The Hurrier I Go, The Behinder I Get

In this age of abundance, time is the one thing nobody has enough of. Perhaps that’s why Google receives 111 million searches a month for Time Management. Few people recognize how time management depends upon the emotional intelligence skills of self-management and relationship management.White_Rabbit_nobackground

Creating a good schedule is a very rational thing, but sticking to that schedule is decidedly emotional. Many of us start out every day with the best intentions to manage our time wisely. But then we receive a complicated email from a co-worker, a consuming phone call from a friend, or otherwise get sidetracked until our well-laid plans go up in flames. We spend the rest of the day trying to put out somebody else’s fire, or working to resolve issues that weren’t there in the morning. Before you know it, the day is gone and you’re completely off schedule.

When the distractions are your own, sticking to a schedule requires self-management. When the needs of others try to impede upon your plans, it takes effective relationship management to finesse the relationship while ensuring that your priorities are still addressed.

This of course assumes you are clear about what your priorities are. Many Entrepreneurs find themselves feeling like Alice in Wonderland, chasing white rabbits and more than a little lost. Running a business is filled with daily distractions, urgent but not important things to do are around every corner or at the end of the email trail in your in box.

Before Emotional Intelligence can help you manage your distractions you will need to create a strong road map of the priorities and milestones that will lead you to your intended goals. Invest some time clarifying your goals and identifying the important milestones that will help you achieve them. Like Alice you will come across many white rabbits along the way but you will find it much easier to get back on track with your priorities identified and a clear plan for action.
