Time is such a valuable asset to us all. Consider what your time is worth to your business or family and then imagine the how you feel when that time is wasted on activities that do not give you a fair exchange of value.
Here are some tips to help you master your time management:
- Where is your time going? Do a time log on a daily, weekly, and perhaps monthly basis. Write your tasks down exactly so you can find the real time-wasters. Awareness of your actual situation is critical to improving how you use your time.
- Create a new daily routine – 90% of all human behavior is habitual. “If you keep doing what you are doing, you will keep getting what you are getting.” “When patterns are broken new worlds will emerge.”
- Prioritize and stay focused. What one or two items on your to-do list must absolutely be finished? What are your priorities today, this week, and this month at home and at work? Share these priorities with others.
- Reduce interruptions by creating stronger boundaries. What are your ideas regarding the establishment of boundaries? As a reference and helper I like the book – “The Power of The Positive No” by William Ury.
