What is a good way to manage your time?
I want to be able to manage my time wisely through college and my possible career choice. Being able to manage my time will allow me to equally distribute time through my activities and finish any assignment given to me. #college #management #school
Using a daily task list and setting a specific amount of time per task is a must. Once you've spent the allotted time on one task, you must move on to the next, even if you're not quite done. Move the unfinished task to the bottom of your list so you make sure to go back to it or move it to the top of your list for the next day. It's a challenge at first, but once you've established the habit, you'll get better at estimating the actual time it takes to complete certain tasks. Move your shorter tasks to the beginning of the day so that they are out of the way and that may also free up additional time you may need for your bigger tasks.
Complete most important tasks first.
Learn to say “no”.
Sleep at least 7-8 hours.
Devote your entire focus to the task at hand.
Get an early start.
Don’t allow unimportant details to drag you down.
Turn key tasks into habits.
Leave a buffer-time between tasks.
Exercise and eat healthily.
Utilize weekends, just a little bit.
Eliminate the non-essential.
There’s one final tip I want to mention. If you remember one thing from this post, remember this:
Enjoyment should always be the goal. Work can be play. :)
You need to differentiate between the important tasks and the urgent tasks:
Urgent task: is a task that you need to completed as soon as possible.
Important task: is a task the you need to completed with high quality.
Some of the urgent tasks are not important, and some of the important tasks they are not urgent.
I recommend you to use Trello app (you can find it on iOS store or Google store) it will help you a lot to manage your daily tasks and work.
Thank you for your query.
Time management, according to me is a HABIT more than anything else.
Few things I focused on:
1. Making a To Do list and adhering to the timelines
2. Prioritizing the work as High-Medium-Low on importance for completion
3. Scheduling my day to day activities
So based on the above points, I made a list of things I need to do daily including the basics as bath, eat, travel, etc. Everything was time based and scheduled. I practiced this and today its my habit. I follow it religiously and it has eased my work and my personal life too. I have calendarized everything I need to do and today's technology (mobiles, watches, etc.) are a big help in keeping up with your schedules. I'm able to do all of it in time and also get to have free time to have some fun.
I hope this helps you in getting better at managing time. I wish you all the very best.
Here are a few things that help might help you to manage time
1), Prepare a list of the tasks you want to accomplish: A list of task will help you get a handle on what needs to get done.
2), Complete most important tasks first: This is the golden rule of time management. Each day, identify the two or three tasks that are the most crucial to complete, and do those first.
3). Learn to say “no” : Making a lot of time commitments can teach us how to juggle various engagements and manage our time. This can be a great thing.
4) Exercise and eat healthily: Numerous studies have linked a healthy lifestyle with work productivity. Similar to getting enough sleep, exercising and eating healthily boost energy levels, clear your mind, and allow you to focus more easily.
I am so glad that you are thinking of this now. Many times we get overwhelmed and then try to dig our way out, but by getting organized early you are sure to start out successful.
I completely agree with the three prior posts. I think that creating a list and a time frame to complete each task on the list is great. If you have an hourly calendar/planner I suggest using it. I find that it keeps more focused.
The one addition that I would add is, Don't Multitask. It used to be believed that by doing multiple things at once you could accomplish more in a shorter time. Now studies are showing that multitasking is actually slowing down the process. If you are supposed to work on Task A from 11:00-12:30, then only work on Task A for that time frame. You will get more accomplished staying focused.
You will need to focus on stress and time management. In order to manage stress you have to manage your time wisely. <span style="background-color: transparent;">You have to set a routine for yourself and stick to it for the most part. Once you get into the groove of a routine it will be much easier for you to manage your time and have enough time for everything you need to do (including relaxing). Make yourself to-do lists on a weekly basis, use Google calendar or a planner to keep track of events, deadlines, and due dates. In addition to setting a routine and sticking to it, plan out relaxing activities into your day. Or set aside a time, after everything is done for the day, that you can have "me" time. I have also personally found it essential to not only find time for myself but also make use of that time in a way that is best for me and my holistic wellness. I have found the HeadSpace app to be an essential tool in helping me relax and generally feel more relaxed throughout the day, Guided meditation, even if you have a busy schedule, will make you feel more at ease and relaxed throughout the day as a whole (not just when you have the time to relax and focus on that "me" time).</span>
