Developing your time management skills not only makes you more efficient, giving you more time for the things you want to do, but it also brings new opportunities for success.
Each day, make sure you include some time to complete tasks that move you closer to your goals.
On your daily schedule, leave some wiggle room. This gives you the time to break away from the normal daily tasks and handle distractions without putting you behind schedule. You will find that you’re well prepared for distractions and can easily get back on track.
Your wiggle room also gives you the time to pursue new opportunities when you see them. You will be open to recognising and taking action on new opportunities as they come up, rather than be a slave to the tasks on your list.
Good time management also lets you include time for yourself, which brings all sorts of possibilities. You can develop new interests, skills, and hobbies, and each one creates its own brave new world of fresh opportunities!
Managing your time well gives you the time to keep yourself healthy, both mentally and physically. It allows for variety and excitement and it keeps you alert to new possibilities.
Today, plan to arrange your schedule according to your priorities and include plenty of wiggle room so that you can get things done, while still having time to pursue new interests.
