Are you able to complete all the tasks during the day? Or maybe you don’t have enough time for it? You have at least 1,000 minutes every day to make everything happen. Let’s dive in and increase your productivity with 7 best time management tips!
Learn to multitask
Maybe the most indispensable rule how to “buy” more time is about doing multiple tasks. Getting your breakfast ready? Try to make a call at the same time! It doesn’t mean that you need to start 5 really hard things and fail them all. Combine daily tasks with your routine and you won’t notice how you win more time.
Do the hardest thing first
You definitely heard it a lot of times, but it works. We would not include this tip to our list if it doesn’t work. Even if you have 10 extra tasks that can be done in 10 minutes, do the hardest thing first. If you think that it will cost you too much time, delegate it! Sometimes it’s better to pay money for the work than spending 1 day to understand how it works and 2 more days to do it.
Audit your day
Definitely the hardest thing to do. You need to understand what are distractions and how to eliminate them. Take a pen with a sheet of paper and try to clarify where you wasted so much time, what you need to change, it must help you a lot!
Invest in more time
Rich people buy time, poor people sell it. Don’t have enough time to reach the destination? Take a taxi! Can’t afford it? Wake up earlier! Even if there is something you can’t afford, try to come up with an idea, how you can afford that, because it will give you more time – the only currency that is really important in our lives.
Have a free 10 minutes? Plan ahead! Time is your currency, don’t forget about it. We highly recommend to plan your next day, next week and next month. You can plan your future meetings, calls and even your goals. Devhance’s team worries a lot about deadlines. It helps us to measure quality of our work and to deliver more than any client expect from us.
Learn to delegate
Are you an entrepreneur or a web designer? It doesn’t matter because you need to delegate your work in order to reach new heights. Running a successful small business depends on the owner’s ability to think about what lies ahead and not get mired down in day-to-day operations. Look for opportunities to pass responsibility for specific tasks to others.
Take time for yourself
This tip is often forgotten in the hustle and bustle. However, taking care of yourself — i.e. getting plenty of sleep and exercise — is critical to maintaining any upward growth trajectory.
Making sure you have some free time each day to spend on the people and things you love outside of your business is important for your mental health, and can help keep you energized and passionate about your work. After all, it’s important to keep things in perspective.
