How often does it feel like you are wasting your time doing things you either hate doing or really feel you shouldn’t be doing?
What’s up everyone? Got a great show for you today. You’re about to take the red pill to open your eyes to how you’re plugged into the time-sucking matrix!
Speaking of matrix, as a bit of background, you might want to do a quick Google search on Stephen Covey’s four quadrant Time Management Matrix …
The tools and exercises we’re going to talk about are some of the most powerful for helping you to truly see how you are spending your time. And this will help you to know what you need to cut out so you can focus your energy on where you really should be spending your time..
What’s on tap:
- How to use Covey’s quadrants to structure your life so you’re doing the things that bring you energy … (03:04)
- Which Quadrant we should be spending 90% of our time in and reasons why we don’t … (04:01)
- Time to do a time inventory. How to do it, and why … (05:57)
- A “Delegate and Elevate” quadrant exercise to help you hone in on what you should do versus delegate to others (this is extremely powerful when you do it …) (07:23)
- Why you should love meetings, but there’s a caveat … (10:39)
Daily F5 goals …
One other thing you might find useful, as you employ the concepts in this podcast, it’s important to think once more about your goals. When I’m scheduling my weeks, I’m very intentional on setting my F5 goals for each day. F5 stands for: Focus. Fitness. Family. Finance. Fun. These categories work for me, and they might for you as well, but hopefully they’ll serve as a springboard for further thought.
Leave a review!
Alright, that does it for this week. As I mentioned last week, I would greatly appreciate it if you’d share this podcast with a friend who could benefit, and please leave the show a review on iTunes. This helps us get in front of more listeners looking for ways to become their best selves.
Next week, I got something scary brewed up for you, with it being Halloween and all (I love this time of year …). Until then, keep pressing forward. You’re stronger than you know!
