Managing Yourself

July 8, 2010

Management of others is one thing. Management of yourself is another.

Lately, Waters & I both have had a lot of extra stuff to manage. More work hours, project and event deadlines, to mention a few! Just so you know we’re still here… July 16th is the break point for me. Not sure how soon Waters hands won’t be as overloaded!

I think I’m going to delve more into this topic at a later date but I want to share this thought: Mike Bickle,  who is an awesome teacher, spoke about the Power of a Focused Life. He said that we cannot manage time, we can only manage ourselves in time.

That changed my perspective and put the ownership on me to make the most of my days to get where I want to be. All that to say, Waters & I are learning how to manage ourselves in time. It’s been a challenge to keep up with everything we want to put our hands to!

What about you? How do you manage yourself? Daytimer? Google Calendar? Sticky notes? Pen scribbles on your hand? Any way you do it, it’s a valuable skill to master. One I look forward to saying I’m an expert at!
