Time management is basically about being focused. The Pareto Principle also known as the ’80:20 Rule’ states that 80% of efforts that are not time managed or unfocused generates only 20% of the desired output. However, 80% of the desired output can be generated using only 20% of a well time managed effort. Although the ratio ’80:20′ is only arbitrary, it is used to put emphasis on how much is lost or how much can be gained with time management.

Some people view time management as a list of rules that involves scheduling of appointments, goal settings, thorough planning, creating things to do lists and prioritizing. These are the core basics of time management that should be understood to develop an efficient personal time management skill. These basic skills can be fine tuned further to include the finer points of each skill that can give you that extra reserve to make the results you desire.

But there is more skills involved in time management than the core basics. Skills such as decision making, inherent abilities such as emotional intelligence and critical thinking are also essential to your personal growth.

Personal time management involves everything you do. No matter how big and no matter how small, everything counts. Each new knowledge you acquire, each new advice you consider, each new skill you develop should be taken into consideration.

Having a balanced life-style should be the key result in having personal time management. This is the main aspect that many practitioners of personal time management fail to grasp.

Time management is about getting results, not about being busy.

The six areas that personal time management seeks to improve in anyone’s life are physical, intellectual, social, career, emotional and spiritual.

The physical aspect involves having a healthy body, less stress and fatigue.

The intellectual aspect involves learning and other mental growth activities.

The social aspect involves developing personal or intimate relations and being an active contributor to society.

The career aspect involves school and work.

The emotional aspect involves appropriate feelings and desires and manifesting them.

The spiritual aspect involves a personal quest for meaning.

Thoroughly planning and having a set of things to do list for each of the key areas may not be very practical, but determining which area in your life is not being giving enough attention is part of time management. Each area creates the whole you, if you are ignoring one area then you are ignoring an important part of yourself.

Personal time management should not be so daunting a task. It is a very sensible and reasonable approach in solving problems big or small.

A great way of learning time management and improving your personal life is to follow several basic activities.

One of them is to review your goals whether it be immediate or long-term goals often.

A way to do this is to keep a list that is always accessible to you.

Always determine which task is necessary or not necessary in achieving your goals and which activities are helping you maintain a balanced life style.

Each and everyone of us has a peek time and a time when we slow down, these are our natural cycles. We should be able to tell when to do the difficult tasks when we are the sharpest.

Learning to say “No”. You actually see this advice often. Heed it even if it involves saying the word to family or friends.

Pat yourself at the back or just reward yourself in any manner for an effective time management result.

Try and get the cooperation from people around you who are actually benefiting from your efforts of time management.

Don’t procrastinate. Attend to necessary things immediately.

Have a positive attitude and set yourself up for success. But be realistic in your approach in achieving your goals.

Have a record or journal of all your activities. This will help you get things in their proper perspective.

These are the few steps you initially take in becoming a well rounded individual.

As the say personal time management is the art and science of building a better life.

From the moment you integrate into your life time management skills, you have opened several options that can provide a broad spectrum of solutions to your personal growth. It also creates more doors for opportunities to knock on.

“You’re beautiful… I can’t keep my eyes off of you, I’ve never felt this way before, you’re so sexy, I think I’m falling in love with you… ” Oh, those sexy lovin’ lies we love to hear from someone we may have known only a few short hours. We allow ourselves to be mesmerized by the words we have longed to hear; and so we close our eyes and fantasize.Picture 879

Our most basic human need of feeling loved, desired and welcomed is fulfilled when we allow those words, even if spoken by a stranger, to caress our imagination. We imagine that this time maybe we will find a lasting and loving partner to share our dreams with. The desire fueled by those words is the hope of genuinely being loved by another. There is no greater ignition to our imagination.

It begins with something as simple as liking their looks or loving their smile, a few sideways glances that lets you know they have also noticed you. It is all that is required to inspire our creative mind to paint a picture of all that we have been longing for in your mind. Like the master painter, you see the image you are seeking to create long before the last stroke of the brush on the canvas. You see it, and you believe it. The dance of desire begins with the first touch, the words; the lies. They may even tell you it’s only for a night, but you have already painted the picture in your mind and imagine it may be for a lifetime.

Hope is a constant companion in our search to find a loving partner in our lives. It is essential to our ability to believe in our dreams. Faith is the foundation; hope fuels the creation. Like pots of paint, it colors the canvas completing masterpiece of fulfillment in our search to be complete. So easy it is to look beyond what was surely an indicator that this was not all that we imagined, but rather a faded imitation that our imagination completes to sharpen the image before us.

Why do we do it? Why do we want to believe in something or someone so much that we color the lines that began skipping right before our eyes, ignoring the obvious signs that we are mostly alone in our dream? Our mind plays those lovin’ lies over and over, encouraging us to believe in what it has created; to look away from the obvious. And so we close our eyes cling tightly to what we imagine is real.

We love those sexy lovin lies; they are necessary to keep the picture in our minds vibrant and alive. We have become the master painter, the creator of what we hope will be. The danger in this is that we also remove the opportunity for real and lasting love to arrive, the kind that allows the image to be painted together; maybe for a lifetime. Just imagine!
