Time management positive discipline
Time management schemes require us to focus on positive discipline throughout the planning, acting, and achieving.
A positive approach to success is understanding that today’s society is based on responsibility, sharing responsibility, cooperation, and the willingness to progress.
No solution is precise, but when we find what works for us and adhere to the basic rules, we are well on our way to success and achieving our goals.
One of the significant problems with our younger generation is that we did not stress responsibility, motivation, and survival when they grew up. In today’s world, women and men both have to work to survive, and many families struggle to raise the children sitting at home on video games or watching television.
Where is the responsibility? Therefore, to understand practical time management skills, we must relearn what we may not have been taught. Life is full of stressors, and if we do not have the positive discipline to survive, we are often in more trouble than we realize.
Goals and plans make a person strive to achieve, and if we do not have our goals and plans in perspective, it is most likely we will tire out or fail. To develop a sense of responsibility, we must have the make-up cultivated within us to survive. The traits to achieve a level of responsibility are self-respect, compassion, respect, and determination.
When teachers and parents control our lives and do not offer us the ability to function in society, we lose respect, building criticism, neglect of responsibility, and negative thinking.
We were not all raised in a home where both parents worked, and neglect of teaching was happening, but we know it is a struggle to manage time and reach success.
Positive discipline then is the process of admitting you are human, equal to others, and make mistakes. When you make a mistake with planning your time management scheme, do not get discouraged, instead learn from your mistake and find a better solution than the original plan. This is one form of positive discipline. Another idea is to avoid negative thinking of criticizing yourself when your plans fail.
Everyone at one time failed with their plans, and sometimes it is your fault, while other times it is not. Be sure to analyze what occurred and divert the plan, so your time management scheme flows smoothly again.
Think positive. “Wow, this was not a good idea, and I made a mistake, but I know there is a solution to this problem.” If you think about this, you accept responsibility for the mistake, but positively thinking that it is a step back in your plan, and there is a solution to the problem. Most problems do have solutions, but there comes a time when there are no solutions available when plans fail.
One example of a problem area is evaluating and seeing a solution in one direction, yet no solution in the other direction. We could look carefully at this disaster and see that this disaster would not have been unfixable if we had diverted a plan accordingly. Ok, you go to your office and fire up the computer.
Everything seems to be working fine. You begin to work through your list of tasks since you did take the time out to include lists in your time management scheme. Suddenly, the computer fails. The screen starts flashing, and all you see is DOS telling you a fatal error has occurred. Windows is outdated. Ok, now you are in trouble, you failed to put backup data in your time management scheme, and all the valuable information that supports your company is on that computer. The worst thing possible occurs. You take your computer to the Tech, and he or she tells you, you have to reformat the hard drive, and we cannot recover your data.
This is one example of a disaster that has no solution. All you can do at this point is restore your computer’s hard drive or buy another computer. Your data is gone forever. If you had included backup in your time management scheme, the solutions available would have saved you time and big money.
