Girl teaching tips for time management

Is managing your time an easy task for you? Many of you would already know the tips for time management, whereas, there might be some who struggle with this important aspect of life.

Are you unable to accomplish all that you chalked out before the deadline? Or do you feel overwhelmed by the number of tasks in hand that need completion?

If your answer is yes, then you need to read this post and learn the time management tips to complete your tasks on time.

Do you need to change your lifestyle so that you can manage your time better? Well, yes, may be a little so that your life is balanced and you achieve happiness in life.

I used to have problems in managing my time a few years back, but things became easier when I learned the tips for time management which I want to share with you all here.

Let’s first understand the meaning of time management and its importance, before we go the time management tips.

“He who gains time gains everything” ~ Benjamin Disraeli

What is Time Management

First, you should know why time is important. It is so because time waits for no one, and time once lost can never be regained.

Remember, time will not stop, nor will it slow down for you. Your work might just keep increasing by the day and your time falling short.

You need to balance your work and time, and that’s why you’ve to learn time management. But what is time management you might ask.

Simply put, time management is how you manage your time effectively so that the right time is allocated to the right work.

It refers to making the best use of your time and managing your tasks. Effective time management is when you can assign specific time slots to activities based on their importance.

Managing your time is a skill that no one teaches you in school, but you have to learn it yourself.

Good time management doesn’t mean that you have to do more work or put lots of work hours. It means you need to focus on those tasks that will make a difference and bring results.

If you want things to change, you can. But for that YOU need to change yourself and the way you manage your time by using various tips for time management as mentioned below.

“Once you have mastered time, you will understand how true it is that most people overestimate what they can accomplish in a year — and underestimate what they can achieve in a decade!” ~ Anthony Robbins

Tips for Time Management

You can organize your day much better and lead a happy and healthier life if you follow these tips for time management.

1- Plan out your daily tasks

Make a list of all those things you need to do during the day – the night before, or during the first 30 minutes of your day.

Keep ALL distractions aside and just write down how you are going to manage your day according to their importance.

Keep ticking off once you end a task and move on to the next one. Try not to keep any pending tasks in hand, and if they do remain, carry it over to the next day’s list.

“Time lost is never found again” ~ Benjamin Franklin

Why Plan? After preparing a task list and scheduling it, you get a better idea of how much time you can take out for your work and your family, which is an equally important task.

When you schedule your time, you reduce stress and increase your energy levels. It gives you a greater feeling of being in control and in charge of your life, which indirectly boosts your self esteem – doesn’t it?

TIPS – Some more tips for time management when you plan ahead –

  • Use a calendar to manage your daily activities. For those working online Google Calendar is a good option. Also add an organizer to organize to-do lists, information, and everything else.
  • Set time limit within which you will end each task, and stick to it. This prevents you from dragging on one task for hours that you might have kept aside for other work.
  • Add buffer time before going from one activity to another as it gives you some free time and also helps wrap off the previous work properly. Buffer time is also important because if you’re working from home, you can look up your spouse, children, or any other family member who may need your help or time too.
  • Start early, and this really helps. Because if you plan to start work on time, you might be on time or late. Some people get late. But if you start early you’d more likely be on time. Moreover, when you start early you have more time in hand and you tend to remain more clear-headed, calm, and creative all through the day.

I always chalk out my work for the next day before I sleep, so that my mornings are fully focused to start working on things that need to be done on priority.

Takeaway – Don’t list out too many things on your to-do list. Keep them to a limited few that you know you will be able to accomplish daily. Do it in bits rather than getting overwhelmed with work!

2- Prioritize your work

Start your day by doing the most important tasks in hand first. Among all the tips for time management I feel this particular one is the most important one, though very few people are really good at it.

You need to ask yourself which work is more important and how much of time should you allocate to it.

Chalk out those things that need your immediate attention and start working on them. Don’t waste your time on other unimportant things.

“Managing your time without setting priorities is like shooting randomly and calling whatever you hit the target.” ~ Peter Turla

Why Prioritize? This will make it easier for you to take up the less important ones later. Your priority might be different from mine or anyone else’s. So, when you do your important tasks would depend on the time you are comfortable with.

I have a problem at times setting my priority for the work that needs attention first if I haven’t planned them earlier.

TIPS – Quick tips for time management when you are trying to prioritize your work

  • Apply the Pareto Principle, also known as the 80/20 rule, which helps you remove the less important tasks. This principle means that mostly 20% of your tasks produce 80% of your results.
  • Remove time wasters or stop doing those things that take a chunk of your time. What are these time wasters for you? Are they the social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter, or checking your emails, or your constantly ringing phone? STOP checking them often. Set a separate time for them and stick to that. This is a major time management technique I use.

You need to identify those things that help you reach your goal and make them your priority. Along the way you’ll realize that a few tasks need no longer be done at all.

Takeaway – As you can’t do everything, set priority for those things that need immediate attention, which you know will get you results, and leave the rest.

3- Set Realistic Goals

Know what all you can really do considering the nature of task, the time it takes to do, and the time in hand. Don’t plan or undertake tasks that you think are not realistic.

Avoid taking more than you can handle to keep your goal realistic. Learn to put your foot down and refuse doing things other than what need your attention. If you still need to consider them, then fix a later time for them.

“Never leave ’till tomorrow which you can do today.” ~ Benjamin Franklin

Why be realistic? Having incomplete tasks and unrealistic goals create pressure on you and often it becomes difficult to cope with the stress.

TIPS – Additional tips for time management that can help you achieve your goals.

  • Learn to say NO. This is a huge time saver as well as stress reliever!
  • Don’t try to do everything! Accept the fact that you cannot do everything, nor be everywhere all the time.  Focus on things that yield important results and do them first, and spend less time on things that can wait.

Takeaway – Just CLOSE everything while you work. No emails, no social media, no texting, no phones –nothing except work! Try it out. It’s the best among the other tips for time management that works for me.

4- Remain focused

Focus on doing just one thing at a time. If you try multi-tasking your efficiency levels go down and you cannot really get things done on time.

If you’re a working mom, you might need to work at more than one task at a time alongside your work because you need to see to a lot of things like you family, kids, home, kitchen etc.

However, you need to set time limits for doing each task so that nothing really suffers – yet keep a quiet time slot for yourself when you just work. That time could be perhaps when your kids are away. I do that!

“You will never find time for anything. If you want time you must make it.” ~ Charles Buxton

Why be focused?  If you get sidetracked or distracted from doing what’s important, you might not be able to complete the task in time.

If you’re a blogger or writer and tend to get distracted from work while working online – then shut down all extra tabs.

When you write, you should only focus on writing, and when you’re required to do something else, just do that and nothing else!

TIPS – Some tips for time management to remain focused –

  • Keep a clock  in-front of you because when you are lost in work, you might lose track of time. Some people use Egg Timer to track their time, which is an online countdown timer. Similarly, there are many other tools and applications that can help you remain focused.
  • End the most unpleasant task as soon as you can so that you don’t postpone it, and it won’t even bug you or add to your to-do list.  Once it’s done, you’ll feel more energized and focused to do what needs to be done.
  • Set reminders to take breaks because this helps you work better and you remain more focused in your work. You could take 5 or 10 minutes or even longer breaks depending on how you work. Some people like working for 45 min at a stretch and taking a 15 minute break, while others work for 30 min and take a 10 minute break. It all depends on what works best for you and keeps you energized and focused. I generally prefer taking a break after working for one or two hours because I have limited time to work. I don’t set reminders because now it’s become a habit to take them at regular intervals. And in my break time, I usually catch up with some house work, or check on the kids, cook, listen to music, or just close my eyes and meditate to relax my mind.
  • Cut off from work when you have to, or else there’s never going to be an end to working endlessly. Sometime you tend to become too engrossed in your work that you lose track of time and ignore other important aspects of life like exercising, eating, and sleeping. I have a tough time shutting off things because I don’t like to keep things for the next day. But sometimes when it gets overwhelming – I just have to cut off and call it a day! How about you?

Takeaway – You need to block parts of the day when you aren’t to be interrupted by anyone, nor get distracted in any way. Schedule your most challenging task when you are fully alert, energetic and focused.

5- Be flexible

Don’t be a perfectionist. Instead, be flexible to accept what you cannot do, or change your way of working. Seek outside help or delegate the work if you find it tough to do it all yourself.

“To do two things at once is to do neither“ ~ Publius Syrus

Why be flexible?  When you are flexible and delegate, it takes the burden off you so that you can focus on other important tasks.

Honestly speaking, I struggle with this the most because I spend a lot of time to get something perfectly done. My husband often tells me not to go to such extents and know when to stop and move on to the next activity.

TIPS More tips or time management to help you remain focused.

  • You need to let go of things and change your approach or strategy as per circumstances and new developments. And that may require you to make changes in your task list or your time schedule.
  • Find your work-life balance by being flexible enough, and managing your time so as to give quality time to your family and work. If it’s a weekend and a movie time, you need to drop your work because your family needs you too!

Takeaway – You need to work smart and not hard. Effectively managing your time means doing high-quality work, not high quantity. Be ready to change yourself to work better. Reminder for me too!

6 – Develop good habits

If you ask  – where does having a good habit fit in the tips for time management, I’d say that it should be the first and foremost in the list!

Habits are nothing more than patterns that you follow, knowingly or unknowingly.

Create a routine that favors your work hours or schedule, makes it easy to devote time to work, and helps you be more efficient and productive.

Speaking of myself, I’ve made my routine and know when I have to do what work. If I don’t follow that set pattern, everything for the rest of the day goes haywire. How about you?

“He that rises late must trot all day”~ Benjamin Franklin

Why create good habits? You need to change your lifestyle and habits at times for better time management.

Small lifestyle changes can be things like eating healthy and nutritious food, exercising regularly, and sleeping well, which increase your productivity manifolds.

Early morning hours work best for me, because those are the most productive ones. Perhaps for you it might be the night time or any other time during the day, so it all depends from one person to another.

TIPS – Here are some tips for time management that can help you once you develop good habits.

  • Sleep early if you prefer working early morning. Otherwise, you’d be reducing your sleep time, which would be detrimental to your health. I’m guilty here 🙂
  • Be ready to make any changes in your habit or routine, and you should embrace them happily.
  • Avoid procrastination because you may get into the habit of postponing the difficult jobs and doing the easier ones, and over a period of time these just piles up into your to-do list.

Takeaway – Work within your boundary and time limits. Don’t try doing things that can lead to health problems like stress, blood pressure, stiff neck, and others, which can occur due to a sedentary and unhealthy lifestyle. All of this will affect the way you work and your life.

“If you want to make good use of your time, you’ve got to know what’s most important and then give it all you’ve got.” ~ Lee Iacocca

The above mentioned tips for time management are suggestions, most of which I’ve tried – they aren’t any hard and fast rules you need to follow. See what works for you and chalk out ways to manage your time better.

Some of these time management tips may work for you and some may not, but you won’t really know till you try them out.

Work never ends, but if you know the way to manage your time to accomplish the work, you will lead a healthier lifestyle.

Well, here are some great suggestions from the time management guru Brain Tracy himself, and I’m sure you’d find them useful!

Eat That Frog & The ABDCE Method ~ Brian Tracy ~ You Tube Video

Most of you might think that time is money, but I feel that time is life and if you have more of time, you have more of life – isn’t it? So, if you learn to balance your time well, you’ll be able to lead a happier life.

“Time = life; therefore, waste your time and waste of your life, or master your time and master your life.” ~ Alan Lakein

Just think that if you save 1 hour daily by managing your time well, you’d save 336 hours a year!

Imagine all that you can do with that free time – spend more time with your family, kids, go on a vacation, or just do whatever you want to do.

So, ready to go in for these tips on time management? Then what are you waiting for 🙂

    The best 2 tips which i also follow is:sleep early and start your day early.

    There is 1 more tip 1 would like to add.

    If you are checking your mailbox, close the mails by replying them right away and don’t keep them in your follow up unless otherwise necessary. Few people have habit of reading all the mails and then came back again to those mail for which they need to reply. Simple motto is if you have start 1 thing, close it to the end.

    Harleena Amazing time management tips.

    My tips for time management to folks:
    Batch similar tasks together. For related work, batch them together. For example, my work can be categorized into these core groups: (1) writing (articles, my blog) (2)Office work (3) workshop development (4)Blogging Management. I batch all the related tasks together so there’s synergy. If I need to make calls, I allocate a time slot to make all my calls. It really streamlines the process.

    Eliminate your time wasters. What takes your time away your work? Facebook? Twitter? Email checking? Stop checking them so often. One thing you can do is make it hard to check them – remove them from your browser quick links / bookmarks and stuff them in a hard to access bookmarks folder. Replace your browser bookmarks with important work-related sites. While you’ll still check FB/Twitter no doubt, you’ll find it’s a lower frequency than before.

    Hi Harleena:

    I’m impressed that you have the knowledge about so many topics. Time management is actually a topic I’m just passionate about, because I like my time organized and things under my control. And I’m writing a book about this topic now.

    To be honest, time management is always easy to talk about but difficult to imply, and it’s even more difficult to imply it constantly. I use to read a lot of time management books. Every time I read a new book or learn a new concept or a new tool, I got very excited. However, you probably can figure out how long I would practice that method. LoL!.

    As I’m getting much better about time management now, I see much better results and efficiency from both my work and my life.

    You’ve got a lot of good points already plus from others comment. I just want to add one point here.

    We all say “Time is Money”. If you borrow money from a bank, you’ll need to pay for the interest. If you borrow time, won’t you pay for interest? How do you borrow time? When we use time from one activity for anther activity, then we are borrowing time. For example, if you give up your sleeping time to work, you’ll not get enough sleep. Your energy level and efficiency will gradually decrease, which will affect your performance. In long term, it’s harmful to your healthy. That’s the INTEREST you pay for borrowing time.

    Never borrow time, when it’s time to eat, eat; when it’s time to sleep, sleep.

    Love, love, love all the quotes, Harleena, especially Ben Franklin’s.

    Personally, I gave in to my personality which is to go with the flow. I’d rather not accomplish anything without stressing out about it, then constantly checking myself against a to-do list realizing how little I’ve done.

    It’s interesting though because I always thought of myself as a very well-organized person. And I still am, just not in business.

    • Harleena Singh

      August 19, 2013 at 10:20 am

      Hi Ana, it’s SO nice to see you here once again after long 🙂

      I’m glad you like the quotes, they do really jell-in well with the post.

      Everyone has his or her own way of doing or taking things. That could vary as per the difference in the personalities – your ways would not be the same as mine. But then the value of time remains the same for all. And time management techniques can be generalized for all. You can definitely add your own color to it after you assess and understand your personality – your preferences, liking, and dislikes etc.

      I like your way of managing your time by going with the flow. That way you love your way of working, which isn’t any alien concept to you. You can keep your personality as it is and make subtle changes to it, if required by learning a few skills or techniques.

      For me, my husband is an example of a person who gets going only when there’s a considerable amount of stress – so, people adapt differently as per their personality.

      It’s good that you maintain a to-do list because not many even take the trouble to do even that! And, that as you can imagine, leads to chaos at the end of the day, resulting in delaying and procrastination.

      You seem to have a natural well-disciplined and organized personality, which works in your favor. Lot of other personal factors contribute to that, including your personal and spiritual beliefs.

      Thanks so much for your wonderful comment and for contributing to the post. I really appreciate it and hope to see you around. 🙂

    I love reading posts about time management, and this is a great one! My main problem is getting started, and time getting away from me. I have my own system for planning and prioritising which, when I am focused, works really well. I use a diary system with daily tasks. The next thing I want to work on is putting like tasks together.

    Hi Harleena,

    Planning your daily tasks, prioritizing them and giving them a time limit is so important. I never actually realized just how important it was until I began doing it and boy did I get a lot more done!

    Whenever I get lazy and don’t plan, I really see a difference.

    But to complement that we do need to let go of things that get in the way and make room for living our lives. Burnout is a big problem in this industry and you really want to avoid that at all costs.

    And of course have good habits. One of my bad habits was eating at my computer. Talk about never giving yourself a break — bad idea.

    Thanks Harleena. Great post and well written 🙂

    Blessings,
    Liz

    Hi Harleena,

    You have given so nice tips, i like this post…even we schedule the work according to time also i am unable to do it, because some work needs to be done urgently that time. how i can manage time for other scheduled work at that particular time?

  17. Jenny Gregory

    May 23, 2013 at 9:10 pm

    Making a list of tasks to do the next day can really make a difference. This keeps you focused on the priority items. Many people are just not time aware, but focusing on specific tasks one at a time will still help the important stuff get done.

    Hi Harleena,

    Very useful post for those who struggle between multiple schedules.

    From my view.- plan and prioritizing the tasks are key components. The more crucial part is, we need to respect our schedule once we Prioritize and move on as planned. Most time we tend to incline as we wish on the fly though we planned it as different execution. That’s the clear mess. 🙂

    If we really respect our schedule and follow the protocol hopefully we can contain more time and can accomplish the task as planned. 🙂

    Thanks for the informative and time sensitive post 🙂

    Hi Harleena,

    I know I need this advice because I’ve had this article open for a week before I could get to it! I love your ideas here and I’m going to incorporate them starting with the list. You’re right, when I make a list I get so much more done, plus I have the satisfaction of crossing items off the list. Yea!

    I like your Pareto Rule too. Prioritizing is important and we should look at our lists with an open mind, determining which tasks are most important and which we can get done in the time frame we have available to us.

    I also like how you pointed out how many hours we can save in a year if we practice these helpful tips. Who couldn’t use that extra time!

    I’m off to share this, then make my list! Or should I make my list first and include sharing this great article so I can check that off of my list? 😉

    Hi Harleena,

    Time is money?! Sometimes I hate that phrase, but when it comes to businesses, I see how folks measure time with money too 😉 Well, for businessmen, that’s how they survive I think. No one would like to give up on competition and go for bankrupcy, no? 🙂 Anyway I think that’s their choice and it’s alright if they care it the most.

    Time management was not too complicated until I’ve joined with the development project Harleena. If you know someone who is a software developer or engineer, you won’t be surprise though 😉 lol…

    I’ve got to deal with work as and when I get them and plans change with no prior notice. Dynamic indeed! Well, I have no control over it though, ’cause I’m not the BOSS there.

    First, I’ve finished off the first piece of work faster and then asked for next one rather than waiting until they send me what to do next. What I wanted was to finish things earlier and so I can go to write my blog posts, comment on others and you know, do usual stuff. But it’s never ending and I had no much time left either. Yeah, working hard and needed sleep rather than doing blog related stuff.

    I had a to-do list to follow everyday, but now I strictly think about priority than before as I don’t know when I’ll have to be busy or not, exactly. Stressing, isn’t it? 🙂 Well, I try not to and take breaks and follow healthy tips I can follow.

    My main problem is dealing with blog related work Harleena. I’ve changed frequency of posting to once a week. I can write a post in few minutes or few lines of comments, but I feel embarrassed for doing it 😀 I’ve always did my homework, spell check and all that. I mean, I’d try to be qualitative and yeah, like you, trying to be perfect I guess. Even in simplest things I do 🙂 It’s alright if I fail doing something, but abandoning or ignoring is not something I’d like to go with.

    Further I feel obligated for commenting. For example, you comment on my posts and you do post two times a week. I feel bad if I don’t comment on both 😀 Do you think I shouldn’t push myself that much?

    As with dynamic environment, focus helping me so much Harleena. I’m just away from too much multitasking as I used to earlier and focus on one thing and move on to other. Prioritizing? Indeed! However planning out is the difficult one for me and being realistic is indeed harder with unpredictable work schedules dear. It’d be much easier if I haven’t give much priority for work, but it’s not realistic at all. Can’t let down my blog either 😉

    Anyway I believe slower is better than quitting, no? 🙂

    You have a lovely week there Harleena 🙂 Always helpful tips here.

    Cheers…

    Time management is one of those things that seems harder and harder to do these days. The problem of too many tasks and not enough time to do them seems to plague us all. But you can manage your time so that everything gets done and you aren’t stressed out—all it takes is a few basic management skills!

    I think the most difficult part is the first part of starting the plan for the day.I have never planned anything in my life.Recently in one of my written exam i ended up performing very poorly because of poor time management.I always feel that i should start managing my time better but never done more than thinking.Your post is really nice – it is very encouraging,this time i will try to implement…..I will again give a feedback if i succeed…..

    Nice to hear about time management,

    I believe a persons success mantra lies in the time management itself. A person who utilizes their time properly and maintain an organized schedule will defiantly taste success.Time and tide waits for none and to bring a balance between time and work load is bit tedious and it needs some practice.

    Sometimes I too can’t schedule my paper corrections properly and at the end I had to pay the price by sitting whole night correcting those. I always think daily I should correct 10 papers but I say tomorrow I will do 20 but again I postpone and I think I will do 30 and at last I will sit with all those 50 papers on the last day from morning till night with 6 such bundles. Still I think I need to be careful in managing my time and my work pressure.

    Thanks for the Quotes Harleena I liked all of them especially “He that rises late must trot all day”~ Benjamin Franklin This quote is a good replacement for early to bed early to rise makes a man healthy and wise. Good one I was actually opening this article from past 5 days to read and daily as soon as I open some work and I am postponing may be the length of the post is so long that I needed 5 days to complete it reading. As you have said in the post no emails no Facebook likewise when we want to read an article I think we should take some time when no one disturbs.

    I could definitely manage my time better. I don’t miss doing things or late to doing things, but a little more structure could help out a lot I would think. Great post!

    So many choices of what to change!

    The Prioritize and be Flexible are ones that stand out for me.

    I definitely need to include more “real live people” interaction and reduce my computer time so I can complete more of my “Daily Living” work assignments.

    It is easy to lose your time when working on the computer…especially if Facebook and Twitter are hanging around open…that little clink on Facebook demands attention.

    Thanks for steering me here Adrienne….Wonderful information and it doesn’t Nag!

      Welcome to the blog Cararta!

      Yes indeed, there’s a lot we can do if we really want to change our way or working – isn’t it?

      Prioritization is often the most difficult part for most people, though if they are able to do that, they can really remain focused and achieve a great deal. Absolutely – the social media can really keep you glued and unless you don’t close those tabs when you work, you can’t really get down to work. I’ve started visiting all these social medias at a set time for a limited time period on a daily basis, and that’s working out pretty well for me.

      Ah…I guess we need to thank Adrienne for your visit here, and am glad you liked these tips on time management too.

      Thanks for stopping by 🙂
