Effective Way To Manage Your Time

Apr 20, 2008
The number of goals that any individual accomplishes depends solely on the way in which one chooses to utilize one's time. The concept of how to use time differs for different people. According to their priorities, they choose to do certain things over others. That is not to say that everyone prioritizes their life's duties in the right manner. This is why so many people find themselves unable to complete tasks that they have been striving to complete for long periods of time.

Time management requires proper planning. There are several areas that need work. There are several duties that one needs to perform on a day to day basis. To accurately prioritize these duties and then to allot them time spans requires some organization. The following are some of the things you may want to consider before drawing up a time table of a schedule:
  • Aims and Objectives: It is important to determine what the activities that need to be done are and the amount of time you have. But it is more important to determine your objective and rationale for doing those things. There are several activities we continue to do out of habit, which do not bear any fruitful results, but waste a lot of time. These need to be identified and eliminated.
  • Time Management Tools: A proper idea of your goals needs to be clear in your head. External tools can only help to enhance that focus. Get hold of diaries, planers and reminders to help you keep a track of the activities that you had planned. This helps you to follow the schedule better.
  • Consistency: Be consistent with your work. Once you let lethargy creep into your daily schedule, it will be difficult to get rid of it. Do your day to day job on time. Don't let jobs spill into other time slot. Clear backlog regularly.
  • Energy: This aspect has a lot to do with your biological needs. Some people are inherently energetic and feel fresh with a short nap because they get a deep and peaceful sleep. Others are light sleepers so short hours of sleep do not help rejuvenate them. It is important to identify the kind of rest you need. Determine the energy patter cycle. Also find out the time of the day when your concentration is at maximum. Work around that time, and take adequate rest. Try not to feel stressed. And find out ways to relax.
  • Organization: This involves both mental and physical organization. Be clear in your head about what jobs you have to finish and be mentally prepared for them. Also keep your work space and living area clutter free. Clutter and mess have adverse impact on concentration. Simple things like putting things back from where you pulled them out will save you from the trouble of clearing the mess later. It will also help you find those things again easily.
