How can I manage my time better? I try my best but I know that it isn't good enough. I'm still running out of time 90% of the time!!!!

Hi Geryka,

How are you managing your time right now? I suggest making a calendar and following it. I do this with outlook, and Gmail. You should try it :)

Best regards,
Herman

Hi Geryka! I 100% agree with Herman. Since I had my son almost 2 years ago, this has been something that I have been working on again and I have found that scheduling is the best way for me to get the things that are most important to me done. There are almost always more 'To Dos' than what there is time in the day. Prioritizing what is most important and then scheduling accordingly is key. For me, I have a son, husband, and pets that I want to spend time, work full time, exercise, social time, date time with hubby, chores around the house, personal interests such as reading, volunteering, etc. When I am on point with my scheduling, I feel less stress and happier because I feel more fulfilled with what I am able to accomplish. I use Outlook at work for scheduling and the calendar on my iPhone for personal scheduling. 


Hope that helps! Good luck and best wishes!

Ashley

Decide on your ultimate goal, determine what actions need to be taken first
Say no to tasks that don't help achieve your goal
Eliminate distractions to stay focused
Outsource/delegate some smaller everyday tasks
Take a break every so often to improve your focus when you return.

Aaron’s Answer

Everyone has difficulties with time management, so don't feel like you're alone!

You can try to make a list of all the tasks you need to complete and then prioritise the most important ones; remembering that certain tasks may be dependent on others being completed first. You can then assign an amount of time that it will take in order to complete each task. For example reading a certain chapter of a book you're studying will take an hour, then a second task could be reflecting on this chapter, which could be 30 minutes.

The most important element to this is allowing yourself enough time for each task. This can also be a confidence boost if you complete a task more quickly than you anticipated.

I hope this helps!

Kara’s Answer

Hi Geryka,

Prioritize, list it out, stick to that list, and stop stressing. Stress takes up soooo much valuable time. Come up with a plan and stick to it. If you don't get it all done, look at what happened or what went wrong, adjust, and try again. You can only do the best you can do. Worrying solves nothing. Spending that time and energy actually DOING the tasks you're worried about is so much more beneficial! Best of luck!!
