We are all gifted with the same number of hours in a day. The difference between those of us that succeed and those that don’t, is how we choose to use that time. Successful people invest their time, others simply spend it!
This brings us back to the question, what is success? It means something different to everyone, to us, it means accomplishment in all streams of life, that is relationships, finance, physical and mental health and spiritual peace. This means in order to achieve in all areas it is important to invest time in all areas. You may have seen the following time management template that I find useful:
I use an Excel spreadsheet daily to ensure I have something in the Important not Urgent space for each of the streams mentioned above. I ensure the tasks that go into this space are aligned with my ultimate goals, this way I can go to bed each night knowing that I am one step closer to reaching my goals. As I try to keep up with the items in this space, I seldom have stuff finding its way into the urgent spaces.
As always, I would love to hear your ideas and feedback!
