The Magic of Time

Accountants have always lived by the clock and charged by the clock and let’s be honest, clients have never liked this, have they?

Time is a strange phenonium. Do the 15 minutes spent sitting in the Dentist’s waiting room, anticipating your tooth extraction, seem like the same time as 15 minutes spent playing in the swimming pool with your children or grandchildren? The answer is, “Definitely not!”

It’s the value of time and how you use it that matters. Much is written about Time Management, but of course, this is an oxymoron – you can’t manage time, just how you use it!

To continue on being “too busy” is Einstein’s definition of insanity; doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.

The only thing you have control over with time is how you use it and especially your attitudes and priorities.

Let’s get started, that is, if you have time!

I have a few tips on how to make the most of your time:

  • Delegate Effectively – there is an art in delegation and discouraging this, is the ultimate objective in business
  • Don’t Re-invent the Wheel – acquire proven processes, tools and delivery systems so every instruction isn’t a one-off
  • Prioritise, Prioritise, Prioritise – the power of prioritisation is immense
  • Learning to say “No” – or more accurately “Yes, But”
  • Intelligent Recruitment – recruit in a more intelligent way to reflect the engagement skills needed in the modern professional world
  • Create a Shift-up for Challenge Culture – live, eat and breath leverage.
