You Don’t Need Time Management. So, What?

Happy New Month to all. Congratulations on being part of May’s history.

Back to our business of the day. The concept of time management is so common in all aspects of human life. The conversation around time management is continuous and there is no sign that it will come to the end any time soon.

As the world evolves, distractions increase and people’s attention is divided which affects productivity. Then, the need for time management is raised to help individuals make effective use of the limited time.

There are paid and free time management courses on the internet, while some organizations also organize similar training for their staff. Still, after such training, some of the trainees could not manage the time to get the desired result.

The topic of this write says you don’t need time management. So, what?  It sounds awkward to say so. About 99 percent of people in the world sees a lack of effective time management as a serious problem that hinders the achievement of individuals and organizational goals. If someone does not need time management, what does he need?

Fact: Everybody has equal time which is 24 hours in a day according to our calendar calculation. If we have equal time and also have the freedom to use the time as we like, shouldn’t that be a management issue?  It is, but what do you do with 24 hours? You use it to do several activities. There is no vacuum in time. Every second of the time is used for something.

The problem is not the time, because you can’t get more than 24hours in a day. The issue lies in the activities. And every activity has a different value per time. This is where prioritizing come in.

In the words of Bruce Schultz,  I quote:

“Priorities define life and help successful men to make the best out of their lives.”

Our success depends on our priorities.

What You Need.

You need priority management. What you do within the available time determines the result you will get. If you go out for leisure when you suppose to read your books and prepare for exams; the outcome of your going out at the wrong time will be a failure or a low grade. Going out is an activity, but you prioritized it over reading and preparing for the exams. Someone that reads while you went out for leisure will get a high score as the outcome. He can still go out at a later time.

The same thing happens when you prioritize watching comedy or spending time scrolling through different social media platforms to the detriment of using the data to take personal development courses that would build your capacity to give more value and be better at what you do

It is pertinent to concentrate on prioritizing our activities based on our goals. By so doing, you reinforced priority management for the brain to accept it as the way to go instead of worrying about how to manage time. Time never changes, but we have the power to change or control what we do with the available time.

Priority management should be our focus if we desire success. We can change our life narratives through growth-oriented activities assigned to the limited time we have. Not every activity is important, go for what matters at the time.

To get it right, look at the expected outcome. Measure it based on its value to your present and future life.

Inability to manage our priorities effectively leads to loss of precious time, low productivity, failure in achieving set goals, low income earning, etc.

Upgrade from struggling to manage time to learn how to manage priorities within the available time. Be committed to the course and you will experience exponential growth in your chosen career.

Thank you for reading my 1kobo thoughts. Be great.
