Time Management and Goal Setting

One of the key factors that makes a massive difference in the effectiveness of any time management system is the outcomes that are generated as the result of implementing a it. So if you implement a time management system that allows you to get 400% more done in the same time, but the things you are getting done are not leading you in a clear direction, then you are still wasting your time.

There is no point in getting four times as much done if it is not getting an effective benefit, you might as well stay home and enjoy time with your family. So this is where the first step in any time management system really must include a clearly defined outcome – a goal.

Goal setting is something that most people fail to do at all and most of those that do some goal setting fail to do it effectively. It is not uncommon to set goals in your work or finances, or your weight or fitness, but how many people set goals in their relationships, their spiritual practices and their personal development. These are all areas that lead to a full and rounded life and build a life worth living.

Here are some areas of your life that you should consider setting goals in:

  • Work/Career/Business
  • Finances
  • Health/fitness
  • Family/relationships
  • Friends/entertainment
  • Personal development
  • Spiritual life

You may have other areas of your life that are part of your rounded life.

So goal setting is not just about taking your career and health forward, it is about every aspect of your life and once you know what you are aiming for, you then can use time management techniques to drive your life forward more effectively than you could imagine.

No matter what you are trying to do more of with time management, an effective goal setting system is always the first step.

  1. Goal setting and time management are really two different concepts, but they are practically inter-related and inter-twined.
