Listening to a great podcast here about Time Management, I got this sentence:
– How do you balance work and family?? You don’t balance it, you go home! There is no ‘more time’: it’s just using your time more effectively –
1. – How do you balance work and family?? You don’t balance it, you go home!-
GREAT!!!! Our life is like a house with three rooms: yourself, your family, your job. If these three rooms are not roughly of the same size, you are in trouble.
If you are not in a good physical shape, you’ll never be a good (as a man) father / husband / boss / colleague: you’ll be limited in what you CAN do.
If you don’t have love in your life, you’ll never find your balance and you’ll never be able to appreciate anything.
2. – There is no ‘more time’: it’s just using your time more effectively –
Time is a scarce resource and is unmanageable: you cannot compress it, you cannot go forward or backward, you cannot speed it up or slow down.
So the term ‘time management’ is a bit misleading: you don’t manage time you manage what you do in a fixed amount of time. Time management is about priorities: it’s about being more effective in the time God has given us. So it’s not a matter of doing more, it’s a matter of doing the most important things.
As Mark and Mike say in the same podcast: as a manager you are not payed to get MORE, you are payed to get BETTER begin more effective in the time you have.
