5 Time Management Traps To Avoid

Do you have too many competing priorities at work ?

Are there certain days when you feel that things are so busy, that you are barely able to stay afloat ?

In the midst all the chaos and crazy days, are you actually taking one day at a time ?

Do you feel that if only you had more time, life would be so much better ?

If the answer to the above questions is yes, then you are NOT alone

I speak with business leaders and professional globally as part of my coaching practice, and almost all of them seem to be under a lot of work pressure

Many of them feel completely overwhelmed and stretched in all directions

And if you are one of them and are finding it difficult to manage your time, here are 5 time management traps to avoid 

The Hope Trap

You hope that at some point in the near future, you will be able to free up time

You assume that time will create time for you

But the fact is…

That time NEVER comes

Life just gets busier

Your “to-do” list keeps on increasing, right ?

The Temporary Trap

This is similar to the Hope trap, but with a slight distinction.

You also assume that your current situation is only temporary in nature, hence you do not do anything about it

What really happens is that your "to-do" list keeps on increasing and the situation eventually becomes permanent

The Ignorance Trap

You assume that pressure at work is only confined to workplace 

You ignore the impact of time pressure on other areas of life :

Your energy levels

Motivation

Physical and mental health 

Relationships

The Flying Solo Trap

When there is a lot going on in your life and you are trying to take one day at a time, that is the time you need most support 

But for some strange reason, most of us want to fight our battles alone. 

We fall into the flying solo trap !

The Busyness Trap

In some cases, you unconsciously fall into the trap of making busyness as your default operating style

Even if you have some free time available, you create work for yourself

You are busy all the time !

Over to you now

What is your biggest challenge when it comes to time management ?

Which trap from the above list do you fall most into ?
