I mentioned in my post from last week the importance of keeping a time budget. This post will break down why time budgets are important and how to do that. The essence of a time budget is deciding what’s important to you. We only have 168 hour in a week, 24 hours in a day. And once time is gone, it’s gone. So how will you choose to spend it? The more successful you are, the more people want to be around you … and want things from you. If you’re being asked to speak or consult, people want your ideas, your time. But it’s also important to make time for certain things you enjoy. Because doing things within your outside interests will make you better at what you do too. We just can’t let those things get out of control. So, how do you decide how much time you want to allot for different priorities? You have to start by defining your priorities. Different categories can include:
- Personal growth
- Fun activities
1. Go to the Time Budget Template
