“Time management isn’t the main thing. It’s the only thing.” - Miles Davis
Sometimes I really wonder why time management is made into such a huge deal in the general public. I know this is going to be a hot take but… time management is not that hard. Alright, I’ll hedge and say that I may not be the best person to make that comment but I still think it’s true.
My favorite thing on the planet might be time management because it leads you down a path of living more intentionally. The more control you have over your time the easier life becomes and from what I’ve noticed a failure to control your time is mostly self-inflicted.
There is a constant trend I’ve noticed in my own life that makes me see the difference between good and poor time management. The inability to focus and take the “micro discretionary” time during your day to actually get things done is huge. There are small shallow tasks you could be doing any time you get distracted during your work day or outside of it and most people underestimate the value of that time.
If instead of every time you got distracted by scrolling on social media during the day you went and cleaned the dishes, wiped down the counters, or wrote out a newsletter like this you would save 5-10 hours a week of your time. If you think I’m exaggerating then take a good hard look at your screen time on your phone and tell me you don’t spend at least 10 hours on useless things on your phone every week.
Once again I’ll say it… time management isn’t that hard when you put it like that. But actually doing things rather than being distracted isn’t as easy as it sounds. The time management part isn’t hard from a practical standpoint it’s the discipline required that makes it hard. Stick to your guns and make it easier on yourself that’s all you can do.
Have an awesome week!
