Three Steps to Effective Time Management

Organize and Prioritize Tasks

Lists are great for busy people. They can help you ensure that you are completing all of the necessary task and jobs that need to get done for the day. Take a few minutes each morning to write what needs to be accomplished during the day. Then prioritize which jobs on the list are the most important, and tackle those activities first.

Outsource: There are Only 24 Hours in a Day

You can’t do everything that needs to be done alone; and you don’t have to. Determine which tasks you need to complete yourself, and which ones can be delegated to other members of your team. Don’t try to do everything by yourself, to effectively and thoroughly complete tasks, divide the workload.

Simplify Jobs and Tasks

If there is a task I have to do on a regular basis, I find the best way to complete it in the shortest time. Sometimes the best way is to outsource a job or purchase new software that increases the productivity of you and your team.

Keys to Managing Your Time

  • Make a list and decide which task are most important can boost productivity.

  • Letting others help will greatly improve the end product.
