5 Ways To Manage Your Time & Make Your Deadlines
Time management is a skill learned over time, and even then requires effort and discipline to implement. It’s something we use in our everyday lives both professionally and personally. It is a tough skill to learn, but we can get there together!
1. Write Out Your Goals
Before you can decide where to spend your time, you need to know what they are before you can plan them out. It is a good way to visualize and really understand where you need to focus your efforts.
You want to spend the most time on the projects that matter more. You don’t want to spend all your time on unimportant tasks and run the risk of missing a bigger deadline. Decide what order of importance things belong in and schedule them accordingly.
3. Learn How To Say “No.”
It is so difficult to turn things and opportunities down especially when you really want to help out your colleagues or impress your boss. However, you’ve got to learn how to be realistic about how much you can handle. Remember that quality is always better than quantity.
Probably one of the biggest tips you can learn is to prioritize your sleep. Having a sleep schedule optimizes your body and brain function and helps you produce better work. Getting to bed at a reasonable time and getting up early will help you make the most of your day.
5. Limit Screen Time
I know, I know. It’s tough to pry yourself away from your phone, especially during a busy workday. However, it is necessary to really focus on the important tasks at hand. One of the best ways to make sure you get a good night’s rest and really unwind from the day is to put that phone on the charger and spend quality time doing things that help you relax from a workday.
