… The Next Steps To Successful Time Management
“The bad news is time flies. The good news is you’re the pilot.” ~Michael Altshuler
Steps 4-6 Of Successful Time Management!
Step 4: Successful Time Management Is To Use Time Management Tools
It is not easy to manage time without useful tools to guide you and help you in tracking your activities.
The most common tool that you can use is a calendar and appointment setting software.
This way, all your activities will be recorded, and you can set reminders to accomplish your tasks.
You have a personal digital secretary that will tell you what are the expectations given a specific period.
If you are a bit technical, you can also use a project management software application that can also keep track of milestones or accomplishments and identify the critical path that you need to follow so that your project or activities will not be delayed.
There are other tools that you can use to help you manage your time.
However, you have to remember that the basic things are enough not to complicate matters and make you end up confused.
Instead of spending time to become more productive, learning the advanced software can be a burden and will end up taking more of your time. The purpose of time management can then be defeated.
So make sure you stay on track when it comes to choosing your software. If it looks like it will become a hassle to set up, simply outsource the task of setting up your software so that you can remain on track toward reaching your goals.
Step 5: Successful Time Management Is That You Must Prioritize Ruthlessly
You have to know what is important and what is urgent as you go through these time management strategies.
A prime example is making sure that you prioritize your income producing activities (IPA). As an internet marketer many get caught up in busy work which simply does not create an income.
Now the activity may set you up to make the process for generating income flow more smoothly, yet it is not an activity that directly effects income.
Not all urgent matters need your attention.
Some urgent matters can take much of your time.
You have to discern if something is worth giving your time and if it will increase your productivity and help you achieve something.
You should create a list of all your activities and tasks for the day and set priorities.
Step 6: Successful Time Management Is To Learn To Delegate and/or Outsource
When it comes to how to manage time effectively one must know how to use resources.
This includes human resources.
If you have these resources at your disposal, then make full use of them by delegating some tasks.
Do not overwhelm yourself with so many activities.
It will only drag and stress you out.
In the end, the quality of your output will suffer.
Learn to create results through people and you will be surprised that you can achieve more.
Also, in areas that you are not excellent in, you will find that other people can produce better results and this can contribute to the overall success of your project or activity.
I always surround myself with people who are amazing at the things I’m horrible at accomplishing.
As you implement each of these steps correctly, you will see successful time management.
