The Most Effective Time Management Technique Ever
« on: 06-01-2011, 13:48:38 »
I love reading time management and productivity books. There’s something about getting more done in less time that gets me excited. Every time I find a new tool or technique that can help me get things done faster, my day gets so much better!

Last week, during a very fruitful meditation session, I came up with an idea to boost my productivity and I decided to test it for a whole week before getting too excited about it. Well, I did test it and it worked GREAT! OK, enough suspense. Here it goes:

“Do what you feel like doing.”

“What? Are you serious? What are you talking about?” I’m talking about listening to yourself. Sometimes you’re in the mood to talk to people. Great! Pick up the phone and call a few prospects. Meet a potential partner for lunch. If you feel like writing, blog. If you’re tired, rest. When you have energy again and feel like putting together that spreadsheet you’ve been thinking about, do that.

Why This Works

Two reasons:

    If you’re not excited about something, chances are you won’t do a good job at it. Think about it. What are your chances of closing a sale if you’re thinking, “damn, I have to call this guy again. I don’t feel like talking to him at all!”?
    When you do what you feel like, you’re happier. When you’re happier, you do things much better. Not to mention that being happier is by itself an awesome thing you can do for yourself.

Aren’t I Being a Little Naïve?

I don’t think so. I’m not saying that you should never do something you don’t feel like doing. Sometimes we have to. But I’ve found that this last week I’ve been more productive than I’ve ever been before. I wrote down a list of all my weekly priorities and worked on them in the order I felt like.

Give it a shot and let me know how this works out for you.

Noting Down Tasks
In fact, this is the basic requirement to the success of time management. Don’t only rely on the ability of your memory. Trust pen and paper and note down the essential requisites of the tasks you are either given to or assigned to accomplish. You can easily use a to-do list in order to list up your tasks in a chronological manner in order to take a great control over the tasks, while keeping yourself thoroughly organized.

Prioritizing the Tasks
Not only listing up tasks does matter, but it is also very important to schedule the tasks while prioritizing the tasks. It helps you to focus on the essential ones while minimizing the time employment for non-valuable ones. Additionally, when you prioritize your task, it will give you the flexibility to invest more times on the events or objects which you find more necessary to your survival. Rate your tasks and assign them to different categories in order to ensure the success.

Planning a Weekly Schedule

Similar to prioritizing your daily chores, you must plan a weekly schedule for rearranging your life. It is always better to set up short term goal. So planning up for a weekly schedule always offers benefit. Keep planning for your regular works; however, you should keep some time for anticipated events. Sometimes, it could be possible even if we do follow a rigorous routine, but we still miss something having good priority in our life simply because we were not enough prepared to face suddenly occurred events. So, it is really essential to keep some times aside so that you can better manage your line of tasks, even when you are facing difficulties in your life. One more thing to remember, essentially you must design your schedule in a systematic form, you should keep the scope for flexibility.

Carrying a Notebook
Carrying a notebook is an exclusive option for organizing the adequate time management. A good idea or a brilliant idea can arrive in any time and if you don't have any kind of writing instrument in that time your brain can forget the initial ideas which have just come in your mind. Notebooks are the things where you can write your immediate thoughts or the necessary planning for serve you in a better way. The appropriate time management can be avail through the using of a notebook and that can make you efficient to have the proper time management and make you up dated all the time.

Learning to Say No is an Important Idea of Time Management
Learning to say no is the most effective tool for running with the proper time management. Most of the people under the blue sky become loaded by way of too much work. But the problems arrive when the people become overcommitted also. All the hazards occurred by the over commitments and the recurring work loads. When you have settled down your work priorities, in that time you have also prepared the low and high priority works. This is the most important thing in this manner to say no to the low priorities and if you do so, the loads which have arrived from the low priority works would be removed. In this way you daily routine will be added some extra time to go properly with adequate time management. The learning to say no or be the assertive in nature would provide you more time which was usually used in low priority works and respective commitments. In this practice you will be added with some amounts of time for the necessitate proceeding the essential works which have set up as the high priority.
