How often do you hear the phrases “There’s not enough time in the day,” and “I never have time for myself.” At some point, everyone has wished they had more time in the day. Often you can look back at your day and wonder if you have accomplished much and thought, “Where on earth did my day go?”
Not all uses of time are equally valuable and the way you spend your time has the ability to make a big difference in your life. Those who choose to spend their time doing more commercial work make more financial gains. People who spend their time socialising and spending time with friends build better relationships. People who spend their time working on their own businesses enjoy more freedom.
Depending on what you want out of your life, it ultimately comes down to how you spend your time. Whether you want more prosperity, more relationships, or more freedom, it all comes down to what you really want and how much time you are going to dedicate to getting it.
An absolute must before you are able to manage your time effectively is to set clear goals on what you want in your life. To work out what you want, analyse and write down what is most important to you in order of priority. Then write down the different ways to achieve or get closer to these goals.
Once you’ve set your goals, you have to consolidate them. What are your long-term goals and short-term goals? Break all your goals down into milestones so that you have a target you’re aiming at each month, week, and day. Now implement them into your life, once you are in motion you are more likely to stay in motion; once you get started, you’ll probably keep going.
