What is the most important thing you need to do now? Is there enough time for you to achieve your dreams?
Below are ways you can best manage your time to achieve your dreams:
• Determine your top priorities
Priorities are things that are unavoidable. It is an “A” item and it is possible to have more than one “A” item in your list of priorities but in all A’S there is still an A1, A2, A3 and so on. This simply means that there is always an item that comes before the other no matter how important you place it.
• Never waste time
Since you are trying to manage time it is important that you do not indulge in an item for too long. When you have not yet decided on what to do in an item or get confused on it ,you should simply keep that aside and do something else that will be also productive in your list of items. Be careful so you do not get confused; always follow your list of priorities because anything you do outside your list is a complete waste of time.
• Make a decision
To do or not to do is what has brought you to the point you are. Making decision is one perfect way to avoid unnecessary waste of precious time. A clear cut decision is what can boost your achievement within a short period of time. Therefore, it is important to be decisive about every item you have in your priority list.
• Self discipline:
To be able to manage your time , you should make yourself do what you are suppose to do exactly as you have planned it whether your body likes it or not. “The self discipline of organizing your work and focusing on your highest value tasks is the starting point of getting your time under control and lowering your stress level” (Brian Tracy 2006- Time management).
The ability to set priorities and the ability to concentrate on one thing at a time are two major ways to be able to manage your time.
Time is never enough for you to do all you need to do, hence it is important to set your goals according to how you want to achieve them.
