Being Careful About Your Time and Valuing Your Time 

So keeping with the theme of valuing your time in order to become successful I have uncovered a couple of articles which are worth reading and videos which are worth watching.

‘Being Careful About Your Time

Busy doesn’t always equal productivity; often, it’s the opposite…

Last week was the busiest I can recall being in a long time. Normally, in a busy week, by Friday, my brain is mush. But last week, it was basically in such a state at the end of each individual day. Looking at my calendar, it’s easy to see why. A sea of meetings. And this coming week is actually worse. As if reading my mind, a video appeared in my Facebook feed this morning speaking directly to this. In a joint interview with Charlie Rose, Bill Gates is sharing a key bit of insight he gained from Warren Buffett.’

Re-evaluate the real cost of my time

Then of course I mentioned that I had to re-evaluate the real cost of my time, including the time I spend doing nothing. This article succinctly explains some of the pros and cons to monetizing your time.

The Value of Time: How Much is Your Time Really Worth?

Not all uses of time are equal and this simple truth can make a big difference in life.

People who spend their time doing more profitable work make more money. People who spend their time investing in others build better relationships. People who spend their time creating a flexible career enjoy more freedom. People who spend their time working on high-impact projects contribute more to society. Whether you want more wealth, more friendship, more freedom, or more impact, it all comes down to how you spend your time.

Explore productivity in the workforce

Ok let’s take the time issue up a notch and explore productivity in the workforce – or maybe not?

According to a recent McKinsey report, today’s workforce spends 61% of their time managing work rather than doing it. That’s insane. We can do better than that.

Productivity is fairly simple, in theory. Even if you have an overwhelming amount to do, the steps aren’t hard to figure out: Pick something important to work on (a task from your most important project, perhaps).

Home-preneurs? How do they juggle

Finally what about home-preneurs? How do they juggle the need to do the housework, deal with cold callers, manage family and extended family issues and still be profitable? This article tries to grapple with these issues.

Are you the type of person who could really work from home? There are as many reasons to work online from home as there are people doing so. If you decide a freelancer life is for you, you may want to consider what this type of life really means, if you are cut out for it and most of all — how will you accomplish what needs to be done?
