We all know what time management is. We hear about it. see all these techniques that are supposed to make us better at it. but at its core, what is time management? Are you working to make your schedule fit too many things at once? Are you happy trying to balance out things that aren't really meaningful? Are you really stretching yourself too thin to begin with? When I talk about time management with my clients, a lot of times they come right out and say how busy they are, and how hectic it will be for us to fit meeting times into the schedule. What I've come to learn is that I need to reassess everything I was trying to spend time on and determine if it was worth it, or if I was just concerned about the face value of the situation. When I started breaking down the things I really wanted to do, versus those that did not hold much weight, or could be better communicated, I started managing my time better. Also, even though it sounds tedious, writing things down helps. Even if it's short hand, you'll save yourself some headaches by jotting down simple reminders or notes that are important. Once you develop that system, you'll stop focusing on how busy you are, and start enjoying the things your actually doing, realizing that there's more than enough time in a day.
