Most time management books and programs focus on the outer elements of time management, but in practice, you’d notice that your commitment and interest fizzles out with time.
1. Dream: I personally see no intelligence in trying to manage my time without a really sound reason to do so. Without purpose, action is nothing. If you’re someone else’s asset (you have a regular job and no entrepreneurial interests), managing your time can be rocket science, since you’d most likely lack the primary requirement for success – which is motivation. Nonetheless, when you gain vision, drive comes… then manifestation follows. “What one thing would you dear to dream of if you knew you wouldn’t fail?” is one of Brian Tracy’s key questions for helping people unveil their dreams. That’s a multi-million dollar question that’s made paupers prosperous today. If you can do this step successfully, every other step becomes a lot easier to do. Without a dream, living is boring and boredom kills faster than any other disease.
2. Plan: Robert T. Kiyosaki says in Rich Dad’s Retire Young, Retire Rich “A plan is a bridge to your dreams”. He continues, “Your future is what you do today regardless of your dreams”. You can dream the world – and you should dream the world… the larger the merrier – but if all you do is sit and dream, your life will be a nightmare. A plan enables you give expression to your dreams. Without a plan, your dream is a whole big joke!
3. Get some Education: I wouldn’t take too much time explaining this. But in one simple statement, the amount of knowledge you have and can apply to your life in regards, any idea, plan, or purpose may be placed in the mind through repetition of thought. ~Napoleon Hill. All the best and have a nice day.
