1. Set Goals
Setting goals allows for a distinct breakdown of tasks that need to be done. To make sure you’re making the most of your time, remember to set SMART goals. These goals should be Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, and Timely.
Implementing a strategy and timeline will help hold you and your team accountable while tracking the progress made with each SMART goal. Breaking down a larger goal into multiple SMART goals will ultimately help you conquer that large task you’ve been dreading.
Prioritize your tasks based on order of importance. Make a list and check items off throughout the day, week or year to make sure you’re finishing tasks that lead to your long-term goals.
Is there something that needs to be finished right away? Place this item at the top of your list along with any difficult tasks you know you’ll inevitably put off until the last minute. You will have more energy and stamina to finish these tasks at the beginning of your day.
3. Set a Time Limit
Setting time limits for tasks will help keep you and your team focused and efficient. Setting limits will also help you discover planning issues before they become problems.
The time you allot for a task influences the amount of time it actually takes for you to complete a task. Something that normally takes you 45 minutes to complete may actually only take 15 with a time limit in place. Time management and increased efficiency also leaves you and your team more time to focus on other, more important tasks.
4. Take Breaks
Taking short, frequent breaks can save you from mental burnout. Avoiding burnout is important for a successful workplace as this can cause your team to experience a lack of motivation or even physical and mental exhaustion.
Implementing recuperation tactics may be beneficial in your workplace. Even encouraging 15-minute breaks during the workday can help your employees rest and reset to finish the tasks ahead.
5. Use the Right Tools
Use the right tools and resources to help with your time management. There are a plethora of applications that help track and prioritize your time. Also consider using outside agencies for some tasks that may be time consuming and tedious. Outsourcing services can be both more affordable and efficient than taking on everything yourself.
