The Secret to Having More Time

Time only needs ‘managing’ because we don’t seem to have enough time to do everything we want and need to do. In particular, we never seem to be able to ‘find time’ for those important but not urgent activities. Stop looking.   You’ll never find time. It isn’t lost. You’re living it. You have to consciously decide to live it in certain ways and not others. You have to make time by taking it away from one activity and giving it to another. Start Living Liz Cassidy   Action: What is most important for you to do this week? Make the time to do it.   It’s not about not having enough time it’s about it not being a priority.   Thank you and I look forward to sharing more tips, strategies and skills to support you to be more organised so that you too can create a better...

Do You Ever Feel That There is Never Enough Time?

Comments Off on Do You Ever Feel That There is Never Enough Time?
Do you ever feel that there is never enough time to do everything you have to do and feeling that you are never going to catch up? You can get control of your time and your life only by changing the way you think, work and deal with the never ending list of responsibilities that flows towards you each day. What you can do is stop doing some things and start spending more time on the few activities that can really make a difference in your life. Success is Predictable Simply put, some people are doing better than others because they do things differently and they do the things right.

Live Your Life With an Attitude of Gratitude

Cultivating gratefulness enhances your life and will provide long-term emotional rewards.  How grateful are you for your life, for those around you, for where you live, for having running water everyday? We live in an extremely materialistic age.  It is standard to expect so much, often too much.  The fact we have and own so much appears to have an impact on how grateful we actually are.  Some of us tend to focus on what we don’t have at times rather than what we do have. Imagine what it would be like if you started every morning being grateful.  Grateful for a wonderful night’s sleep, grateful for a warm bed, grateful for a comfortable mattress, grateful for being able to sleep in your own room.  Wouldn’t that be a positive way...

How to Increase Your Energy Levels – Spiritually

We have been focusing on energy levels the last few articles. Specifically the four levels of energy which are: Physical Emotional Mental Spiritual Last week, we looked at the Mental Energy Levels.  In numerous workplaces, the message is that we need to work longer to increase our productivity. Many workplaces no longer have formal morning and afternoon tea breaks. We think we’re getting more done when we continue to work through lunch. A workout during the middle of the day is frowned upon. We’re encouraged to keep our heads down and grind away for as long as we can.

We’re aware that many of us know we’re the ‘best person for the job’ and letting go can be hard. However, to grow and develop as an individual, we have to start taking on new work, roles and responsibilities. We won’t be able to do this efficiently if we don’t start letting go of some of our other jobs. Perhaps if we can be clear on the benefits of delegation.

Time Management – Delegating

Comments Off on Time Management – Delegating

Delegating is a fantastic time management tool with incredible benefits both for you and the person you are delegating the task to. Don’t confuse delegating jobs with telling people what to do. When delegating, you don’t “tell someone to do stuff.” You give them responsibility and ownership of regular work; such as, ordering the stationery, collecting feedback from clients, updating clients with their job order.
