The way you use your time is the way you live your life.
Posted on June 5, 2012, under Time After Time.
Finding time to start something new is a process that is always deepened and enhanced when it is built upon what has come before. So, as we step into the month of June, the experiences of May can come with us to inform and enlarge the journey. So, what posts were the readers of The Time Finder most drawn to in May?
Interestingly, it was a post from mid-April that topped the list. Find Time for the 5-Minute Solution and Nip Procrastination in the Bud! If procrastination is an issue for you, you’ll want to click the link and explore this practical and powerful plan:
Finding time to overcome procrastination is a challenge that you can actually address in just 5-minutes – with 100% success – all the time! I know that sounds like an extremely bold claim, but in my experience, it really is true.
Find Time for Some Digital Media Resources from Mashable on Cyber Monday was next on the list of May’s top posts. It’s a challenge to keep up with changes on the digital landscape …
That’s why I like to check sources like Mashable, Lifehacker, CNET, Wired, and PCMag.com occasionally – and most especially when they offer Top 10 Lists and other aggregations of information. There are people for whom monitoring the digital world is a full-time job (as well as a passion).
Staying on track and getting tasks and projects done on time involves some key time management skills. This post (Find Time Using Soft Deadlines) offers you one that you may not have considered.
Soft deadlines are due dates that you set for yourself, ahead of whatever your final deadlines may be. You can think of them as brightly colored buoys bobbing over rocks and shoals, marking the entrance to your harbor.
And is procrastination a challenge for you? Here’s an idea (Find Time to Play Your Way Out of Paralyzing Procrastination) that might surprise you – and might just do the trick!
Do you find looming deadlines stressful to the point of stopping you in your tracks? It can be a nightmarish feeling when the clock is ticking, your panic is mounting, and you feel like you’re losing ground with each passing moment. Sound familiar? The harder you try, the more your mind goes blank. Ideas and inspiration dry up.
Last but not least, Time Finder readers were drawn to Find Time by Factoring Dependencies Into Collaboration: Increase Your Priority Power™. Setting priorities and using them powerfully is a matter of planning – and this post offers some excellent tips.
Basically, when an enterprise you’re engaged in calls for collaboration, the “dependency” is someone outside of your immediate work group who plays an essential role in your achieving your goals. When you prioritize tasks, dependencies must be factored in and accounted for.
