Five Tips for Using Your Time Wisely
Number 1: Run the day or it will run you. Part of the key to time management is just staying in charge. If you don’t stay on top of things, the day will run you before long. You have to stop every once in a while and say, “Wait! Who’s in charge here?” Here is a good phrase to remember: “Some will master and some will serve.” You must have your written set of goals with you at all times. Prioritize your goals and decide which are important.
Number 2: Don’t mistake movement for achievement. You’ve got to be busy being productive. Evaluate the hours in your days, and see if there’s a lot of wasted time that you could manage better.
Number 3: Concentrate on where you are. You’ve got to zero in on the job at hand. Wherever you are, be there. Don’t be somewhere else. Give whatever you’re doing the gift of attention. Give people the gift of attention.
Number 4: Learn to say no. Don’t say yes too quickly. It’s better to say, “I don’t know.” It’s nicer to say that than to back out later. Be eager to please yourself and your family. Don’t be eager to please everybody else. Appreciate your own limits. Take time to enjoy the fruits of your labor.
Number 5: Appreciate the little details. Your success should be a pleasure. Appreciating what you’ve acquired and what you’ve done and who you’ve become is important. It’s an important component in fueling your future achievements. Success is the constant process of working toward your goals, little achievement by little achievement. Little achievements produce big results. Anything is possible in those 24 hours we’re given each day.
