Time and Energy VS. Time Management

Time Management‘TIME and ENERGY’ vs.
TIME MANANGEMENT

Time managment isn’t the solution, it’s the problem.  How would you like to be managed?  I prefer a partnership.  But before Partnering with Time there has to be Respect.  And to have Respect for Time, you have to have an Understanding of Time.  Like any partnership, the more you understand your partner the better the relationship.

So let’s understand Time.  Time is absolute.  It doesn’t lengthen, it doesn’t shorten.  Yet very effective people seem to get more done in less time.  How would you like to expand your energy within the confines of time?  Sounds good doesn’t it?  The end result would be the ability to be more efficient, more creative, and most importantly, more relaxed within the same allocated time.

The way we do this is by looking at Time from a different perspective.  Instead of a linear approach, we can look at Time as an empty container ready to be filled.  With Energy.

With what type of Energy are you filling your container?  Imagine an 8 ounce glass.  This is your empty container of Time.  Whatever you place in the glass is Energy.

When you constantly remind yourself how difficult a project is, you use up your energy  with a dense and sluggish story.  You drain yourself of energy.  The eight hour work day seems to take sixteen hours.  And you certainly don’t look forward to the next day because it drains you just thinking about it.  You have become a victim of the Energy of your own thoughts, so therefore what you can accomplish in Time suffers.  You are filling the glass with your story.  There isn’t much room for productivity, much less creativity.

Doing the opposite will have a positive effect.  Remember when you were a child and outside playing with your friends.  Your mother said you could play until dinner time.  Three hours later when your mother called you in to eat you couldn’t believe it was already Time.  You were in a Moment in Time.

The same goes for when you are working on a project and the focus is on the creative process.  An even better scenerio is when you enjoy sharing the creative process with another.  This feeds your Energy.  Time flies and you don’t know where it flew to…

What type of Energy did you put in the container?  You choose the Energy.  And you choose the focus of the Energy, both in the confines of Time.

How do we partner with Time?
You choose your Energy.  And maximize your Time.

I trust you found something of value here.  To learn more about creating beneficial Time & Energy in your life, let’s have a conversation.

Here are Tips to Building Business Relationships 

Sales and Business Relationships

I am sure you have heard “Build it and they will come”.
Build a strong relationship and the sales will come.  If not directly from the relationship, it will be from the person they introduced you to.

Create Sales by Building Powerful Relationships

I am here today to share with you the Power of Energy, and to introduce you to the Five Creative Forces which are the foundation of all business dynamics.  The Five Creative Forces are Intellectual, Physical, Psychological, Spirit and Emotional.   By recognizing and understanding these energy forces you will be able to create a powerful and fulfilling organization.

Why should anyone, let alone sales people care about the ‘Five Creative Forces’?  It’s all about genuinely connecting to your client, as well as manager, co-worker and employee.  When you can identify the type of energy an individual is comfortable in, and meet them on that level, you will have the ability to reduce the possibility for misunderstandings and miscommunications.  This allows them to see the positive potential of a working relationship with you.  Ultimately, you will be able to immediately create a genuine connection with each individual on the most basic human level of respect.

1. First, recognize the primary energy your client is exhibiting. By doing so, you will create a natural opening to get in the door.

2. Once in the door, exploration is your next step. Do you have a common ground where you can build rapport with this person? Establishing a second energy with this person creates an acquaintance level of relationship. In this level you have the possibility of presenting your product and making a sale. One sale is a probability but you have not yet created a strong enough connection to warrant an ongoing business relationship.

3. By discovering a third energy and establishing a more personal common ground, you will create camaraderie, a connection your client will remember a year from now. You have now established an on-going business opportunity.

4. By sharing an enjoyable experience usually outside the business arena you have the opportunity to experience a fourth energy. This cements the friendship. Your client will automatically connect you to other, potential new clients.

5. Once you have made a connection deep enough, you will be able to bring in a fifth energy. This will create a partnering, a mutual supportive relationship in your personal and business arena.

We all have been told that creating relationship with your client is the most important detail. But the secret is to create honest and genuine relationships which in the end, is longer-lasting and more fulfilling for your professional, as well as your personal life.
