Find Time to Make Time Choices that Enhance Your Time Success

Finding time to make sure that your time choices are working for your time success (and not against it) is a foundational time management skill.

Yesterday we started exploring the 3 P’s of time choices. We looked at how being Proactive is a key to time success.  Today I’d like to take a look at the other 2 P’s. They’re about assuring that your time choices are Productive and Positive.

Time success and your choices…

Productive time choices contribute to your time success by moving you toward your goals.  That seems pretty self-evident.  However, what’s important here is that you base your choices on solid self knowledge.

Consider a situation where you are pushing to complete a project. If you’re overtired or hungry, your most productive time choice might be to give yourself a break rather than to keep going at it.  You are the best judge here. And what’s key is to take responsibility to know yourself and know what works best for you.  There’s no right or wrong when it comes to time success. It’s what works that counts!

Positive choices, the third key:

Making positive time choices is the third key to your time success.  This skill has to do with the content of your time choices, your perspective on them, and most importantly, with what part of you is making these choices.

If you hear a self-critical  tone embedded in your choices, or perhaps a voice that sounds victimized and beleaguered, then you can be sure that your choices aren’t positive and you aren’t fully behind them.  And what this means in practice is that you are out of alignment.  You are not optimizing your energy and effort.  And you can pretty much guarantee that somewhere along the line, things will fall apart.

Time success is within your reach.

That’s what I hope you will take away from these posts.  When you recognize the importance of each and every time choice, and keep in mind the 3 P’s, you can attain your goals, whether they be big or small.  In the meantime, here’s something else to consider as you continue your journey to time success …
