Management - Apr 20, 2017

There are two types of time: clock time and real time. In clock time, there are 60 seconds in a minute, 60 minutes in an hour, 24 hours in a day and 365 days in a year. In real time, all time is relative. Time flies or drags depending on what you're doing. Which time describes the world in which small business owners really live, real time or clock time?

The reason many time management gadgets and systems may not be working could be that these systems are designed to manage clock time. But, small business owners live in real time, a world in which all time flies when you are having fun or drags when you are doing your taxes. The good news is that real time is mental; you can create it an control it. There are only three ways to spend time: thoughts, conversations and actions.
