No, not in this post at least. Later down the road we’ll explore some awesome time management apps. Today tho we want to learn about how you use your time. Are you spending 10 hours a day playing World of Warcraft or binging on Netflix? Do you spend 2 hours a day stopping what you’re doing to check email? How would you ever even know?
TRACK YOUR TIME.
Go ahead and print that off and highlight it so you don’t forget. This is likely the most important thing you can do. Why bother doing it tho? It’s not going to fix the problem you have. But what it does do is give you some lovely data to analyze and break down. How much time each day are spending doing each activity. Graph this and take a look. No need to break out excel and get something fancy, although if you’re into that don’t let us hold you back. This is just going to serve as a way to see where you’re spending your time. Are you playing 5 hours of video games a day and then complaining that you have no time to have a social life or pay your bills?
Now you fix it. We’ll talk about that in another post tho. For now, see what you can figure out for yourself. See where you can make improvements and do it. Don’t wait around for a little blue police box to sweep you away and solve your problems for you.
