You Would be Surprised How Time Management Skills Can Improve Your Life

Most people are extremely bad at time management skills but deceptively think that they are in total control of their time. The deception is that they do not have an accounting system that tracks their time that measures their goals whether big or small. It’s probably safe to assume that most people only accomplish forty percent of what they set out to go for a given period of time.  If you want to validate this point just write down all the things you want to accomplish in one week at on Sunday, put the list out of sight then look back at list at end of week and you will see what you have truly accomplished and it will surprise you. They say that that time is money and I say money is time if you look at that way your time will be really precious. Time is a valuable commodity which is defined in Webster’s as – something of use, advantage, or value and is  a concept that very few people can apparently grasp.

Learning to say no to people or situations will certainly add a good healthy 25% back to your time management. It will take a while for you to be able to train my your mind to be able to prioritize your time management skills and it is suggested that you start with a good chart system and disciple to monitor your progress and will  be surprised how time management will improve your life!
