I might as well be honest with you, when it comes to time management training I have an important message for the participants in my workshops: “Before we start, it’s important to acknowledge that no matter what time management strategies you use, you will never have time for everything.” If I’m honest, that’s probably the last thing they want to hear.
Our broody hen was a much healthier hen when she couldn’t physically see the coop or the nest box.
If we want to experience significant behaviour change – to learn better habits, to stop unhelpful habits – we need to break that link between the unhelpful behaviour and the environment that supports it.
I came across this great quotation: “Plans are worthless, but planning is everything.”. American army general and statesman, Dwight D. Eisenhower seems to be re-working a peacetime version of something written in an earlier letter, “In preparing for battle I have always found that plans are useless but planning is indispensable.”
Do you ever wish you could do it all? I start most of my Time Management training workshops by reminding people that “Doing it all” is not the goal of my training. In my professional area It’s not really possible for someone to do everything, the best we can plan for is to do the most important things. So the skills I share include how to prioritise as much as how to manage time.
