“Have you ever noticed some people are able to stay organized while getting a massive quantity of work accomplished, while others appear to be busy but never actually produce results? Time management is the key to becoming a successful entrepreneur.” — Clay Clark
Each and every one of us gets the same allotted 24 hours in a day. But, why does it seem that some people are able to get so much more accomplished? How do they squeeze the most out of every minute of the day?
Well, although it may appear that these “time manipulators” have the power to slow down the clock, the reality is — of course — they don’t. They do, however, know how to properly manage their time, and it starts with the old adage, “Work smarter, not harder.” Simply put: the more efficiently you work, the better you will perform. And the better your performance, the less stressful your work environment will be.
You, too, can start managing your time more efficiently. And you can start tomorrow — right now, in fact — by applying the following powerful and proven time management strategies.
1) Start auditing your time — If you spend too much money, the first step to fix the problem is to figure out what you’re spending your money on. It’s the same with time management. The first step you need to take is finding out where your time actually goes. You may believe that you only spend 30 minutes on emails, but in reality, that task may be eating up an hour or more of your day.
The easiest way to keep track of your time is to download a time management app like RescueTime or Toggl. Use it to track everything you do for a week. Armed with this information, you can then make the appropriate adjustments.
