TIME MANAGEMENT 101
With the start of the New Year, now is the time to get control over your time, rather than have time control you. For both entrepreneurs and individuals with flexible schedules, proper time management can be an invaluable skill when attempting to reach your goals.
Using a weekly planner, look ahead to next week. First, block off the firm commitments like school or work.
Next, decide on two to three blocks of time during the week that will be spent furthering your career ie., business reading or researching, networking and making contacts, catching up on emails etc.
If you are a stay-at-home mom (or dad), create a block of time to accomplish your household management goals for that week, whether its running errands, paying bills, taking Billy to soccer, etc. or larger projects, like cleaning out a closet, planning a party, trimming the hedges.
Sometimes, the larger projects will require more than one block of time, so look to the next week or even the week after in order to complete the project. If you are under a deadline, keep that in mind when blocking out your time to be sure you get it done on time. Don't procrastinate! Working on your project on a consistent basis will get the job done.
Next add in blocks for leisure and exercise. These are just as important. If you take some personal time for yourself, you will feel more energized and better able to handle your other commitments and obligations.
By making time for the things that matter most, you'll have better control over your schedule and won't waste time doing things that are not moving you towards your goals.
