Time management is a challenge we all have faced, both in our personal and professional lives. The work we can do to manage our time more effectively can have lasting effects that impact all aspects of our lives.
There are a variety of ways to have better time management, and some great tips from ZingTrain include:
• Get Organized: Organize your space, work in time blocks, and open and close your day strong.
• Don’t Let the Work Overwhelm You: Mentally envision the day, don’t let perfectionism slow you down, tackle the tough stuff first, only commit to the things you can do, ask for help, and take breaks (not checking email).
• Manage Communication: Only check emails at set times, use filters on email, use the right mode of communication, and manage other’s expectations.
• Be Conscious of Your Commitments: Honor your commitments, take action when you can’t meet a commitment, ask others to honor their commitments, and have a courageous conversation when others don’t meet their commitments.
