The problem with time management is that some of us are instinctively good at it, and some of us are not. I, by the way, am not!
Now this wouldn't be a problem except, ..to be good in business you need to be good at managing your resources. And what is your most important resource? You guessed it... TIME.
Nothing gets done without time. No progress is made without time. Having the right people, high quality unique products and an eager customer base would be of no value, unless time is added to the equation. Time is instantly perishable and cannot be stored, yet no business can be done without it.
So time is important. Time is also finite. Unlike other resources if you don't use it today, you can't use it twice tomorrow to catch up.
Time has to be managed, and the better you manage your time, the better you will manage yourself and your business.
Time management is, of course, a misnomer. You cannot manage time, you can only manage your use of the resource. Time will go on whether you manage it or not and that's one of the problems. Left to it's own devices, the resource fades away and before you know it, your three score years and ten are behind you and you're in extra time, if you are lucky.
It's never too late to start managing your time. Even if you have retired and you seem to have more than enough time on your hands, time management can provide opportunities and focus and help create a fulfilling life rather than a life that drifts from bowling green to soap opera then an early night.
This course is time management for right brainers like me. It is simple but extremely effective.
