Extra Points – Time

Time.Captain Jack

There seems to be a recurring theme in recent conversations with my coaching and mentoring clients. It goes something like this, “Boy, I’m so slammed with time now, I don’t know how to add something else.” That “something else” is normally an activity or a behavior that works towards meeting an objective.

Time is not a resource issue, it’s a priority issue. We all have the same amount of time. Regardless of position, influence, or money; we all play on the same field of 24 hours. Time can’t be managed, but priorities are always being made.

Here is one thing to consider with time that might help you. What distractions are devouring your time? Social media? Internet news? Candy Crush? It might even be things that aren’t as obvious like email “dings” announcing their arrival; co-workers interrupting you; and the insidious doing work that should be delegated to someone else but you’re unwilling to give it up. In the end, you have to make time decisions based on priority. You have control over distractions, whether self-inflicted by you or others. How you deal with priorities will ultimately determine how effective, productive, and happy you are.

This week’s quote –

Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
Fritter and waste the hours in an off-hand way
Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town
Waiting for someone or something to show you the way ~ Pink Floyd, “Time”
