What is Time Management?
Time management refers to how you take proper control of your time which enables you to engage in your required activities. The fact is most of us don’t really know how to manage our time. Sometimes we may plan to do a task but at the end of the day we don’t end up fulfilling our goal which sometimes hurt us at the end. Below are the tips that can help you manage your time.
THE LISTED TIPS FOR TIME MANAGEMENT
AVOID PROCRASTINATION: Shiv Khera once said in his book titled “You can win” that one of the habit that consumes time is procrastinating. Avoid postponing what are capable of doing today to another day. Procrastination has great impact on the effect of time management. Sometimes you are have the opportunity to do something, but you do think there is more time and this makes you postpone such activities. A great disadvantage of procrastination is that you may not end up doing what you wanted to do because you may later be occupied by unexpected circumstances. Try as much as possible to avoid procrastinating and do your activities immediately you have the chance to do so.
SLEEPING LATE: I will not want to make this imperative upon you because our body system differs regarding sleeping late at night. Some don’t get comfortable whenever they sleep late at night. The fact is that sleeping late helps you to elongate your time which gives you the chance of doing more activities in the night. Most successful people of today adopted the habit of sleeping late at night because they are always fixed up during the day.
WAKING UP EARLY: Do you still sleep and wake up around 10AM? I think you should avoid doing this excessively. Whenever you wake up early, you have an advantage of gaining more time to perform your activities. Try as much as possible to wake up early as it adds more time to your day. This is one of the best tips for time management. AVOID
DOING NON PRODUCTIVE ACTIVITIES : This is the category almost everyone who complains fall in. People of today occupy themselves with irrelevant things that doesn’t add any value to them. Some people watch non profitable movies for 16 hrs, surf the internet by making non profitable activities on their social media app or sites for 8 hours and you expect them to have time to perform their required activities?. The fact is you have to do away with things that doesn’t add more to you and replace it with things that adds more value to you. You can later return back to your enjoyment after you’ve completed your required tasks. When people say they are busy or they don’t have time, ask them what is keeping you busy? Most of them don’t have genuine reasons to explain their busy nature. Always try as much as possible to avoid doing things that doesn’t profit you or add value to you.
MAKE A TIME TABLE: One of the best ways to manage your time is to have a plan. You can’t have a plan without you having your map or time table because it serves as a guide or path which directs you. Try as much as possible to write out some mission you wish to accomplish for the day and write the time you wish to get them done. Paste this on your wall to serve as a reminder for you. The more you see this, the more you remember you gave your tasks and this will surely help you manage your time and fulfil your goals. I conclude with Bruce Lee’s word which states that “If you really want to enjoy life, learn to manage your time” Thanks for reading and I hope this helps.
