Every day, every week, every month, every year we may want to accomplish certain things and it begins with a mindset to do so, along with steps to implement too. The important part of reaching these moments is setting up management skills with our time. Let’s take a moment together to discuss, “Are we using our time well?”
The feeling of, ‘there is never enough time in the day’ can be overwhelming. Perhaps you plan out your day, but then you realize as the time is going by, I will not be able to accomplish all the goals that I set out to complete. It is important that you do not allow yourself to become discouraged by these moments but instead take a few moments to evaluate the way you are using your time to accomplish the set goals you have.
When we learn to ‘manage our time well,’ we are setting up a lifestyle that will include specifics on what is a priority and organize ourselves to get it done. This may take us dividing up our time with specific activities as to fit in all that we would like to accomplish. You have more skills than you realize, I promise you that, and have the power to live life in a way that makes you happy (and healthy!).
Although this takes strategy to accomplish, organizing our time well will enable us to work smarter – not harder – and in turn will allow us to get more done even with less time even with other pressing matters. Let’s be real, life happens. There may be unexpected interruptions that will disrupt what we organize for ourselves to accomplish. But overall, when you set up specific approaches to accomplish goals with the time you have, I believe you will see that you are able get more done.
Here are 10 things you can begin to do to be more effective with your time:
1-allocate your time
2-Value your time
3-Multitask by prioritizing your time out from highest importance to least
4-Set reasonable goals with the time you have
5-Everyday be deliberate about your time and in accomplishing your goals
6-Stay focused on each thing you would like to accomplish, even with distractions
7-Use timers to maintain finishing specific tasks and to avoid procrastination
8-Take breaks because stress and anxiety can impact your success in accomplishing goals
9-Avoiding tasks can only make you more overwhelmed, so stick to your set goal times.
10-Perhaps put on your calendar set goal accomplishments. Remember to be realistic in accomplishing these goals.
‘Managing our time well’ requires us to be more organized with our days. I can admit to this personally, I had to make several adjustments in my life over the years in order to improve important areas impacting growth. It’s learning to allocate between activities and maximizing our productivity in achieving goals. Let’s remember to take care of ourselves as we are attempting to do better with our time. This may include things such as remembering to eat properly throughout the day, doing things we enjoy, exercising and taking quiet moments in prayer. Accept the things you are able to get done within a realistic timeframe. Take breaks and evaluate where you are and how you can continue to complete what you began. Remember to implement timers to help you and put on your calendar set dates you would like to get these things done.
These are some purposeful moments you can initiate to be better at managing your time. I would love for you to let me know how these effective tools can help you with your time. Every day we can each do better with the time we have been given. It’s important to be honest with yourself and realistic in making changes to accomplishing these goals within the time we would like to get them done. Tell me the adjustments you want to make in order to manage your time better.
