Time management and productivity are two of the most sought-after skills in today’s fast paced world. And the amount of information available on the topic is endless.
When I started asking my readers what they knew about time management, most of them looked at me with question marks in their eyes.
Okay, so I couldn’t actually see the question marks. But I had a lot of people telling me that they had absolutely no idea where to start.
So I pulled the emergency brake on myself. Why am I writing all this material on tips for increasing your productivity if I’m just going to plop it down on a shaky foundation?
Enter Time Management 101. The purpose of this series is to teach you some of the basic ideas behind what time management actually is. You wouldn’t give your kid math homework without teaching them how to count first, right? Then you shouldn’t give yourself time management expectations if you don’t know the science behind it.
Trying to learn how to manage your time and be more productive without first understanding some of the foundational elements is a recipe for disaster.
In this series, I am going to walk you through some of the time management basics.
We will start by looking at the mental shifts you may need to make before you even start.
We will consider what your values and motivators are, and how to apply them to your goals.
And we will evaluate how you like to work. And when you like to work. And the different internal drivers that make you uniquely you.
Once we are clear on all of this, I will introduce you to a few different time management techniques that have been proven to work for people with similar habits.
Life isn’t a one-size-fits-all scenario, and neither is time management. So let me help you discover a way that will work for you.
