Time Management – Marko Saravanja

Successful people   are very good with time management. They waste little time. They are fast.   They are decisive. They are focused. They are achievers.

People with serious   time management problems exhibit certain types of behaviour: they tend to   miss deadlines, procrastinate and lack self-discipline. They arrive late for   meetings, talk too much with little substance, and dominate discussions. They   forget things, plan poorly and are not serious about their commitments. They   not only waste their own time, they waste the time of other people — which is   very disrespectful. The root causes of time management problems are of a   psychological nature and resolving them requires serious commitment to   personal change.

Time is money. Time   is power. Time is our most valuable resource — the greatest of all our   possessions. We have limited time in our lives, and when we lose it, we can   never get it back. Time is life: if we master our time, we will master our   lives. We can become successful only when we master the art of time   management. As Peter Drucker said, ‘Until we can manage time, we can manage   nothing else.’

Develop respect for   time. Plan, strategise and prioritise. Be fast, decisive and focused. Be   disciplined, action-oriented and competitive. Be a conqueror, winner and   achiever. Awaken your potential, knowing that the power of time management is   within you.

Know the true value of time; snatch, seize, and enjoy every moment of it. No idlene, no lazine, no procrastination; never put off till tomorrow what you can do today.
— Lord Chesterfield —
