If you ask just about anyone they will all say that they want to achieve more success in their life yet very few actually ever obtain the results they are looking for. Yet with all of the resources now available at ones fingertips, why is it so difficult for people to accomplish their goals?
One common reason is that very few understand how to manage their time effectively. We all have the same amount of time in a given day which is roughly about twelve good hours when you take into account sleeping, eating, going to the bathroom, and other maintenance type of things we do all day.
So why do so many people struggle with time management? In a recent post from lifehack.com it stated that because “Unsuccessful people don’t value their time. They are everywhere, anywhere, anytime because they lack the ability to dedicate their time towards their goals. And year after year they make new promises which never come to fruition simply because they couldn’t be bothered to put in the time required towards their goals. Time management skills, learning how to say no and knowing what commitments to undertake, is a step towards great success in any area of our lives.”
This is where having a life coach can be very helpful. One of the main objectives of any good coach is that they will have you keep a journal of how you spend your time on a daily basis and then help you examine and optimize it. By going through an audit of how you go about your day will have a great impact on your ability to make adjustments so that you can improve the output of your day.
Brian Tracy one of the leading coaches and mentors states this….”The key to reaching high levels of time management, performance, and productivity is to develop the lifelong habit of tackling your major task first thing each morning.
You must develop the routine of “eating your frog” before you do anything else and without taking too much time to think about it.
Successful, effective people are those who launch directly into their major tasks and then discipline themselves to work steadily and single-mindedly until those tasks are complete.”
When working with a life coach, they will help you stay motivated and disciplined so that you get these things done. Many people who struggle with this do so because they have not made it a regular habit yet which is why seeking outside assistance can be very beneficial.
If you truly want to achieve more success, then you are going to need to invest in yourself and find a coach or mentor who can point you in the right direction.
