Do you ever wonder how some people can get so much done – whereas others struggle to just get through the day?
I do – often – and I wanted to look today at why this may be.
Why do some people have no time at all, when others can find the time to do everything they want to do? – What’s the key?

WE ALL HAVE THE SAME AMOUNT OF TIME
Starting off, of course – time is one of those things that makes every one of us equal.
There’s just no way on earth to create extra time. Whether you’re rich / poor / male / female – whoever you are you get the same amount – no more and no less.
So – how come some people can make that time count so much more?
IT’S WHAT YOU DO WITH IT THAT COUNTS…
The trick to getting the most out of your time is to make sure that you are spending time on what matters to you – and nothing more.
Filling your days with “busy” things only leads to getting nowhere fast – and that’s a problem most of us have,
There are lots of ways we can waste time – whether you find yourself saying YES too much, so as not to offend anyone – or whether you are doing things because you’ve always done them – without question – you may well be doing things that you really don’t need to be doing anymore.
After all – have you ever wondered how you find the time to cope with emergencies when they arise? You find the time because it needs to be found – no questions asked.
So you want to look at your standard days like this as well.
TREAT EVERY DAY LIKE IT MATTERS
How often do you go through your day running around like a mad man/woman – trying to get from A to B without forgetting anything, and trying to get everything done?
It’s a crazy life – but one that a large majority of us succumb to over the years.
Our days get more and more filled up – with home, work, family, friends, fitness, hobbies etc…. all wanting a piece of our day.
No wonder we feel like there’s no time – and it’s time to take a reality check on things…
THE TWO THINGS TO CONSIDER WHEN LOOKING AT YOUR TIME
You can distill your time management into two key areas –
- Consciousness of the time you have
- Your priorities
… each of these need to be looked at, and managed, in turn so that you can get a little breathing space in your day – sound good?
Let’s tackle each one in turn…
