Is good Time Management really as simple as just being well organized?
I believe the two, both Time Management and Being well organized are equal.
Here is how I see it.
Take a look at what being organized looks like.
You have the day well stepped out, you plan ahead, you know exactly what needs to be done next, you are always on time, your tasks are often completed ahead of time. All of this comes with ease and little effort.
Does this sound like being well time managed to you? Very much so I say.
Take a look at good Time Management
You have a schedule timed out for tasks of the day, you have put this in place ahead of time, You have set out the important tasks to complete first, you make progress through setting a plan in place for you to follow step by step. This allows you to complete all tasks on time. You are in control and well managed.
You can easily see from the top two examples how being organized and well time managed are one of the same.
If you are struggling with the concept of Time Management, finding it all too overwhelming then perhaps it may be easier to work on your organization skills and simplify things down a little.
As with good Time Management, once you focus on being organized you will soon adapt naturally and it will just become part of your way of life. Begin with small steps.
