Stop wasting time and start using it wisely.
If you’re the type of person that looks at the clock at 4:00 p.m. and wonders where the day has gone, it might be time to start using your time wisely. Even if you feel like you have a never-ending list of things to get done, people to call, and emails to respond to, simply managing your time better will help you to be more productive. What’s more, you’ll stress less as you’ll be on track to successful time management.
To gain more control of your time, here are eight tips to get you started on time management success:
Track your time – The more you know where your time goes, the more you’ll be able to hold yourself accountable and see where you’re wasting precious minutes.
Set realistic time goals – Now that you know how long a certain task takes, you can stop guessing that it’ll take over an hour when it only takes ten minutes.
Plan ahead – Stay one step ahead by planning what you’ll do tomorrow, next week, or next month.
Make a to-do list – Organize your duties by priority and work your way from the top down.
Batch related tasks together – Divide your tasks in categories so that you’re not jumping around.
Schedule time for interruptions – As much as we’d like life to be streamlined all day long, interruptions and setbacks happen. Don’t be frustrated by this, allow time for interrupted workflow.
Make use of prep time – Make an agenda for every meeting or phone call you have scheduled so that you hit all the talking points and organize the meeting.
Take breaks – Everyone needs time away from work! This increases productivity you return to your desk refreshed and in a better mindset.
By using your time productively and making the most out of your efforts, you’ll be able to do more without burning out!
