Time Management Activities To Help Make The Best Use Of Your Time
Do you have too much to do but have too little time? These ideas for time management activities should help you to better organize your limited time.
Life can get so busy at times. We find ourselves hurrying here, scurrying there, and wishing and praying we had more time to get all of our activities and the “to do” list done.
Consider the following time management activities to make the most of your time.
1. Make a list of your daily activities.
This is the first thing that you should do. Sit down and make a list of your daily routine and the time associated with each task. You can do this for a day, a couple of days, or even a week. Then evaluate that list and see where you are spending all of your time. You will most likely find things that you are spending more time doing that you thought or think necessary.
For example, if you find that you are spending 3-4 hours a day watching television, yet you are always pressed for time to accomplish things, then perhaps you can cut back on your television time. See how much time you are devoting to the internet, texting, telephone, friends, and so on. You can adjust that list however you want to make your time management more productive.
2. Plan your week ahead of time.
Getting a calendar and planning each week ahead of time will save you time and keep yourself organized. For this time management activity, write down the things that you have planned, such as appointments and events, and also write down things that you’d like to accomplish that week. Seeing your schedule will help you to be more able to plan your week more efficiently and actually follow through with things.
3. Let go of time wasters.
Another time management activity is to let go of time wasters. With time being very precious, it is important that you recognize where you are wasting the most time in your life. Once you realize what your time wasters are, you can then take action toward eliminating them and using that time in more productive ways.
For example, if you have the habit of talking on the phone for lengthy periods but don’t necessarily need to, then you may consider that to be a time waster. It may be hard to let go of time wasters, but I think you’ll find that once you let it go and have that time for other things, you’ll be pleased.
4. Don’t procrastinate.
Putting things off sometimes backfires on you, so try not to get in the habit of procrastinating. I once put off an activity that I had to do, thinking I could wait until the last minute, but when the last minute came I had so many other things to do that I was stressed about everything.
You can learn to manage your time more effectively if you will take some action and stick to the changes that you decide to make. Such time management activities will be well worth your effort.
