Good Morning - Time Management

Dear Children,

Highly successful people realize the importance of being consistently productive each day and they devote each day towards extracting as much value from that day as possible, whether it is in their personal or professional growth.

PLAN YOUR DAY - Try to do your planning at the same time every day. Write out a To Do list every day. Separate your To Do list into A, B and C priorities. "A" items are important to your long term success, "B" may be urgent but not as important and
"C" are those that would be nice to do if you get the time.

Start with the A items. Don't work on a C just because it's easy to do. Also, break your A items into small manageable chunks, so they're easy to accomplish. Don't jam your day full of activities. Leave time for emergencies, special opportunities and thinking time. Be your own manager. Ask yourself if you have met your goals, and what changes you plan to make to achieve them.

Always plan time for balance; include family, fitness, recreation, and social activities.

Sleep well. Plan every day. Anticipate less. Relax. Laugh. Eat Well and Exercise.

Love, Amma-Naana
