Forget about time management in 2018

enceinte comment rencontrer un homme Are you making progress towards your goals or have you already fallen behind? When it comes to setting and achieving goals, the number one obstacle (nice way of saying EXCUSE) people say they face is TIME

annonces dz rencontre “There’s just not enough time in the day.” Have you ever said that? Of course you have. Me, too. That’s why there’s a whole industry called “time management.”

wikipedia reference Here’s some reality for you though…

YOU CAN’T MANAGE TIME. There’s 60 minutes to an hour, 24 hours to a day, 168 hours in a week, etc.

We’re not going to change that. We all get the same amount of time.

What we can manage is ACTIVITIES…

And, at the same time, we have to accept that we have CHOICES.

Let me give you an example I’ve heard countless times over the last 20+ years in my career – “if I had a nickel…” ;-b

When it comes to exercise, the go-to reason people say they can’t do it regularly is… you guessed it … TIME.

Yet, American adults aged 35-49 watch more than 33 hours of TV per week, according to data from Nielsen. The average American watches more than five hours of television (live and/or DVR) every day!

Now, before you say, “that’s not me” let me explain why I brought this up…

Personally, I find the data to be mind boggling. I know I certainly don’t watch 33 hours of TV per week, and I’m guessing, if you’re reading this, you don’t either.

BUT, have you ever tracked how much time you do watch? I bet it will shock you and if lack of time has ever been an obstacle for you, well…

Once again, it’s all about choice. I’m not saying TV is all bad. Hell, I really enjoy certain TV shows and I love watching movies – that’s why I’m putting a home theater in my new house!

However, in 2018, I’m committing to not letting time be an excuse if I’m able to find it to watch my shows…

TV isn’t the only “time suck” in our schedules. There are plenty of other things that eat up time that don’t always line up with our goals. There are also plenty of “time vampires” – people who will just suck up all your time if you let them!

The ultimate point is this – If you really want to know what you value in life, take a look at your calendar…

Time is our most precious resource. Once a minute is gone, we can NEVER get it back.

Take a look at your 2018 goals.

Then take a look at your daily/weekly/monthly/annual calendar.

Do they match up?
