How do I become better at time management

by JC

Looking to improve my time management as I have a hard time trying to balance my time for the things i want to do and the things that I have to do.

For example, I would like to spend more time with friends and family and not work so much.

I figure that time management could be useful but I don’t know where to start.

Hi JC,

Feeling pressured by a lack of time is a major cause of stress and juggling all the different demands or work, family, and friends can be difficult.

When I work as a time management consultant with business professionals I find that we do two things. We work on improving their efficiency and then their effectiveness.

This is more than tidying the desk and writing simple to-do lists to get things done.

It is about developing a time management system that you can trust.

But this involves planning at the 90 day level, then bring that planning into your ideal week.

I talk more about a three step process at effective time management which involves changing habits and putting into place efficient and effective work habits.

That’s right....getting better at time management is about changing habits. Thus a systematic and structured approach is useful.

These free time management courses sent directly to your email will give you structured lessons and activities to improve your time management.

Good time management helps you to plan your day, week, or life, in a way that ensures that you are getting your high impact activities done, and at the same time don't feel overwhelmed.

All the best,
