“Lack of direction, not lack of time, is the problem. We all have twenty-four hour days.” ~ Zig Ziglar ~
Time management is the key for a successful career and personal life. Many people are overwhelmed juggling time between their careers and families, leaving them stressed out and tired. Time is limited. Everyone gets the same amount of time each day and needs to learn how to make the most of it. Here are a few tips to help you control your time:
Make a Schedule – Google Calendar is a great free app to use to help with time management. By taking a few minutes each morning to create a schedule you have a more productive work day.
Avoid Social Media – Avoid using social media unless it is for work. Using sites like Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Instagram has become an obsession for many. It can eat up hours of your precious time every day.
Personal Calls – Don’t take personal calls during your work day unless there is an emergency. This will help you stay on track of your daily schedule.
Dedicate Time for Your Family – If you are married and/or have children, make sure you schedule time for them. Building healthy relationships helps reduce stress.
By taking control of your time, you can easily accomplish more each day. It helps you stay on top of your career by keeping you focused, increasing your work quality, and reducing stress. Learning to be disciplined with your time is the recipe to success!
