We all have felt anxious about all we have to do during the day, a week or even a month. Mostly because we don’t know how to organize our time wisely according to our needs and our way of working. Don't you worry about it; at Premier Consumer we are delighted to present 7 simple pieces of advice to make your time work in your favor over your path to success.
Know your own time
When we think about time, the first image that might come to our mind is a huge clock. Well, you should know this: Hours, minutes and seconds are not the only “time” that exists in the world. There is also a sort of internal sense of timing directly related to our needs, urgencies, and willingness to perform any kind of task. Let us call this our “internal time”. Once you understand that time is not just the passing of hours, but your speed and willingness to start and finish you job, you can be as good as organizer of your own time as you should.
Define your Priorities
People who do not defined clear priorities and maintain a life style based on eventualities allow stress to take control over their life and productivity. So the first thing you want to do to make the most of your time, is taking 30 minutes a day to sit down and set a sort of a day-by-day outline. This might help you to create your own urgency ranking about all activities you have to carry out during your day. Make sure you have an organized day before stand up again.
Don’t Spend a Whole Day Working on One Task
Once your priorities are ranked, you want to see defined results and that is perfect. What is unhealthy is to remain stuck in in the problems provided by a specific task all day long. This would give you a sense of frustration that is very harmful for the productive habits you are looking for.
If you want to organize your time wisely, you need to think as a human being not as a machine. Machines malfunction when commands are wrong, but humans have the ability to be resourceful when facing problems. If you have problems to keep an agenda and tend to remain stuck in one task during hours, start doing a simple activity within your day-by-day outline. This way, you will progressively feel free of frustration, you will finish a different task, and you may come up with the resolution of the problem provided by the former task.
Reorganize Your Meeting Time
Your meetings as well as you specific tasks need to be framed in a less wide time-spam. If you start setting a new scheduling system for your business meetings, based on minutes instead of hours, you can be sure you will not waste your neurons in endless reunions without purpose. Set full-hour meetings to celebrate once you have already finished all you have to do.
Have a Record Of the work completed
There’s nothing more frustrating than looking at an agenda with a number of activities that you were not able to undertake. That is the reason we advise you to have a record list of activities that you were able to complete. In such a way, you will feel the rewarding sensation of having finished something so you will be motivated to carry on with some other responsibilities.
Be Neat and Have Everything in the Right Place
If you want to organize your time, make look in order and well organized your work place and your house. Remember that once you have everything in its right place it would be a lot easier to spot whatever you are looking for. By doing this, your brain will not be focused on the infinite search of a lost object but in the production of new ideas for your job.
Increase your Self-Awareness
The rise of self-awareness is one of the most important pieces of advice that Premier Consumer may offer. To make the most of your time, you need to make the most of you. Remember that “time” lives in your mind and it’s based on your needs, potentialities, willingness, and personal pace to perform any kind of job. Therefore, knowing your goal and how capable you are to achieve them, plus a well-organized day will result in the perfect triangulation for a life of 0% stress and 100% self-reliability.
