Can’t seem to follow through with requirements?
Don’t have enough hours in the day to do what you need to do?
When you are in your day-to-day tasks it can feel like there isn’t enough time to complete your work, let alone spend time resting and relaxing.
Wanting to use the productivity managers in your daily life seems like it can be false hope. You know yourself better than the free app on your phone, right?
Stop trying to use these different tools and resources in your life if you are not going to adapt to them. Putting your to-do tasks in an app is great and all, but that still doesn’t solve the problem of efficient and effective workflow.
When dealing with real time management, you have to create a real list with tasks you do in order so that you don’t spend time debating what to do next.
It is a waste of time deciding the next task. One of my favorite quotes ever comes from Stephen Covey saying, “Don’t prioritize your schedule, schedule your priorities.”
When you want to get your work done, you make sure you get the most important pieces done first so that you can get on with your day.
This is the most basic strategy you could or should use. There are many different strategies implemented by thousands that follow the same model. The bottom line is finding what works best for you and your team.
When saving time and a little bit of effort, what will you fill that empty space with? More work? More family fun? Better relaxation and peace of mind?
Everyone has the same 24 hours that you do. The same people feeling capable of doing more share the same amount of time with the people that are doing more.
The amount of time that you have in a day doesn’t matter if what you are doing isn’t meaningful to you.
This might feel a little bit off topic from a Time Management blog, but it is still relevant. Boredom and burnout happen when you are not interested in your work and what you do.
If you are burnt out or bored with what you do, you will most likely be sluggish through the workday and throughout the weeks following. How does wishing for more time matter if you aren’t using the time you have now?
This is some food for thought to bring what you are doing into focus. To be aware and transparent as you go about your business and life.
If you and your employees struggle with time management problems, contact With Purpose. This is to see how your team and business can develop and grow beyond where you are today.
To invest in both yourself, the people around you, and the business you run produces the greatest ROI.
Previous and current clients of mine were sometimes skeptical of what I bring to the table. Later, they told me after the beginning stages of my services that the value I brought in was surprising. You can have the same.
So you never forget, live your life With Purpose!
