Title: Time is so precious

Time is so precious
  • Owning it is such wealth!

This gift presented by Bruce Wagner, Ph.D., ESC
Academic Coordinator, The Russell Conwell Center
Where does our time come from?
An horology of our life
24 hours/day x 7 days
168 hours/wk
7 hours/day for sleep
2 hours/day for eating
97.5 TOTAL
1.5 hours/day for commuting (5 days)
Thats it. Thats all you get. The question is,
What are you going to do with it?
Areas of my life
  • Health
  • Family
  • Reading
  • Arts
  • TV
  • Hobbies
  • Travel
  • Quiet
  • Job
  • Studies
  • Maintaining my home
  • Friends
  • and the others still to be remembered

Being specific about each
be specific--every byte!
all the details!
if you leave out part of your life...
  • you will do that thing anyway, and something else
    will lose its planned time
  • you will be really frustrated
  • the aggravation will cost you more time energy
    in the long run

Seeing the whole--seeing the parts
  • Each complex activity represents lots of work and
    thought and our system calls that
  • a project
  • Within each project comes the work that needs to
    be done and we call that
  • an action

in any good workshop there comes the time when
you do the work
You need to make a list!
List all the big things, the projects, going on
in your life That includes work, home,
professional, personal
tougher, but vital
Rate the Projects according to priority
(importance and proximity to due date) -- A, B, C
A Critical B Important C a wonderful dream
Keep going--this is supposed to be hard work
  • name the goals and purposes for each project
  • identify the action steps needed to complete the
  • do a skills survey to see if special learning is
    going to be a part of the project
  • think realistically about how much time each part
    will take

Planning today requires looking at the whole month
Keep monthly calendars long term
  • personal social events
  • tests
  • papers
  • regular appointments
  • meetings

…and now here is today
Its your choice in calendars
  • I keep all 3 formats
  • 2 yearly calendars
  • current next monthly calendars
  • daily calendars for the entire week

Time hogs are issues to live with
  • Our own personal behaviors that take time
  • washing hair
  • daydreaming
  • cats dogs goldfish
  • Individuals who always think their needs are most

Managing your issues
  • Know yourself and plan for what you do!
  • dreaming
  • need for quiet time alone
  • dating
  • Aunt Sues daughter Elises wedding
  • If its planned, you dont need to steal time to
    do it!

more issues, more plans
  • When folks make you wait, have your notes handy
    to let you do other things
  • Have a record to show the sequence of action
    steps for several projects
  • If someone asks for your time say
  • When do I get the time back?
  • What should I give up thats already planned?

Your planning will affect others
  • You will become incredibly energized
  • Your structure controls others
  • you know what to do and when
  • Be careful--you become frightening

Tools of the TM business
  • You need to use a planner
  • Many different versions on the market
  • They may look different, or even be used a little
    differently, but the best one is the one you like
  • Calendars
  • you need yearly, monthly daily
  • its best if you can see all 3 at once

Practicing Routines
  • Discover what works for you!!!
  • Plan according to your own life style
  • bedtime
  • first thing in the morning
  • at the end of the rigorous part of the day
  • Believe that what is planned is not to be a
    concern until its time for action

Its your time enjoy your wealth
