The art of successful time management is understanding what’s most important and focusing your activities in those

areas.

The Art of Successful Time Management     

“The key to successful time management is doing the most important task first, and giving it your full concentration, to the exclusion of everything else.”

R.   Alec  MacKenzie, time management expect

 

As I see it . . . . . . .

The Art of Successful time management

 

Successful time management is the art of knowing what to do, how to do it, when to do it and why to do it.

 

Two additional key components successful time management are; knowing what’s not important and what should be either be not done or to be left undone. This area can become one of the biggest time wasters; that leads to very little progress and contributes very little to your future success.

 

One of the most important components of successful time management is to understand the things that are important and to focus on doing what’s important. 

 

When you focus on the things that are most important you are focusing your time on the things that will have a positive impact and get you closer to your goals.

 

Doing what’s important makes the best use of your time and has the greatest impact on your career.

 

The art of successful time management is understanding what’s most important and focusing your activities in those areas.

Time Management is a struggle, but it's also a habit that can be learned.  :)  Keep trying Catherine!

 

It's amazing how clearly some can point things out isn't it Laura!  I love his posts.

 

You are right Ginny, it's true for everything.

You are right Winston - time management is crucial for a successful real estate (or any!) career.

 

Endre - tell me when you "time block" for active rain . . . I had someone tell me that the best time to post is in the AM.  Do you agree?

 

I am a big list person too Will. . . I enjoy when I accomplish something on the list and I can CHECK IT OFF!  :)

 

Obiously with all you do Ron - you must have time management skills!
