Every one of us has the same number of seconds, minutes or hours in a day. The difference between you and the successful people like Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg is the amount of time you spend on tasks that need mindless productivity in comparison with the time you spend in taking decisions or performing tasks. Some of you have to leave the tasks, as you have no time.
You know you can do all the tasks well with proper time management. It is you who have to manage your time. For your support, here are some effective time management tips:
1. Master the art of scheduling your works
Our education system does not teach kids how to schedule all the works of a day. With a purposeful and focused schedule, a concrete plan will support you bring success. However, the skill to schedule tasks requires you to make habits rather than leaning to implement a made module. You will end up doing a lot more things that you had desired if you have a routine in order.
2. Perform the most important task first
As you wake up in the morning, try to find out the works that are very important for you. Start your day with accomplishing the most important work. This is a crucial step. As you do it, your day already has started on a successful note. In the morning, your willpower is at the highest level. The morning is the most productive time and offers you the opportunity to do the tasks without any distractions.
3. Adjourn the ideas/works that are not worthy
Keep in mind that all the ideas that you have in your mind are not worthy. You need to keep those ideas closed in your heart until you realize they will value completely to your effort. Pursue the ideas that stick in your mind, but work on those that worth your effort.
4. The present time is good to achieve your goals
Never wait for the right time to do something. Leaving the work for the right time will increase your workload and you will have more tasks to do. You must do the task as it comes in your way, as the present time is the best time to do any task and you don’t know what will be in forthcoming days/time.
5. Limit multitasking to perform better
These days, multi-tasking is a must-have skill. However, many recent studies advise that we do better when we are focused on one work/task at a time and multi-tasking causes a person to take a longer time to complete a task, leading to more mistakes. You can plan your time of a working day and complete all the tasks one by one, but not do many tasks at a time.Disclaimer – The views and opinions mentioned here are the writers’ own thoughts or based on the talks held with some of the professionals of respective fields.
