Time Management Strategies For Saving Loads Of Time

Apr 15, 2008
Not having enough time is a common problem that many people suffer from. You may feel stressed and frustrated because you're constantly chasing the clock trying to get everything done. Don't you sometimes wish that you could have a bit more time?

Although there are only 24 hours in a day, instead of wishing for more time, how about identifying where you can save some time. Here are two strategies so that you can free up some of your time, leaving you able to accomplish more towards your goals and perhaps enjoy some leisure time.

1. Eliminate the time wasters in your day. Although you may have lots to get done each day, its surprisingly easy to get caught up in activities that actually waste your time. Some tasks can appear to be important and unless they are completely in alignment with the goals you want to achieve, I suggest that you question their necessity. There's also the time wasters such as drawn out telephone calls, interruptions as people just drop by for some help. Many people also find it difficult to stay focused on their tasks or they lack direction so waste quite a bit of time jumping from one thing to another. As there are many different time wasters and different ones affect different people, I invite you to identify specifically what wastes your time and eliminate it. Even if you just pick one time waster for now, you can work in eliminating others later.

2. Set a time limit for each task. Tasks often take longer to complete than they need to and setting a realistic but slightly tight time limit can really help you to work more productively. I'm sure you can think of times when a task has taken ages and yet if you'd set yourself a time limit on it, I bet you know that you could have got it done and done well in that time. Tasks that are allowed an indefinite amount of time often take far too long, robbing you of your precious time. Time that could be spent more productively or enjoyably. Give each task a realistic time limit, set an alarm and then put 100% of yourself into completing the task in that time.

So, now you have two time management strategies here that could easily save you lots of time each and every day. I encourage you to put at least one of these into action today.

Just imagine how good you will feel with a bit more time to enjoy.
