How To Conquer Your Most Difficult Goals: Lets Dive Into Part 4

Welcome to part 4 of the series, “How To Conquer Your Most Difficult Goals“.

We have covered a good amount of material so far and if you have not read part 3, then I would recommend that you click here to go to Part 3 of How To Conquer Your Most Difficult Goals.

Do worry we will be here when you finish. I assure you it would be beneficial to have the information.

With that out of the way let us talk about Choosing A Path and Faith.

 

How To Conquer Your Most Difficult Goals How To Conquer Your Most Difficult Goals: Which Path To Choose

 

Go forward or give up? There are no wrong choices. At this point of transition, do not force yourself. Do not inflict judgement upon yourself. Realize that you have invited yourself to question an essential belief you hold to be true about yourself. Maybe the time is right to sit with this, maybe the time is not yet right.

 

How To Conquer Your Most Difficult Goals: The Litmus Test

If it is your destiny to allow yourself to have what your goal represents, you will create the opportunity once again. Relax. Recognize how terrifying this moment is and find compassion for yourself. What path should you choose? Carlos Castaneda wrote in, “The Teaching of Don Juan”, “Does the path have heart? If it does, the path is good; if it doesn’t, it is of no use.

Both paths lead nowhere; but one has heart and the other doesn’t. One makes you strong; the other weakens you.”

Perhaps the real transition at this choice point is the courage to open your heart to yourself as you witness yourself experiencing what you fear most.

How To Conquer Your Most Difficult GoalHow To Conquer Your Most Difficult Goals: Appeal To Your Greater Faith

 

As I continue on my journey, I have learned that achieving greater faith is an ongoing journey. and not just a one step process. Each of us have many limiting belief systems within that must be faced, accepted, and released. Faith in anything, including myself, is an infinite and ever expanding experience.

There is a passage in Betty Eadie’s book, “Awakening the Heart” where she describes faith as an ongoing process. First we have knowledge. Then belief. We practice belief over and over again, and eventually faith begins to develop. Whether you are talking about faith in a god, or faith in yourself, it is not something you wake up with one day.

At least that is not my experience. It takes going back to the dark places to re-establish faith. Learning to be kind to our spirit that may be scared, stubborn, and even defiant.

Although it is painful and we may desperately want to run from what we feel, only by sitting with our spirit that is hiding in the darkness and bringing it love that we can re-establish faith.

I have often wished at times it weren’t so. It is excruciatingly painful to uncover what hurts within us. But we eventually discover truth: it is only our own misconception, our own belief, our own judgement and punishment, that we are not worthy. The reward is deciding, to our amazement, that it really is okay to open our own heart to all aspects of our self.

 

How To Conquer Your Most Difficult Goal: Final Thoughts

 

We have covered a lot of material over the different parts. I want to thank everyone especially those who have read, commented, and/or shared all four posts. Be Sure to look out for other series as they are presented.

Till then have a great day and put what you learned into action.

How To Conquer Your Most Difficult Goal

How To Conquer Your Most Difficult Goals: Lets Dive Into Part 3

Welcome to part 3 of the series, “How To Conquer Your Most Difficult Goals“.

We have covered a good amount of material so far and if you have not read part 2, then I would recommend that you click here to go to Part 2 of How To Conquer Your Most Difficult Goals.

Do worry we will be here when you finish. I assure you it would be beneficial to have the information.

With that out of the way let us talk about Dealing With The Right Now.

 

How To Conquer Your Most Difficult Goals How To Conquer Your Most Difficult Goals: Dealing With The Right Now

 

To move through this doubt and despair, sit with what you feel. Speak the words of frustration and anger. Write them down. Often times what we most need is someone else to allow us to fully be in a place of utter hopeless.

For them to say, “I see you there, and it’s okay.” And to know they won’t attempt to fix it or make it better.

 

How To Conquer Your Most Difficult Goals: Give Yourself Some Compassion

 

We need to offer ourselves the same compassion. To look at ourselves in our moments of despair and say, “It’s okay that I feel this. It’s okay that I am experiencing this.”

To offer ourselves the love and compassion of not trying to fix ourselves. If confusion is what you feel, fully feel confusion, with love for yourself as you feel it. Open your body and let confusion and expand within you. Experiment (with a therapist if this is too difficult) with not being afraid of your own emotions.

Avoid the temptation to retreat into old patterns of starving, overeating, bingeing, or numbing out with other addictions. The fact that you are feeling such confusion is not a sign of failure. This is a sign of growth and courage.

 

How To Conquer Your Most Difficult GoalHow To Conquer Your Most Difficult Goals: See The Good In The Storm

Even though the feelings are difficult, recognize the value of being exactly where you are. Attempt to be with your feeling without judgement. Feel what you feel with acceptance. Accept that you are experiencing despair, hopelessness or frustration. No need to judge it. No need to defend it. No need to analyze it and figure out where this came from. It is acceptable to feel misery.

It is acceptable to want to give up. We’ve all felt that at times. Your task at this critical point is to find a way to open your heart and receive to your own despair.

Cry the tears, shout the anger, give witness to the unfairness of it all. Then decide. Even though you are at a dead end, what can you do right now? It might seem so much easier to go back to food, bingeing, alcohol, starving, exercise, or diversions for comfort. But is that what you really want?

Refocus your thoughts away from the future and bring yourself back to right now. Bring words of power and encouragement. ”

I possess the gifts of inner belief, patience, conviction and discipline. I can choose my goals and I have the strength and stamina to reach for them.

I am a working and viable part of the world and I have an important job to do. I am not afraid to believe in my inner strength or my power.”

How To Conquer Your Most Difficult Goals Part 2

How To Conquer Your Most Difficult Goal

How To Conquer Your Most Difficult Goals: Lets Dive Into Part 2

Welcome to part 2 of the series, “How To Conquer Your Most Difficult Goals“.

We have covered a good amount of material so far and if you have not read part 1, then I would recommend that you click here to go to Part 1 of How To Conquer Your Most Difficult Goals.

Do worry we will be here when you finish. I assure you it would be beneficial to have the information.

With that out of the way let us talk about Dark Pits.

 

How To Conquer Your Most Difficult Goals: Dark Pits

 

With great change comes the risk of facing the darkness of what we believe about ourselves. Sometimes it’s fairly easy to face the darkness and bring light. But sometimes we fall directly into the pit. If you fall in, take a breath and know this experience has great value. You are only here because you are ready to explore and encounter a horrible idea that you have about yourself.

An idea that you can’t have what you want, that your best isn’t good enough, or that no matter what you do things remain hopeless. Inside the dark hole are ideas you made up about yourself when you were a child as an attempt to explain the experience of growing up.

 

How To Conquer Your Most Difficult Goals How To Conquer Your Most Difficult Goals: Learn To Deal With The Dark Side

Your spirit is hiding in the darkness, waiting for your return. So if you are in the dark pit of despair you are in a place of  a bleat fortune. You have reached the place in which you have hidden your spirit. Only you can choose to bring you spirit back into the light.

As you face the darkness, will you decide to heal your spirit by offering it encouragement? Will you reassure your spirit and bring new information?

 

How To Conquer Your Most Difficult Goals: You Chose The Dark Side?

Let’s say you decide to be with your darkness? Now what? You must sit with it. Sit with the pain of what this darkness represents. Yes, it feels overwhelming. Confusing. Hopeless. In the darkness there are only dark thoughts. Do not fight the darkness with more darkness (anger, frustration, threats, hopelessness . . ).

It would only create a larger darkness. ACCEPTANCE alone is the key. The darkness and despair fights with all it’s might to keep us believing that we are weak and defective. Not because it is evil, but because we put these beliefs into place to keep our spirits safely hidden in the dark.

As an adult, you now hold the key to accept the darkness, to accept all the dark thoughts, and offer it love and light. Listen to your spirit. Let it speak its words of fear.

Then offer your spirit comfort and acceptance. After all, your spirit went through some pretty tough times that it deciding hiding was the only safe option.

You have traveled quite a distance, only to come to a dead end. Accept that you do not have what you want. Accept this. Not with anger, not with frustration. Simply breath and accept. It doesn’t matter why you are at this point. It is as it is. Now go more deeply into it.

 

How To Conquer Your Most Difficult Goals How To Conquer Your Most Difficult Goals: Venturing To The Transition Point

This point of transition can provide opportunity to strengthen your spirit and not let outside circumstances throw you off balance. This is a pivotal occasion to choose empowering thoughts, practice gentleness and reassurance, and reinforce your belief that you can have what you want.

Accept the experience as best you can. It will lead to insight.

Acceptance of what is, even though it might feel terrifying, is the way out. Acceptance is not apathy. Use acceptance to allow you to go deeper.

A journal, a therapist, or a trusted friend may help as you sit with these questions:

1. What am I experiencing right now?

2. What are my thoughts concerning this experience?

3. What am I feeling?

4. What do I believe about myself, my place in the world, as I encounter this dead end?

5. Is this similar to how I felt in certain situations as a child?

5. What does my spirit need to feel safe and trusting?

6. If I was wise and loving, how would I comfort myself?

How To Conquer Your Most Difficult Goal Part 1

How To Conquer Your Most Difficult Goal

How To Conquer Your Most Difficult Goal: What Would You Like To Change?

Everyone has something in their life that they would like to change. Some really big goals include overcoming addiction, achieving and sustaining weight loss, attaining inner peace, manifesting health, or becoming more successful. We are born to continuously expand our abilities.

The beginning of most goals are exciting. Visions of triumph flourish in the minds of those starting a path of change. Each new day brings energy to chase down the most elusive of goals.

But what if you’ve been working on manifesting the same dream for years? And one day, despite your optimism, despite the effort of applying the tools of empowerment, you realize that you have not acquired the goal which you set for yourself.

 

How To Conquer Your Most Difficult Goal: What About Obstacles?

Encountering a obstacle, even a seemingly insurmountable obstacle, doesn’t mean you are on the wrong path. We all experience despair and doubt. Times where we question the worth of what we do.

Moments of temptation to give up. I have them, as does each person I work with. I would wager that everyone striving to become more than they were before, reaches a critical time of choice.

Feeling sorry for yourself is not a wrong action. What we often fail to see is the value in this pit of despair. This experience of despair is precisely what is necessary for the breakthrough to occur.

How To Conquer Your Most Difficult GoalHow To Conquer Your Most Difficult Goal: Understanding Belief Systems And Internal Tapes

The dark experiences of despair are not logical, nor solved intellectually. These moments of darkness mean we have brought ourselves back to the core of what we believe about ourselves.

Deep painful beliefs that we would rather keep hidden from ourselves and from others. The pain of not yet achieving our goals forces us to look at what we believe to be true about ourselves.

Limiting beliefs are varied, but can include the following:

“Something is wrong with me.”

“I never get what I want.”

“I cant’ get what I want, no matter what I do. It’s hopeless.”

“Who I am is not enough.”

“I don’t belong.”

 

How To Conquer Your Most Difficult Goal: You Are In Control

When we are undergoing change, the realization we must make is that is it not what faces us that is the problem, but how we are reacting to it.

How we react to the situation is based on our inner beliefs about ourselves. The despair is felt because you have increased inner conflict.

Conflict of what you want to believe versus what you actually believe. This conflict must either be suppressed (by giving up the goal) or the conflict must be resolved (goal is attained or a new belief system becomes integrated.).

 

How To Conquer Your Most Difficult GoalHow To Conquer Your Most Difficult Goal: The Breaking Point

It is at this very pressure point, giving up or moving forward, that allows the choice to step into a new belief about yourself or to reinforce an old belief. Just because things seem insurmountable right now, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be following this path.

It only means you are face to face with what you believe. And an inner belief system being threatened can result in a variety of symptoms, the most common being negative thoughts, suicidal thoughts, hopelessness, low energy, panic or anxiety, or worrying about small details.

The Biggest Mistakes You Can Make Before Hiring A Coach

The Biggest Mistakes You Can Make Before Hiring A Coach: Why You May Need A Coach

One of the man questions I hear is, ” Do I Really Need A Coach?”. My response was it depends. However as time progress and examining people, I noticed that anyone who ask that question really do need a coach. The people go at it by themselves screw somethings up and become stuck, go into bankruptcy, and/or have a nervous breakdown.

That is why, I have made a list of mistakes that were made before acquiring a coach. This will be a like a David Letterman countdown but instead of 10, I will have 7.

We have covered 3-7 from the countdown in part 3. If you have not read part 3 then click here, “The Biggest Mistakes You Can Make Before Hiring A Coach” to check it out.

The Biggest Mistakes You Can Make Before Hiring A CoachThe Biggest Mistakes You Can Make Before Hiring A Coach Mistake #2 – Waiting For A “Good” Time To Go After The Things You Really Want In Life

Guess what, there is no good time. Life will always be busy. There will always be family and business obligations to attend to, errands to run, chores to do, TV programs to watch and people and projects that want your time, energy and money. Your life will always be busy and it will always get in the way of what you really want, if you let it.

Wondering what you can do about it? You can stop kidding yourself. Today. Stop kidding yourself that the perfect time is just around the corner or sometime off in the future. Instead, decide to join forces with a professional who can teach you how to make the most of every moment starting right now.

Your coach will hold you accountable while keeping you focused and on track to achieving your goals no matter what life throws at you.

The Biggest Mistakes You Can Make Before Hiring A CoachThe Biggest Mistakes You Can Make Before Hiring A Coach Mistake #1 – Telling Yourself You Can’t Afford A Coach

The truth is that you can’t afford not to have one.  Coaches are highly in demand these days because coaching has proven itself to be an extremely effective method for facilitating personal and professional development and fulfillment.

The word is out everywhere, it’s in the media, it’s in corporations and it’s in the community. The word is out that coaching makes sense and it really works. In studies that have been done on the impact of coaching, the results have consistently shown a return on investment of more than 100%.

Coaching clients from all walks and areas of life consistently report that it is the best money they ever spent because their investment in an ongoing coaching partnership enables them to achieve their goals. What’s even better is coaching enables them to achieve their goals quicker, easier and with better results. Now think about that for a moment. Think about what that means for you. Anything you want is available to you quicker, easier and with better results through the vehicle of coaching.

 

The Biggest Mistakes You Can Make Before Hiring A CoachThe Biggest Mistakes You Can Make Before Hiring A Coach: Final Thoughts

If you are still unsure consider this, it’s not enough for you to say you want things to be different.  Just wanting something doesn’t make it so.  You must make a decision and then take purposeful action toward what you want. When you put your money where your mouth is and invest in a coaching program you demonstrate your commitment to achieving the thing that you want and at the same time you cut yourself off from any possibility other than total success.

Thank you for joining me in the discussion and hope it was insightful to you. If you are currently part of the team, you know that we already have coaching in place and you can see the benefits. For those who are not, I would recommend finding one or you can join our team. Again thank you look for other series that we will explore.

The Biggest Mistakes You Can Make Before Hiring A CoachThe Biggest Mistakes You Can Make Before Hiring A Coach Mistake #3 – Wasting Your Time And Money On Stuff That Doesn’t Give Results

Let’s face it; there are an infinite number of things that you can spend your hard earned money and valuable time on these days. When you know you want things to be different or better it’s easy for you to waste your time and your money in one of two ways.

The first one is spending your time and money collecting information that comes in the form of  books, software, seminars, reports or programs. You are collecting information that you believe can help you get what you want.

Now don’t get the wrong idea here, information is a great thing. We are big believers in books and programs being critical tools in helping you get where you want to go, but we want to make something very clear here.

Information alone will not get you results. You cannot expect that your sales will automatically increase just because you read the Guru of Sales’ latest book and you can’t assume that your monthly expenses will automatically organize themselves just because you purchased the newest expenses tracking software.

You will get fulfilling results only by taking consistent action toward achieving your goals based on what you’ve learned from the information you’ve collected.

 

The Biggest Mistakes You Can Make Before Hiring A CoachThe Biggest Mistakes You Can Make Before Hiring A Coach: Don’t Use Energy On Unnecessary Things

 

The second way you may be wasting your time and money is by acquiring and participating in things that have nothing to do with, and even go against, you having what you really want.

Have you ever allowed a month to go by where you indulged every food craving you had and did not exercise regularly, even though your deepest desire is to achieve and maintain a healthy body weight and lifestyle? Have you ever gone out and bought an expensive gadget you don’t really need or can’t really afford when what you truly desire is to feel successful and experience financial freedom?

If this sounds like you then you know what it’s like to be running on the hamster wheel of short term gain, in the form of immediate gratification, leading you to long term pain because your life experiences don’t match up with what you really want?

It’s very important to realize that spending your time or money on things that give you immediate gratification but have nothing to do with your goals and values will always leave you feeling empty. Completely and totally empty and looking for the next quick fix.

Instead of wasting your time and money, why not invest in yourself in a way that will accelerate your personal and professional development? Working with a coach on an ongoing basis is the most time and cost effective investment you can make in yourself and your quality of life.

Your coach can teach you how to make the most of what you’ve got and how to do more with less. Your coach will hold you accountable for taking consistent purposeful action towards achieving your goals.

By working with a coach, you will get crystal clear on what you really want, why you want it and how to get it. Having clarity takes the guess work out of things. That way, you will be able to evaluate all future investment opportunities, and by that we mean any and all opportunities for you to spend your time or money, according to their ability to enable you to fulfill your purpose, your vision, your values and your goals.

Let us continue with number 5

 

The Biggest Mistakes You Can Make Before Hiring A CoachThe Biggest Mistakes You Can Make Before Hiring A Coach Mistake #5 – Believing That You Have To Work Harder In Order To Achieve Your Goals

 

Do you have dreams or desires that you’ve left unfulfilled because you can’t imagine bringing them to life without adding a lot more to your already jam packed schedule?
It may surprise you to know that coaching can enable you to be more, do more and have more by working smarter instead of harder.

Your coach will lead you through an efficient process. You’ll begin by getting crystal clear about what you do and do not want in your life. What’s great about that is that when you figure out the things in your life that you’re tolerating or doing just because you feel like you should you can create a lot of extra space in your schedule to tackle the things that are truly meaningful to you. Next, you will develop an action plan that details what it’s going to take, the what by when, for you to reach your goals. Finally, you will stay focused and on track by being accountable to your coach for taking consistent action and you will learn how to overcome any challenges that come up along the way.

If you want to learn how to work smarter instead of harder, coaching is a wise investment of your time and money.

 

The Biggest Mistakes You Can Make Before Hiring A CoachThe Biggest Mistakes You Can Make Before Hiring A Coach Mistake #4 – Blaming External Factors

 

Do you find yourself wishing other people were different; easier to get along with, more positive, more successful, trustworthy or kind? Or, do you find yourself thinking about how your life would be better if your circumstances were different if only you had a better job, more money, more time or more opportunity?

Are you telling yourself that these external factors are responsible for what’s not working in your life or for preventing you from having what you want?

It can be very tempting to get caught up in this paradigm. But the reality is that if you are looking for or waiting for something outside of yourself to change and give you what you want, you will be waiting, and frustrated, for a very long time.

The reason for this is that you do not have control over anything outside of you.  What you do have, though, is total control over yourself. You have total control over your thoughts, your actions and your results.

It is a fact that your circumstances will change when you make a committed decision to do the things that will move you in the direction of what you want to experience in your life, and then do them. Hiring a coach is one of the smartest things you can do to ensure you take control and create the reality you want to experience.

The Biggest Mistakes You Can Make Before Hiring A CoachThe Biggest Mistakes You Can Make Before Hiring A Coach  Mistake #7  –  Having The “Lone Ranger” Mentality

If you think that the best way, or the only way for you to achieve your goals is to do it by yourself then you have Lone Ranger Mentality. Do you believe that reaching out to someone, and a professional someone for that matter, somehow indicates that you aren’t “something” enough? That it somehow means you’re incapable and not smart enough, strong enough or good enough?

Well let me assure you, the people who come to coaching are all of those things, extremely capable, smart, strong and a whole lot more. They choose coaching because they are ready to accelerate their personal or professional lives and work with a professional who will enable them to achieve their goals faster, easier and with better results than they could on their own.

A coach will facilitate your self discovery, the identification of your goals and the prioritization of those goals. Your coach will help you create your action plan as well as prepare for and overcome any challenges you encounter along the way.

Your coach will hold you accountable for taking consistent action toward the realization of your goals. Accountability is one of the greatest payoffs of coaching. It is so powerful because it can make all the difference in terms of you being a Goal Achiever instead of just a Goal Setter and someone who walks the walk instead of just talking the talk.

Think of your coach as your success partner, whose reason for being is to help you get what you want quicker, easier and with better results than you could on your own.

The Biggest Mistakes You Can Make Before Hiring A CoachThe Biggest Mistakes You Can Make Before Hiring A Coach Mistake #6 – Settling For Good Instead Of Going For Great

 

If you’re thinking your life is good and you’re relatively satisfied, congratulations! That did not happen on its own. You have obviously done some fabulous work.

You’ve already proven you’re the kind of person who proactively goes after what you want and you get it. So why would you settle for anything less than great? Why would you settle for living in black and white when you could be living in technicolor? Do you really want to play it safe and stay comfortable? Playing it safe and staying comfortable can take you no further than good.

Most of our clients are people who are already very successful.  Now that they’ve personally experienced the power of coaching they tell us that they realize just how much less they were settling for, for themselves and their lives. They were settling for good when they could have been experiencing great.

These clients also tell us that coaching has dramatically increased the quality of their lives in all areas, from increased sales to enhanced relationships and from better health to increased productivity. They feel, many for the very first time, that they are fully and vibrantly alive.

So we challenge those of you who are settling. We challenge you to stop settling for good. Like Jim Collins said, “Good is the enemy of Great”. We challenge you to go for GREAT and beyond with coaching.

How to Effectively Manage Your Time Part 3

How To Conquer Your Most Difficult Goals

How to Effectively Manage Your Time: Yay, It Is Officially a Trilogy

Welcome back we are going to continue where we left off in part 2 of this series. If you have not read it, then I recommend that you click here to read part 2 of How to Effectively Manage Your Time.

Also you would have an opportunity to check out part 1 from the link as well. So go now before proceeding forward.

How to Effectively Manage Your TimeHow to Effectively Manage Your Time: Let’s Start The Third Installment

 

How to Effectively Manage Your Time : Starting Each New Day

In reality, this can mean taking action at the end of the previous day, your last task of the day being to plan your specific activities, perhaps as a simple actions or to-do list, with times, perhaps as a list of priorities, that you intend to complete on the following day.

Then, on starting work the next day you will have an action plan waiting for you. As the day proceeds, you should review your progress at intervals, and make adjustments where necessary.

Then, at the end of the day, draw up the action plan, the list, for the next day.

How to Effectively Manage Your Time: Building In Break Times

Don’t fall into the trap of trying to work continuously, all day without stopping, working through all your breaks, and worse, not taking a lunch break.

Overwhelming evidence shows that we need to have breaks, and that without them our performance deteriorates dramatically the longer we go without.

You should take at least one short break mid morning, a minimum of 30 minutes at lunchtime, and a short break in the afternoon.

Your organization should encourage you to take these breaks, as it is required by health and safety at work legislation.

How to Effectively Manage Your TimeHow to Effectively Manage Your Time : Starting Each New Week

Try to adopt the same approach as with daily planning. At the end of the last day of your working week, draw up an action plan for the next week, or at least for the first day in detail and the rest of the week in outline.

 

How to Effectively Manage Your Time: Starting Each New Month

again, adopt the same approach as with weekly planning. During the last week of the calendar of budgetary month, prepare your action plan for the following month.

How to Effectively Manage Your Time : Strategic Planning

In parallel with the daily, weekly, and monthly planning, you should also have background plan that focuses on medium term and long term objectives.

These can be workplace performance targets, such as end of year financial results, but should also include softer, but equally important targets, such as the development of individuals and teams (not forgetting your own, personal, development objectives).

They can also include targets such as the improvement of working conditions, or relationships, for example between departments or with suppliers.

These longer term plans should be referred to and progress reviewed, on at least a monthly basis.

How to Effectively Manage Your TimeHow to Effectively Manage Your Time : Final Thoughts

In summary: without a structured approach to managing your time it is inevitable that you will run into difficulties, miss important deadlines, not give enough attention to your career and personal development, not deal fully with the needs of your team members, allow others to dictate how you spend your time at work.

The result is that work will become a burden, and your performance will deteriorate. In addition, others will notice and your performance will be judged negatively.

By following the simple, practical, steps outlined here, you will take control of the time you spend at work, and take control of the activities that you carry out.

Once you have consistently applied these techniques for a month or two, they will become habit, absorbed seamlessly into your daily work life.

You will find that you have less conflict, fewer problems, and you will meet most of your deadlines and targets.  You will be managing your time effectively.

How to Effectively Manage Your Time Part 2

How to Effectively Manage Your Time

How to Effectively Manage Your Time: Yes There Is More

Welcome back we are going to continue where we left off in part 1 of this series. If you have not read it, then I recommend that you click here to read part 1 of How to Effectively Manage Your Time.

How to Effectively Manage Your Time: The Sequel Techniques

 

How to Effectively Manage Your TimeHow to Effectively Manage Your Time: Talk With Stakeholders

These are the colleagues, the teams, the managers, perhaps suppliers, perhaps customers, who have a legitimate interest in how you perform at work and who will be affected by the changes that you will be making.

You may also need to arrange discussion with key individuals, before you take the next few steps that follow.

 

How to Effectively Manage Your Time: Listing Your Responsibilities

Separately from the recording activity, you should make time to review your job description, yourself if it is current and up to date, with your line manager if it is in need of a formal review.

The purpose of this is to clarify what your role is and what are your formal responsibilities.

It is often the case that, because of poor time management and the problems that this creates, role and responsibilities are allowed to drift, to the point where the individual is not carrying out the activities that they are meant to.

A clear picture of what the role and responsibilities actually is an essential part of building a strong foundation on which to plan your new approach to managing your time.
How to Effectively Manage Your Time: Listing Your Goals

This is another essential part of building that foundation as a professional, a manager or specialist, you will have corporate level and operational level goals which your activity is meant to contribute to and help achieve.

In parallel, you will have personal work performance and personal development goals that you should be working towards.

Identifying and reviewing these will enable you to clarify them and take them into consideration when you plan the changes that you will be making.

 

How to Effectively Manage Your TimeHow to Effectively Manage Your Time: Eliminating Or Reducing Unnecessary Activities

With the information that you have collected and considered, it is now time to take some action.

In simple terms this means identifying those activities, events,  and periods of time, that are not contributing to you fulfilling your role and your responsibilities, and not helping you to contribute to the achievement of the corporate and operational goals nor your own personal goals.

In your action plans, and your daily, weekly, monthly, lists (that we discuss below) you can then ensure that you do not continue wasting time and effort on any of these negative, unproductive, activities.

How to Effectively Manage Your Time: Prioritizing Activities

You may need to talk with your team, and-or with your line manager, possibly with internal or external suppliers and customers, to clarify and confirm what your priorities should be.

This could be an opportunity to discuss how you could delegate some tasks to others, perhaps simply because you should not be doing them in the first place, perhaps as a developmental activity to help a team member learn new skills.

The aim is to have a clear picture of which are the high, medium, and low priority tasks and events. You can then allocate an appropriate time of day, week, or month, to work on these, and an appropriate time period that ensures that you will be able to complete these successfully.

How to Effectively Manage Your TimeHow to Effectively Manage Your Time: Preparing Action Lists

Sometimes called To Do lists. This is a relatively simple activity, where you look at the tasks and events of the coming day, week, and month, and list the activities that you intend to carry out, and when and for how long you will work on them.

You will, of course, need to continually check that these activities match up with your role, responsibilities, and goals.

How to Effectively Manage Your Time: You Are Almost There
