Time management and entrepreneurs aren’t usually used in the same sentence, unless it would be, “how to get entrepreneurs to manage their time better?” I’m sure that many people who work with entrepreneurs would love to have the answer to that question.
We should be asking, “How can we work better and get more done with new time management skills?” If we thought more about it, we might see the benefit. After all, the better we manage our time, the more likely we will make more money and enjoy our lives.
I read some place where an entrepreneur used a cooking timer and had it set to go off every twenty minutes. They must have ADHD as bad as I do! I’m not sure who it was, but I do know that they were doing well with that plan.
If you’re like me, you probably have paperwork all over the place. How do we ever find anything? It’s time for me to change that and get it organized.
At one point, I had a filing system that matched my task list. In fact, everything worked together and I was rather efficient. I was scheduling my time and the productivity went through the roof!
I had more free time, make that I had free time. I wasn’t worried about what I had to do next. It was great, and I’ve decided I’m doing what it takes to get back to that place.
I do remember that in order to be successful, I had to pace myself and not try to bite off too much. I looked forward to making progress each day, rather than dreading doing the hard work of making up my mind!
So here’s to getting organized and having great time management. I can’t wait to accomplish a clean desk, an empty inbox and maximizing efficiency!
If I can do it, you can too!
