Achievement takes time but it is not about managing time. All of us whether we are rich or poor, happy or unhappy have 24 hours in a day.
We all start with the same amount of time. What we manage is how we use our time.
And to do that effectively, you must have objectives and focus for each day. Not only that, but to stay focused you must be able to see a long term outcome that excites you.
Most people don’t take objectives seriously. They put average effort into a lot of things thinking that by being involved in a great number of activities that it will yield them greater results.
Notice the word ‘effort’ in the last sentence. It is the key to success. Effort is the amount of energy you are able to put into something.
When people say, “I don’t have enough time to do this” most of the time what they are really saying is that “I don’t have enough energy to do this.”
If you have the energy to put superior thought and effort into a few things then you will keep your focus, increase the odds of accomplishing your objectives and having greater success.
Think about how you are managing your energy. When you understand what gives you energy and what takes it away you will be ready to better utilize your time to accomplish your objectives.
How you manage your energy will determine what you do with your time.
