5 Important Tips for Time Management

5 Important Tips for Time Management :

Time management is a struggle for many people these days. We have so much to do in both our work and personal lives – and so little time to make it all happen. If you are a manager, executive, or startup leader, time management becomes even more of a challenge: You have to juggle both your team’s needs and your own.

There are many ways to improve your time management skills. Plenty of tips and techniques are available to aid you in todays time. Here are five of my favorites:

1 Make a Schedule – and Stick to It & know your Priorities:

:

Start improving your time management skills by organizing your days and weeks in advance. There will always be surprises, but it’s likely that you have an idea about the kinds of tasks and responsibilities you have to deal with every day.

To efficiently execute any project, you need to decide which stages or components of the project are most important to your business and the impact of each stage/component in the short, medium, and long terms.
In other words, you must figure out which tasks or activities will deliver the best returns. That way, you can prioritize these over less important tasks.

2. Set Some Boundaries


If you want that your team and family to let you work in peace, you need to inform them when you aren’t available. People can’t read your mind, so it’s up to you to set boundaries when necessary. You don’t want to sound rude, so be sure to communicate your limits in a polite – but direct – manner.
To make this work, you will have to make a few things clear to everybody:
– Which hours of the day you don’t want to be disturbed at all, except in case of an emergency.
– What counts as an “emergency.”
– When you are free to take quick phone calls or answer simple requests.

3.Account for Good Distractions

No one can work for hours on end. We all need breaks to help us stay productive. The best thing to do is to accept that distractions will happen and try to incorporate them into your schedule.

Block out some downtime during your schedule every day. This may mean setting aside a few minutes here or there for a cup of coffee, a walk in the corridor, or a trip outside for some fresh air.
You can also use your breaks to try some stress management techniques, like breathing exercises, meditation, or yoga.

4. Get some Tech Help

There are many time management apps available for both Android and iOS devices. These can help you boost your productivity and ensure that you are doing what has to be done.

For example If your goal is to keep your calendar in order, download Cal or aCalendar.

5.Never Procrastinate


If it can be done today, do it today. This golden rule should be your motto if you want to make the most of your time.
Take it a step further: If something in your schedule changes, and you find yourself with extra time before the end of the day, start on the next day’s tasks without thinking twice. It’s much better to finish your week earlier on Friday than it is to get stuck working on a last-minute project.
Time management requires discipline, planning, a strong attitude, and the help of a few good tech tools. But if you get it right, it will definitely pay off in terms of higher productivity and lower stress levels.
Give these tips a try and see what works for you. Your team, your partners, your clients, and even your family and friends will be much happier to be around you when you’re relaxed and on top of things.
