Much may be done in those little shreds and patches of time which every day produces, and which most men throw away. Charles Caleb Colton, 1780- 1839 유흥알바.
That great quote from the famous English writer, Charles Colton, sums up the lives of most working Americans today. People think they have no time for anything constructive to do after working all day, shopping, working out at the gym, and cleaning their house/apartment day after day. People throw away any precious time that might actually have on watching TV shows and movies that have nothing to offer the viewer except mindless entertainment. Americans should use their “little patches of time” he alludes to in that quote to get their life goals met in an immediate fashion. Here are seven of the best ways to not only manage your time to produce better results in reaching the goals in your life, but they also show you how you can double your energy and free up at least 50% MORE hours in your life to achieve everything you’ve always wanted to accomplish on a daily basis.
1. If it’s unnecessary, get rid if it! The people in this world who continue to procrastinate over matters like getting a better job or buying a better car are usually the ones who have a pile of useless magazines and books in their living room that are just taking up space. They just leave them there collecting dust and mold, along with the myriad other items they have in their homes like shampoos they’ve used once, broken furniture and computer equipment that have proven useless, and clothes they never wear. These people are usually called “pack rats”, and if you really want to be successful in life don’t ever become one. Unnecessary items are a huge waste of time and energy on your day-to-day life, but few people see it that way. Let’s say you have a magazine subscription and you spend 2 days reading it, then throw it on the other pile of magazines. Those two days probably constitute 8 hours you could have used to research better employment opportunities at “Monster.com”, or you could have gone out looking for a great deal on a used car, and gotten rid of your huge, gas-guzzling SUV that is broken down in the shop most of the time. That SUV is costing you more than just money. The time it takes to find a good repair shop, and the many hours you waste waiting for it to get repaired add up to 2-3 weeks of your time wasted on a yearly basis. The useless books that you sometimes read also throws away your precious time. If you spend 5 hours a month reading a Judith Krantz novel you have laying around, that adds up to 60 hours a year you could be doing something more productive. Every minute of the day that is wasted on items you have around the house builds up into hours of your life that you will never get back. Now that you have a better understanding of the time management lesson I am stating here, go to that pile of magazines/books and throw away everything you never really intend to read. Believe me, you’ll never miss ’em! Weekly number of productive hours gained by using this step: 6
2. Your life must be balanced. The problem with people who are called “work-alholics” is not that they’re not getting their work done, their main problem is they will eventually burn out from the “all work and no play” rule. On the other end, you have people who party all the time and never set any real goals. They fail because they will run out of money, or become strung out on drugs and overdose, or even become homeless in the worst case scenario. You might be in the “work-alholic” category if you have a feeling that you’re missing out on all the fun other people are having. So put aside one day a week to take in a movie, go to a new night club, or see a concert of a band you really love. As long as you are meeting your self-employment or regular employment goals, then you are on the right path career-wise anyway. Having a really fun time one day of the week always insures against the burnout factor that is so prevalent in high-pressure jobs like air traffic controller, police officer, office manager and other stressful positions. If you start a habit that you can adapt to enrich your life, by all means do it. And that includes treating yourself to life’s pleasures on a continual basis. On the other hand, if you are feeling right now that you are about to go bankrupt, or you feel overwhelmed by the bills that are piling up because of your care-free lifestyle, you really need to manage more time to get to the income level that you need. Instead of going out to the bar and hanging with your friends every Friday night, you should instead be hitting the internet for self-employment ideas, or looking at job sites to find a part-time job that you would actually enjoy, like bartender or game tester at a video game company. Always look for balancing your weekly schedule to include both productive, hard-working hours and fun care-free hours and you will actually free up at least 5 hours a week of more productive time.
