Everything in our modern world is hurried, from the moment we get up to the moment we leave for work or prepare a supper for our families. There doesn't seem to be enough time in the day, given how quickly life moves along, to schedule anything extra for a vacation or self-care. Instead, many of us are experts at multitasking. If you can actually focus on both projects at once, this looks like a terrific skill. Usually, it entails splitting our attention between two activities, with neither gaining our whole concentration. By using efficient time management strategies, we may both increase our productivity and free up more time for our personal lives.
There are numerous time management methods and approaches that can help us take back control of our lives and add hours to our already busy schedules. It's difficult to see how that is even achievable when you constantly have deadlines, piles of papers, and projects to complete. Setting aside 15 minutes during your most active cycle is a method for managing overwhelm.
Ask yourself, am I an early bird or a late owl? Your productivity cycle starts once you decide when your optimal energy level occurs. That is the best time to find a moment to plan your day.
Write down all the tasks you have to complete, choose which ones can be handed off, or schedule upcoming deadlines on a calendar. Next, prioritize your tasks to determine which ones are high and low importance. Decide which tasks are urgent and which are not. Establish an accurate time estimate for each task—guesses are obviously a wonderful place to start—and remember to allow time for breaks and interruptions. Make sure you work on high-priority tasks that match with your productivity energy cycles when you assign a time of day to each task. Work on high-priority tasks before the less urgent ones and continue to go down your list.
Why not try this strategy out? Make this plan for a few weeks and check to see whether you have more free time. You may find you have spare time to relax and plan your future vacations thanks to your great time management techniques.
