We all want to make the most of the 24 hours we get each day. However, some people achieve more happiness, productivity, and success in the same amount of time as everyone else!
How do they do it?
With these time management tips, you can plan, execute and manage your day and achieve massive success!
1. Audit Your Time
First things first: start by finding out where your time goes throughout the day. There is often a big discrepancy between your subjective time and reality. You don’t need to be very precise and use a stop watch for timing everything you do. You just need to be more mindful of how much time you spend doing what.
Pro Tip: You can use time tracking apps like Toggle Track.
2. Before Meetings, Determine Your Desired Results.
Have a clear purpose in mind before starting meetings. Your team will waste less time by getting back to work as soon as you meet your agenda.
This can then be extrapolated into other aspects of time management. Every time you start a task, determine your desired results, this way you do not waste your time while working on that task wondering when and how to stop.
3. Plan Your Week on Sunday
Walking into work with a plan for the week will help you focus on priorities. You can easily transition from your carefree weekend mindset to a productive Monday morning “work brain.”
Take a few minutes on Sunday to create a plan for your whole week. This will help you keep focused through the week.
4. Put a Time Limit on Your Tasks
Take another look at your time audit and identify tasks that take longer than you expect.
By setting time constraints for these items, you will focus more and work more efficiently. Taking a break or doing a varying amount of work helps you stay focused.
5. Add a ‘Done’ List to Your To-Do List
Sometimes, unexpected tasks just pop up during the day. Jot them down in a separate list next to your to-dos for some extra satisfaction at the end of the day.
This will help you keep track of the work you need to get done on the day. And will help you be more satisfied with your work.
6. Don’t Strive for Perfection
When everything must be perfect, can anything ever be good enough? Probably not.
To become exceptional, you must fail repeatedly and learn from your mistakes. Look at every effort as an experiment – a valuable step on your journey, no matter what the outcome.
