Time. We all have the same 24 hours in the day as everyone else. One thing that separates the successful people from those who struggle to find success is how they use their time. Making the best use of our time is one of the first steps to a solid accountability plan.
I will spare you the old time cliches like “time is money”. In essence how you hold yourself accountable from a time management standpoint is how you are going to hold yourself accountable for others things in our life. When we waste time, we miss opportunities for sales, idea creation, networking etc. Pick a system for managing your time that works for you and stick with it.
This includes taking time to review our goals and plans to help us keep our plans in place. This ensures that consistently have time scheduled in our day for execution of our plans and follow up to see how we are doing. The important thing is to keep ourselves accountable for how we are using our time and that it is used for activities that really matter to us.
How are you using your time? How have you held yourself accountable for your time? How have you failed in that area?
