HOW TO MANAGE YOUR TIME.

1. Set a time limit to complete a task.

Outlining time constraints for accomplishing a tasks helps you be more concentrated and productive. Making the small additional effort to decide on how much time you have to allot for each task can also help you identify potential problems before they arise. That way you can make plans for dealing with them.

 

2. Prioritize wisely

Prioritize tasks based on importance and urgency. For instance,  your daily tasks and determine which are:

Important and urgent: Do these tasks right away.

Important but not urgent: Decide when to do these tasks.

Urgent but not important: Delegate these tasks if possible.

Not urgent and not important: Set these aside to do later.

3. Set goals correctly

Set goals that are achievable, realistic and measurable. Use the SMART strategy when setting goals. In essence, make sure the goals you set are Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, and Timely. That way you can have an overview of what you’ll be doing the next day or what you’ll do after you’re done with your current task.

4. Organize yourself

Use your calendar for more long-term time management. Jot down the deadlines for projects, or for tasks that are part of finalizing the overall project. Find out which days might be best to dedicate to specific tasks. For instance, you might want to organize a fundraising event for your organization, you need to check your other schedules and the day you think is suitable for the event.

5. Plan ahead.

Make sure you begin every day with a clear idea of what you need to do – what needs to get done THAT DAY. Consider making it a habit to, at the end of each workday, go ahead and write out your “to-do” list for the next workday. That way you can hit the ground running the next morning.
