The habits of time management

Some people seem to get a lot out of their time, others not so much. What’s the difference?

I think it’s our habits.

What do we habitually do when we are
..given extra work?
..pushed for time?
..stressed?
..have some spare time?
..running late?
..tired?
..up against a deadline?
..spinning lots of plates?

Do those habitual reactions serve us well or make things worse?

Now, changing habits is not always so easy, so just pick one easy thing to work on.

Here’s an easy one…

At the end of each working day, get in the habit of writing down the five things you want to achieve for the next day. Leave this list where you will find it in the morning.

Here are 10 more tips. Number 9 is a good one that most people don’t think of.

My best wishes, Paul
