Find a Time management coach

What is a Time management coach?

If you’re having difficulties using time wisely, a time management coach can step in and help you out. The services provided by this type of coach center on identifying ways for you to be able to use time better. Time management coaches help their clients eliminate activities that are a waste of time. They also aid clients in being organized, meeting deadlines, and ensuring productivity. Most of all, they assist people in overcoming procrastination.

What does a Time management coach do?

We're all given the same 24 hours every day. So why, pray tell, do some of us excel at allocating those hours appropriately? And why do others fail poorly at distributing theirs? It all depends on how easily swayed a person is by time traps. 

It's not intentional for us to waste time. Sometimes, it just happens because of too much stimulus. We'd rather do this other thing than what we initially intended to do.

It's human nature to go for something that activates our dopamine. Unfortunately, by choosing this other activity that gives us gratification now, we end up sabotaging ourselves in the future. A tradeoff, if you please. People are inclined to favor short-term rewards at the risk of long-term costs (Lay & Schouwenburg, 1993).

What's the moral here, then? It's that you continuously work and strive to work on the behavior that facilitates productivity. After that, you'll come to find that you're also alleviating stress (Lay & Schouwenburg, 1993).

In addition, it also helps when you have fewer choices. Human beings would lead simpler lives (Mackenzie & Nickerson, 2009). Just think back to a time when a power outage occurred. The things you can do are limited. You're basically forced back to the fundamentals, right?

If you are able to eliminate other options that lead to procrastination, you get to use your time productively.

But let's be realistic here for a second. Achieving this and personally managing time properly can be a tall order for some people. Luckily, a time management coach can help you with that order by:

STARTING WITH AWARENESS 

Being aware of the problem is always a significant first step. A time management coach can help you acknowledge where the problem lies. They can assist you in developing self-awareness and further enhancing it by teaching you self-monitoring skills.

REFOCUSING YOUR ENERGY ON WHAT MATTERS  

So what are your priorities? If you’re unsure of what they are, a time management coach can aid you in shedding light on them. Consequently, you get to free up more time. You can then refocus your energy on what matters to you with the assistance of a time management coach.

BECOMING ORGANIZED

Things may be overly chaotic right now for you. But all of that can disappear with the guidance of a time management coach. You’ll receive assistance in setting goals, coming up with a doable course of action, and eventually achieving what you want in life.

ELIMINATING TIME TRAPS

Planning on how to achieve something gives a certain high and a sense of purpose. But despite that fulfilling moment, you can’t guarantee that you’ll go through with every detail. Distractions are always there (despite their unrecognizable nature), just waiting to jump in front of you. They can rob you of your focus while masking themselves in sheep’s clothing. A time management coach can help you overcome these time traps.

MANAGING TIME

It sounds almost too easy to find an important thing to do, sit down, and do it. In a perfect world, it would be. Here in the one we’re living in, though? It can take enlisting a time management coach just to do so. But it’ll be worth it because your coach can help you translate your 24 hours into digestible and productive (even enjoyable) activities.

Do I need a Time management coach?

There's this perceived feeling of helplessness whenever people look at their calendars. All those important things that need to be done on certain days can heavily cause distress. But that's just it—perceived helplessness. Time management is really just about your self-management (Dryden & Neenan, 2013).

The inability to see past that helplessness is futile. To deem yourself sucked into a laborious cycle of rushing or questioning why others can pack a lot of productivity and you can't is the problem. It would be prime time to look into a time management coach with that kind of mindset in place.

Moreover, it can be challenging for those who have the freedom to schedule their time. They are prone to low productivity and dissatisfaction without anyone guiding or dictating how to allocate their hours (Verploegen, 2018). So if you want to bring back that feeling of time and control in your life, you can book a time management coach.

How can a time management coach help me?

It's nice to think that you can accomplish more if you're given extra time in a day. But you don't really need it. What you do need is to master and hone your time management skills instead.

This is where a coach comes in. A time management coach can provide you with the necessary guidance in organizing and prioritizing tasks in your life.

While most of the work and effort needs to come from you, a time management coach can help in keeping you accountable. They can also assist you in eliminating procrastination. This way, you can actually accomplish the things that need completing.

How much does a time management coach cost?

It depends. There's no one fixed price for the services of every time management coach out there. Since client results vary and are subjective, pricing coaching services can be tricky.

The following factors influence the coaching cost:

  • Geographic location. Where a client is based can influence how much time management coaches charge. How sessions are conducted also affects the cost — is it online or in-person.
  • Target clients. There’s no coaching business if there are no clients. Coaches need to think of the clients they want. This means keeping in mind their budget. It is likely that coaches increase their rates when aiming for more high-end clients. 
  • Payment scheduling. Typically, coaches charge by the hour. This can range from $50 to $500. They also offer monthly packages lasting for three to six or even longer sessions that can last for one to two years. These monthly packages usually rate up to $5000 or more, based on the clientele.

Five great reasons to hire a Time management coach

Are you familiar with that particular saying about working smarter and not harder?

Knowing this isn't enough, though. You have to embody it and actually incorporate it into your life. Which we all know can be hard to do.

But with a time management coach on your side? Not only will you be working smarter, but you'll also benefit from the following:

NO MORE TIME INDUCED STRESS AND ANXIETY

Looking at the huge pile of untouched work at your desk can be overwhelming. Choosing to do something else that doesn't require too many brain cells is preferable. And most of the time, this is the choice that you go with. You have to admit, though. You're only prolonging the stress and anxiety by neglecting the work. 

The temporary happiness is nothing compared to the hecticness you’ll feel afterwards. Hiring a time management coach can help you in setting your priorities and reduce related instances. It'll be easier to act on urgent things.

SAYING NO TO PROCRASTINATION

Relating to the first reason, hiring a time management coach can help you fight against the intense feeling of procrastinating.

Procrastination is difficult to resist because it stems from deep-rooted causes. It involves all those fears, pressures, and doubts. Basically, those inner feelings that cause you discomfort (Burka & Yuen, 2008)A time management coach can help you in dealing with that discomfort and overcome procrastination once and for all.

PERSONAL LIFE AND WORK BALANCE

Work is only one dimension of life. You shouldn't allow it to overshadow and distort your personal life (Kannadas et al., 2014). So when you're having trouble balancing them out, it would be great to have a time management coach helping you out.  

A coach can also help you in gaining back your time if you've been rendering too much overtime. Spending most of your time on work can badly affect your personal life.

USING TIME WISELY

Regularly scheduling downtime is excellent for your overall health. Still, you can utilize that time for purposeful activities.

For one, you can listen to podcasts that can sharpen your mind or help you learn valuable skills. You can also try out new hobbies to break an old cycle and create a new routine. A time management coach can aid you with this and ensure you won't abuse your leisure time.

HOLDING YOU ACCOUNTABLE

Dictating how to spend your time can be a great thing. Equally, it can also be a curse.

When you control your time, it can be easy to break your commitments when distractions rear their heads. An hour of free time can easily extend to a day of doing nothing.

But with a time management coach around, you can guarantee that someone will be there to reel you back to productivity.

QUESTIONS A TIME MANAGEMENT COACH MIGHT ASK YOU

Questions are what drive any coaching session. It is in posing them that coaches help their clients gain clarity of their situation, what they want to achieve, and how to get there. Think of the questions as the key to unlocking actionable solutions to your problems.

And the best thing? You yourself figure out how to achieve your goal. A time management coach won’t give you a detailed plan of what you need to do. You’ll realize it yourself through their line of questioning.

Moreover, asking thought-provoking questions gets you into a more reflective state (van Nieuwerburgh, 2020). Life can get in the way of that, with you being busy and all. But the questions a time management coach asks you help in filtering what is necessary or crucial and help you focus on those.

Some of these questions may not immediately present themselves as life-changing. Initially, they simply appear as questions to get your ideas flowing. But you’ll realize just how powerful they are down the road.

  • What would you do today if you could only do one thing?
  • What’s that one thing you can achieve that will bring you happiness at the end of the day?
  • What are the other tasks that you need to do?
  • What can you do today that will get you closer to your goal/s?
  • What things need your attention and energy today?
  • Is there something you can do that will reduce your stress?
  • Is there a task that needs to be accomplished that will keep your anxiety at bay?
  • Can you delegate some tasks to another person?
  • Are you the best person to do a particular task? Or are you just saying yes to everything?
  • What’s the thing bothering you most about today?
  • What does time mean to you?
  • Is there something that you are most excited about now?
  • What can you do today to be closer to that goal?
  • Are you looking forward to something in the future?
  • Do you sabotage yourself and your time despite wanting that something badly? Why do you think so?
  • How does managing your time factor into what you truly desire in life?
  • What do you need to change to achieve your version of a perfect life?
  • How are you holding yourself accountable?
  • Are you satisfied with how you’re spending the majority of your days?
  • What’s your plan? Are you accomplishing the important tasks and allotting your resources appropriately?

It is equally important that you work hand in hand with your coach. Because as it turns out, coaching is only as effective as the effort you are putting into it alongside your time management coach.

The quality of the question a coach is asking is one thing. But the quality of your answers and how you’ll act on them are what will fully take you to where you want to be in life.
