Time Management-Your guide to success

Hey folks,hope all of you are doing great!

In continuation of my blog posts on 8th May 2020 pertaining to 7 steps to effective time management, I have penned a few more thoughts that came to my mind.

Step 1 – Get organized

Step one regards organization, which involves making a list of daily tasks, listing them in order of priority, and ticking them off when finished. It is better to start small and build a routine that works for you. Take a note about which activity consumes the most time and ask yourself if it is relevant.

Avoid multi-tasking,you’ll end up not doing anything constructive.

Step 2 – Set a goal

Step two requires the individual to ask himself what it is he would like to achieve and how it might look.

Step 3 – Take help of technology

Step three is the incorporation of technology into a business. The latter could involve replacing physical meetings with video confereneing, long emails and instant messaging.

Step 4 – Delegation & outsourcing

Step four is delegation and outsourcing

Look at your list of business goals and activities; identify what you will not be able to do and what takes valuable time

Step 5-Handling emails

Step five is to set aside 20 to 30 minutes slots in the daily schedule for emails – prioritizing the important messages to folders and flags and replying according to the level of importance

Step 7-Stop procrastinating

Step seven, is to curb procrastination. To do this, individuals must ensure that they organise their priorities and remain focused on their goal and breaking down large tasks to smaller, more manageable chunks

Step 8-Take action & review

Step eight is to take action and review. If you feel you are not getting the results you want regardless of how hard you push – then it’s time to pause, reflect, and take a look at what is working and what needs to be changed
