Most Effective time management tips
"Time is not the main thing, and it's the only thing." Miles Davis
Do you feel like that there are not enough hours in a day? Everyone feels this way from time to time, whether a working parent, student, entrepreneur or anyone in this fast-paced world.
Now, let's think everyone has 24 hours a day, whether it's a successful or unsuccessful person. Then what separates? And the answer is time management skills.
Many things in our lives are outside our control, but how we spend our time is in our possession.
Using our time towards our goals will bring success and bring a sense of fulfillment.
There are a few time management tips that everyone can incorporate to achieve their goals.
- Set the goals in significant areas of life:- Once you set the goals in each area, such as health, wealth, career, relationship, spirituality, recreation. Set the SMART goals- specific, measurable, achievable, realistic, and timely. How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time, same with the goals. Break it down into small actionable steps and take action every single day. If you have not set the goals or are struggling to set the goals, then I want you to answer this question: What would you do if you knew that you had only six months to live?
- Make a to-do list and prioritize the most critical task: Every night before you go to bed, make a to-do list for the next day. Constantly ask yourself the most valuable use of time and tackle the most critical tasks. If you don't plan for a day, you will waste your time unproductive work, which does not add value to your life.
- Time Logbook: Keep a detailed track of where your time goes. Ask yourself, does it add value to your goals? It would be best if you watched your time. Self-discipline is critical.
- Concentration: Give 100% attention to whatever you are doing, whether you are at work, or taking a shower, or driving. When you are with your family, give 100% undivided attention. Wherever you are, be there.
- Learn to say" No": Do not be eager to please everyone. Saying no was the hardest one for me. Get comfortable saying no; when you say no, that means you are saying yes to something else, which could be family time, exercise, or much-needed sleep.
Time is a limited resource; use it wisely. Each day you get 86400 seconds in your checking account; you have to spend it all in one day. You can't carry over to the next day. Utilize every second efficiently and productively. If you fail to deposit, the loss is yours.
Remember, yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift. That's why it calls the PRESENT, so use it in the right way.
