Give me time!

Time is the ultimate finite resource. You are given only a certain amount of it to spend in your life, and you never know how much you have been given. The only certainty is that you can only spend that time once. There are no refunds. Perhaps now is the time to consider a budget for your time, so that you get the best value for your investment.

We are living in an age of time poverty. Despite the technological advances of recent decades, people find that the amount of discretionary time available to them seems to be under ever increasing pressure. This is without doubt one of the commonest causes of stress that I deal with every day as a therapist and coach. It seems everyone is making demands on our time – the boss, the kids, the parents, friends, e-mail, and even Facebook. Finding the way to balance these demands is vital to reducing stress, getting things done, achieving goals, and finding that precious quality time to recharge the batteries!

Time management coaching gives you back the power to control your own life; your own time. You will learn simple techniques to manage the demands placed on you, so that you always feel in control. You will find yourself doing the things that are important – doing them in a planned way. This leaves plenty of flexibility to handle a crisis if it occurs – without ever feeling overwhelmed. It also makes time for the good stuff in life, enabling you to enjoy yourself without feeling guilty about what you think you “should” be doing.

You will also learn how to identify what is really important to you – your values in life. When you really understand your values and start living your life and managing your time around them you are on the fast track to happiness and fulfillment.
