3 Steps Toward Improving Your Time Management Skills
Success doesn’t come without good time management skills. But time management doesn’t come easy for some. If you need help getting more done, use these tips to help you do better. Instead of trying to implement a bunch of things all at once, work on one or two concepts that help you manage your time better.
Learn to Delegate
As an entrepreneur, you can’t do everything. That would be like asking the quarterback to snap the ball, block the defense and get the goal. Find people you trust to take on time-consuming tasks that let you focus on the money-making aspects of your business. Check into outsourcing activities that are time sucks that don’t make you money. You may find that the time savings are worth what you’ll pay a company to do the tasks because you can focus on other activities.
Have a Plan
You have a goal. Now, work out a plan that will get you to your goals. Schedule your time to use it more efficiently, based on the plan. Long-term goals are more achievable when you break them down into smaller tasks. Use your digital calendar to help you stay on track. Use technology to reduce the little tasks that eat up your time. Schedule social media posts for one week all at once. Autopay your bills. Free up your time from distractions to focus on the big picture.
Learn to Set Boundaries
Say no when you don’t have time for something. Keep meetings on track by sticking to a schedule. Be concise when communicating, not to the point of being abrupt, but get to the point quickly. Guard your time wisely. Create a culture where you reclaim your productivity by saying no to time-thieves. You’ll have more time to spend with friends and family because you’re doing more during your day.
