I was very fortunate to be interviewed recently (May 2016) by NHBS regarding my new book, ‘The Effective Ecologist – Succeed In The Office Environment‘. One of the questions they asked me related to time management. My response is shown below.
As managing director of two companies, as well as a bestselling author, time management must be a well worn tool in your kit bag. What’s your top time management tip?
Everything in this world is affordable or available at some level, apart from time itself. It doesn’t matter how rich you are, how many people you have in your team, whether or not you are the best at what you do. Once a moment has passed, you can never get it back. You can never go back to yesterday and undo the thing that prevents you from doing what you should be achieving today. My top tip – treat time as the most precious commodity you have available to yourself. Organise it well, be protective over it and use it well. Make sure you spend your time doing things that make a difference. If there is no benefit to spending time on something then stop doing it. No benefit, no point… …We all are equally rich with the time we have immediately in front of us. The choice is, how do you choose to use it to best effect? Click here to read the full interview.
