Tip #1 - Daily Goals:
We all see and hear the word "goals" so often and they are used so frequently throughout every self-help discussion, article, or book out there...and for good reason! This is because setting goals gives your life direction. It is the cornerstone to achieving everything you want in life, and this is especially true for building positive time management skills.
As you begin each day, you should spend at least 10-15 minutes to sit down and write out your most important goals for the day on paper. It is important to write them in present tense. When you make it a habit to do this each day, you are actually programming your subconscious mind to accept that these goals are quite attainable. Not only does this stimulate your mind but you will also feel more alert. Almost like magic, you will begin to see more and more doors open for you.
Tip #2 - Daily Planning of Activities:
The basics of time management, whether it be in your personal life or on the job, lies in your ability to effectively set priorities on all of the day's tasks that lie ahead. Before bed each night is a great time to plan out the next day's activities that you wish to accomplish. Mark each task with a priority level that corresponds with the importance of when the tasks need to be completed. When you are carrying out the tasks, always begin with the most important job first, working single-handedly until that project is done. Then, and only then, do you move on to the next task. It's also important to set limits on the time to be spent on completing each task within your daily plan. Have deadlines set for each of your activities on your list, even if it is a small task that will take just 10 minutes to complete.
Tip #3 - Proper Exercise and Daily Quality Nutrition:
You may be asking what in the world does diet and exercise have to do with effective time management? Your good health has everything to do with getting more quality work done and at faster rates, while getting more quality time out of your life as well. Time management, as you will come to learn, is a lifestyle, and if your goals in life are to be obtained, then they can only be enjoyed by your having good health. It's no secret that our health is the most important quality in life that we can have. In essence, by disciplining yourself to eat healthy nutritious meals, and by maintaining a daily workout routine, you will achieve the highest possible levels of health and wellbeing in your life to enjoy for years to come.
