25 Time Management Tips for a Productive Day
If you made it to this page, well than you must have signed up for my email list. So first off, congrats because this is an EXCLUSIVE set of tips just for my subscribers.
So exclusive I am begging you to keep this a secret between us. We don’t want to spill everything now, do we?
I thought there would be nothing more important to share first than a list of the 25 time management tips. This is the first thing to do discuss because we cannot move forward with our day if we are not in the right head space.
If you cannot create a schedule and be on top of your time, than you risk the negative results: not getting anything done.
Let’s get started
Wake up early
Set aside specific time in the week to do these tasks so that you cannot miss them
Plan your week on Sunday
Have 3 mandatories for each day - what MUST get done
Be realistic with yourself of what can get done on your list of to do
Build off of a solid morning routine
Have to do lists for each part of your life (personal, work, business, school, etc)
Give the simple tasks to others if you can
Put your phone away when you are working on things that do not require the use of your phone
Have a solid Google calendar schedule
Set a timer for each task so that you stay on track (This does not mean you cannot push the boundaries of this and go over time when needed)
Find your time of the day when you are the most productive
Do not go on social media unless it is part of your task
Take breaks and legitimately put them into your Google calendar schedule
Get good sleep
Organize your surroundings
Listen to music without words - symphonies work best
Say “no” until you are 100% positive it can fit into your schedule
Only have your mind set on ONE goal at a time
Give yourself one off day a week to ease your mind and to get inspired
Get up and walk around often
Focus on the specifics, not just the big picture. Choose very certain things in your schedule, not just “work on my whole Instagram”
Do work in an environment that suits you. Be honest: can you do work around others or are you easily distracted?
Are you a stay at home mom? Hire a babysitter for at least 1-2 hours a day so that you can get your work done and not be distracted
Enjoy yourself! Sounds simple, but the more stressed you are, the less you accomplish.
Spend more time succeeding and less time worrying about succeeding.
