14. Time Management

Photo by Aron Visuals; quote by William Penn

I try to be very prompt for showing up at places. If the appointment is for 1:45pm, then I will arrive early.

If my husband has an appointment at 1:45pm, he might be on time if he is lucky. I feel it is my job to get him on time to where we are going, because I haaaate showing up late.

Accidents happen; delays happen, yes. So leave early.

Time is fleeting. It passes us by, and we don’t get the days back. So when I work on something in my business I try to do it as efficiently as possible so I can utilize my time to the max. Does this strategy work all the time? Of course not. Some days I’m like, “Screw it,” and just be lazy and put things off. But other days I am on fire and finish my tasks and save the rest of the time for relaxing.

Other people’s time is important as well. If you are in a conversation with someone, whether text, email, etc., don’t just drop off the face of the Earth. People think ghosting only applies to dating, but actually people in all kinds of positions will do it as well, if they feel they can’t help you or have some other issue. Please don’t waste a potential customer’s time and not respond when they took the time to get in touch with you.

What do you wish you had more time to do?
