The Time Is NOW!

When I was a communications officer for a major bank, managing my time and being organized was crucial for my success since I lived on meeting deadline after deadline. Eventually, I wrote a book on time management, which was published by the American Management Association.

One thing I have learned over my years of study is this: You cannot manage time. No matter how hard you work, no matter how fast you run, you cannot add a single minute to your day.

You cannot add more time to your day. In fact, you don’t need more time; it’s how you use time right NOW, in every moment, that is the difference that makes the difference in how successful you become, how much you achieve, and how much you earn. 

The key to getting things done is what you do with your time. It’s called Productivity Management--a different approach to using your time to get the results you need to succeed.

Start becoming aware of what you are doing in every moment. Are you working toward your most important goals, or are you spending time you can never get back?

Make sure that in each moment that you focus on what’s most important and plan your time to support that. This creates momentum that propels you forward. 

NOW is the time to do what is necessary for success. Not tomorrow, not yesterday, NOW. This moment.
