If you were given $24 everyday for the rest of your life, and the only condition was that you had to spend every penny, you couldn’t save anything, how would you spend it?
Okay, now let’s take that same question, but instead of dollars it was hours, how would you spend your time?
Time, one thing that once it’s gone, you can never get that time back, a fact so many people know, yet they don’t pay it any attention.
Start your day off with a list of things you need to accomplish and I wouldn’t recommend writing this list in the morning, no, I would recommend that you write out this “time management” list the evening or night before. The reason I say this is because in the morning you may be rushing to get things started, distracted by all the things the morning holds, and that’s how you forget important stuff, but in the evening or at night before you go to bed things are still fresh in your mind, you are more relaxed and your brain doesn’t have to fight so many other thoughts to keep you focused.
Write out your list and believe it or not, when you wake up you will be more focused on what you need to do and you can clearly see the path that you need to take to accomplish the tasks ahead.
Another recommendation, is that you prioritize your list. Start with the most important things first, that way you don’t have to worry if they get done because you did those things first. Ask yourself, “what is the most valuable use of my time, right now?” and whatever that is work on that.
So, spend your 24 wisely and have an amazing day in the process! 🙂
