The reason many business people fail to deliver on deadlines is - poor management of time. There's a saying that you cannot eat your cake and still have it. Relating that statement to businessmen - as a businessman, you don't expect to spend your time doing things that are unproductive and expect to have more time for productive works.
We choose how we use our time. It's without any argument, that all humans on planet Earth have the same 24hrs a day. Hence, we're forced to wonder, how come some people make use of their time productively, while others are wreck less with their time. And if you don't take your time more seriously, accomplishing much in life may become really hard.
In order to understand this issue, first thing is to figure out - what exactly are those things that steal your time as a businessman? You have to actually make a list of these negative activities that are not added good numbers to your net worth, but rather taking away from you. Because whatever steals your time, steals greatly from you.
The funniest reality is that what steals the time of many business people who should have otherwise been focused on their business is - sports, and movies, and music. Basically, your television and your phone are the things that steal your time the most. Knowing this fact, the question now is how do you save some quality time for work.
The biggest problem isn't just the fact that business people spend their time watching television and playing with their phones; but the fact that such people do not control what they watch and do. Pick one or two of your best shows, and watch them alone; plus you have to monitor the time you spend on it. Don't get carried away watching anything that comes your way unplanned. At least that way, you can save some more time for work and more productive things. Hence, be specific on the things you watch - in the long run, you'll have saved some good time for yourself.
