Motivational Power Quote


The Art of Successful Time Management     

“The key to successful time management is doing the most important task first, and giving it your full concentration, to the exclusion of everything else.”

R.   Alec  MacKenzie, time management expect


As I see it . . . . . . .

The Art of Successful time management


Successful time management is the art of knowing what to do, how to do it, when to do it and why to do it.


Two additional key components successful time management are; knowing what’s not important and what should be either be not done or to be left undone. This area can become one of the biggest time wasters; that leads to very little progress and contributes very little to your future success.


One of the most important components of successful time management is to understand the things that are important and to focus on doing what’s important. 


When you focus on the things that are most important you are focusing your time on the things that will have a positive impact and get you closer to your goals.


Doing what’s important makes the best use of your time and has the greatest impact on your career.


The art of successful time management is understanding what’s most important and focusing your activities in those areas.

Lou, Time management is something that many people struggle with. I've seen people my age that have some difficulties with it. Once they get a handle on it, it's amazing how much one can get accomplished when staying focused and on task.

I believe to this day that one of the skills of successful business people is the ability to and prioritize what needs to be done next and compartmentalize those tasks that can wait. Great post!
