If you are like me and it seems like there is never enough minutes in the day to get things done on time. Give this simple yet helpful list a try.
1. Wake up early.
Start working on things before people and distractions even wake up. We know getting up early can suck sometimes but you have to get an early rise to get the head start on the day!
2. Make a list.
Write your tasks down so you have a plan of action throughout the day.
3. Set a deadline.
You take exactly the amount of time you give yourself to complete tasks.
4. Treat yo’ self.
Reward progress. Treat yourself every time you check items off your list.
5. Pick up the pace.
Work faster and more efficiently. Try to get things done quicker while focusing — to not make mistakes.
6. Limit distractions.
Don’t leave the TV on in the background. Concentrate on one task at a time.
7. Ignore the unnecessary.
Rank whats more important and focus on that first.
8. Start at the beginning.
Break your tasks down, and start with the simplest, easiest step you can think of. Just get the ball rolling.
We know we said concentrate on one task at a time but if you can handle it, combine tasks together that can be completed at the same time. Do you have to go to the store? Might as well pick up the dry cleaning on your way back.
You only have so much time. Get your friends, kids to help or pay someone to handle tasks for you.
