Time Management Tips – 19 Busy Leaders Share Theirs

You're doing a good job managing your busy schedule. You know by now a lot of time management tips and tricks. But there are moments when you feel like you could do an even better job if you knew how to improve your time management techniques.

So you start reading books. The books give you the time management tips, strategies and resources you are looking for. And they even work, sometimes, and most of the times, not that much.

 

But there is still this nagging question:

What is the time management tip that could make your time management strategy the perfect one?

What do others do? What do busy leaders do? How do they manage their time to be able to balance their personal and professional lives? By adding more value to their lives and professional activities.

 

We have asked 19 business leaders and entrepreneurs these 2 questions:

A. What is the activity that you do on a regular basis that adds value to your company?

B. What is the activity that you do on a regular basis that adds value to your life?

They will be talking about business development, understanding the needs of their customers, networking, reading, learning, improving themselves so they can better improve their business, "me" time, family time, quiet time, "off-the-grid" time, health, balance, and, quite unexpected from busy people, physical exercise.

 

Because the answer might be that, instead of squizing more activities inside your day, you should be selective with the activities you focus your attention on. And by selecting the most important activities, and doing them on a regular basis, you could add more value to your life and professional activity, than by just mindlessly adding more activities to your to-do list.

Think of this as time management tips with a twist.

The activity that I do on a regular basis is networking. Whether online or through events or meetings you learn from people and it is a way to improve yourself and your business. Meeting new people will always bring us more opportunities.
