Time Management - Three Simple Steps to Becoming More Organized

When it comes to organizing your time effectively, there are a few time management tips which can help to make a significant difference to your ultimate success. The following organizing tips will help you to set your goals, and show you the importance of time management itself.

1. Firstly, accept reality. You are only human, and there are only twenty four hours in a day. You need to eat, drink, sleep, relax and go to the toilet. So make sure that whatever you do, and whatever you agree to take on, is realistic. Nobody will be impressed by someone taking on a huge amount of work and then either failing to complete it, or submitting sub standard results.

2. Be honest to yourself about the ways in which you misuse your time. We all do it; we all have those tactics which delay the inevitable onset of work - whether it is checking emails, reading the news headlines or making a cup of coffee. We need to admit how and when we waste time, so that we can begin to address those problems.

3. Set yourself simple and realistic time management goals. When it comes to time management, to do it well you need to do it yourself, because only you truly know your inner tactics and weaknesses. Effective time management is about addressing your own needs. Once you have accepted your delay tactics, try to deal with one or two of those.

For example - if you use making a cup of coffee as a way of procrastinating, then set yourself a limit of the number of times you can make a cup of coffee during the day - or even get a bigger mug so you need fewer trips to the kitchen!

Remember, time management is a misnomer; really it is about managing your own behavior.
