In life, many of times you may have been frequently pulled or interrupted in different directions towards achieving anything. It means you wanted to do something but it never happened because of any distraction or the right time. Put simply, this happens daily. Right? It means whatever you’ve learn about managing time is a complete waste because it didn’t work. Before you start to learn how to manage time, you must learn what time is.
In world, there are two types of times, one is clock time and the other is real time. Clock time is irrelevant. We don’t live in clock time rather we live in a real time which is mental, running between our head. If it is in our head, it is possible to create it, manage it or we do have a full control over it. This is the time which flies or drags depending on what you are doing.
Generally, you are surrounded by self-sabotage and self-limitation of ‘not having enough time’ or today not being the ‘perfect time’ to start anything. Thoughts, conversations and actions – these are the only three ways to spend time. Regardless of what work you do or own, your work will be integrated with these three items. Here is some time management tips that could help you avoid distractions and achieve your goal without losing much of your energy. Take a look:
