Effective Time Management

Hey Friends,

I used to have a love-hate relationship with time. On one hand, I loved getting things done and always wanted to do more. On the other, I felt like there was never enough time in the day to accomplish everything I wanted. However, over time (no pun intended), I learned how to manage my time effectively and make progress towards my goals without sacrificing my health, wealth, or happiness.

We all have the same 24 hours in a day. it is possibly the only asset that’s distributed equally among every human on Earth. Everyone you know, including the people who inspire you, awe you, and even those you’re jealous of, have the same 24 hours in a day.

Recently I decided to put my learnings to the test, and see if I can use my time management techniques to create an eBook quickly. So that is exactly what I did.

You can download the FREE eBook from https://www.aakashmandhar.com/ebooks

Here are some techniques I used to accomplish this:

  1. I used the 80-20 rule, to get 80% of the value for 20% of the effort. I focussed on getting it done, as opposed to getting it perfect.
  2. I used Notion’s AI to improve my writing.
  3. I leveraged Social Theka’s https://www.socialtheka.com design & illustration skills to design the eBook.
  4. I used my own website to set up the distribution channel and give it away for FREE.

I am a strong believer in the three step process to master any skill.

  1. Get Started → Have the courage to start doing it.
  2. Get Good → Have the discipline to stick with it.
  3. Get Smart → Learn how to optimize it.

This is my way of Getting Started with authoring eBooks.

I also took some other material I had created (which if you squint hard enough, can be considered an eBook) and made them also available for FREE.

My request to you is:

  1. Try is out. The techniques listed there have really helped me over the years.
  2. Give me feedback as it will help me “Get Good”
  3. Share it, if you find it useful and think others can benefit from it.
