Time Advantage

Time Advantage

       We all have the constraints of time. There never seems to be enough time to get everything done that we want to do. How do we live life to the fullest and do everything we need, and want, to do? It seems we always run short on time.

Time Advantage

Time is a great equalizer. No matter what other resources we or others have, we all have the same amount of time. We all have 24 hours in a day, and seven days in a week. It is the same for all of us, yet some people seem to have more time than others.

Time must be optimized in order for us to be our best and live life to the fullest. We all know people who work hard, or train hard, with limited results or successes. Why? Perhaps they are spending time but it is not optimized or used most effectively.

To maximize or time we use our choose to use our time wisely, and we must use our time with optimal efficiency. Perhaps these seem like two sides of the same coin, so let’s discuss these concepts further.

Wise choices for our time is the allocation of how we use our time. Many people simply get in a habit of spending large blocks of time, unintentionally, unproductively. This dilemma was the origin of The Four Anchors which is a method for filtering how we use our time. We must choose to use our time wisely if we want to optimize our successes, as well as our fulfillment and satisfaction with life. Deliberate use of time is reflected by the choices we make on a continual basis.

After we determine how we allocate our time, we need optimal efficiency is using our limited time for maximum effectiveness. This means that once we choose how to use our time, we must then optimize the time we have for maximum effectiveness and the best results. There are all sorts of books and resources on time management tips.

The key is to get a system that works for us and consistently and intentionally do them on an ongoing basis. This means becoming a doer and this takes action. Most people never get started and are not doers, so you get ahead simply by taking action and not stopping.

There is an old saying that “If you want something done, ask a busy person.” Busy people know how to optimize their time. They are the doers that get things done . . . and they don’t stop! Get time on your side!

Making time,
