Manage Your Time Effectively
September 30, 2022

Many of us often get burnt out trying to do everything ourselves. For example, grocery shopping, keeping the house clean, taking care of our kids, providing transportation and making sure everyone gets where they need to go safely and on time, running errands, paying bills, preparing a nice meal for our family, planning entertainment and vacations for our families, doing the laundry, preparing for seasonal holidays, and so forth. The to-do list can go on and on.

After All- if you want it done right, you gotta do it yourself, right? How many times have we all heard that?

I’m sure you can think of more to get done but this to-do list already seems like a lot. And it can definitely affect how your day will go, especially if you work from home. For many people, this means multi-tasking. However, trying to do too many things at the same time can actually harm how productive you can really be.

To be more productive and get more done, you have to be intentional about how you use your time. Take action in preparing yourself better. Delegate some of your tasks to people who can help. Teamwork makes the dreamwork. This will help you focus better on other things and can boost your productivity level which ultimately should increase your overall well-being.

 Here Are 4 Simple Tips on How to Manage Your Time Effectively


1. Create a daily planner:

One of the best ways to manage your time is to make a list of all the things you want to accomplish for the day, starting from the simplest task to the most complex one or the most urgent to the least urgent matter. You don’t even need a fancy task management platform to track your progress. Grab a notebook and start writing out what you want to do. Keep it simple. Cross off the tasks that you have completed on your list. I’m a big planner! Make a plan and stick to it, daily!

The best way to get things done is to begin! 


2. Set time limits for each task:

Sometimes spending too much time on a particular task can impact how effective your day will be in completing the other tasks assigned for the day. Set time limits for each task and move to the next one when the time allocated for such a task has passed. This will help you manage other tasks for the day while you come back to the previous task with a refreshed mind and a new perspective on how to go about the task. Don’t get stuck on one thing too long! 

A good system shortens the road to your goals! 


3. Take away all distractions:

We live in an era where almost everything is with our gadgets and smartphones. We want to chat with our friends, check the latest trends, scroll on social media, and then before we realize what is happening, the time has passed away and we can’t get it back. Take away all your distractions and set your priorities right. You will be surprised at how many things you will achieve within the day when you manage your time better.

Focus on your goal. Don’t look in any direction but ahead! 


4. Delegate those tasks:

One of the most important ways to manage your time effectively is by delegating some of your tasks. This will create room for you to attend to other important things you want to get off your list. Trying to do too many things at the same time can put you in a position of stress-related issues and can affect your work and productivity level and will in turn affect your overall well-being.

I am not a product of my circumstances. I am a product of my decisions.
