Is there ever such a thing as being totally finished? Whether you apply that question to your work or your home, there is always something else to do. Yes, you can take breaks as you should but things still have to get done. If it seems like you never have enough time, then you’ll want to put some time management into action. Here’s what you need to think about:
You should have goals that are daily, weekly, monthly and even yearly. These goals become your primary focus and anything else could be consider a potential time-waster. Keep in mind, that a goal can also be see a movie that just opened or workout at the gym. Now the challenge is to find the right amount of time to make those goals happen.
You need to prioritize in order to spend your time more efficiently. Start with those tasks that are “urgent.” These are the job responsibilities that can’t be put off. There are also urgent tasks like stocking the fridge and getting the oil changed in your car. Which of these tasks can be accomplished on the weekend or after work? What you’re really looking for are all those things that become regular wastes of time that stand in the way of you achieving your goals for the day/week.
You are in control of your time and the strongest power you have is to say, “No.” You might not be able to say no to your boss but you can say no to phone calls that get in the way of achieving your goals. You can say no to an invitation that will take up too much time and not provide you with any reward. Saying no can be extremely empowering.
Around the house, tasks fall into two categories: DIY or service professional. Don’t get caught up in a DIY task that will take away too much time. That would certainly apply to getting rid of clutter from your closets or garage. That’s a great goal to turn over to Junk King Chattanooga.
