Time Management

How often do we use these words or phrases?
- Can you believe how time flies?
- I wish I had a 25 hour day.
- Father time...
- The sands of time...

And they all indicate the same thing. No matter who, how rich or important we are, we all have the same amount of time in a day.  “If I had six hours to chop down a tree, I would spend the first four sharpening the axe.” – Abraham LincolnSo we are all faced with the same dilemma - how to use our time wisely.

I found this article "8 Tips for Effective Time Management" extremely insightful. If I can just apply half of it I will be such a happy person. lol

1. Know your goals.
2. Prioritize wisely.
- Important and urgent.
- Important but not urgent.
- Urgent but not important.
- Not urgent and not important.
3. Just say no.
4. Plan ahead.
5. Eliminate distractions.
- Your smartphone is extremely useful, but it’s also addictive and among the most insidious time-wasters known to mankind.
6. Delegate more often.
7. Watch what you spend.
- How many productive minutes are you packing in each week? 
8. Take care of yourself.
- Be sure to get plenty of sleep and exercise. An alert mind is a high-functioning mind and one that’s less tolerant of time-wasting activities.

 So I guess the following statement applies to me “You don’t need more time… You just need to decide.” – Seth Godin. Please add your comments below and let us know about your time related challenges and how you cope with it.

Have a super week and happy stitching.
