What is time management?
Time management is defined as the act of planning and exercising conscious control over the amount of time spent on specific activities, especially to increase effectiveness, efficiently or productivity.
Learning how to manage your time is a learning process.
It is possible for you to learn how to become more productive with your day.
The less time it takes to accomplish something the more valuable your time becomes. Let’s say that you have earned $200.00 on sales but it took you forty hours to complete the transaction, your time is valued at five dollars an hour. There are two ways that you can increase the value of your time. One way is by raising your prices. The other way is to be more productive with your time.
Raising your prices will only work if people are willing to purchase your art at a higher price. When you build an audience, and your art is in demand, you will be able to increase your prices. The value of your time will increase.
But when you are first starting, and you are building your audience your prices will need to reflect your experience. The only way that you will be able to increase the value of your time is to become more productive with your time.
The less time it takes you to finish your tasks the more free time you have. Can you imagine having a successful art business that pays the bills while having more time to enjoy your favorite activities?
Time management becomes better over time. The more that you do something, the more efficient you will become. Your goal is to increase the value of your time by being more productive and efficient with your time.
