TIME MANAGEMENT AND ORGANIZATION: FUNDAMENTALS FOR SUCCESS
Here we are in a new year.
Many of us will make “resolutions”. Some resolutions we may embrace and stick to, while others will get slighted or brushed off.  
Making resolutions is actually a great idea, as long as we are serious about them. The thing to remember is that there is a difference between a determination and a wish.
One personal resolution I want to commit to is time management. I am actually good at it; however, I want to sharpen my focus and not stifle in this area.
I speak with various women during the course of a week who often need encouragement in time management and organization skills.
These two matters, time management and organizational skills, are not only critical in operating a business but applies to our personal lives as well.
In conversations with any successful business owner, they will tell you that their business and livelihood would not thrive without it. We have to start with the basics, like using a calendar.
Please do not rely on your memory when it comes to making and keeping appointments.
I’ve witnessed people lose businesses, customers and money this way.
Start simple with a calendar for your desk, your purse, your briefcase and your car dashboard. There is power in a sticky note.
Give yourself permission to design your own calendar.
You will discover that others will respect you when they realize they need to make an appointment with you.
Do not be intimidated or offended if others are not willing to comply. If they are respectful, they will honor you by making an appointment.
According to Webster’s Dictionary, appointment is defined as, “an arrangement to meet someone at a particular time and place or a meeting arranged in advance”.
Be serious with your own time management while respecting others’ time as well.
