Have You ever felt that You wanted more hours in a day? If so, this article is for You.
The only reason for time is so that everything doesn’t happen at once. — Albert Einstein
Everyone has the same amount of hours- 168 h/week
First, no matter how much You want the days to have 26 or 28 hours instead of 24, it will not happen when it comes to the number of hours. One of few “fair” deals in life, no matter who we are, is the 24 hours we get each day.’
Though there are ways how to manage the hours we have in a time-effective way, and that will make us “feel” that we have the extra hours we want and “need.” This is called Time management!
Time management is not just important for You in your business, but in your everyday life as well. Remember, EVERYBODY IS GIVEN THE SAME 24 HOURS – How you use it is up to you! You have probably heard someone saying, “Time is money,” and that is true, in another way, time and money are far away from each other. Money You can save for later or get new ones. Time, You cannot save for later, and any “wasted” time is gone – forever! So, make every second count.
Why Time Management?
16 years ago, when Lotta decided to retire from her employee profession to be her own boss and employee full time, she did not actively think about time management. Her schedule was more than full of a 100% profession as a teacher, studying and writing her master’s degree 50%, consulting people about health in the evenings, and with a family at home. Before Lotta took this decision, she had her home-based business parallel for 5 months. At that time, she did not think about when to do it; it was only one more thing that she put into the calendar when there was some space.
Where to start?
When she then “only” had her own business, what happened? Lotta got paralyzed and didn´t know what to do or where to start. Suddenly she had an “empty” calendar to fill up. Going from employee and knowing exactly what to do to being your boss and employee working from home can be a challenge for many of us in the beginning. Suddenly You see that there are things at home that You “should” fix and bang, the hours have run away, and the day is over, and You haven´t done the things that Your business needed You to do.
In this article, Lotta shares her tips on the most simple things that can make a huge difference for Your business. It is most often the easy things we tend not to do because we believe they will make no difference. Though they will!
Never leave ’till tomorrow which You can do today— Benjamin Franklin
