Procrastination of Big Rocks Time Management?

Updated: Oct 4, 2020

Procrastinating on things you don't like doing can only accumulate and create backlogs, which means poor time management.

  • Allow a realistic time frame for each job.

  • Delegate tasks whenever possible.

  • Do not commit to working on a project that could mean losing your personal time.

Time management really means you are recognizing the time of day where you are most effective and taking the opportunity and advantage of these most productive hours. It may not be an accident why some people's phones ring more than others, where visitors and e-mails keep popping up and work disruptions keeps happening.

To manage time then is a misnomer. We do not manage time, we manage ourselves according to the time available to us. If we have to come to grasp and make the most out of our time we have to think of priorities. It is a myth that binds all our reference points and it is the most and only valuable resource that is available to all.

Have you ever heard of or seen the famous Zig Ziglar "Big Rocks" demonstration?

It's one of my favorites and many before me have stressed that this is how you need to approach time management. If you do not, you will continually do the small, unimportant things that may not help you reach your goals. If you don't put priority on the bigger things, more important things in your life, the smaller, unimportant tasks will fill up your day and you will not have room, or time, for the bigger important tasks in your life.
