Time Management Secrets

Productivity (11)      TimeManagement (2)      Efficiency (1)     
We all have the same 24 hours in a day but how do some people manage to achieve far more than others?

It all comes down to time management.

Luckily those with productivity down pat have shared their secrets to getting more out of their daily schedules. Here are some fabulous time management secrets.

Once only policy
Whether you are addressing an email or a question directed to you by an employee, apply a ‘once only’ policy. Read an email and action it. Pick up some paperwork and file it.

The act of re-visiting, re-reading and re-doing tasks is a waste of valuable time.

Make a master list
Don’t just make a to-do list, make a master list which not only lists everything that needs to be done, but clearly highlights the big rocks, the highest priority tasks, and ensure they are scheduled to get done!

Take notes
Sometimes the brightest of ideas come when you least expect it. The key here is to take notes.

Whether you carry around a notebook or use a smartphone or other device, make sure you document every idea or thought that comes to mind as well as snippets of important conversations, quotes or anything inspirational that strike a chord.

Task completion is necessary
Not only must you allocate appropriate time in your diary to accomplish tasks according to your priorities, but also you will feel a greater sense of achievement plus work more productively if you complete each job before moving onto the next.

Whilst multi tasking may on the outset appear to be an efficient option it can lead to error and lower quality output. Focus and complete.

Establish a routine
When you find a pattern that works for you, follow it. Everyone will have a routine that is most optimum for them. It could mean your day starts with some exercise, followed by a block of time catching up on emails and prioritizing the day ahead.

When you become the master of your day, ensuring you also schedule in time for the unexpected, you will be in control and make time work for you.

Time management is achievable.

There are many different strategies and techniques, which you can adopt and introduce into your life, but the most important aspect to remember is that you need to work out what works for you. Everyone has his or her own set of tools.

What are your time management secrets?
