Time Management Tips for Every Leaders!

As a leader, it is always a challenge to manage the time efficiently. You can waste a tremendous amount of time by trying to multitask or focusing too much on unimportant details. Here are some tips that can be used to keep track of the time and to prioritise the things to be done.

*There is always time: You never “run out of time.” If you didn’t finish something by the time it was due, it’s because you didn’t consider it urgent or enjoyable enough to prioritize ahead of whatever else you were doing.

*Days always fill up faster than you’d expect: Build in some buffer time. Avoid over-scheduling by refraining from getting too precise with plans.

*You get more done when you’re in the zone: Some days you’ll be off your game, and other times you’ll be able to maintain your focus for 12 hours straight. Take advantage of those days.

*You should pursue activities that benefit both your professional and personal lives: Align your professional and personal goals for maximum efficiency.

*There’s a difference between pushing yourself and burning out: Hard work sometimes entails stretches of little sleep and relentless productivity. But even if you’re incredibly driven, you need to make time for relaxation or else your exhaustion will catch up to you and make you less productive than you otherwise would be.

*Multitasking kills your focus: Studies have found the brain expends energy as it re-adjusts its focus from one item to the next. If you’re spending your day multitasking, you’re exhausting your brain.

*Distractions can be controlled: Be realistic in accepting the time killing unimportant habits.

*Accomplishing something small is the best way to get working.

*Being a perfectionist can be a major crutch for day-to-day activities.

*More work hours don’t always result in more productivity.
