Do you often feel rushed, harried, or as if there just aren’t enough hours in the day? Is scheduling each daily task difficult? Do you simply wish there were two or three extra hours in every day? If so, you can benefit from these tips.
To better manage the time you have in a day, have a plan for it! Always sit down the night before and make a list of what you must get done. Prioritize everything on the list and cross tasks off one by one as you accomplish them. Get into this habit, and you should reach more goals and have more time in the day.
Make good use of a timer. Set it for how much time you have to work. Keep increasing the time until you are up to the amount of time that you want to be able to concentrate for.
If you’re having a hard time fitting all your tasks into the day, try using a calendar to make things easier. Hang one on your fridge or keep a desk calendar handy at work. Mark your priorities with a given time to get things accomplished and you should be able to operate more efficiently with a little time left over.
If you are looking to manage time effectively, take full advantage of a calendar. There are those calendars that you can write upon which some people prefer. Others prefer the flexibility of an electronic calender that can be easily access via their computer or mobile device. It doesn’t matter how you keep your calendar, as long as you like it and it helps you to get things done much more efficiently!
Time is something you cannot control. With only a finite amount of time with which we can work, it’s important to make each minute count. Using these ideas, you can begin to make the most of the time you have available each day.
