Why is time management coaching important?

What is a time management coach?
A time management coach helps you get clear on your goals and then works with you to achieve the results you want in less time.
Because of their time management expertise, a time management coach will help you work smarter, not harder by simplifying your time, energy and focus to a smaller number of activities that produce bigger results.
Time management coaching is about helping you identify the activities you love to do and are best at. The ones that produce the biggest results, and then focusing more of your time on those activities.
Being able to manage your time effectively, being more productive and being more focused are key benefits of working with a time management coach.
What is time management coaching?
Many people think of time management coaching as just being about someone helping them track their time so they can be more efficient.
As a time management coach who helps small business owners and entrepreneurs turn their goals into reality, I look at time management coaching slightly differently.
Time management coaching can help you achieve more time freedom in your business and life and help you achieve bigger results in less time.
By helping the client get clear on where they’re spending their time right now and where they want to spend their time in the future, time management coaches help their clients become more focused and productive on the things that matter to them.
The guidance and support you can get from a time management coach can help you stop procrastinating, eliminate low value activities and free up hundreds of hours of your time.
I personally help small business owners and entrepreneurs free up 100 hours of their time every quarter so they can achieve their goals quicker and easier.
How can time management coaching help business owners?
As a business owner it’s easy to get trapped doing everything in your business. This can often make it impossible to build any real traction or momentum in your business because you’re being pulled in multiple directions.
When you have to wear so many hats, it’s easy to start working longer and longer hours just to keep up.
This creates a strain between work and home life. It can cause extreme tiredness and fatigue and can lead to real frustration and overwhelm.
It gives you no real time to focus on your biggest opportunities, plan or even think.
Time management coaching can help you get clear on what you do best and produces the biggest results. The coach can then help you eliminate, delegate or outsource much of the other work you do. This allows you to maximise your time on the activities that help you reach your goals quicker.
The simple act of weekly accountability calls and a clear action plan to follow help people achieve their goals much quicker.
9 Benefits of working with a time management coach
Working with a time management coach is a powerful way to focus your time, energy and creativity to produce your best results in less time.
Here are 9 benefits of time management coaching that can help you achieve more time freedom by being more focused and productive on a small number of activities.
1. Better work-life balance
It’s easy to spend longer and longer hours in the office, and have less time to spend with the people that matter most.
Time management coaching can help you achieve a better work-life balance by helping you clarify what’s most important to you.
From this clarity comes a focus on managing your time more effectively at work so you free up more time to spend at home.
This time freedom can be spent relaxing, spending more time with your family and friends, or pursuing things that are crucially important to you.
2. Stop feeling overloaded and overwhelmed
One of the biggest benefits of time management coaching is that it can help you stop feeling overwhelmed and overloaded.
A time management coach will help you simplify your to-do list, prioritise effectively and help you focus your time on your most important activities.
It’s easy to get overwhelmed and feel like we don’t have enough time when we have a bulging to-do list.
Time management coaching will help you get clear on your three biggest capabilities and opportunities each day.
3. Stop saying I’m too busy
There is a big difference between busy work and effective work.
A time management coach will help you stop saying you’re too busy by helping you to prioritise and focus on a small number of priorities.
We become busy when we don’t have clarity on our goals and haven’t identified our high value opportunities.
Time management coaching is about leveraging time to achieve bigger results without being too busy. They can help you work less and achieve much more in the same amount of time.
4. Stop procrastinating
Time management coaches can help you stop procrastinating and get into focused action. Procrastination can waste hours and day of valuable time.
We often procrastinate because we don’t know what to do or how to do something specific.
A time management coach will help you identify the areas of your business where you’re procrastinating, and come up with a plan to help you stop procrastinating.
5. Be more productive
A time management coach will help you become more productive.
They will help you develop the time management skills that will make you focused on results, rather than time spent on activities.
You will get clear on the activities that produce the biggest results and the ones that don’t.
This will help you become more productive, rather than being efficient.
6. Have more control over your time
Using time management coaching tools, a time management coach can help you take control of your time.
These time management tools include conducting time audits, time tracking, time blocking, time leverage and batching.
These tools will help you get a clear picture of how you’re spending your time right now and will become the guide to creating measurable improvements in how you manage and use your time.
7. Have more time to do what you love to do
A challenge for many business owners and entrepreneurs is that much of their time is spent on activities that they’re not very good at and they don’t enjoy doing.
If you spend the majority of your time doing stuff that fills your day, or reacting to calls and emails, it’s difficult to actually find the time to grow your business.
A time management coach will help you get clear on the things you love to do and create the biggest impact.
They will work with you to expand the time you spend on those activities, and eliminate things that don’t grow your business.
8. Have more time to rejuvenate
When you have too much to do and too little time to do it in, it’s easy to feel tired and exhausted all the time.
Working more days and longer hours won’t make you more productive.
Time management coaching will help you create more time for rejuvenation.
This could be more time with your family or following your passions.
When you take more time out of your business to rejuvenate, you will come back energised and be more productive.
Longer hours can lead to stress and exhaustion. The antidote is more time away from your business.
9. Have more time to achieve your goals
If your time is filled with reacting, dealing with problems and ticking off things on your to-list you won’t have the time to achieve your goals.
A time management coach will help you look at ways to leverage time and find ways to help you have time to think and plan.
This could include exploring hiring staff, outsourcing or delegating.
Time management coaching is about simplifying. Doing less to achieve bigger results.
When you have a proven path and plan to follow it can transform how you think and work.
As a result of time management coaching you will know where to focus your time and what result you want to achieve.
Weekly or daily check ins ensure you stay focused and on track.
When obstacles or challenges arise you will have a coach in your corner to help you create an action plan to move forward.
A time management coach provides the structure and support to help you organise your time to achieve maximum productivity, creativity and results.
Time management coaching will allow you to simplify your time, energy and focus.
As a result you can give your full attention to the things and people that really matter most.
Having a time management coach by your side can help you stop being pulled in too many directions at once.
When you can manage time and organise time effectively, you move from time scarcity to time abundance.
Rather than having too little time, you start feeling that you actually have time for everything you want to do.
It’s difficult to do everything alone.
When you invest in yourself and your future, and have a proven path and plan to follow, you will stay on track to achieve your goals, and create a balanced life.
