Hello readcashers, it is Herbert and I am very delighted to be given this Platform to Share what I have in mind in a form of an article. In this article,I will lay more emphasis on some ways on how to manage time properly. Suscribe and comment for more articles. Thank you.

If you want to realise your dream you have to make the best out of the time available to you. God worked within time and rested on the 7th day. After God worked for six days, he rested.

Sleep on time

You need to have enough rest it is good for you. One of my weaknesses when it comes to time management is when I do not sleep on time. I wake up very late which affects the whole day's work. In some cases, you have to forgo sleep to achieve your set goals. Having a good sleep will help you start your day right and become more productive.

God took a rest after his work. I do not encourage laziness but sleeping will not only help you propel you realising your dreams but it will also help you health. You can use the alarm clock to control sleep. Enough sleep will help you wake up on time and achieve better results. Sleep is a blessing from God.

If you have problems sleeping if not because you are worrying, then you'll have to see the doctor. Anybody who does not regulate sleep retards his growth physically. Your boss will not be happy when you meet him sleeping at work while job has to be done. Too much sleep is inimical to your progress. The average person ready to realise his dreams should not sleep beyond 4:30 a.m.. If circumstances are beyond your control you can wake up at 5 a.m.. Waking up at 6 a.m. 7 a.m. or 8 a.m. I cannot guarantee that you are ready to realise your dreams. In the weekends you can sleep with beyond 4 a.m.. Sleep is very important.

Plan your day

Many people do not plan their day. Take at least 7 to 10 minutes to plan for your day. Without planning for your day, your energy will be used up in different directions. After a day's work try to plan for the next day. It is very easy to do that. When you wake up the next day try to review your plan for that very day. write out your plan for the day and carry it around. As the day goes on check to see if you are following your plans and achieving them. If you do not want to write it you can keep it in your electronic device as a remainder. After every 3 hours check your plan for the day to see your progress. 20% of time spent in planning for your day will save us 80% chances of making mistakes. A work of about five hours if clearly planned will require only three or four hours to execute it. Plan your day.

Keep a to-do list

A to-do list is a form of reminder system that informs one that needs to be done and when it needs to be done in order to manage time effectively. Although the human brain has the ability to recollect,not all tasks can be recollected Accurately. A to-do list could be written into one's diary for easy access and urgent tasks can be highlighted with an asterisk. The to do list will guide you. Every month try to achieve more than 65% of what you stated on your to-do list. Every list you made circle out 6 urgent things that must be done now and start right away. The others can be accomplished later in the day. Allocate time to tasks in your to-do list.

Advantages of keeping a to-do list.

*Keeps the individuals mind focused on important tasks.

*Forgetfulness is unlikely to occur.

*Helps one to choose wisely especially in relation to activities within a day.

Organize and control

Controlling is very important for anybody who wants to make the best out of time. You have to know when to pick the phone calls ,use the social media or engage in a conversation. Organise yourself by putting files in their right location because it will save the time when looking for them. When you live in a disordered room you will delay in searching for things in the room. You should be able to know where this is or where that is even in the dark when lights are out. Draw away from what extorts time from you. Identify what takes your time and control them. Control yourself so you will not involved in unprofitable arguments which waste time. Organise and control.

Prioritize tasks in order of importance to manage time effectively

Although one may work according to a to-do list not all tasks are important.prioritizing is simply identifying important tasks and focusing on them. In your To-do list, prioritize your tasks in order of importance and devote much time to only important tasks. Prioritizing of tasks leads to effective and efficient time management.

To be able to prioritize effectively try answering these questions.

  • What is required of me?

  • When is it required of me?

  • What gives Me the greatest returns?

By helping yourself answer these questions you will be able to prioritize easily.

Break down prioritized tasks into steps

After prioritizing tasks,the important tasks should be further broken down into steps. This will help you to accomplish one step at a time with ease. Try as much as possible to complete one step at a time before moving to the next step.

Interact with the right people

This is another way of managing time.

Interacting with purposeful people instead of problematic people will help one effectively manage time. Interact with productive and positive minded people. Interact with people who believe in the existence of 24 hours in a day because some people believe that there is more than 24 hours in a day which is not true. Many people do not have a good attitude towards time. They believe that there is always another day or an extension to finish a task. That bad attitude towards time is contagious. Stay away from such people.
