Do you find that there is not enough time in the day to get everything done? Even if you make the time to do important tasks, if you are not properly managing your time, you will find that as time passes you are actually getting little work done. Here are three tips to better manage your time.
1) Make appointments with yourself to do those important items on your to do list.
2) Don’t allow any interruptions-that means no checking email and no answering the phone.
3) Use a time management tool. My favorite is the Time Timer. Slide the red timer wheel to the number of minutes you want to measure. As time passes the red wheel will become less visible until it totally disappears, meaning your time is up. The red wheel allows you to visually see how much time is left, rather than just looking at the minutes remaining.
