The way you use your time is the way you live your life.
Posted on May 28, 2013, under Finding Time E-zine Articles.
Time management is a daily, and lifetime challenge. The better we get at it, the more fulfilled and successful we will be – in ALL aspects of our lives. That’s because: The way you use your time is the way you live your life.
So, my passion is sharing time management information with you! And I love doing it through this blog, my weekly Finding Time Tips, and my monthly, award-winning Finding Time E-zine … and the newest edition of the e-zine will be published this coming Thursday morning.
I’m putting the finishing touches on it right now, and am excited to have you read my article about “The Time-Wise Art of Saying ‘Yes!’ to Joy and Power” - tips expanding on that theme, and an exciting resource (a training call offered by my friend and colleague Heather Dominick).
Today that I’d like to share the E-zine with blog readers who may not be familiar with it. So click here to listen to “Transitions – Create a Pathway of Power” – the article from an edition we published this time last year. Below is an expanded time management tip (also from that e-zine), which takes the article and extends it. (And if you’d like more timely information like this, delivered right to your inbox, sign up for the Finding Time Success Kit in the sidebar today!)
Simplify big transitions into workable components.
Resist the temptation to lump everything new together. That’s a sure-fire recipe for becoming overwhelmed and feeling more out of control.
Envision the upcoming portion of your new journey, and write down the challenges you anticipate. Brainstorm options for each, and then take a short break. Once you’re refreshed, come back and familiarize yourself with your possibilities. Remain flexible, confident, and alert as you move into your day.
In times of transition, you may not be able to see very far down the road. Knowing this, take the opportunity to focus on incremental progress. Plan small action steps you can accomplish in a single setting, and revise them where needed as events unfold. To help coordinate tasks and re-orient yourself, jot down notes and refer to them as needed. If it’s useful, identify how long it takes you to complete new tasks. This helps you schedule realistically as you “find your feet.”
Remember, your transition is your journey. As you open to the lessons to be found at each turning of the road, you build skills and you enrich and deepen your life!
