Additional Resources

In this Time Management series, we’ve covered a lot of ground.  I began the discussion by writing about telling our time where to go (instead of wondering where it went).  I followed that up by explaining the need to be intentional with our time, which starts with the importance of setting goals.  There are goals that inspire, motivate, and excite us to take action.  There are also goals that can set us up for failure.  We talked about setting goals that don’t suck.  Then we wrapped up this sequence with a detailed, actionable look at my goal setting process.

I’m a firm believer that originality is overrated; specifically in this age of information.  If we’re honest with ourselves, the vast majority of “our” ideas are unoriginal.  I’m no different.  What I’ve shared this week is the combination of a lot of research, combined with years of experimentation, trial and error.  While the specific meshing of thoughts that I’ve shared is unique to me, the vast majority of ideas and principles came from elsewhere.  If you’re interested in delving deeper into your own time management and/or goal setting process, the following are some awesome resources for that journey:
