The Top 3 Tips to Finding More Time in Your Day
We all have the same 24 hours in a day and yet there are times when that doesn’t seem like enough. Here are a few ways to squeeze a few more hours in your day.
- Make a List
You’re a great list maker right? Now after you make the list, take the time to prioritize, cross things off, and then delegate – yes, that item may not get done the way you would do it, but at least it will get done!
- Make a Schedule
Let’s account for your day, your week, your month. Our best tip, schedule personal time first! (you, family, friends) And, then, schedule yourself a lot less. No is a complete sentence!
- Time Block Your Day
Instead of answering each email as it comes in or picking up the phone every time it rings, set a specific time (or two) during the day when you will respond. Then “re-train” your clients, family and friends so they know when they can expect to hear back from you.
People are always asking us how we manage to get so much done. At Starshine, we are a little company with a BIG presence and our secret ingredient is planning and organizing. At the beginning of the year we set forth our “big picture goal” and then work it backwards – by quarter and then by month. We then meet weekly to compare our lists, review our schedules and then go about checking those boxes. At the end of the day, it is all about time management.
