TRIPLE III TIME: Investment Strategies For Your TIME!

Doesn’t it seem like today everyone believes we no longer have 24 hours in a day!?  That work time goes by somewhat slow…but home and recreation time races by.  That no matter how effective and efficient we try to be with our time management plans…that we never seem to finish one task well enough to satisfy ourselves and thereby move forward to the next project frustrated.

Reality?  Fast & Diversified…that seems to be the “life-pace new normal”!  So with that in mind let’s take this TRIPLE III TIME message opportunity and talk about Investment Strategies For Your TIME!

First we need to specifically consider your TIME as a special company asset.  What do I mean?  Think about your TIME as:

  • Something only you own
  • A limited resource
  • Something non-renewable
  • Priceless

Then think specifically how you “spend/utilize” your TIME asset everyday.  Consider workplace and personal products or services you complete/deliver.  This approach may be very difficult…but it is the only means to determine if you are getting an appropriate Return-On-Investment (ROI) for your TIME.

Consider TIME draining activities like:

  • Are you “triple-guessing” yourself on a decision already made?
  • Spending an inappropriate amount of time with those who chose to do the minimum?
  • Participating in “old-news” actions and not future-building issues?
  • Finding yourself working for technology demands…rather than making technology work for you to advance?
  • Focusing so much to make sure everyone is doing everything correctly….that innovation is ignored?

Bottomline: Devising Investment Strategies For Your TIME is a very personal consideration.  Just like no one invests their savings the same way…no two people should invest their TIME the same way.

Give yourself some TIME…to consider your TIME investments.  I believe your ROI will be worth it.
