Time is the one thing everyone gets an equal amount of each day. Yet some people manage to get through their days feeling they have accomplished their daily tasks and goals and other people crawl into bed at the end of each day feeling like they have been trapped in a 15-hour spin cycle in their clothes dryer.
- Write down everything you have to do daily, weekly, and annually.
- Prioritize each list.
- Choose which tasks can be delegated/outsourced.
- Consider “done, but not perfect” better than “not done at all.”
Remember: You won’t magically get more time in a day when you put time management techniques into action. But you will be able to more effectively manage the time you have. And what you get done and how you feel after you have done what you wanted to do that is what will make all the difference.
