It used to be that time management was a problem that needed to be solved.
“I have a problem with time management” is a common complaint that many professionals have. It leads them to go looking for solutions of an instant variety. For some it takes the form of a time management system that someone else develops and they adapt. For others, it comes in the form of a shiny new PDA, smart-phone or a computer. Some buy time management binders with detachable pages that have sorts of colorful refills.
Thankfully, with the advent of Time Management 2.0 we don’t need to fix anything, because it starts with the assumption that nothing is broken.
Instead, everyone has their own system… whether they realize it or not.
Also, they don’t have to chaneg anything, as long as their current system is working for them. If it’s not, then they can decide that it’s time to upgrade it, and they can do so with a minimum investment, as long as they have a knowledge of the fundamentals of time management.
After the upgrade, they can freeze their system once again, and use it as is, or decide that they want to upgrade it further.
The choice is always up to them.
In 2.0, there is a freedom to build a time management system that fits users’ habit patterns, rather than trying to learn a set of foreign habits that were developed by someone far away, to fit a very different lifestyle.
With a huge sigh of relief, users are finding that it’s a much easier path to follow.
