Time management is extremely important but a successful leader must manage more than time.
A successful leader also knows the importance of managing their emotions. Nobody wants to hang around an emotional time bomb that may “go off” any minute. Successful leaders know when to display emotions and when to delay them. Bottom line putting others, not yourself first in how to handle and process them.
Successful leader knows to manage their priorities and also manage their energy.
We often talk about the sacrifices needed to become successful and the need to pay the price for success, which is often time with family. Balance their personal life as well. What good is it for someone to climb to the top of the success ladder, at the cost of losing their marriage of alienating their children? If you blow managing yourself at home, that will have a negative impact that will spill over into all areas of your life including your work. Successful leader know they must manage their personal life.
“Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me”, is one of the biggest lies ever told (over and over again). Successful leaders know that the power is immense, and know to manage the words they chose.
Successful leaders understand the importance of managing their thinking, not only the value of setting aside time to mentally process and plan but their thinking process. Thoughts are things, your mind will give you back what you put into it. So fill your mind with inspirational and motivational thoughts.
