“Time is the scarcest resource and unless it is managed nothing else can be managed.” -Peter Drucker
One’s success doesn’t come easy and it starts with productive use of time. When you have all the freedom to work whenever and wherever you want, it's easy to lose control over your time.
Ask yourself, how can I be more successful at managing my time? You only need to apply one powerful concept: conscious time management. That’s the reason why I carefully list down some of the tips below to somehow help make more productive use of it.
1. Objective Setting:
Have a clear purpose in mind before starting meetings. Your team will waste less time by getting back to work as soon as you meet your agenda.
Set objectives that are attainable and quantifiable. Utilize the SMART strategy when defining objectives. Basically, ensure the objectives you set are:
Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, Timely
2. Prioritizing Tasks:
This is the most important theme for everyone trying to manage their time. Without the urgency to balance your schedule, you won't feel motivated to manage your time at all.
You just have to do this even though you're not one to establish routines.
Organize assignments dependent on significance and desperation. For instance, take a glance at your day by day errands and figure out which are:
Significant and critical: Do these undertakings immediately.
Significant however not pressing: Decide when to carry out these responsibilities.
Dire yet not significant: Delegate these assignments if conceivable.
Not dire and not significant: Set these aside to do later.
3. Undertaking/Tasks Deadlines:
Setting time limitations for finishing errands encourages you to be more engaged and proficient. Putting forth the little additional attempt to settle on how much time you have to assign for each undertaking can likewise assist you with perceiving expected issues before they emerge. That way you can make arrangements for managing them.
For instance, expect you have to review five surveys in an ideal opportunity for a gathering. Notwithstanding, you understand that you'll just have the option to complete four of them in the time remaining before the gathering. In the event that you become mindful of this reality well ahead of time, you might have the option to effortlessly designate reviewing one of the audits to another person.
Nonetheless, on the off chance that you hadn't tried to do a period keep an eye on your errands already, you may have wound up not understanding your time issue until only an hour prior to the gathering. By then, it may be significantly harder to track down somebody to designate one of the surveys to, and harder for them to fit the undertaking into their day, as well.
Utilize your calendar for more long-term time management. Record the deadline times for ventures, or for activities that are important for finishing the general task. Consider which days may be ideal to devote to explicit assignments. For instance, you may need to plan a meeting to talk about what’s needed to be done for the day.
5. Quit Wasting Time:
It is vital to remove additional activities or tasks. Figure out what is significant and what merits your time. Also, put a time limit on tasks. Take another look at your time audit and identify tasks that take longer than you expect. By setting time constraints for these items, you will focus more and work more efficiently.
If you still find yourself going beyond these time limits, examine your workflow and eliminate little time-wasters like unscheduled breaks, the unnecessary errands/exercises open up a greater amount of your chance to be spent on truly significant things.
6. Effective and Compelling Planning:
Make sure you start every day with a clear idea of what you need to do – the main priority THAT DAY. Consider making it a habit to, at the end of each workday, go ahead and write out your “to-do” list for the next workday. That way you can get down to business the following morning.
And the end of the day, summarize the tasks you finished and the ones that did not, try to improve your times and your focus.
Also, it’s not a myth that environmental factors affect our efficiency and work process. Try and discover a spot that you will connect just with work. This way, it will be much easier for you to complete your tasks once you get there. Also, keep the place well-ordered and spotless!
