“Time management is a misnomer, the challenge is to manage ourselves.”
– Stephen Covey
Hello to all…
There was a time I used to think, “I have so much to do in so little time”. I didn’t know where to start and how to finish all my work and this continued for years.
Whereas now I finish all my chores and also get time to spend with myself or my loved ones.
Believe me, it’s quite simple. It is the small efforts that make life simple and easier.
What we need to do is keep our thoughts organized and act accordingly. I do prefer to make a list and check all the points once it is done. But with time it automatically became a nature or habit per say.
First thing in the morning: When I wake up in the morning while having tea I try remembering all the things needs to be done throughout the day. If anything very important pop ups in my mind, I save it in my smartphone checklist as a reminder. Or I take a notepad and list everything done and stick it on the refrigerator. By doing so I make sure my day is moving as planned and nothing is missing out. This is the first step to organize and plan your whole day.
You can also plan the night before going to sleep: Planning the next day before also helps you sleep stress-free.
Once we get a list of task needs to be done, we need to prioritize. Yes, this step is very important. There are people who complain, “I stay so busy the whole day, I am always working. Its either at the office or when I come home, I feel like I am always working and it drains me out. I am too exhausted to spend time with anyone else.”
Remember saying so ever? I did.
So prioritizing is very important. Continue reading “How to make time for everything you want to do- Time Management!”
