Time management is an elusive concept. There are numerous articles, videos, and guides out there that provide time management techniques that you can use to more effectively and efficiently manage your time. Time management is not just about managing your schedule, and allocating your time. It’s about planning, focus, and most importantly, using tools and techniques that actually work for you. Productivity and time management are not a one-size-fits-all process.
We’re going to talk about three simple, yet really powerful, time management techniques that you can incorporate into your life, so you can work simply, and live fully.
1: start by identifying high and low value tasks. Now, high value tasks are those things that help you achieve your goals, advance in your career, and build the life of your dreams. They’re important and meaningful, and they often require significant amounts of your brain power to complete. Low value tasks are those mindless tasks. You can do them on autopilot with minimal thinking.
2: automate. Automate recurring tasks. A lot of our low value tasks are actually recurring tasks, and these tasks can be done automatically and quickly. For example, if you send out the same type of email all the time, make a template, so all you have to do is fill in the blanks. By doing this, you’ll be able to save time and your effort.
And the last tip: do a weekly review. Do a weekly review of all your tasks. This will help you avoid work surprises and interruptions. And it can keep you focused on what you need to complete in a given week.
Improving your time management is all about making small lifestyle tweaks each day. These small behavioral changes can help you be your best.
