What is Time Management?

Time management is a broad subject that in its simplest form is about managing your time and energy so that you can produce as high quality results as possible.

As you know if you have followed us for a while Wednesdays is the day in which we delve deeper into subjects through series, we just finished our series on Motivation and it is time to start a new series.

For the next several weeks we will be publishing an article about time management every Wednesday.
Before we delve deeper into the subject of time management and different techniques to use I want to first define what time management is.

Time Management
Time management is in its simplest form managing your time and energy so that you can produce as high quality results as possible.

As you can guess being good at time management will help you produce more, at a higher quality, which will help you get promoted, and more importantly, decrease stress and give you more time off.

Time management is;
A combination of mindsets, techniques and a discipline.

It teaches you both to stop procrastinating, to organize, to prioritize, to plan and each one of these disciplines will help reinforce the others.

You can never waste time studying time management
What is great about time management is that you can never waste time learning time management since it will help you gain it back. By learning different techniques and putting it together to a system that fits you and your needs it will all start to compound and gain you time exponentially.

The next weeks
During the next weeks you will get an array of techniques and mindsets that will help you become more efficient, I hope you take these techniques and put them together into a system that works for you.

We will be sharing ways to put it together, but what works for some doesn’t necessarily work for all.
The only common denominator is that we can all become better at time management and we can all learn from this discipline.

The first part of this series will start next Wednesday but if you want some advice right away you should join our newsletter “Your Path to Your Dreams” since it starts with a crash course on time management.

  1. Hi Daniel –

    I am really looking forward to this series. I especially love that you included mindset in your description of the elements of time management. Can’t wait to see what you write about that!

    I also love how you’ve said you can’t waste time studying time management. Funny and true!

    I feel like I should fasten my seat belt… you have a great deal of knowledge on this topic. You practice it. You study it. I’m so glad you’re going to share what you know.

    This is going to be good!

      Hey Theresa,

      Thanks, I hope you enjoy it.
      I have a surprise though which I hope I can share in a few weeks about how I plan on moving this to the next level :)

    Thank you for sharing your knowledge. Can’t wait to see what you have to say about time management and how it correlates to our energy! ;-)

    Interestingly enough Daniel, I’ve just come from Mark Harai’s site, where his latest post is about time management! Least I’m staying on topic ;-)

    I think, about time management, is that a lot of what we allocate our time to is worthless, or excessive. Sure, we need to socialise, but do we need that much time down the bar drinking? And sure, we can get a little TV time here and there to watch inspiring programmes, but is it really worth the 3 hour stretch?

    Looking forward to the rest of the series :-)

      Hey Stuart.
      Time management is an important subject, I am glad a lot of people talk about it.
      I’ll try to share as actionable advice as possible. It will hopefully help you become much more efficient.

      I agree about the TV, but I do believe the most important benefit of time management is that you become so efficient that you can plan for 3 hours of TV without having any regrets about it.

      • Stuart says:

        That’s a great way of putting it Daniel! I would say though, that not having regrets about things like watching too much TV involves a lot more than time management techniques. But it’s definitely in there ;-)
