As a coach, one of the things we ask clients is to get specific about how they measure success. Often, the client’s answer comes down to getting things accomplished in a timely manner, a.k.a. time “management,” which is really decision making.
Regardless of what kind of leadership role we have, it can often feel like we have many things to do and too little time to accomplish it. This is when it feels like the clock is our enemy. And in these times, we can flip the script and reframe the situation.
What if when we are busy, we think of time as our friend? What if we set a timer and give ourselves half of the time we wanted to take on a task and then focused intensely, without distraction? What if we delegated the less significant tasks to others or dropped them off our “to-do” list for the day?
We can accomplish a lot more than we think we can if we are willing to focus deeply and use time to our advantage.
Questions for wondering:
How can I use time to greater advantage in my work and life?
What needs to go from my “to-do” list for me to accomplish my next-level goals?
Stay curious friends!
