Managing time for sleep, social commitments, work life, family and personal time is a daunting task on an everyday basis! In such a scenario, we have some useful (and lesser used) tips that can help us prioritize and be more productive. Read on...
If it's not absolutely necessary, don't do it.
Make a to-do list of all important tasks. Use tools like Evernote, ical and Google Calender to help you make life easier.
If it's too tough, too time-consuming or too energy-draining, delegate the task. For example Home Deep Cleaning can be outsourced to professional companies that provide cleaning services in Mumbai. And that time can be utilized for something more constructive.
If it doesn't serve a purpose, or make you feel good, get rid of it. Be it clothes, stationery or people. Cleaning up, invites fresh energy and keeps your head space clear thus speeding up the process of doing things.
If you're confused and indecisive, use the coin. When the coin is mid-air you'll know what is it that you really want, heads or tales!
It's one thing to have long-term goals, it's another thing to have short term or even daily goals. It could be as simple as, try 'x' new thing today, get in touch with 'y' friend today, finish 'z' assignment today!
Look for faster ways of doing things. With new age technology, everything has become easy. Ditch cumbersome opt for convenience. For example: Instead of visiting the parlour, make the parlour visit you at home. With apps like Myrra by Taskbob, it's easy to call a beautician home. You save on all the time you would take to travel to and fro, plus, the time you take to wait in line for your turn.
Do the important, tougher tasks before. this will leave your mind at ease and you may be able to focus on other tasks better.
If something takes you less than two minutes to do it, get it over with now. Don't leave it until later. It's just added tension. Send that mail right away!
Breathe. Give yourself space and time to be lazy or procrastinate sometimes. Don't feel guilty about it. It could be your body's way of telling you, that you need rest or 'me-time'.
Take A Break.
Take breaks at regular intervals, it will help you last longer, otherwise, you'll burn out!
Complete tasks of similar nature all-together.
Use a timer or stopwatch to manage tasks and the time limit you must finish them in
