Have you ever been to a time management course? Generally, they teach skills and strategies to better manage your time. It might include goal setting, prioritising, delegating, etc.. However, have you ever met someone who does those skills yet still struggles with managing their time? Of course you have!
Time management is much less about the strategies you put into place and more about the mindset you have about time.
If you have underlying beliefs such as I’m always late, I procrastinate, I have too much to do, I do my best work at the last minute, or anything similar – no matter what time management strategies you use, your unconscious patterns will override your attempts to manage your time.
Similarly, if you have behaviours like not being able to say no, multi-tasking or perfectionism – the strategies you learn about managing time will generally not work.
This is where NLP comes in. With NLP, you’ll be able to change beliefs that don’t serve you, create new behaviours that are aligned with you want to do and understand how you best process information so you can work to your strengths.
What if you were to learn that procrastination and doing excellent work at the last minute could actually be strengths? If you are prone to those behaviours or beliefs they actually might work in your favour once you embrace them instead of work against or around them.
We have seen so many people greatly benefit from managing their time through their own psychology vs. time management strategies.
