About Time Management

I couldn’t put this all together in a post due to its length! So now it’s an article!

What it is;

To organize and plan your time so you can meet a goal or deadline. It is the skill that allows you to divide your time between tasks and activities in a well thought out approach with the best possible outcome!

It isn’t easy as things pile up and you are under pressure.But it can be learned and make things better.  It is an acquired skill that shows your ability to problem solve, plan strategically, delegate and organize.

Some useful tips to apply:

  • Make short notes of what you have to do
  • Prioritize those which must be done first
  • Start with the first and focus on it, don’t let your other tasks interfere
  • Complete this task and cross it off your list
  • Start the next task
  • Interruptions happen so decide which of them needs to be addressed and…
  • Re-write your list of priorities…it can change many times
  • Repeat steps 1-5

Remember that you need to stay focused.  Multi-tasking is not doing many things at once, rather it is the ability to jump from one task to the next.  This is how the brain works.  One thing at a time.  The more you do this the quicker it gets.

Also to keep in mind you must take care of self,

  • Sleep well
  • Eat right
  • Exercise
  • Meditate or pray; connect with your spiritual essence
  • Learn to say “no”
  • Do not obsess
  • Be confident
  • Delegate; Divide and conquer!  Utilize your team, family, friends, and colleagues

Knowing what to do with what time you have will be a transferable skill many will seek.  It is also rewarding and once you deliver, execute, and accomplish; your ability to succeed will add to your sense of accomplishment!  This, in turn, will add to your feelings of self-worth and confidence…and thus you seek other tasks! See the cycle?  You are ready to take anything on! (Well maybe not everything.  Lol…that’s another post!)

Seize the day!

See the chances before you and do the things you wants to do instead of waiting for a later time!

Ok!  So there you have it! Hope this helps! Have a wonderful day everyone!

I am a deep thinker, lover of thoughts, an aspiring writer sharing my words. In sharing, I am caring. I am a member of the human race with an appetite to motivate, inspire, empower and provoke thinking. I am compelled to a vision that we are all here for a reason, life is like a deck of cards... “My cards. My deal. Life is learning the game!” #opism What is OPISM? I have come up with this term as my nickname is Op and they are my own quotes representing a moral doctrine belief system. Thus...Op+ism=Opism. #opism. My professional experience is disbursed across industries from financial services and sales to that of personal and emergency care. As one who has trained and coached, mentored and taught; it has become a passion within to witness and feel joy in the achievement and success of others that I have been associated with. I am a lifelong learner and have created and facilitated various training materials. It is through such experience that I discovered the power of positive feedback in both professional and personal manners. I am self-disciplined, accountable, determined, humble, loyal and adaptive; but above all, I value my integrity! I am a decent human being. It is with my greatest pleasure to share with others the power of positive words.


  1. Thank you for sharing these excellent and achievable tips, Paula. I love that you include self-care as it is essential to our overall well being. If we aren’t taking care of ourselves, it can impede our ability to navigate in other areas of our life. It is easy to become overwhelmed when our plate seems full. But digestible chunks is often an excellent way to proceed.

    • Dr Jefferson Stewart. Thank you so much. It all works out better when we see a reason behind our methods. Than you so much for this great complement here. I really appreciate this. Have a great week! Paula

  2. Paula…this is such a concise and delightful set of points that you lovingly put together here for us. I adored delegate and say no when you need to. I wonder what your favourite points are for yourself and your obvious use of time management skills. I appreciate the mention and the attention you offered to us all! Have a fabulous weekend.🗝🔑🗝

  3. Great tips here, Paula. I love the cycle and the focus on self care. I’m learning how to do that and trying to remember that self care is not selfish. Put the oxygen mask on yourself first. Thank you!

  4. Thank you so much for this reminder, Paula! I especially appreciate the ideas for self-care as this continues to be the foundation upon which my continued healings and transformations take place. I will offer a slightly alternate viewpoint about time-I now experience the flow. In releasing all the things (literally de-cluttering), the activities (that sucked my soul like TV watching or news listening or extra-curricular experiences of what other people expected me to do that I didn’t love), the “bully” in my mind, I have found that time expands for me in the flow of doing exactly what my heart leads me to do. I can trust this wisdom implicitly. I rarely look at a clock. I have found an adapt, shift, go, flow style that I love. I feel freer than I ever have in my whole life. I no longer wake up to an alarm clock (unless I must be at an early appointment). I trust my inner guidance system more than I have ever and find that I’m completing exactly what I want to complete inside bursts of gratitude, humility, and grace. The writing pours out of me easily and effortlessly. Ideas continue to stream in from who knows where.

    As you state it “seize the day!” Yes! I know how to do that now!!

    Maybe I’m an outlier. This would not be the first time…

    Thanks, again, for your encouragement and wise ideas!

    • Oh Laura, Thank you!
      I share your view here and have found it to be most profound. The article helps for a more structured environment really ..such is life for many…Work, School, Parenting, sports, appointments….
      We seldom remember that we control the use of time in these situations.
      I am also the boss of me now more than I was before. Time moves faster when there is creativity. The hunger is there and the more I feed it, the more it wants! Exponentially increasing! I have learned to say no, do what I think matters and trust my ability to do what is right.
      Thank you for sharing this. I can relate on this level. If we are outliers, then that’s ok with me!
      Have a wonderful day Laura,,
      Thank you for spending time here! Delightful!

      • Oh, Paula, I am so relieved!! And when I was a full time parent and part time feng shui consultant I had to be very structured with regards to time. Ah, the joys of the empty nest and living on the side of a mountain!

        I wish you a beautiful day, too, Paula!! And you are so welcome. My joy to offer this possible “outlier” perspective.
