Where Are You Spending Your Time?
Here’s a great tool for auditing your time and setting time boundaries.
Today let’s talk about time—more specifically, the tricky art of time management. How often do you find yourself wondering where in the world your day went or how other people are able to accomplish so much more with the same 1,440 minutes? Wonder no longer; after learning about an interesting concept called ‘time management quadrants,’ you’ll feel more equipped than ever before to conquer each day effectively.
Cited below for your convenience are timestamps that will direct you to various points in the video. Feel free to watch the full message or use these timestamps to skip to topics that interest you most:
1:40 —The first and second quadrants: Necessity and growth
2:30 — The quadrant of deception: Mistaking others’ sense of urgency for your own
4:00 — The quadrant of waste: Social media (without business intent), sports, daily news, etc.
5:00 — What activities belong in the quadrant of growth?
6:05 — Which quadrant would lead generation fall into?
7:00 — If you’ve floated into the quadrant of waste, what should you do?
7:40 — How do you stop spending so much time in the quadrant of deception?
9:14 — Wrapping up today’s video
Once you figure out where you’re spending most of your daily time, you’ll likely uncover production that you didn’t even think was possible. Hopefully you found value in this video. If you have questions or comments about this or any other growth-related topic, don’t hesitate to reach out. We’d love to hear from you.
So appreciate the insight and sharing in a simple to follow way these quadrants. This road map is going into the very front of my planner for daily visual – commitment will be that I use this FIRST before starting my day.
