David NeagleTime Management Is NOT the Problem With You or Your Business. THIS Is.
Guest Blog, David Neagle

One of the things I have struggled with in my business, and that my clients constantly ask for help with, is the elusive “Time Management.” 

We’ve all got the same 24 hours–or 86,400 seconds–to use each day. And as a business owner, your time is money, so each second must be guarded and used carefully. How you utilize your time is a key factor in the success of your business.

What I’ve come to learn (and continually work on practicing and improving) is that it’s more about “Activity Management” than Time Management.

A recent blog post from one of my mentors & coaches, David Neagle, is a perfect mindset shift to share with you as you prepare for a “clean slate” and achieving more in your business this year (and beyond).

Question: How do you find the time to do everything that needs to be done to actually make more money?

Answer: I learned a long time ago that we can’t manage time…we must manage activities.

You see, work will always fill the time you allot for it. This is why one of the first things I teach my VIP Clients is the fine art of calendaring.

Let me explain… as entrepreneurs, there are so many things that can bombard us on a daily basis. Whether it’s making sales calls, handling client satisfaction, fulfilling orders or programs, marketing planning or dealing with our personal lives, there is ALWAYS something to fill our time.

One of the key strategies to ensuring money-making activities get done is to schedule those activities every day, and STICK TO YOUR SCHEDULE.

Start with calendaring the “non-negotiable” items first. These items can be up-coming travel, presentations, and other activities that are firm.

Next, schedule all your money-making activities. These should include sales calls, strategy and launches.

From there schedule everything else.

In doing this you may even come to see that you actually have more time than you need or you may see opportunities to hire people to help you with the things you do not specifically need to be doing.

Once you have your schedule in place, you must discipline yourself to stick to it!

Sometimes this is the most difficult step, and if you find yourself straying from your calendar, take a moment to re-align yourself and course correct.
