The Link Between Good Time Management and Business Success
The Significance of Time Management in the Corporate World
In New Zealand’s rapidly changing business landscape, time management has become more than just a skill—it’s a necessity. As Russell Eastwood, a seasoned trainer and passionate advocate of time management, aptly says, “As life ever been more urgent than it is today, people are addicted to urgency.” Our digital age has heightened the need for managing time, with so many juggling multiple tasks and responding to constant notifications. While apps and online resources have multiplied, true time mastery is about understanding oneself and aligning actions with priorities.
Eastwood & Co’s Holistic Approach: “At Work” Time Management Course
According to Russell, “Time management is talked about all the time… but it impacts on all of us differently.” Recognising this individualised challenge, the “At Work” course is not a one-size-fits-all. We design this time management course to align with the unique ways individuals interpret and interact with the world around them.
The course comprises several stages, starting by organising and decluttering one’s workspace, be it digital or physical. It then dives into understanding the habits and behaviours that often thwart one’s efficiency— from frequent interruptions to the habit of crisis management. The culminating stages involve planning and prioritising tasks based on their urgency and importance.
But what sets this course apart is its commitment to long-term change. Time management courses often lead to short-lived enthusiasm, but what we do at Eastwood and Co is quite different to your typical course. We have a workshop initially and then three one-on-one coaching sessions with that individual. This prolonged engagement ensures the participant doesn’t just learn but genuinely integrates these life-changing habits into their daily routines.
Beyond Time Management: Unlocking Potential and Living Purposefully
Time management is more than just a logistical skill, it’s a gateway to unlocking our fullest potential. Russell emphasises that mastering our hours and minutes is deeply intertwined with understanding and nurturing our inherent gifts. He believes, “We all have a gift that needs to be used, and effective time management is crucial for us to actualise these gifts and fulfill our purpose.” It’s not merely about efficiency, but about elevating our innate talents, ensuring every moment is meaningfully spent.
Good time management acts as the foundational structure upon which we can construct a life of purpose and passion. When we’re purposeful allocate our time, we create opportunities to focus on what truly matters. In turn, it unveils layers of potential previously overshadowed by clutter and chaos. Time, when wielded effectively, becomes a tool to chisel out the best versions of ourselves. It enables us to direct our energies towards pursuits that resonate with our core values and aspirations. By mastering the art of time management, we don’t just streamline tasks — we carve out spaces to breathe, reflect, and ultimately, shape a life imbued with intention and meaning.
