The screen starts flashing and all you see is DOS telling you a serious error have occurred Windows is outdated.
Ok, now you are in trouble, you failed to put backup data in your time management scheme, and all the precious information that supports you company is on that computer.
The worst thing likely occurs. You take your computer to the Tech and he or she tells you, you have to reformat the hard drive and we cannot get back your data.
This is one example of a disaster that has no solution. All you can do at this point is refurbish your computers hard drive, or buy another computer. Your data is gone everlastingly. Now if you had included backup in your time management scheme, the solutions offered would have saved you time and big money.
Another example of a problem area that we can assess and see there is a solution in one direction, yet no solution in the other direction. We can look cautiously at this disaster and see that if we had diverted a plan appropriately, this disaster would have been fixable.
Ok, you go to your office and fire up the computer. Everything appears to be working well. You begin to work through your list of tasks, because you did take the time out to incorporate lists in your time management scheme. Suddenly, the computer fails.
How to Accomplish Your Goals With Time Management
Time management schemes require us to focus on positive discipline all through the process of planning, acting, and achieving.
A positive approach to success is to understand that todayâ€™s society is based on responsibility, sharing responsibility, in addition to cooperation and the willingness to progress.
No solution is precise, but when we find what works for us, and stick to the basic rules, we are well on our way to success and realizing our goals.
Learn The Untaught Things
One of the most important problems with our younger generation is that when they grew up the focus of responsibility, motivation, and survival was not stressed enough.
In todayâ€™s world women and men, both have to work to survive, and many families struggle to raise the children that are sitting at home on video games, or watching television.
Where is the responsibility? For that reason, in order to understand effective time management skills, we have to relearn what we may have not been taught.
Qualities To Achieve A Level of Responsibility
Life is packed with stressors and if we do not have positive discipline to survive, we are often in more trouble than we realize.
Goals and plans is what make a person strive to achieve, and if we do not have our goals and plans in perspective, it is probably we are going to exhaust or fail.
To build up a sense of responsibility we must have the make-up cultivated inside us to survive. The behaviors to achieve a level of responsibility are self-respect, compassion, respect, and determination.
Strive To Manage Time and Reach Success
When teachers and parents that are controlling our lives and not offer us the ability to function in society raise us, we are loosing respect, and building criticism, neglect of responsibility, and negative thinking.
Not all of us were raised in a home where both parents worked and neglect of teaching was happening, but for the many of us that were, we know it is a great effort to manage time and reach success.
Positive discipline then is the process of confessing you are human, equal to others, and make mistakes. When you make a mistake with planning your time management scheme, do not get disappointed, rather learn from your mistake, and find a better solution than the original plan.
This is one form of positive discipline. Another idea is to keep away from negative thinking of criticizing yourself when your plans fail.
Think Positive, Analyze Plan and Achieve Success
Everyone at one time failed with his or her plans, and sometimes it your fault, while other times it is not. Ensure to analyze what occurred and divert the plan so your time management scheme is flowing smoothly again.
Think positive. â€œWow, this was not a good idea, and I made a mistake, but I know there is a solution to this problem.â€
If you consider this, you are accepting responsibility for the mistake, but positively thinking that it is a step back in your plan, and there is a solution to the problem.
Most problems do have solutions, but there comes a time when there are no solutions on hand when plans fail.
