What Is Your Commitment Level?
Effective time management and your commitment to it, can be a key component to success in your chosen field of career or endeavour. But the more important question is 'what is your commitment' will be personal to you.
Some people see this commitment thing as an ongoing problem, a series of obstacles to overcome or endure. Now, you can get down or annoyed about this subject or you can see it as a challenge, which is fun and exciting.
Most people get really frustrated and verbally abuse themselves at their inability to master their own commitment in the areas of time and mindset. But I think the first point is knowing that nearly everyone has these challenges and you should never beat yourself up about getting it wrong, which could just be your perception of course.
Now obviously you have to be proactive here and set some kind of schedule for yourself and your business, but understand that life sometimes gets in the way and destroys your meticulous planning efforts.
Be cool, calm and flexible about things and soak up these disturbances and distractions like a professional. Know that you will achieve your goal regardless of any outside influence or hurdle.
The important keys here are becoming committed, unstoppable and determined. Knowing that things will happen that will throw you off kilter and out of perfect balance.
It's a part of life and you have to understand that this will happen, just make sure that you get back on track quickly and into creative and smart work as rapidly as possible.
Say to yourself, 'That is just one of those things that happens and it isn't a problem.'Shake yourself off and move on, because each minute is a new one.
I found this paragraph relating to something called PARKINSON'S LAW, which I thought was interesting.
Parkinson’s Law – work expands to fill the time available for its completion – means that if you give yourself a week to complete a two hour task, then (psychologically speaking) the task will increase in complexity and become more daunting so as to fill that week. It may not even fill the extra time with more work, but just stress and tension about having to get it done. By assigning the right amount of time to a task, we gain back more time and the task will reduce in complexity to its natural state.
One of the biggest problems for me was actually taking care of the important stuff, like income producing activities.
First of all I do not worry about this any more, because my first job each day is to write a blog entry for this blog, which I am very diligent about.
Now the key for me is to let things flow freely, rather than set tasks 1 through to 5 and attack them one at a time. I find freedom works for me, but I fully understand that this may not work for everybody and you may need to be more organised.
I decided a long time ago to enjoy my home business experience and it seems to be working out for me.
I am not sure that I have all the answers for you on this subject. So I would encourage you to practice, try and research different methods, until you find a suitable way of working and a method(s) that answer the question, 'What is your commitment.'
