Managing Your Time
Ever find yourself running out of time to do things on a daily basis? Late submitting your assignment? Late to clock in for work? Always the last one to walk in late for a work meeting? Yes this is for all the lovely people who have a love-hate relationship with time management. Let’s face it, were not perfect and sometimes we run a little behind, but if its on a consistent basis, It may be time to re-evaluate your schedule.
This topic popped in my head because since 2018 has started I have been running around trying to manage my full-time job, friends, blog, and YouTube. It has been crazy! Today was the first day that I actually made time to make lunch and dinner for work, wash some clothes, clean my bedroom, and even had time to clear my car off from the snow in the midst of being on a phone call. Now how in the world did I do all this, make it 15 minutes early to work, and I woke up around 10:00? All before 1:30?! This almost never happens OK lol!
I knew then that it really just boils down to two words,TIME MANAGEMENT.
How can you manage your time a little better? Here’s my 3 Suggestions.
- SET ALARM CLOCKS AND ACTUALLY GET UP WHEN THEY GO OFF.
- CREATE TO-DO LISTS THAT ARE REALISTIC TO BE COMPLETED.
- PUT YOUR PHONE ON DO NOT DISTURB IF YOUR EASILY DISTRACTED.
I feel like these 3 suggestions are pretty self-explanatory. Set your alarm clocks and make sure you get up! What’s the point in setting them, if you’re not going to get up? Creating a To-Do list that is realistic meaning only having things that you are able to get done with your schedule that day within the time frame you have. Do not overwhelm yourself with ten thousand things to do with only 2 hours before work. Lastly, put down the cellphone! Listen, I love my cellphone! However, it can be a major distraction from not only doing things on a daily basis, but also while your at work, at the gym, or even in school and all these places are places you should be focused right? Agreed!
I hope these 3 Suggestions help you to stay organized and to manage your time!
