I gave a talk Saturday morning on time management. If there’s one subject I’m passionate about besides goal setting, it’s time management. Today’s 30 minute talk to my romance writer’s group, gave them a taste of the workshops I’m doing in Shreveport, LA (March) and Memphis, TN (June.)
It is when you do it right.
Let me show you.
First you have to know why you want to do something. Motivation for a goal gives you the energy to make sure you ‘find’ the time to devote. No motivation, no progress.
At the beginning of the workshop, I asked everyone to write down one goal. At the end, I asked them what they had written down.
Most were generic, ‘I’m going to write two manuscripts.’
Then I challenged them. ”How? What specifically are you going to do to make sure you write two manuscripts?”
Then we got the good stuff. One woman said she surrounded herself with other successful people who guilted her into writing her words. Not the most positive use of accountability partners, but for her, it was effective.
