Stop Trying to Manage Your Time and Start Prioritizing

Stop Trying to Manage Your Time and Start Prioritizing

I have been writing a book, running a business, and working with my wife to keep our 4 kids alive, fed, and thriving (or at least surviving). If this isn’t a situation that calls for making the best use of your time, I don’t know what is. These time demands have reinforced for me that it’s hard to “manage” time in the traditional sense. Time is an inexorable force. Easier to manage and discipline yourself to take the best advantage of time.

While prioritization is not exactly a new idea, I have a challenge for you. Before the end of the day today, figure out the single most important thing you must complete tomorrow. Tomorrow, first thing, work on that number one priority and don’t stop until it is complete.

I have found that if I take this approach, I will not get everything done (because that is impossible), but I will end each day with the confidence and peace that I have completed (or at least made progress on) the most important things on my agenda. I have a hunger to bring important things to completion, “move the ball forward,” make meaningful progress, and control my work rather than allow it to control me. If prioritizing and then executing on my priorities can help me to get there, I am all for it.
