Hey lovely, you know this saying that goes, “Life happens when you are busy doing other things?”
Lol, what else are you waiting for? That’s all! I just wanted to let you know that post/quote existed and that’s all😅.
By the way, how has your week been going? Good? Bad? Wanna talk about it? Hey, I’m here for you 🤗.
So, I got a call from a friendly friend yesterday, and he gave me very important tips on how to manage my time, breathe/rest, and still get things done.
And because you are most special and important to me, I want to share this with you today. How you can Manage your time,
Scale of Preference
This cannot be over-emphasized enough, I must say. I understand that you are trying to achieve your goals, dreams, and ambitions ASAP, however, doing this thing and losing yourself in the process would do you no good.
Because even the strongest and richest of men sleep.
If you decide to not take this advice, sooner or later you will burn out both mentally and physically.
However, if you do you will be even more productive than you used to be. If you can manage your time.
Below are baby steps you should take to achieve this milestone;
- Get a notebook and a pen
- Write down in order of priority the things you do _I mean the major projects you have going on, like school, your passion, money, etc
- Go through them once again and make sure you are not putting their order wrongly.
Select ONLY the first three projects
- Okay, so this is the part you may not really like. You may find it annoying as you wish you could put all these projects as #numberonepriority however, you can’t!
And this my friend is what the economist calls the Opportunity foregone.
You have to label your projects no matter how important they seem, one will always be more important than the other.
So choose wisely!
For instance, for myself,
B. Writing in General (which includes my blogs, copywriting, poems and more.)
C. Money making through freelancing and network marketing
You can see even with this I still got my plate full. But if I can concentrate on just this three for now and not try to be a “Jack of all trades and master of none” I believe I will be able to get more done than I used to.
But that means I will have to give up my podcast or at least drop an episode in a fortnight or a month than every week and also other skills I want to learn like guitar and piano lessons… and stuff like that. I believe you get the gist 😁.
Focus on JUST those three!
- So, know this, it is one thing to write a great plan or have a fantastic plan for something and it is another thing to follow through with it.
Yeah, I know this because I do this a lot!
And that was the main reason I said this quote at the beginning,
“Life happens when you are busy doing other things.”
Yeah, whether good or bad things. And by this, I mean, you may have planned just to “concentrate” majorly on these three things but sometimes matter arises and then you find yourself drifting away from your initial plan because you are “trying to get rich fast” or just simply doing other things.
It may be hard, especially to let go of other things and just do this one first but remember,
LIFE IS A PROCESS. STEP BY STEP YOU WILL GET THERE, SO BE STRONG AND FOCUS ON WHAT MATTERS MOST FIRST!
With this being said, I wish you a happy and splendid rest of the week ❤😌.
Be happy, smile 😁!
