Time management skills are simple. The problem is all of us are different, and each of us has to learn which skill works best for us. Often when we fail, we feel discouraged, depressed, stressed, and our confidence is affected. Failure is a state of mind however, and can be resolved rather quickly. It only takes a minute to screw up something, but it can take a lifetime to restore it. Therefore, simplicity is a state of mind we want to cultivate to manage our time wisely, as well as avoiding generalizing.
Let’s take a look a few tips to get us started on thinking simple, and then we can move forward to time management while avoiding over generalizing our plans. Keeping it simple is the process of thinking smart.
If you are constantly worrying, your time is wasted, since worry does not resolve anything. Simple is more defined as free from all the elements that contaminate our minds. Elements such as guile and vanity: Simple is more of a humble attitude that holds a modest position in life. This is one definition, but other definitions define simple as lacking in knowledge and expertise or not socially or culturally sophisticated.
So, to understand the fine line then between simple smart and simple stupid is the opening door to success. As a complex writer and thinker, I avoid generalizing also. This is a definitely sign of simple stupidity. Generalizing is a form of making irrational decisions based on one or more statistics. So therefore, we should not generalize or avoid complex issues when it comes to managing time.
Keeping it simple helps us to stay alert of our situation. Keeping an open mind when it comes to planning and organizing can help us to achieve steps to our long-term goals. Simplicity makes a difference when a bad situation arises. If your mind is stressed, then you might or might not make a wise decision to resolving the problems.
Therefore, when a problem develops, rather than stress, analyze the problem carefully to find a solution of resolve. Most problems are not as complicated as they may appear, so we can think sufficiently if we feel confident, knowing the issue is addressable. If we over generalize, it blocks our mind from seeing the main points that can terminate the problem, and these course of action wasted valuable time, and often leads to bigger problems.
Do not put the cart before the horse in other words. When we train our minds to stay alert, and cultivate good traits that enforce our course in life, we are on a well-rounded road to success and our time is managed accordingly.
If you have a problem with remembering your tasks, don’t be ashamed to post notes wherever you will see them daily. Even if your co-workers or spouse believes you are a slob, forget their illusional state of mind, and focus on what works best for you by keeping it simple and adhering to an open mind.
