Personal time management starts with you. It starts with your thinking through what is really important to you in life. And it only makes sense if you manage it around specific things that you want to achieve. You need to set goals in three major areas of your life.
Family and personal goals
Business and career goals
Personal development goals
For family, you get up in the morning, you work hard and upgrade your skills and worry about money and sometimes feel frustrated by demands on your time. Your family and personal goals could be a bigger house, a better car, a larger television set, a vacation, higher quality relationship with your spouse and children, spend more time with family etc. Achieving these family and personal goals are the actual essence of time management, and its major purpose.
The next area of goals is your business and career goals. These are the how goals, the means by which you get your personal, why goals. How can you get the level of income that will enable you to fulfill your family goals? How can you build up the skills and abilities to stay ahead of the curve in your career? Business and career goals are absolutely necessary, especially when balanced with family and personal goals.
The next area of goals is your personal development goals. Remember, you cant get much more on the outside than what you have achieved on the inside. Your outer life will be a mirror image of your inner life. If you wish to get worthwhile things in your personal life and your career life, you must become a worthwhile person in your own self-development. You must fabricate yourself if you want to build your life.
Perhaps the biggest secret of success is that you can become anything you really want to become to get any goal that you really want to accomplish. But in order to do it, you must go to effort on yourself and never stop. Once you have a list of your personal and family goals, your business and career goals, and your personal development goals, you can then organize the list by priority. This brings to understand the difference between priorities and posteriorities.
In order to manage your personal time, you must choose very clearly upon your priorities. You must decide on the most important things that you could possible be doing to give yourself the similar amount of happiness, pleasure, satisfaction and joy in life.
