Imagine ... you are always feeling stressed. Your work is piling up. You never find a moment to relax. You feel overwhelmed all the time.

“Time Management is Life Management.”




1) Have a plan with all the tasks that need to be done. Put them into 4 categories:

* important and urgent
* Important but not urgent
* Urgent but not important
* Not urgent and not important 
2) Work in blocks. Batch similar tasks together. 

3) Learn to say no when people ask you for a favour or to do something for them. You don’t need to be a people-pleaser all the time! 

4) Watch less TV. Unsubscribe from Netflix.

5) Plan your week in advance. 

6) Set limits on how much time you want to spend on social media.

7) Don’t keep yourself busy just for the sake of being and looking busy. 

8) Start to delegate. You don’t need to do everything by yourself.

9) Don’t think that you need to be a perfectionist all the time. 

10) Get the most important tasks done in the morning.

11) Make planning and organising your strength. 

12) Disable notifications for useless apps. 

13) Try to automate tasks or to eliminate them completely.

14) Forget multitasking. Focus on one task at a time

15) Write stuff down so that nothing will be forgotten.

16) Always set reminders on your phone. 

17) Remove any kind of distractions when you do important things. Switch off the TV, the phone, the computer or any other noises. 

18) Set deadlines for tasks that need to be done (consider always some buffer time in case things go wrong). 

19) Tidy up your workspace so that you don’t waste time looking for things. 

20) Break big projects into small steps and tackle them slowly slowly. 

21) Get into a routine of doing certain things in a certain way, at a certain time. And then stick to it. 

22) Decline taking on additional commitments. 

23) Prioritise your tasks. What needs to be done today, this week, this month, this year? 

24) Don’t take on more than you can handle. 

25) Track your time spent and reassess whether you are working productively or not. 

26) Don’t worry too much about unimportant details. 

27) Make better use of your breaks. 

28) Don’t check emails too often during the day. Do it just once or twice a day. 

29) Don’t hold unnecessary meetings. 

30) Know how to use certain tools so that you can work as productively and efficiently as possible. 

31) Learn from your mistakes, so that next time you don’t make them again. 

32) Try to handle things only once. 

33) Don’t force it if it seems not to be working out. 

34) Make sure you use the right resources you need. 

35) Unsubscribe from emails you don’t need.
