Blog: Make Time For Time Management
What are some things you can do in a small segment of time?

If we use the tools that are shown to us daily we can accomplish so much more in a day.  At your work place and even when you were young, we learned little tips that help us accomplish some of the biggest task.  For instance, here is a scenario, you're preparing for the Turkey Day.  You have a lot of family arriving in a few days. You're the planner and you'll prepare most of the meals.  Now, you have to clean, shop, prepare, etc.  So, how do you do it and how do you begin?  You take it in small segments.  You do a little at a time.  You do some things, one day and others the next.  Well, I want to give those of you that think its not enough time for things to get accomplish, a tool that will help you begin and start to change the way you look at it.  Now, remember the first and the most important things you always must have is the determination to want to do it, always, always first, then wanting to make the time –moving thing around, cancelling things, or whatever. Then, BEGIN to take action, the leap, and the drive to begin the process.  If you have been reading, Time Management is a process.  No, step skipping! One day at a time course. You get better with practice and persistence. Now, here are a few and it doesn't apply to everyone, but it will help some!
10 minutes or less
