Most Of Us Go Through Life Complaining That There Are Not Enough Hours In The Day Or That We Never Have Enough Time.
What if I told you that there ARE enough hours in the day, you just need to make the most of them? These three strategies will help you make the most of your time:
Have a Purpose
When you have a purpose, it gives you clarity on where you are going and keeps you on track. When you look at your daily “To-Dos”, do your “Have-Tos” align with your “Want-Tos”? If not, then it might be to realign.
Make Two Lists
At first, this might seem like you are wasting time. However, it will give you more perspective. In one column list the things that are important to you to get done. Leave the second column blank because this is where you will list any urgencies that come up. Evaluate the urgent matters and then deal with them as needed. Your “Important” column should always be prioritized.
The best thing you can do to maximize your time is to create a schedule that is predictable. The more routine and predictable your schedule is, the easier it will be to deal with unexpected urgent matters as they come up.
By implementing these strategies you will begin to regain control of your life and ultimately have more time for what is important to you.
