Selfish time management
Selfish time management offers you many positive benefits and reasons to practice selfish time management skills. These reasons (and benefits) do not just apply to business. Selfish time management also applies to family relationships and friendships, working with others in volunteer activities, and interacting with service providers such as doctors, hair stylists, etc. You aspire to improve your time management skills primarily to get more done and feel more productive. Let’s look at the other reasons and benefits to learn selfish time management.
Improve, maintain good health
Without good health little else matters and so anything that we can do to improve and maintain our good health is worth practicing. That includes selfish time management, which results in less stress and worry. We know that high levels of stress over long periods of time contribute to poor sleep. When you use effective time management skills that will result in reducing stress and worry and therefore, enable you to sleep better. As your Time Management Coach and Professional Organizer I encourage you to be mindful of using these time management skills:
- Planning ahead of deadlines.
- Allocating sufficient time for all aspects of tasks and projects.
- Maintaining work-life balance.
Selfish time management means allowing yourself to take breaks, make time for eating healthy meals, and getting exercise. All of those activities contribute to your well being and overall satisfaction. Improving and maintain good health through time management will ensure greater productivity as you will see next.
Time management and productivity are important to us and those we live and interact with. Whatever your current status…self employed, raising a family or retired, your contributions and ability to get things done is important. Selfish time management means not taking on more than you are able to or want to. It includes establishing healthy boundaries, sharing the workload, setting realistic goals and deadlines, and delegating tasks to others in your family or workplace. Selfish time management skills allow you to:
- Enjoy benefits of collaboration.
- Empower and reward others.
- Develop your leadership skills.
- Individual and organizational benefits; build capacity.
Selfish time management allows you to be a more positive role model for others. Do you sometimes worry that saying “no” to someone will create a problem? If you can find the right way and reasons to say no, then it’s more likely that the other person will understand and have respect for your boundaries. It may even allow them to use that skill in the future. Conversely, when you allow time to say “yes” you help to establish a more dependable relationship with the other person. You want people to know when they can depend on you. Selfish time management such as delegating to others shows that you have confidence in their capabilities. This allows others to feel more included and appreciated
Selfish time management skills
Work out the main areas of your life such as: self care, relationships, finances, career and household. Then find the skills that will support addressing each of these areas:
- Scheduling, time estimation
- Purging tasks and activities that you don’t need or want to do
- Delegating activities that others can and want to do
