Do you ever feel like aren’t enough hours in the day? When faced with a massive project whether for work, or working towards personal goals, it’s important to use your time effectively. So, here are some tips that I find helpful.
1| Make a game plan... I always have a game plan when going into any sort of project whether it’s large or small. If you don’t have an clue on how you’re going to accomplish your goal, you’re going to waste a lot of time, that could have actually been spent getting things done. Come up with a plan and then go for it.
2| Don’t procrastinate… Thankfully this is something that I have a tendency to do. If it’s something you aren’t exactly excited about but it needs to get done all the same, it’s better to get the task/project out of the way instead putting it off. The quicker you get it done, the quicker you can move onto better, more exciting things. Simple as.
3| Use your time effectively… Being a time waster is right up there with procrastinating in my book. I’m not saying you have to have everything planned down to the minute. (Talk about added pressure you just don’t need) but don’t waste time either… and above all, don’t let avoidable outside distractions get you off track.
4| Be realistic… I have a lot of dreams and things I want to accomplish someday, but it’s important to be realistic. I’m not saying that you won’t have a chance to accomplish your dreams… but enjoy the here and now and do what you can where you are. You’ll be happier in the long run.
5| Make future goals to work towards… This ties in with point number four. Dreams can become a reality and if we didn’t have them, then it would be a pretty sad. You have to have something that you’re working towards. Maybe you don’t have the resources for your goal right now, but if you work towards your dreams, you’ll accomplish them sooner than you think.
