tips so you can get organized, do more, and boost your efficiency. Can’t wait to get this party started!
