In every productivity and time management workshop, I’ve taught I always get a few people asking me the same type of questions.
“Angel, I don’t have time to go to the gym. How can I find the time?”
“Angel, I want to start a business but I work a regular 9 to 5. How can I make time?”

Here is an example
Right now my immediate goal is adding an extra $5,000 per month to DataViking sales before I retired from active Air Force on June 30, 2017.
However, twice per month I attend Toastmasters meetings to improve my communication and leadership skills. However, even if I like going or I enjoy going to these meeting right now is not getting me closer to my immediate goal.
Maybe you are doing things that don’t get you closer to your immediate goal. So, take a few minutes to analyze what are you currently.
Here is what I would do.
Step #1 – Analyze
The first step you need to take is to analyze what you are doing and eliminate those things that don’t get you closer to your goal to your immediate goal.

Step #2 – A good night of sleep
The second step is to make an effort to sleep the hours you need. I know that some people believe that sleeping is a waste of time, but you can’t deny that you feel great when you have a good night of sleep.
Step #3 – Automate
The third step is to automate or outsource a few tasks. I automate thing such as grocery shopping, lawn care service, car washes, haircuts, and invoicing to name a few.

Step #4 – Use Shortcuts
The fourth step is to learn the shortcuts of the software you use the most. This alone will save you a time.
