Time Management Ain't About the Clock

I get people all the time whining because they don't have time to get things done. I hate to say it but the comment is silly, and here's the first reason why.

Time management is not about a clock on the wall or a watch on your arm. It's about a triangle. The first side IS time, and you have just as much as everyone else; 1o,080 minutes a week. The biggest problem related to time is procrastination and the best way to deal with procrastination is finding rewards that pull you through the issue you are putting off. The rewards have to be big enough and personal enough to really matter to you. I don't want to put too fine a point on this but if 9/11 didn't prove anything else it proved that humans will do anything, good or bad, if they think there is a reward that matters to them on the other side of the accomplishment.

In my next blog I'll share how the decisions you make about people (especially the talkative/gotta steal your time/needy sluggoes) steal your time.
