Time management is a crucial and difficult skill– but it can be broken down into two steps: Dividing time and prioritizing time. For most people, it’s effective to divide time first by week, and then breaking down each day into small, more manageable chunks. A weekly routine is an incredible asset in time management. Additionally, it’s recommended to focus on prioritizing time. Ask what the most important tasks are. Ask what the most urgent tasks are. Finally, and most importantly, don’t expect everything to always go to plan– manage as best as you can, while understanding that it will never be wholly sufficient.
- I put aside one hour in the late morning and one hour in the late evening for noting telephone calls and messages.
- I plan a few hours on Saturday morning to draft contracts and other authoritative reports I couldn’t get to amid the week.
- You will refresh and changing your arrangement continually, and there will be times when something gets lost in an outright flood and you need to apologize to somebody whose booked call you missed.
