10 Tips for Time Management


Why are many of us seeking hyper-productivity? Why must we feel that multi-tasking is a good thing? Why are we running around, scurrying from task to task, organizing things, checking cell phones for notifications, messages or emails, with that ear bud jammed in place, having conversations while trying to perform other tasks at the same time? Who says we have to multi-task? Do we really accomplish anything this way? Do we really finish our tasks with complete satisfaction this way?

Why are we functioning with so many open tabs on a daily basis? Why the unnecessary stress?

What this behaviour really leads to is mindless productivity. This is the constant need to be doing something, regardless of the importance of the task, which often leads to wasting time on menial tasks. Who says we have to be constantly doing something?

It’s much easier to focus on a few essential tasks each day and complete them properly and with complete satisfaction. Your daily life will gradually improve, leading to a more satisfied and contented life.

Here’s how you can achieve effective time management with these ten, simple tips.

Feeling in focus and motivated is rewarding. We appreciate what we're involved with. Rushing from task to task leads to confusion and frustration. Building in down-time between tasks is important and allows our mind a break. Go for a short walk, flip through a magazine or perform a mind clearing exercise. You'll be more efficient and productive in the long-run and complete your task with satisfaction.

The quickest way to overwhelm ourselves is to think of our massive to-do lists, where we fall into procrastination, postponing the dreaded tasks. No amount of thought will make this list any shorter. Instead, prioritize the essential daily tasks from the non-essential and make the essential tasks routine so they become daily habitual tasks. You'll feel more in control and productive in the long-run.
