How Do You Use Your Time

By Pamela A. Scott

Time management is one of the top problems people tell me they struggle with. And I get it—I struggle with it, too.

But let’s look at the truth of the situation.

It’s not how you manage time. It’s about how you manage YOU.

We all have the same 24 hours a day. To my knowledge, nobody has found a way to squeeze another hour or two in a 24-hour day.

Here are some quotes from management guru Peter Drucker. I hope they get you thinking.

“Everything requires time. It is the only truly universal condition. All work takes place in time and uses up time. Yet most people take for granted this unique, irreplaceable, and necessary resource. Nothing else, perhaps, distinguishes effective executives as much as their tender loving care of time.”

“One cannot buy, rent or hire more time. The supply of time is totally inelastic. No matter how high the demand, the supply will not go up. There is no price for it. Time is totally perishable and cannot be stored. Yesterday’s time is gone forever, and will never come back. Time is always in short supply. There is no substitute for time. Everything requires time. All work takes place in, and uses up time. Yet most people take for granted this unique, irreplaceable and necessary resource.”

“Until we can manage TIME, we can manage nothing else.”
