What Does Time Mean To You?

I’m Sharon Michaels and I’ve coached with women in business for over twenty-five years and there is one area of professional development that seems to be a thorn in the side of many women – TIME MANAGEMENT.

The main thing I’ve discovered is that time management is as much a mindset as it is a way of using time effectively. I’ve also learned that you can’t manage time if you haven’t defined what the concept of “time” means to you.

Here’s a million dollar question: What does having enough “time” mean to you?

I’d like you to seriously think about that question because your answer is vital to being able to successfully manage, balance and enjoy your time.

I’m asking you to take out paper and pen and think carefully about the answers to the following questions. You can use these answers to help get a clearer picture of what having enough time means:

1. When you think about having “enough time,” what does that look like?

2. How well do you currently manage your time?

3.
When you have somewhere to be at a certain time, are you most often
a. early
b. just on time
c. late?

4. Do you find yourself waiting until the last minute to get ready (getting papers or other items together) for a business meeting?

5. If you are stressed about “time,” are you willing to look for solutions that may help alleviate your stress?

6. If you had to place a monetary figure on how much per hour your time is worth, what would that figure be?

7. What would you say is the biggest challenge you currently have to effectively managing your time?

8. Do you believe you waste time? If yes, how specifically do you waste it?

9. Which areas of time management do you feel you excel?

10. How would better managing your time benefit your business?

Did this unscientific quiz help you learn a little more about how you are currently using your time and what having enough “time” means to you? The really good news is that you can begin changing your time management habits one small step at a time – start small and make changes that will work with your lifestyle.

Here’s my suggestion: Use the answers to these quiz questions to begin pinpointing where you’d like to improve your time management skills. Take a look at your day-to-day work schedule and decide what isn’t working as well as you would like it to and then, find and implement workable solutions for those problem areas. Time management is a skill you can learn and master if you work it hour-by-hour and day-by-day.
