Let's be honest with ourselves, even during this pandemic we have found ourselves dragging slow, finding ourselves overworking, and having very little time to get things done or even to find time to spend it with those we cherish; and with this it can be difficult to figure out how to sort through all of this, so how do we do it? Time management. While it is easier said than done, time management can be difficult if you are not familiar with knowing how to use it to your advantage. With that being said, how can a person use time management in their daily life?
While to-do lists can be great and can help keep things in check, it is much better to schedule your day in time blocks for tasks.
YOU CAN'T WORK ALL DAY
No matter what we may believe we cannot be working all day, the reasoning for this is that we need to have some time to relax, to shut off our mind, to spend time with our loved ones. While it is great to get work done we need to have an allotted time for all of the other good things in life.
Deadlines have shown to help others to get whatever work done in a productive manner.
BREAK DOWN TASKS
If you do every task at the same time you are more than likely going to get burned out, and find yourself mixing tasks to a point that you have no idea of what is going on. Instead of doing that break down the tasks, making sure that each task has your full attention and gets finished before moving onto the next.
BLOCK OUT DISTRACTIONS
Turn off all notifications, make sure that your Facebook, Twitter, or whatever else might go off is shut off. All it will end up doing is distract you from the task at hand, subsequently taking you on a detour from what you were wanting finish.
