“There is ALWAYS enough time” (Time Management)
10 Suggested ways of Time Management
We are living in a fast-paced world. Getting all the things on your list of Things-to-Do (If you keep one) need not be complicated. All you need to do is to manage your time which leads us to the question of HOW? HOW DO WE DO THAT? Surprisingly, many people working in the corporate world do not keep a time table of their activities. It is a crucial one since there are, almost always, a lot of things going on in work.
This is a list of tried and tested ways of Time Management
Keep a planner, time table, calendar of activities, or a list—– They will serve as your guardian angels. You are already working and you don’t want to add burden to yourself by keeping all information in your head. This will also help you keep track of your progress.
Be highly motivated —- Step 1 advised you to keep track of your progress, the more you see how far you’ve gone, the more you’ll be motivated to keep that M word —- MORE.
24 Hours in a day for everyone —– This is what most people don’t remember, each of us have 24 hours in a day. Some utilize it as much and getting more things achieved while others don’t. Be the former.
Prioritize —- Rank your activities. Priority goes to the majority.
Multi-tasking —– The ability to do things at the same time without compromising the quality of your work is the goal. This is one of the secrets to a successful day.
You have to love what you are doing.
You have to love the body you are working with – Take breaks! Leave time for leisure and your hobbies. Don’t leave bonding time with your loved ones behind.
Know the peak time of your performance. Being a night person or a morning person can affect your performance, so seek ways to handle it.
Proper Mindset —Stay positive and don’t sulk over the things that would go wrong along the way or activities you won’t be able to do. Sometimes you have to let go of other activities for much more important ones (Hence, Step 4!!) They should push you to work better and be better.
Start everything right — Be a firm believer that how you begin affects the things that would follow. Start your day right: Pray to your god. Start your day right by eating breakfast, start your day right by dressing nicely, and start your day right by looking forward to how your day will turn out to be.
