4 Time Management Tips To Try Today
We’re all so busy these days that it’s no surprise that many of us feel stressed out, harried and bogged down at work. With so much to achieve by the end of each day, it can often feel as though we’re fighting an uphill battle… but with a few new time management tricks up your sleeve you’ll soon feel far more positive about the day ahead. Here are a few ideas to try out this week at work.
Avoid instant messaging
If you’re in the middle of something important and the phone rings or you see an email drop into your inbox, think about ignoring it until you’re ready to deal with it. Just because the phone is ringing doesn’t mean you have to answer it. You don’t need to give people your immediate attention unless it forms a vital part of the business you’re running. Schedule some time each day to answer emails and return phone calls instead.
You probably don’t have the time in the day to achieve everything that needs doing so prioritising the most important jobs first is essential. Get through these and then see what you have left over time-wise at the end of the day that could be used on some of the smaller jobs.
Make sure you only take on jobs you know you have the time to do and the ones that are truly the most important. Don’t say yes to everything!
Avoid social media where possible
These days, one of the biggest drags on productivity is social media… so put your phone away, close your Facebook browser and really concentrate on the task at hand. Reward yourself once it’s done with five minutes on social media.
