Plan Ahead

You should never have to ask, “What’s next?” when it comes to your day. That means you have to make a plant. Before you leave work, use that last 15 minutes to plot out what the next day will look like in terms of achieving goals. The following morning, show up early to set your priority list and map out your day. This same approach can be taken for your weekends so that you can maximize your time off. The goal should be to get your important errands done and leave plenty of room to relax.

Eliminate Distractions

There are dozens of ways we get distracted through out the course of a day. Friends texting while you’re at work is a common distraction. Even if they’re only checking in or confirming plans, it still takes you away from the task you’re supposed to focused on. You could also fall down the “rabbit hole” of social media. If you’re part of discussion groups, then it is easy to get lost in a string of comments. There could also be coworkers who pop into the office to chat about things that have nothing to do with work. You need to find a way to curtail all of these distractions.

Delegate More

You might not be able to hand off some of your work assignments but you could ask for help. Around the house, you should definitely be delegate some of the “work load” of keeping things running. Occasionally that might mean bringing in outside help such as with a company like Junk King Monterey. This is the team to turn to when you need to get rid of junk. If you were to take on this type of task on your own, you could easily end up sacrificing an entire day off. Just think of how much time it would take to rent a truck, find day laborers, load your truck and then drive around looking for a proper disposal drop off. All of that is handled by Junk King. The only time you have to set aside is how long it will take for them to load up your stuff. And, yes, they’ll be doing all the loading. To get rid of your unwanted junk, turn the job over to Junk King. That is true effective time management.
