Since we are in an on-demand, all the time sort of world, I am often asked about time management.
In fact, I have been putting together a program on time management for business services professionals that I will be delivering for Barbri to law firms around the country…which is what made this poignant to me.
Back to time management…
The first principle is that you can’t do everything and you can’t work constantly.
The second principle is that if you don’t set any priorities, you have no priorities.
The third priniciple is that if you don’t plan, you plan to fail. (That one was cheesy, but I had to do it.)
If you pull these 3 keys together, you will see its pretty simple…
1. Set yourself some priorities for each day…lets say 4 to 6.
2. Block out some time for each activity.
3. Stick to accomplishing those.
Here’s the deal, if you don’t do this…someone else will and if they are setting the agenda, you aren’t going to like the outcome.
