Everybody is praying for Kanye West. The question is, what's going on with him. I don't know about everyone else but I like it. I like the way he's speaking his mind and what he really wants to say without shame. Kanye knows this is blessed bahavior. Not being ashamed is definitely a great attribute to have and has gotten the super cool star a long long way. Kanye has a fast life and see's a lot of things for how they really are out there. He, of course must prove himself, but now I think we're in the same place folks were in when deciding to agree to affirmative action. How great must one black mind be to have access? He has a vision, no different than that of Ray Kurzweil although, I cannot say if he is being admitted into hospitals. Of course the show looked freaking crazy, Kanye knows his ideas are needed, even I was a little upset because I wanted to see more it looked awesome, but he's crying out- listen to him. What he is dealing with is not unlike what a lot of us have dealt with as Africans from America. Someone is not giving him the props he thinks he deserves. This still brings me back to the conclusion that doing big things takes time, no doubt. I am simply seeking to figure out what it is that he wants right now. Personally I want reparations. Right the wrong, increase access and stop condemning people to live out the injustice of that time. Is it not a new day? The primitive thinking is really beginning to get on my nerves. Racism is dumb and it's standing in the way of our suc-fucking-cess! This is really making me 😡angry but I have to calm down, I have to. Do something! Let Someone know you understand the wrong. Sympathize with someone, your own people even😬. Do it now! Maybe Kanye feels used. Everybody is there cursing and shouting at him about their $70 but who is really trying to understand what's wrong with him? Do people even care or do they want to use him for their killa show fix. He's not a robot, he may be alien like he says but I still think he has feelings. This reminds me of a little book I read called Leon Tillage Story. African born in America growing up in NC in the 1930's, said the kids were taught that "African kids do not have feelings and no matter what you did to us you couldn't hurt us." We cannot still be living this lie. Are we? No. That's it. From this point on, anyone who talks negatively about Kanye and doesn't sympathize with him is cold. Point blank period. Alright class, the word for the decade is sympathy. Have some you fucking assholes.
Good time management is closely linked to goal planning, but they are not the same. Time management is a tool used to implement the steps needed to reach a goal, but it is not part of the goal achievement.
By examining the differences, we can gain clarity on both the management of time and the planning for a goal.
Purpose of Activity
Time management is about organizing your activity to achieve a purpose. The purpose of this activity is to utilize your time (and energy) to get the most done; time management is used to maximize your efficiency. It does not define the purpose of your activity, however.
The steps of a plan to reach a goal are based upon the goal, not the principles of organization. The plan is geared towards making a change, towards moving from where you are to where you want to be. A step of the plan is judged not by the productivity of that action but by the results of the action; does the action move me towards my goal or not?
Goal planning can be done many different ways. You can work backwards, starting with the goal and determining what must be done to reach that goal, and then determining what be done to reach those requirements, and so on. You can divide and conquer, where you take the goal, divide it into parts, and then implement each of those parts. You can use trial and error, where you look at your current situation, find something you can do, and see if you move towards your goal. You can use other techniques as well. The key is that regardless of your approach, your actions are part of a larger effort, to reach the goal.
Time management starts with the current list of activities and creates a plan of action to implement those activities. You can approach your tasks as a list of actions, or as tasks to put into a daily schedule, or even as the needs to be met by a week’s plan. The key is each activity is looked at individually, and the only larger purpose you consider is the overall use of your time. Whereas goal planning is naturally focused on the future (reaching the goal), time management is naturally focused on the present and near future (how can I be more efficient with these tasks).
Time management is not intrinsically valuable. Simply organizing your activity, managing your actions, does not add any value to the activities and actions. Time management is geared towards making you a more valuable and effective person, but not the actions themselves.
The actions you take to reach a goal have their own value, regardless of whether the goal is reached. Each step towards a goal is a step forward. You become more valuable not by becoming more effective and productive but by becoming a better person. The value of the actions of a plan to reach a goal is determined by the value of the goal, not by the value of your productivity.
So time management and the plan to reach a goal are not the same. However, time management is a powerful tool to help you accomplish the steps needed to reach a goal. Using good time management can move you dramatically towards your goal.
