Manage Time Better

Who can relate to these statements “manage time better,” “be more productive,” and “focus on what matters”? Mastering the art of time management requires saying no to something. If that doesn’t sit well with you emotionally, consider this, every time you say yes to something, you are simultaneously saying no to something else.

Here are some questions to ask yourself based on The Focus Funnel.

Eliminate – Can I live without it?
Automate – Can it be automated?
Delegate – Can it be done by someone else?
Procrastinate – Can it be done later?

Multiply your time by giving yourself the emotional permission to spend time on things today, that will give you more time tomorrow.

Never Give Up

People often give up after a few half-hearted efforts and conclude that a solution is not available.

Don’t forsake future rewards because of present pain.

It’s easy to throw your hands up in despair when faced with difficult situations, but pursuing anything in life that’s important to you takes faith, focus, and follow-through.

It is also tempting to give up on people or situations that haven’t changed for many years, but what seems unchangeable can occur when given new purpose and direction.
