Time Management - New Rules

Do you wish you had more time? There are only 24 hours in a day after all and unfortunately we can't change that. What we can change is how we spend that time and become more efficient with it. 

Block your time - set aside short periods throughout the day to focus on specific tasks. It is important to block this time in your calendar and stick to it like any other appointment.

Be prepared - make sure you have all the information and tools you need before you begin your to-do item

No distractions - during the time you have set aside, switch off the phone and close your office door. 

Keep a to-do list - but only put items on it that are actionable.

Prioritise - take care of the most pressing items first. Don't procrastinate!

Learn to say no - having too much on your plate can lead to poor performance and is very stressful!

Allow enough time - make sure you have alloted enough time to complete your task or the part of the task you had planned. 

Minimise multi-tasking - 100% focus makes you more productive

Good Luck!
