Time management is a such a key element in achieving your dreams and goals. It is also avoiding procrastination at all possible cost. How do we do that? It is one of those things that are easier said than done if you don’t have a proper strategy towards vision, goal and achievement.
No matter if you are the CEO of your company or an aspiring entrepreneur it is one of the common factors that affect us all, it’s part of being human.
However, that doesn’t mean that we are all doomed. It is one of the areas that can be practiced, perfected and naturally become part of your routine. Your awareness for time grows with each practice and you will be an expert in no time.
Here couple of tips on Time management :
1- Be clear on your goals
Be clear on your goals will help you to see if what is on your schedule is urgent, important, or a need to delegate.
For example when I know clearly my goals, I can divide my entire year with monthly tasks that need to be achieve.
2- Learn to delegate
Delegating can be so hard for small business owners, for entrepreneur and for people in leadership position. We want to do it all, we think nobody will do it the same….this statement is true, at times people will do it even better.
3- Prioritize wisely
Don’t wait until something become urgent to do it! It brings stress and negativity that is not needed.
4- Say NO
We can say no, we are allowed! Saying no when something does not align with our goals, it not only fine, but important to understand.
Planing your calendar year after your goals is so important. Plan around your schedule. As an example I know I can work super early and super late the week I do not have my children. However the week I have them, I limit my work during their school time.
I also know that in the summer I travel a lot, so I don’t accomplish as much.
Knowing that, helps me to understand that, if I want to achieve a goal at the end of the year, some months need to be more intense to make up for my travel time. Planning is vital to success!
