Time Management - Honor Your Time and Energy

Your time and energy are the two most precious gifts that you have. Evaluate each month where you are placing your time and energy. Here are some ways that I have used to help me honor where I place my time and energy:

Place a yellow sticky note on your telephone answering machine that says "Is this phone call the most valuable use of my time and energy?"

Find who you are on the inside and begin to live your life in accordance with this truth.

Where you place your time and energy today determines who you will become tomorrow.

Learn how to nicely say NO without feeling guilty. Try "Well I'm planning to do _______ then. Would you like to join me?"

Meetings are often a waste of time and energy. Whenever you add a meeting to your schedule, DROP at least one of your other ones.

If you have more than three (3) meetings scheduled throughout the week, get rid of at least one of them as soon as possible. Begin to notice which people and events drain energy from you and begin to decrease the time you spend with these people or doing these activities.

When you're spending time with someone or at some event, be aware of how often you look at your watch. If you look frequently at it, you probably would have more fun doing something else. This principle applies to your job as well. Stop watching the evening news. It is often more upsetting than informative. It usually has very little to do with what really matters in your life.

Try giving up TV for one week. Read a book, write letters, catch up with friends and family, bake a cake, etc. If a week is too long for you to go without TV, don't watch it during the weekend.

Don't act in the dramas others create for themselves.

Review your last month, week, day and hour. How did you spend your time and energy? If you could redo your last month, week, day and hour what would you change?
