Time management is the process of planning and controlling how much time to spend on specific activities. There are ways you can go about achieving this…
- Set goals correctly
Set goals that are achievable and measurable. Use the SMART method when setting goals. In essence, make sure the goals you set are Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, and Timely.
- Prioritize wisely
Prioritize tasks based on importance and urgency. Start with the hardest to easiest.
- Set a time limit to complete a task
Setting time constraints for completing tasks helps you be more focused. Making extra effort to decide on how much time you need to allot for each task can also help you recognize potential problems.
- Take a break between tasks
When doing a lot of tasks without a break, it is harder to stay focused and motivated. Allow some downtime between tasks to clear your head and refresh yourself. Consider grabbing a brief nap, going for a short walk, or meditating.
- Organize yourself
Utilize your calendar for more long-term time management. Write down the deadlines for projects and think about which days might be best to dedicate to specific tasks.
- Remove non-essential activities
Determine what’s significant and what deserves your time. Removing non-essential frees up more of your time to be spent on genuine things.
- Plan ahead
Make sure you start every day with a clear idea of what you need to do. Consider making it a habit at the end of each workday to go ahead and write out your “to-do” list for the next day.
