Effective ways to work - 14 key time management technique for PG holders
We have 24-hours in a day. But, why does it seem that some people are able to get the most out of every minute of the day? Believe it or not, they don’t have the power to slow down time.
Want to know how you can become a master of time management as well? Start by using these 19 super-powerful time management tips.
1. Create a time audit.
First step you need to take is finding out where your time actually goes. You may believe that you only send 30 minutes on emails, but in reality that task is eating-up an hour of your day.
2. Set a time limit to each task.
I've found that setting a time limit to each task prevents me from getting distracted or procrastinating. For example, if I want to write an article for my blog, I give myself two hours. So if I started at 8am, I try to get it written by 10am.
3. Use a to-do-list, but don’t abandon tasks.
4. Plan ahead.
One of the worst things that you can do is wake-up without a plan for the day. Instead of focusing on what needs to be done, you wander aimlessly and take care of more trivial matters.
That’s why you should always plan ahead using one of these options;
The night before & First thing in the morning.
5. Eliminate half-work.
You’re writing a report, but stop randomly to check your phone for no reason.
You try out a new workout routine, but switch to a new program a couple of day later because you read about it online.
6. Change your schedule.
If you’re reading this article then it’s obviously because you want to discover some useful time management - and I’m more than happy to help you put. But, if you’re struggling with time management, the solution may be as simple as changing your schedule around.
For example, instead of sleeping-in until 6:30am, wake-up an hour earlier. Personally, I find 5:15am to be the most productive time of the day since it gives me time to exercise, plan-out my day, go through my emails, and even work on side projects without being disturbed.
7. Leave a buffer-time between tasks and meetings.
Jumping immediately from one task or meeting to the next may seem like a good use of your time, but it actually has the opposite effect.
8. Use an online calendar.
Calendars have long been a fundamental tool for time management. However, online calendars have taken this to the next level. That’s because you can access it from multiple devices, easily schedule meetings and appointments, set up reminders, create time blocks, and schedule recurring events.
Personally, I use Google Calendar. I think it’s the best. But Outlook and Apple Calendar also work well.
9. Stop being perfect.
When you’re a perfectionist, nothing will ever be good enough. That means you’ll keep going back to same task over and over again. How productive do you think your day will be as a result?
So, stop being perfect. It doesn’t exist. Do the best you can and move on.
10. Just say “No.”
I know that you don’t want to upset anyone. But you can only handle so much. If you already have a full plate then decline that dinner invitation or helping your colleagues on a project until you have the spare time.
11. Don’t waste time waiting.
I’ll be honest. I can’t stand waiting. It’s not that I’m impatient. It’s just that I know that this is time that could be better spent elsewhere.
However, instead of wasting this time, I’ve found ways to make the best of it. For example, while sitting in a waiting room I’ll read an inspirational book, listen to a podcast
13. Find inspiration.
When I’m dragging, I use inspirational sources like a TED Talk or biography. It’s a simple way to reignite that fire to get me motivated and back-on-track.
14. Batch similar task together.
When you have related work, batch them together. For example, don’t answer your emails and phone calls throughout the day. Schedule a specific time to handle these tasks.
