Do you wish there were ore hours in each day? Are you frequently busy or feeling rushed? Is it difficult for you to schedule the things you want to do because you’re so focused on what you have to do? Do you always wish you could schedule your time better? Yes, yes and yes? This article is for you!
Think about using a timer. This will show you how much time you have left. As an example, if you know you have an hour to devote to a task, do so by setting your timer in 20 minute increments, and take a little break in between each one.
Plan out your work one day in advance. Lay out your plan for the day so you can know what to expect. Drafting tomorrow’s to-do list the night before is a smart tactic. You can get right down to work when you know what is coming.
Using a calendar is a good idea. Some prefer to use the standard paper calendar for writing on. Others prefer easily accessible electronic calenders on their computers or phone. Paper or electronic, a calendar is the smart way to manage your time more effectively and keep everything in order.
Pay attention to deadlines. This can cause your tasks to suffer if you do not. If you had kept your deadlines in sight, then it would not have been necessary to drop some projects for a rush job elsewhere.
If you have problems with time management, increase how much you focus. Many people cannot finish multiple projects at the same time because they are not good at multi-tasking. Your work quality will suffer when you are overwhelmed. Take your time and get each thing done one by one.
Analyze just what you have been doing wrong if you struggle with time management. Are you able to focus? If not, why? To use your time efficiently, you need to identify what you are doing right and the things you’re doing wrong.
Time is one thing that cannot be created and we are never able to get more of it. The past is a closed book; the only way to improve our use of time is to be more efficient and effective at managing it in the future. Use what you learned here to make the most of your time.
