“The purpose of time management and getting more done in less time is to enable you to spend more face time with the people you care about and doing the things that give you the greatest amount of joy in life.” ~ Brian Tracy
According to Brian Tracy, there are nine disciplines you can develop that will improve every area of your life. We have learned that every exercise of self-discipline strengthens every other discipline at the same time, just as every weakness in self-discipline weakens you in other disciplines as well.
Today, my articles on self-discipline continue as we focus on the Discipline Of Daily Time Management with a little help from Brian Tracy….( be sure to claim your FREE gift posted below the video )
Time management is no easy task. A good time management plan will actually take time to develop and implement. However, be aware that even though you spend much time planning and managing your use of time, it will prove to be an effort that will pay dividends to you…
Because, good time management is the only way to successfully approach any project. This will also allow you to free up time for other leisure activities as you learn to make more productive use of your time.
To achieve all your goals and become everything you are capable of becoming you must get your time under control.
Psychologists generally agree that a “sense of control” is the key to feelings of happiness, confidence, power, and personal well-being.
A sense of control is only possible when you practice excellent time management skills. To change or improve your life in any way, you have to make new choices and new decisions that are more in alignment with who you really are and what you really want.
It doesn’t matter if you are an adult, a teenager, a Home Based entrepreneur or you work in an office, if you master the art of Time Management… you WILL reap the benefits.
Watch this video where Brian will give you some important tips that will assist in your time management discipline.

Rule: “Every minute spent in planning saves ten minutes in execution.”
The more you plan, the better you use your time, and the more you accomplish.
1. Begin by making a list of everything that you have to do. The best time to write your daily list is the night before so that your subconscious can work on it while you sleep.
2. Organize the list by priority before starting work. The basic tool of time management is a list, organized by priority, and used as a constant tool for personal management. The fact is that you can’t manage time; you can only manage yourself. That is why time management requires self-discipline, self-control, and self-mastery.
3. Practice the 80/20 rule, which says that 80% of your results come from 20% of your activities.
4. Use the ABCDE method to set priorities. This is based on considering the consequences of doing or not doing a particular task. An “A” activity is something that moves you toward your goal, the faster and more directly the better. A “B” activity is an activity that does not move you toward a goal that is important to you.
5. Organize your list by A-1, A-2, A-3, and so on.
6. Start on your A-1 task first thing in the morning.
7. Discipline yourself to concentrate single-mindedly on your A-1 task until it is 100% complete.
8.The discipline of good time management spreads to all your other disciplines. It has immediate payoff in improved results, and long term payoff in terms of the quality of your life work.
Make a list of everything you would like to be, do, or have in the months and years ahead. Analyze your list and select those items that can have the greatest possible consequences in your life.
