Visitors: 189

Whether you are a lawyer, an employee, President of a huge company, in the military, a housewife, student or a business owner, you're probably wondering how to create time to do all the things that you need to do!

Time is hard to find these days, and many people don't realize it's the root of most stresses.

Poor time management increases job stress, decreases your level of job satisfaction strains your relationships and even takes away your sleep!

Now, if you are suffering from poor time management, here are some tips to help you improve your time management skills right now.

1. Make a to-do list.

A to-do list will organize your jumbled thoughts by allowing you to write it all out and decide on what requires more priority due to a close deadline, for example.

So start by listing yours, breaking down the bigger ones. Then, label each according to their priority, paying close attention to deadlines and making sure to think over which are really the most urgent and important.

Now you can get started on your things to do!

2. Take notes

You can do this in addition to your to-do list if you prefer. But by taking notes, you are pretty much reminding yourself of all sorts of ideas you might have throughout the day.

How many times do you come up with a great idea for your next project only to forget it?

Jot ideas down right away and don't rely on yourself to remember it tomorrow. This will save you tons of time spent in trying to rethink something you've already thought about!

So get started with this habit by carrying around a small notepad or tape recorder, nothing big. Start noting down your valuable thoughts.

3. Learn to focus.

Figure out what needs to be done now and focus! Don't stress over your boyfriend's upcoming birthday, dinner with your mom or your child's baseball game - just focus on the task at hand!

Avoid being open to interruptions. Once you focus completely on what you need to do NOW, you'll be able to get it done quicker than if you were distracted by things that are less important.

Doing this alone will increase your productivity and save you tons of time spent in switching tasks or in asking “Uh, where was I. . . "
