Do you think time management is overrated?
Yes and then, again, no – it depends on the person and situation
Time management is important, I agree – to some degree. What is that degree?
The degree to which you are experiencing consistent satisfaction and happiness in your life. Beyond that, time management becomes an obssession rather than a tool to get what you want out of your life. So, if you are not satisfied with your life, it’s a clear indication that you need some level of time management in your life.
When Should You Learn Time Management Techniques
If you are always upset, rushed, out of control, missing appointments, missing deadlines and feeling empty despite the fact that your days are jammed with activity, then you need new time management habits. Better habits are a requirement to stop the stress, the madness, the impact you have on others.
However, that being said, there is no “one size fits all”. Humans and life do not operate in neat little boxes – people are all different, each seeing the world quite differently than the person next to them. Each person is unique. To that end, time management tools are just that tools – habits which may help or not. The only person who can know if it works or not is the person trying them out – no matter what the gurus tell you.
What Will It Take
Time and patience. Why? You need to learn different systems from different people and pick something from each one that will solve one of your time management problems until you have developed your own system which works for you.
Sometimes the technique will work and sometimes it won’t. Just keep trying new things until you find what works in your life – believe me, there are many techniques which will work. Incorporate them into a system which works!
How will someone know if a time management technique works or not? Life will get better little by little, stress will diminish and the person will begin to know that they can have a positive effect on their own world.
Are time management habits overrated? It depends whether or not life is feeling good and your dreams are being realized step by step. If you feel unfulfilled, it’s time to get some new habits.
