common excuse that a lot of people have for not achieving their goals
in life is the lack of time. They claim that they are too
busy. They have to study or work all day and then do all
things at home. There may be kids to take care of
houses to clean. There's no time to pursue all the
that they really want to do in life. Life is
overwhelming so who's got time to think about success? If
the case for you, then I hear you loud and clear as a motivational
speaker, I can appreciate all the demands that life in general
have on us. A lot of us are constantly bogged down by
life. But don't worry as it just so happens that I have a twist on time
management training for you.
There's something we all have inside ourselves that I call our ‘Internal Importance Allocator’. You probably never heard of this term before even if you have been exposed to time management techniques because I made it up. Yes, it's a fancy motivational speaker term. We assign importance ratings to everything in life and allocate time to them. For example, we all brush our teeth because we all rate dental health as pretty important, right? We don’t want to gross out everyone else with bad breath. However, many of us don't do other things that are equally important for our health, like exercising. So this means that our Internal Importance Allocator may not always be working right.
So every now and then, we
have to recalibrate our
Internal Importance Allocators to reassign importance ratings to
everything we do. After all, there's no way that
TV should be rated as more important than our
What's more important than our health? As unique time
managment techniques, think about some of
things you have been neglecting and list them along with the activities
that you normally do on a day-to-day basis. You will then
list of things that you should be doing as well as your habitual
activities that you do on a daily basis. Then reassign
ratings to everything at the same time. You will
with a better balance of priorities in your life. This is a
different way of approaching your own time management training.
If you then look at a revised list of what's really important in your life and make real committed decisions to work on them, rather than just wishes, you would make the time for those goals. You will make a mental ‘kick yourself in the behind’ to reallocate your time in a more effective way that is constructive to success. Of course, this doesn't mean that you should be a workaholic. Being a ‘life champion’ (a term that is used in my book, The Life Champion In You) is also about balance since all areas of your life are considered. Time management techniques should have balance.
Remember, your goals should not be on a wish list. Instead, they should be on a top priority to-do list and mine is in my micro tool (a planning tool that is also described in The Life Champion In You). Recalibrate your Internal Importance Allocator as often as required in order for you to stay in tune with what's really important in life. The take home message here from this motivational speaker is that if something is truly important in your life, you will make the time for it. Now this is really putting effective time management into action with a slightly different angle. Hope this spin on time management techniques works for you.
