Time Management Tips

Posted by Jennifer Camacho on Fri, Mar 18, 2011

If you have ever felt overwhelmed by the number of items on your “to do” list or wished for more hours of the day, learning to manage your time could be extremely beneficial By learning to efficiently manage your time, you can be more productive while aiming to achieve a work-life balance.  

Here are a few tips to help you manage your time:

1.  Identify your short and long term goals. – Don’t set lofty goals that cannot be accomplished within the amount of time you have. Instead, set realistic goals – tasks that can be done in the near future and tasks that can be completed gradually over a set amount of time.

2.  Prioritize – Don’t try to accomplish too many tasks at one time. Evaluate your daily schedule and distribute your time evenly amongst tasks. Focus on those that need to be accomplished sooner rather than later, and work over time on the tasks that can be completed at a later date.

3.  Write out a daily and weekly schedule -   Keep track of what you have to do on a daily and weekly basis, but leave some wiggle room for things that may come up. By having a calendar or planner handy, you can schedule and reschedule as needed. Being prepared will keep you on track with your goals.

4.  Set reminders - Use the calendar or alarm feature in your email or on your smart phone for important daily reminders.

5.  Stay motivated – Post your goals somewhere you can see them so they will stay fresh in your mind.  Include pictures if and where appropriate – visualization is often a great motivator.

6.  Practice, Practice, Practice – Time management will come easily once you find your groove. Continue to work on your goals and practice these tips.

7.  Be positive – Slip-ups can be stressful, but are just an obstacle on the course. Take a breath, stay positive and get right back on track.
