Time in Your Hand

Don’t Waste A Second: Simple Time Management Tips

Is time getting away from you? There are many people who have trouble with time management. But, that is all about to change; you are about to read some tips to help you better handle your time.

Way to manage time

Use a timer.

If focus is causing you issues, set a timer for the exact amount of minutes you currently have at your leisure.

As an example, if you know you have an hour to devote to a task, do so by setting your timer in 20-minute increments, and take a little break in between each one.

 

You cannot find a better way to manage time than using a calendar.

Many people like to use paper calendars that can be written on.

Others have a preference for the freedom that comes with an electronic calendar they can use on their phone or tablet.

It doesn’t matter what you use personally; the act of using one will help you manage your time much more effectively.

Deadlines

If you seem to always be a step or two behind, start being more mindful of deadlines.

Lack of awareness can have a cascading effect on your schedule.

On the other hand, if you keep up with deadlines appropriately, you’ll be able to avoid neglecting the larger matters and pace yourself.

When you have time management trouble, consider the ways you spend your time.

It’s important to use time wisely.

For example, you might set aside a specific time of day to return phone calls and check your email.

By paying attention to these items right away, you’re getting distracted from the task at hand.

 

Hand Tasks Off to Someone Else

Peruse your schedule.

Do you see some unnecessary activities there?

Are there tasks that you can hand off to someone else to do to free up time on your daily schedule?

One of the most used time management methods to learn is how to delegate.

When someone else takes over the task, you are free to get other items done.

Don’t Let Yourself Become Distracted

To make life more enjoyable, it’s important to not let yourself become distracted when you need to get things done.

Don’t let minor distractions sidetrack you from the task at hand.

There are those who will try to hijack your time by adding more tasks to the one you are already doing.

Stop this from happening.

Complete your current project before you begin a new one.
