Still Time-Crunched? Maybe it’s time to GO BEYOND TIME TYPICAL MANAGEMENT!
You probably know the challenge; you’ve tried the quick solutions to get more time in your day for the things that you want to do, but little has changed. But realistically there was little hope for results with greatly over-simplified solutions. I always like to remember that everyone’s situation is unique, and that from that viewpoint the solutions must be unique. What is needed is more than a one size fits all approach, but rather a simple step by step process that will identify the opportunities that we each have!
And if we don’t find that unique solution out of our Time-Crunched situation? The default penalty is to remain frustrated and overloaded. We will continue to fall short of our potential, and that can be very disappointing!
What does going Beyond Time Management look like?
- We see improvement quickly with a few targeted actions. Those targeted actions will have the largest impact for our situation, and may be outside of the typical time management recommendations.
- We first analyze, and then act. We won’t jump at every suggestion that usually don’t even apply to us and can often lead to even more frustration.
- At DouglasCalvin.com we go Beyond Time Management taking a step-by-step view of our unique situations, and then narrow down the actions accordingly. There is no “one size fits all” approach. We follow simple steps that ensure success, covering the 5 W’s (WHO, WHAT, WHEN, WHERE, WHY), and the all important HOW to make sure we have a sustainable system to keep our life in balance!
I’m so Time-Crunched that I don’t have time to work on the solution!
I know the feeling all too well. How can we logically spend time on our time challenges – won’t that just put us further in the hole?
Well, yes and no. What is critical is to begin the journey and find a few quick wins with big time savings to get us immediately on the plus side. I think this quote from an unknown author simplifies it well:
“We are too busy mopping the floor to turn off the faucet.”
We may think that we don’t have the time to stop and make positive steps, but the reality is we don’t have the time NOT to act!
Why will it work for me – nothing else has?
It may surprise many of us that the solutions have been available for years, but most people are not aware of them. I have used these concepts and principles globally in both individual and business and in diverse cultures, and can attest the success of those that apply the principles. But that success always comes with a willingness to learn and apply the principles to the unique situation.
It is not complicated, not does it take a lot of time. I will be presenting you the basic SIMPLE CONCEPTS for POWERFUL RESULTS in three phases:
Visualize the Possibilities
Analyze the Opportunities
Realize the Improvements
Inside of these 3 phases resides only Seven Steps to Time-Crunched Freedom!
We are all unique, but the solution steps to solving our Time-Crunched challenges are similar. To find SUCCESS we will have to go way beyond typical TIME MANAGEMENT and address the 5 W’s and the HOW, We will be discussing those concepts in the context of 3 Phases and 7 Steps to Time-Crunched Freedom. I invite you to follow along and to participate in the conversation when we will get into more detail, Stop “Mopping Your Floor”, and let’s “TURN OFF YOUR FAUCET”!
