Today we face a new reality. For the last 2 years, everyone's everyday life has changed, we had to evolve, learn new “survival” skills.
It may seem a lot, frustrating and impossible.
Whether you are a working mom and need to go back to the office, or a person who became very comfortable with working from home, or a student who managed university and work, but now you have to physically be there, It does not matter, we think we have tips and suggestions for everyone.
Time management is not about managing your time. It's about managing yourself. Each person has 24 hours in a day. However, how we use these hours is entirely up to us. The best time management strategies improve your workflow, protect you from distractions and keep you focused. There are many time management methods on the Internet. We've narrowed down the four that we believe make the most difference.
Keep a to-do list
Although it might not sound like an innovative technique, creating a to-do checklist is one of the best ways to increase productivity. To-do lists that include multiple tasks are the best. These tasks can be quick, urgent tasks that can be done in 10 minutes or larger, and operational tasks that require constant work.
A list of tasks will help you be more organized about the things you do. This list clearly outlines what you need to do. Any tasks outside of the scope of your task are secondary. If your mind wanders, you can quickly glance at your list to remind yourself what you should be doing. A to-do listing allows you to have one of the greatest pleasures in life: Visualize your goals and work your way to them.
Rank your tasks
Prioritizing your tasks can be the next step to better time management. This guide will help you prioritize the most important tasks and complete them first. Prioritizing what is most important to your priorities should be a key part of ranking your tasks. You should identify the tasks and activities that are most valuable to you, your work, and your team. This is possible by using the time management template.
Prioritization is essential. Without it, we can easily lose sight of the really important things. Prioritization is your most effective defense against the lure of urgent-yet-inconsequential tasks.
We all get distracted, despite our best efforts. From social notifications to talkative colleagues--and the very human problem of procrastination--sitting down and getting things done is almost always harder than it should be. It takes approximately 23 minutes to focus again after being interrupted. This quickly increases the productivity cost of daily distractions. You need to manage distractions effectively to maintain your focus and flow.
Some distractions are easy to spot, but many people don't realize the multitude of pressures that can cause them problems. Once you've identified the source, it is possible to set up controls so that you can decide when notifications should be sent. A clear communication framework can help you manage common culprits such as email, meetings, and Slack.
Track your time
Without understanding the actual way you use your time, you cannot improve the way you use it. It is simple to track your time. This gives you the ability to identify hidden time-wasters, highlight inefficient processes, and plan your productive habits. It can be used to track your performance against your time-blocked agenda.
These tricks may not solve all your problems, but we need to start from somewhere. Try them, evolve them around yourself and see how they can fit you.
And also do not forget that, even though 2021 is ending, 2022 is coming, and you need to start planning, your personal goal, business strategies, etc., and if you need help, as you know, we are always here, leave us your contact or see our services, we will find a way to make best of next year.
Together we will create something great.
