We are all busier now than we have ever been in our lives and although little science backs up this claim, the evidence around us is obvious to deny.
Try to see it around you. We are all always in a rush. We talk too fast. We are quick to start something we never finish. We always have that nagging feeling that we were supposed to do or get something, but are not sure what it is. This is the world without time management. If you want to change the world you live in and allow yourself the time to stop and smell the roses, consider joining the Time Management Training Course from PD Training in Hong Kong.
As we find ourselves using the latest time-saving gadgets that come our way, from microwaves to computerised washing machines, it is surprising that we still don’t have enough time. This is because whatever time technology gives, technology also takes away. As the new time-saving gadgets arrive, so do the ones that take our time away. Consider the latest mobile phone with internet connection, movies, music, and connectivity with friends. We can waste the day away without noticing how much of the day we’ve wasted. When we waste so much time, we have little time left to do anything else, especially important things. This is when the chaos begins and stress ensues.
With the help of time management, we are able to ease the stress and chaos. It’s like adding hours to your day. It involves little things that help you make quality use of your time. Do you know that knowing where your keys are in the morning can save you the time of having to look for it? So will putting the things you need for the next day in one place, so you’ll have them all in one scoop.
Make a Time Diary
Try to plot out how you spend your time in a week. The key here is to be honest with yourself. If you like to watch television for most of the day, write it down. Whatever it is, write it down. The truth may hurt but at least it will give you a good insight of what’s taking up time. By knowing exactly how you use your time, you’ll be able to adjust it to allow you to maximise your time.
Learn to Say No
As much as you try to avoid conflict, you have to learn how to say no or to disagree with some people. It’s great to be helpful to others, but you have to put everything into perspective. You are the one who suffers when you can’t say no. It will also affect your relationship with your family and friends because your time will be taken away.
When someone asks you to do something you don’t really have time to do, just politely but firmly say no. Never allow yourself to feel guilty. Declining to do other things actually shows that you are focused on your goal.
