Do you ever wonder where the day went? We all know time is the most precious resource, yet most of us don’t seem to value it enough. If you’re the kind of person who wants to get more out of their time and life, we have some tips to help you get there.
Make use of time, let not advantage slip.
Make today the day you do something about it. Make a decision and put it in the lock box. Wanting to change and taking the first steps to make it happen is almost as important as identifying the initial problem.
Creating a daily task schedule or to-do list should be done first thing in the morning or at the end of the previous day. Tools like Workflowy and Wunderlist are great for creating simple, uncluttered to-do lists. If you have a specific set of actions you need to accomplish each day Process Street can help you with that.
Saying no is an incredibly effective time management tool. In a big city, in a busy world, there are many people vying for your attention. But is every trip to the pub really worth it? Do you really need to see that person for coffee or lunch? Or are you just procrastinating, afraid to grab your proverbial nuts and put in the work to achieve your dreams??nbamvpRead this if you need more convincing.
Even if you do all the above, there is still a ceiling to what you can accomplish on your own. No skyscraper, city, government or multinational corporation was ever built by one person alone. If you want to get more done, at some point you will need to hire people to help you. Whether that is a gardener to help you mow the lawn, or a CFO to handle your corporate finances, there is little doubt the way to get the most done is to recruit people to help you accomplish your goals. Tools like Process Street, Trello and Asana are all great to help you manage people and teams more effectively.
Time is the most precious resource we have, make sure you use it effectively.
