I’ve spent a lot of time working all over the world in many different roles, so here are 3 game-changing things I’ve learned about time over the years that I think will help you too.
1.You can’t control it
You can’t stop it, pause, or rewind it?
We all have the same 24 hours in a day, and clearly, that’s not something we can change.
BUT what we can control is our use of that time…..and more importantly, we have complete control over how we spend the time we have.
If I choose to spend most of my time on things that move me towards my goals, I know I will achieve them.
After all, we are all the masters of our own destiny – it’s up to us to decide how we choose to spend our precious time.
2.You can’t create it
Time is finite; when it’s gone, it’s gone.
But you can create the illusion of more time. This doesn’t involve magic – it simply involves looking at how you’re spending your time now and working out where you can make changes to give yourself more time within the day.
Cutting down on time we spend doing things that deliver us little benefit can create more time for the things that will help us where we want to go.
Extra time can almost always be found – it’s just that most of us don’t try very hard to find it.
How often do we hear that people don’t have enough time to do the things they want to do……but more often than not, we CAN always find time for the things that matter most to us.
Where and how can you create more time in your day?
3.You can share it
Life isn’t about doing everything on your own – we can share our time by delegating and working as a team.
Many hands do make light work….but the skill is finding the right people to make the work lighter and not heavier.
When we get that right, we can get more done in less time, leaving more time to focus on the high payoff activities and decisions that will have the biggest impact on us.
Making more time for success is just one small part of the transformational programmes within our suite of Business and Leadership solutions specifically aimed at construction industry leaders.
