Three Time Management Habits of Successful People

Anything is possible. I wasn’t expected to graduate from school or even go to college.

Yet because of applying the time management habits of successful people, I graduated from high school and college and college with honours from both institutions. Successful people are willing to sacrifice and focus their time on the things which help them become self-reliant. I knew that was what I wanted. Every step of my journey towards a successful career happened with my son by my side. Once again God showed me that all I had to do was put forth the effort and He would bless me with the beautiful outcome.

 The second of the time management habits for successful people I adopted was not wasting time on trivial things.

I wanted to become a useful and thriving member of society. My goal meant I didn’t have time for gossiping or playing games on my computer. Instead, I spent productive time with friends encouraging each other and building up each other’s character. I understood this as the only sure way I could graduate from college. Get a good job to help me take care of my son. When others were out partying, I was studying, working, and doing things to help me achieve my goals.

When your focus is on the right things, you will never say you are bored because there is always something to be doing.

You can find a productive way to spend your time by reading a book, taking a course or doing other things which will prepare you to achieve your goals. – Whatever your goals may be.

What might you be wasting time on? Check how you are spending your time and create a to-do list to guide where you invest your time. That is another of the time management habits for successful people.



I’m Summer Owens, and my passion is helping youth and young adults realize success no matter what obstacles they face. As an international resilience and leadership keynote speaker, author, S.O. What! Success Coach, and creator of the S.O. What! Literacy, Life Skills, and Character Education curriculum, I empower people to say, “So what!” to even their greatest challenges.  provide a framework to help people see past their challenges and focus on solutions using the S.O. What! Success System (Overcome Obstacles + Eliminate Excuses + Calculate Choices = S.O. What! Success). Through keynotes, workshops, books, online courses, and workbooks, I use life’s challenges and my own story of resilience as a rape survivor and teen mom success story to help others confidently pursue their dreams.
