7 Ways Properly Manage Your Time

Work smarter, not harder!

Do you feel like you work your hardest but have little to show for at the end of each day? Are you feeling like you have way too much on your plate and just not enough time? With proper understanding of time management skills, you can learn how to make the most out of your day and feel accomplished. Let us show you!

1) Set Goals
Often times we spend more time writing long 'to-do' lists than actually completing even a single task! Instead of wasting time creating never ending lists, make a simple list of 3 most important goals you want to accomplish by the end of the day.

2) Work on the most important task first. 
We tend to put off the most important task as we think it is either too boring or will take too long. Always start off by finishing the most important task of your day. You will kickstart the day with an accomplishment and make more time for everything else. 

3) Focus on one thing at a time.
 
Focusing all of your energy on one task vs. trying to juggle multiple tasks at once is proven to provide better results. Focus on fully finishing a task before starting anything new to master productivity!

4) Work in time increments.
 
Working in short increments means you work your hardest for a while, then take a short break. A highly effective time management hack is called 'Pomodoro Technique' which suggests to work for 25 minutes then take a 5 minute break. Try for yourself, it totally works! 

5) Turn off all social media.
 
Any sort of social media is highly distracting when you are trying to get some work done! Put your phone away and focus on what needs to get done! 

6) Learn to say no.
 
An important part of time management is learning to say no. If you are feel that you are being pulled in too many directions and you are not spending your time wisely, simply say no! 

7) Sleep.
 
Don't underestimate the importance of sleep! Many of us think if we work late, we will get more done. While that may seem true for a few days, sleep deprivation will eventually catch up and effect your overall productivity. Give your body the sleep it needs and deserves to work your absolute best!
