Time management

We all juggle busy schedules. Most of our schedules include waking up before day in the morning to get the kids ready for school, getting our partners ready for work, dropping the kids off before facing the boss, clocking in to that 7am job that we love so much, working 8 long hours, rushing home to grab the kids, helping them with homework while juggling dinner on the stove and finally resting our heads at 8pm to only do it all over again the very next day. Oh no, you missed doing your homework or taking the kids to the park to play for a few hours. How did you miss  those tasks? Let me say this, you failed to manage your time correctly.

Use A Calendar: You can pick up a calendar from your local 99 cent store, Walgreens, or WalMart, etc. They are simple to use. I usually buy two calendars. I get one that I can carry around in  my briefcase and one that I can hang on my wall. At the end of each night, I make sure all of my calendars are up to date with one another so I never miss anything important. Most cell phones and computers come with calendars as well to make planning on the go easy.

Create A Daily Plan and Execute It: Personally, I make my daily plans Sunday night for the entire week. I like to think of daily plans as small goals, easy to manage and easy to achieve. Every night before I go to bed I make sure that I have followed my planned tasks for the day so I will not get behind for the week.

Set A Time Limit For Every Task: It is very important that you set a time limit for each one of your tasks and make sure you stick to it. You can get more done in a day and accomplish your daily and weekly tasks. For example, if you are writing a 500 word essay for school, give yourself about 4 hours to write the essay. The first hour you should be brain storming on what you are going to write about. Two of those hours you should be writing the essay and the 4th hour you should proof read your essay. Stick to your time limits and deadlines.

Know Your Deadlines: Know your deadlines. Mark your deadlines on your calendars and highlight them. I usually circle the day  that my tasks are due on all of my calendars.

Have A Clock Next To You: Make sure you have a clock next to you. Avoid having your cell phone because the majority of us have a bad habit of looking at our phones for the time and then texting back to our boyfriends/girlfriend, mom, dad and besties. Don’t do it!

Block Out Distractions: Go to a quite place like the library or your local coffee house. Don’t be around friends. They are easy to get distracted by. Another way to block out distractions is to turn off your cell phone and do not watch TV while doing your tasks. Focus!

Prioritize: Work on the things that are most important first. Work on the assignments or tasks that are due first. Stay in order.
