Finding Time by Being Prepared for Change

Change is in the air. This past weekend we had our first significant frost.  It had been so temperate, to that point, that many plants and flowers I associate with late summer were still gracing the gardens.  Now the cosmos are gone, and the frost is on the pumpkin.


Time management, in many peoples’ views, is all about organization and planning and controlling your time.  These are not bad goals, by any means.  However, as I note in my new article, Time Management Techniques:  5 Ways to Profit by Mastering Change Management, “Life is always bigger than your plans.”

First FrostWhether changes are predictable, like the frost this weekend, or unpredictable, like a sudden illness or an accident, they can throw your plans out of sync.

And of course, changes aren’t just negative!  Something like an unexpected windfall or a new friend still presents something new in our lives, and asks us to adjust.

This week on The Time Finder I’ll be exploring change and how we can make the most of it!

For now, I’ll leave you with this thought, from Charles Darwin:

It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change.
