Discovering what life is about

Stop managing your time, manage your focus

 

Stop managing your time manage your focus

How many time management courses have you attended and/or how many times have you said, “I could really do with help managing my time?”

 

It’s one of the most common topics that comes up when working with individuals / business owners. A desire to be more productive with the time we have available.

 

However, I’m here to throw a curveball. How about if I said to you, “it’s not your time you need to manage, but your focus?” There are 86,400 seconds in a day. Yes, that is right 86,400! I wonder if we are honest with ourselves, how many of those seconds we are laser focused on what we are supposed to be doing?

 

If you are not buying this – I urge you to think of a time when you were under serious time pressure. Maybe you needed to get a project completed by a deadline, maybe you had someone dropping into your house and you were rushing about clearing up before they came, or maybe you needed to get to an appointment and were running late.

 

In those moments, how focused are you? Do you allow distractions in or are you completely present to get done, what needs to be done? I wonder how much more productive you are in those moments of panic v’s other times in your day?

 

Back in 2015, I wrote and published an article on my LinkedIn page that discussed exactly this.

 

When looking for an image to accompany this article, I discovered the one below by Robin Sharma. Robin is hugely successful in the field of personal mastery – so it was nice to see a legend already thinking the same as me.---
