It doesn’t cost more to do it right!

Everyone gets the same number of hours each day, but some seem to achieve more. The difference lies in how efficiently you make use of those hours. These tips for managing time can assist you in working smarter, not harder.

1. Plan ahead.

It’s impossible to anticipate everything that happens however, you should strive to be as prepared as possible. Make a list of tasks that you must complete each day. Include any deadlines or meetings that could impact your schedule. Estimate the amount of time each task will take as accurately as possible. This will keep you on the right track and feel more productive.

2. Eliminate distractions.

Distractions can originate from any number of places – social media, colleagues, text messages telephone calls from personal phones, or even random thoughts – and they all can cause destruction on your productivity. Find out what distracts you and develop a strategy to handle it. Maybe it means shutting your door to avoid distractions or placing your phone on silent for example. You might have to say no to friends or change your date if you have an important assignment due.

3. Prioritize your tasks.

Every day, review every task and assign it a priority by importance and urgency. This will stop you from feeling overwhelmed by a long list of tasks, and ensure that the most important ones are completed first.
