Managing Your Time(Life)

How much time you put in and how much of yourself you put into that time, largely determines your earning ability. Poor time management is one of the major reasons for poor productivity and underachievement in every industry in America. It is the number one problem for both managers and salespeople in every field.
-Brian Tracy

Increase Your Earning Ability

The amount of money that you are paid today is a direct measure of the extent to which you have developed your earning ability so far.

Personal Management

Success in life is a product of a well-developed personal management attitude. Personal management on the other hand is better achieved by a good Time Management System. The way you use your time determines the results you get out of life.
Whether or not you're managing your time well is determined by the TASKS you embark upon. The importance/non-importance and/or urgency of the tasks you embark upon will determine how well you're managing your time, and thus the results(positive/negative) that you'll get.

Like Brian Tracy said in his book "GOALS", the most important word in determining the value of a particular task or activity is 'consequences'. A task that is valuable and important is a task that has serious consequences for completion or noncompletion. The greater the possible consequences of a task or activity, the more important it is.

A task for which there are few if any consequences is by definition not particularly important. Your aim in personal management, therefore, is to spend more time doing more of those tasks that can have the greatest possible consequences on your life and work.

PAUSE for a moment and think about how you have spent time in the few days this year has given!! How have you fared? However you have;if well, very good, but if not, then, it's never too late to start doing the right thing. START NOW! Plan your day, Plan your life.
Pursue those goals you've set for 2008. Be committed to them, be serious about them, and be disciplined enough to give it all that it requires to achieve every single one of them.

It's a great day. Go and Conquer Your World!

This post is meant to stir you up once again to keep aiming at your goal. I was listening to Bishop T.D. Jakes this morning speaking about 'working in a hostile environment', and he said that one of the things that keeps you going even in that hostile work environment is having the mindset that where you are now should not define where you're going.

It is absolutely true that even the whole universe is a hostile environment- you hear of people dying everyday, accidents everywhere, wars, natural disasters, etc, but we still got to live anyway.There is no 'comfort zone' anywhere on earth really; that is why even in the best otganisation, that hostility is still there. Everybody cannot like you no matter how nice or handsome you are. But we still must live and succeed!

One of the attitudes to develop to survive in this hostile environment is to remember that
'where you are is not a definition of where you are going'
.Get the best of where you are now, having the future in mind.You must always keep your mind on the goal. Never let it out of your sight.Never mind what your surrounding or environment is throwing at you; whether pebbles or rocks. Shake them off, and step on them to get higher. Dont let every little thing stop you. You have to move on.
