Your Time Boundaries are the Foundation of Your Time Success

Assertive Time Boundaries

Your time boundaries keep you on track.

Setting and maintaining time boundaries is a sure path to successful time management.

But why are time boundaries so important?

Well, trying to manage your time without having time boundaries is a little like trying to get yourself a drink of water without using a glass.

Just try holding a sieve under the faucet when you’re thirsty. The water will just pour down the drain.

And applying that analogy to your time, you’ll find yourself coming to the end of your day, wondering what happened to all that time you had.

Time flows, and we give it shape.

Our hours and minutes move along, flowing like a river, no matter what we do.  It’s a given.

The power that we have relative to our time is in how we structure our use of it. This includes the choices that we make about our time priorities and how we set and maintain time boundaries.

Time boundaries — where you put thought into action.

But clarifying our time priorities won’t be meaningful unless we use time boundaries to put them into effect. Time boundaries give shape to our activities in time.  This is because the time that we have to work with is finite, while our tasks, interests, and priorities generally are not.

There is always more than enough to do. So, in order to actually address our priorities, what we say no to becomes as important as what we say yes to.

Say no to say yes.

The time boundaries that we set create the space for addressing what we have identified as important. If we don’t create the space, other things will intrude, and we will never address our priorities.  We’ll be in the eternally frustrating position of trying to use a sieve to take a drink.

How are you faring at setting and adhering to time boundaries for yourself?

This helps too.

Time is pure potential. You decide how to use it; and once you do, it’s gone.

That’s why it’s so important to build on your best time choices.  If you feel like your time slips through your fingers, then you’ll want to claim your copy of my complimentary “Daily Choices Template:  Proven Strategies for Tracking Your Best Time Choices Today, Tomorrow & All Year!
