You're in the right place my friend and I welcome you to my page.
I want to share some Time Management tips to help you out...are you ready?
Understanding Why Time Famine Occurs
Let's look at some of the most common problems we face...
1. Too much to do on the to-do list
Let me be honest with you..you will always have way too many tasks, too many priorities and too many things to do. And, you can't possible do them all..all the time. That's somewhat of a given. The problem is when you try to Do them all..it leaves you stressed out and unable to work on things that are most important.
2. Lack of progress on important goals
This happens when you fail to fully describe what the most important things are for you. For example...why is it that some people can never find time to volunteer at the church while others even with their busy schedules have all the time in the world for it?
It comes down to priorities. You need to set your priorities and then tame your to-do list according to your priorities.
Achieving Good Christian Time Management: 3 Things You Can Do Right Now
1. Say NO to unimportant tasks
If you have a HUGE to-do list..the easiest and the best way to start managing your time is to cut out all the unimportant tasks. Go ahead, do it right now..it will make you feel better and ensure a highly productive day.
Remember - first things first..second things second
2. Manage Your Commitments
Too many commitments? One of the easiest ways I know is to list them all out and write them all down. Need to pick up kids? Need to run an errand for a neighbor? Write them down...it helps you reduce stress. And, when you reduce stress..it helps you become highly productive and manage your time well.
3. Apply the 80/20 Rule
The 80/20 rule states that
80% of your results come from 20% of the things you work on.
Which means one of ways to manage your time is to simply recognize the 20% and reduce the 80%
When you apply the 80/20 rule you can achieve more results in less time and it also reduces stress.
