Do you find yourself losing your precious minutes during your day because of bad time management? Looking for some ways to make more use of your time? Sometimes the day just seems to get away from you before you can even bat an eye, and it seems that you don’t have time to accomplish some important tasks. You can avoid the problem of running out of time by following the tips for making more use of your precious time. You’ll find more time in your day you didn’t even know existed!
1. Make a schedule
Creating a schedule will help itemize and prioritize the day. If you know what exactly you should do during the day, your day will run smoothly and you won’t waste your precious time. I love to plan my day! I always create a schedule and try to stay on track and make more use of my time!
2. Set a few goals per day to accomplish
I usually set three or four main goals every day to accomplish, and tackle the biggest, most important or most time-consuming task first. Set a few goals per day and try to accomplish all of them! This will help you not to waste your time!
3. Don’t skip lunch breaks
What do you usually do during your lunch break? Perhaps, you run errands, pay bills, or even catch up on a few episodes of your favorite TV show, forgetting to eat your lunch. But you should never skip eating in order to get everything done on your lunch break! Remember it!
One of the best ways to make more use of your precious time is multitasking! Multitasking is very easy, usually the perfect solution, and can save plenty of time during your day. But don’t do too many things at once because you will feel overloaded.
5. Get rid of all your time-wasters
All those time wasters take up more of your precious minutes, so you should try to get rid of them! Social media, stopping to chat for thirty or more minutes with co-workers, or browsing the clearance an extra 20 minutes on your lunch break, these are some of the biggest time-wasters. Find out what your time-wasters are and get rid of them! This will help save you extra time during the day.
6. Little clips of time
There are many little clips of time, which are thrown away throughout the day. Time spent on hold, between commutes, and waiting rooms, you could be throwing away several hours without even knowing it! Why not use these times to make a grocery list, make phone calls, read your homework, or catch up on Facebook?
7. Learn to control social media interruptions
Well, I have a really bad habit of leaving my Facebook page open while I’m at work. It really slows down the progress! So I began creating certain times to check my Facebook notifications. If you’re expecting a very important email or call, try to steer clear of social media during the day.
Time is very precious and it’s nothing to be wasted, so follow these tips and make more use of your time. Do you have any tips for making more use of time? Share them please!
