We are constantly running somewhere, busy with something, and still, we don’t have much time, we procrastinate. As a result, work accumulates, and we get frustrated, because we haven’t done things according to the plan or deadlines.
Let's find some time in our ever-busy schedule, stop, make our favorite tea or coffee and read some really useful information.
In this publication you will find 9 effective tips that help you to rationally use your working and free time every day.
1. Early to rise
The bulk of successful people start their day at dawn or even before it. Yeah, some of us are “early birds”, some are “owls”, but getting up early, having breakfast and planning your day calmly is worth a lot.
2. Taking notes
We can't really keep all the information in our heads, can we? Make yourself a good habit to write down every good thought or plan for the day. It’s also very good to set yourself “reminders”; let our gadgets help us save time, not only waste it.
3. Planning by priorities
Let’s go back to the first point. The early rise allows us to quietly hear our inner voice, which will help not only to write a list of necessary tasks, but also to correctly prioritize them.
4. Make use of templates
Almost any task has repeated actions. For example, you send a lot of e-mails every day, etc. Why not simplify your life by creating a template letter that you can send to many people just by writing in the right names.
5. Use your travel time wisely
Throughout life, we spend a lot of time on various journeys, business trips, and flights. This is a “golden” time because before the trip we can figure out how much time will be spent on the road and what we can use it for.
No matter how trite it may sound, but sometimes you need to deviate from the schedule. It’s a contradiction to the previous paragraphs you may think...and will be right. It is small improvisation and freedom of our thoughts that make us more flexible and open up new possibilities. Planning is good, but it is impossible to calculate and plan everything exactly to the smallest detail. It is necessary to leave a small margin of time for risks and prospects.
7. Each thing has its own place and time
If you are going to bed, you shouldn't spend time working or checking your social networks. It’s hard to get rid of habits because we are attached to our gadgets. But make yourself a rule: at work, we work, on vacation, we rest. So, if you're going to bed, don't waste time checking mail.
8. The benefit of pauses
It is impossible to work on the same task for a long time and not go crazy. In order not to get into chronic procrastination, take breaks. Whenever inspiration comes - do some part of the task, stop, look at the result objectively, reconstruct the plan for further actions. Some people find switching between several tasks helpful.
9. Be happy
Remember, we radiate what we think about and receive back what we radiate. Don't chase time, don't beat yourself up if you don't have time to do something. Don't think about what will happen if you don't do something on time. People often spend too much time in fear than in action. Forgive yourself, come to terms with the thought that if you can't keep up, the world won’t collapse. If you didn’t have time today - you’ll have time tomorrow. Live in harmony with your desires and abilities. And then you will learn to get along with time and be happy.
