hey everyone ,
I hope everything is going well and welcome back to my blog! today as you can tell by the title , I thought I’d give you some tips that will hopefully help you to manage your time.
We often talk about not having enough time. Rather than focusing on that, and complaining to yourself or others about not enough time, think about what you do have enough time for. Start talking or thinking about that instead.
I don’t want to make this intro any longer so let’s get started ! ❤
1. Know your goals.
Make sure you’re engaging in activities that support your goals . Everything else is a potential time-waster. Your daily plan should revolve around working on tasks and activities that directly relate to generating your goals .
2. say no !
You’re the boss. If you have to decline a request in order to attend to what’s truly important and urgent, do not hesitate to do so . Be prepared to move on to more productive tasks. Learn from the experience to avoid wasting time later on.
3.Take care of yourself.
Be sure to get plenty of sleep and exercise. An alert mind is a high-functioning mind and one that’s less tolerant of time-wasting activities.
4.Create the right environment to work!
The environment you work in can help with your overall productivity. There are no strict rules about a work environment, so pick what feels right for you. Surround yourself with inspiring decorations that help you feel enthusiastic and passionate. These feelings will help you stay on task and be productive.
If you can choose a particular space to work, choose a space free of distractions. Working in front of your television may be a bad idea, but maybe you can push a desk into the corner of your bedroom and work there.
5.List your tasks in terms of importance !
Before you begin your work load for the day . To-do lists are a great tool, but organize them a little rather than just writing down everything that needs to get done. Group tasks in terms of importance .
Before making your list, write down categories in terms of important. For example, tasks labeled “urgent” must be done today. Tasks labeled “important, but not urgent” are important to do, but can wait. Tasks with labels like “low-priority” can be put off if necessary. and this will help you a lot !
6.Do important tasks first!
Finishing important tasks first thing in the morning will leave you with a sense of accomplishment. The day will already feel like a success and a great deal of your stress will be eliminated. Start off each day by knocking out the most important tasks on your list.
7.Do not multitask !
Many people assume multitasking is a great way to get more done each day and manage time wisely. However, focusing on multiple tasks at once actually makes you less productive. Things will take longer to do, as you’re not giving anything your full attention. Focus completely on one task at a time instead. You will get your work done quicker this way, allowing you to make the most of your time .
8.Shut off your phone.
When possible, turn your phone off. Phones can take up a lot of time throughout the day that you could be using more productively. When it’s easy to log on to Facebook or take a peak at your email, you’re more likely to do it. Do yourself a favor and turn your phone off while you’re trying to do other things. If you find yourself impulsively reaching for the phone to procrastinate, you’ll be met with a blank screen instead .
9.Avoid interruptions as much as possible.
Interruptions disrupt your workflow. If you’re in the middle of a task and stop to do something else, it can be hard to get back into work mode. When you’re working on a task, try to complete it before getting up to do something else. Other things can wait while you strive to complete something.
10.take a break !
after you accomplish every task , take a break ! this will make you feel better and motivated . you can do whatever you want but you have to set a time for this break foe example 10 or 15 minutes ; according to your accomplishment ! and after these 10 or 15 minutes , get right into it and don’t waste your time !
one of the worst things that you can do is to overreact, don’t stress or think to much, just get right into it ! if you thought and overreacted too much you’ll end up making it worst ! if you have too many tasks to accomplish then overreacting is not the solution of your problem ! instead of overreacting and wasting your time , you can just go and do it !
12.Breaking down tasks
Break goals down into their components so that you can accomplish them one step at a time. Write these steps down, and try to be as specific as you can when you do this. Try to complete one task before you go on to the next.
13.Reward yourself for achieving these goals
Reward yourself for achieving these goals to maintain your enthusiasm and will motivate youu.
things will not always run smoothly as you progress towards your goals. When things are not working out, you need to persevere and learn how to take a positive attitude towards frustration and failure.
Mistakes are an important part of any creative process and each is a lesson leading you towards the right solution. Fear of making or admitting a mistake will not lead you to take an effective action . It is said that the people who have achieved the most have made the most mistakes! Try to be aware that satisfaction comes as much from pursuing goals as from achieving them
15.Use an organizer
The organizer helps you to be on top of everything in your life. It’s your central tool to organize information, to-do lists, projects, and other miscellaneous items
16.Know your deadlines
When do you need to finish your tasks? Mark the deadlines out clearly in your calendar and organizer so you know when you need to finish them.
17.Track your time spent
Your key in the amount of time you want it to track (example: “30 minutes”, “1 hour”) and it’ll count down in the background. When the time is up,the timer will beep. Great way to be aware of your time spent.
