Fourth Skill: Time Management

 We are going to have access to a lot of time and money and so need to learn to manage both properly; we don’t want to waste either one of these resources. Today we shall talk about time management and tomorrow we will tackle money. 

 

It’s important that we learn to manage the 24 hours in our day, regardless of how busy we feel we are right now. To start, think how you spend your time right now. On a sheet of paper, write keep track of how you spend your time. Is it productive? 

 

At the end of the day, how do you feel? Are you exhausted and have the feeling like you didn’t accomplish all you set out to do, so you go to bed stressed out? Do you spend mindless time in front of the T.V or drinking beer, wine or cocktails not wanting to think about anything anymore? 

 

Or do you feel invigorated and peaceful? Is time in front of the T.V simply a fun relaxing time with your family instead of just a mindless time waster? 

 

I’m not here to judge you in any way. I just want you to start thinking about how exactly it is you are spending your time right now so that you can make some changes if you feel that you want your life to be headed in a better direction.

 

Many times we feel our day with “good” activities, but we neglect time taking care of ourselves physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. This is also not a good use of our time. We need to keep all activities in balance. We need to learn to make time to take care of ourselves so we can have strong bodies and minds even at regardless of how old we are. 

 

Time management is an important skill to learn before we reach Royal Crown Diamond because we want to show others how being a part of this company enhances our life; how building a business in this way, partnering with Young Living, can be very peaceful and exciting, not extremely stressful. Nobody wants more stress in their life, right? I sure would not be inclined to build a business if I feel it’s an “added chore” to what I see as an already busy life. That is why we need to exemplify time management so others can see how PEACEFUL AND JOYFUL it is to walk the path to Royal Crown Diamond. 

 

 Take time to watch this motivational video right now: https://youtu.be/mV0IhcAUNqk It is called “Stop Killing Time”. Jim Rohn, Tony Robbins, and Les Brown are brought together with some awesome nuggets for us to think about in this 12-minute video, so take the time to watch it and ponder what they say. Mull it over throughout the day, and the next few days. “The way we spend our 24 hours will determine how we live.” 

 

To end this topic, I’d like to recommend a book that Dale Carnegie suggests in one of his books, which I am currently reading. He says, “if you are very busy and pushed for time, read Arnold Bennett’s “How to Live on Twenty-four Hours a Day”. I looked it up on Amazon and you get actually get it Prime for less than $4. What a deal! Here is the link to check it out and, if you currently struggle with time management, make sure you purchase it: How-Live-Twenty-Four-Hours-Day

 

Let’s learn to manage our time properly BEFORE we are given more of it. Tomorrow, we will touch the topic of MONEY MANAGEMENT, so stay tuned.
