What you accomplish during a 24-hour period depends on your own motivation, your energy, your skills and abilities, and other resources. Since there are always demands on your time, it may be helpful to think about what you will do with your time and to consider some strategies for more effective time management. Time management is not working harder and longer, but it is working smarter to accomplish your work more easily and rapidly.
Here are six terrific truths about time: First : Nobody can manage time . But you can manage those things that take up your time. Second : Time is expensive . As a matter of fact, 80 percent of our day is spent on those things or those people that only bring us two percent of our results. Third : Time is perishable . It cannot be saved for later use. Fourth : Time is measurable . Everybody has the same amount of time...pauper or king. It is not how much time you have; it is how much you use. Fifth : Time is irreplaceable . We never make back time once it is gone. Sixth : Time is a priority . You have enough time for anything in the world, so long as it ranks high enough among your priorities.
If you can manage your time more effectively, you will be rewarded in a variety of ways: You will be more efficient You will achieve greater success You will certainly feel healthier, more energetic, and in a generally better mood
Do – Determine from the list the things you think are most important to accomplish, and are things you should do yourself. Delegate – Remember that there are many people with skills, experience, and motivation to carry out a wide variety of tasks. Understands that real leaders do not try to accomplish everything themselves and recognizes that some things are better handled by others. Delegating not only frees up your time for other things, it ensures that resources are used wisely and that others who want to help are motivated and involved. Delay until another time – Some things can wait. The danger is delaying too many things until deadlines are near. The best policy here is to consider when things are due, how long it will take to accomplish them, and what your current workload will allow . It makes sense to delay things that are not due when you are “overburdened” and to accomplish them ahead of time when you can. Delete – If you recognize that some of your goals are not achievable or realistic, or that they are just not important, eliminate them.
