Time Management

  • The real secret to time management is that it's really about managing your choices. Even with endless tools for organization and efficiency, ultimately it will come down to what's most important to you.

    Think about your life. How do you spend your time? You may even want to keep track for a week to see if how you think you spend your time is the reality. What we give our time and energy to says a great deal about what we value, whether we do it intentionally or not. Effective time managers make concious choices about where and how they spend their time.

    Tips for Success

    Have a Plan of Action

    Outline your day and set your priorities. If your goal is to accomplish more, then you will get more done if you plan for greater accomplishments.

    Keep Your Life In Balance

    Health, Family, Financial, Intellectual, Social, Professional, and Spiritual are the seven key areas. Do not spend too much time in any one of them, otherwise the others will suffer.

    Work In a Clean Area

    Instead of wasting much of your day looking for what you need to do, be organized! You will get so much more accomplished when you know exactly where things are and what needs to be done.

    Avoid Time Contamination

    When you try to focus on the task at hand, but get distracted by the next call you need to make or the fight you just had with a loved one, you're contaminating your time. Pick a priority and focus your energy.

    Sleep

    Getting the right quantity and quality of sleep is critical in time management. When we are more organized, we get more done each day, which leads to a higher sense of accomplishment, you experience less stress, which in turn, will give you a more restful night.
