“Work smarter, not harder,” malamang narinig mo na itong advise na ito.
Maganda pakinggan, pero paano ba ito gawin when it feels like you don’t have enough hours in a day?
Well, it all boils down to poor time management.
According to Donna M. White, LMHC, CACP of PsychCentral in her article 6 Tips to Improve Your Time Management Skills, “When you learn and maintain good time management skills, you’ll find freedom from deadline pressure and from stress in general.”
“You’ll be more productive, procrastinate less, and have more time to relax, which helps further decrease stress and anxiety,” she added.
Here are 3 time management tips that you can apply now.
- PRIORITIZE based on importance and urgency.
Corporate Finance Institute in their write-up about Time Management, says it simply.
Important and urgent: Do these tasks right away.
Important but not urgent: Decide when to do these tasks.
Urgent but not important: Delegate these tasks if possible.
Not urgent and not important: Set these aside to do later.
- ORGANIZE your tasks.
Sa dami ng ginagawa mo daily, there’s a tendency to be forgetful.
So, tip ni William Lipovsky in an article entitled Manipulate Time With These Powerful 20 Time Management Tips by John Rampton of Forbes, “Create to-do lists for each goal and project, listing all the measurable steps that need to be accomplished.”
Para mas madalian ka, batch similar tasks together then set a time limit in finishing these. It will help your brain smoothly transition to the next tasks instead of jumping from one activity to another.
- AVOID half-work.
Mag wo-work ka ba or mag bo-browse na lang?
Hindi kasi pwedeng you’re doing multiple things at once or tinatawag na “half-work.”
Sabi ni James Clear in the same article written by John, “Regardless of where and how you fall into the trap of half–work, the result is always the same: you’re never fully engaged in the task at hand, you rarely commit to a task for extended periods of time, and it takes you twice as long to accomplish half as much,”
Resist the urge to get distracted and keep your head in the game para matapos agad ‘yung ginagawa mo.
Then, don’t forget to breathe and set buffer time in your schedule. It is vital to recharge first before proceeding to the next task or meeting para mas focused ka and motivated, dagdag pa ni James.
