Sand Drops

Use a timer.

When you aren’t able to focus, set a timer for a limited time.

For example, set a timer for work time and then take a break.


Plan in Advance

A good time management practice is to do things one day in advance.

If you can, be sure you start working on what you need to do tomorrow before the day arrives.

As your day ends, create tomorrow’s to-do list.

In this way, you will be well prepared for the challenges of the day.


Don’t Waste Time

Do not waste your time during the day.

Estimate the amount of time each task will take, and set a completion time.

This can help you improve your time management.

As you cultivate good time-management skills, you may start to find gaps of free time in your day.

You can either employ these “bonus hours” to work on new tasks or take personal time to rest and relax.



Take Review of  Your Time

Begin each day by reviewing your schedule and making any necessary modifications.

When you have a clear picture of the tasks you want to accomplish at the start of each day, your days will be more productive.

Think over the day and make sure you have enough time.

If effectively managing time is a problem for you, try to analyze what the results of your present work process are.

Try to determine why, for example, you leave many tasks unfinished.

To use your time efficiently, you need to identify what you are doing right and the things you’re doing wrong.


Planning a day ahead will help you un-stress.

This is accomplished via a detailed plan of action or a to-do list for the next day.

Doing this allows you to feel more relaxed and not rushed, leaving plenty of energy left over for the following day.

Prioritize Your Tasks

Take care of the most important items on your list first.

Often, we waste time performing tasks of little consequence. I

f you prioritize everything, you can use your energy getting important things done.

Make your list of tasks that need to be done and prioritize them.


Be Smart in Time Management

When you find yourself managing your time poorly, consider for a moment how you’re putting your time to use.

Use your time in a smart way.

Check your messages at designated times only.

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


Prepare Your Schedule in the Morning

Take time to plan the day each morning.

Grab a writing utensil and paper to jot down what you plan to do that day and the amount of time you plan to take to finish each item.

This will help you plan your day efficiently.


Avoid Interruptions

Unless you really have to do so, it’s not good to answer the phone, instant messages, or text while you’re busy with other things.

Every time you are interrupted, it gets harder to refocus on the subject at hand.

Once you have finished what you were doing, then you can reply to texts or return phone calls.

Staying on task can really improve your life.

Don’t get distracted by other things that pop up during a single task.

You may find that others try to have you work at a different time before you have finished your task.

Do not let them do this.


Focus on a Single Task

Complete your current task before beginning another task.

Be aware that it really is not possible to do everything you want to do.

In fact, it’s almost impossible.

Chances are, most of your results are produced by a small percentage of our thoughts.

Finish as much as you can but try to remain realistic about what you can accomplish.



When you put these tips to good use, you will notice how much more successful your day is.

The more organized your day is, the easier it will be to get through everything you want to attend to.

Use these tips to create change.
