Daily Charge: Time Blocking, Priorities, and What You Can Do To Improve NowMay 26, 2020
I hope you make today ridiculously productive!
Because of the conversations we had last week with people in our coaching programs, your daily charges this week are going to revolve around the concept of "time management".
And, yes, I do use the word concept intentionally because of how often it's mis-used and abused in business. In fact, what we typically hear, and where we will start, is "I just need to put it on my schedule, block it out, and I'll get it done."
So, let's tackle this idea of "time blocking" and shed some light on what truly needs to happen in order for time blocking to work for you.
3 IDEAS FROM ME
You become great at time blocking only when you become great at planning and prioritization.
Time blocking is a performance tool... nothing more, nothing less.
It only works when there is:
- A meaningful strategic and tactical plan.
- An understanding of priorities within that plan.
- A high-level of urgency and necessity.
Set intent and purpose with every time block you establish.
2 QUOTES FROM OTHER THOUGHT LEADERS
"He who every morning plans the transactions of that day and follows that plan carries a thread that will guide him through the labyrinth of the most busy life."
Lack of direction, not lack of time, is the problem. We all have twenty-four hour days."
1 QUESTION FOR YOU (and your daily charge)
What does your schedule say about your priorities and your plan?
I challenge you to stop. Right now, stop what you are doing and assess the rest of your schedule today. Re-negotiate your time and allocate the majority of what you have to the priorities inside of your plan. Now, go execute.
