5 quick time management tips
Task list and management is one of the quickest and best time management tools going around.
Here are 5 task-related time management tips:
1. Create a task list
Create a task list or a to do list and then prioritise your tasks. I use the task list in the Google Suite – the feeling of accomplishment when you tick of those tasks is so good :)
2. Prioritise tasks
Do the must-do tasks first! It might seem like the most logical thing to do, but often many people do the quick things first, leaving the must-dos to the end of the day, creating stress.
3. Five hot minutes! Do the tasks that take 5 minutes or less second – this creates a rewarding ‘ticking-off’ feeling and makes the to-do list a little less daunting.
If you have a team, delegate tasks that it is not essential for you to do – this kind of leads into the next tip:
5. Batch bitch!
Batch your tasks into productive chunks of time.
i.e. Don’t continuously check your emails throughout the day. Schedule time to check emails – a suggestion is once in the morning, once in the middle of the day and once in the afternoon.
Check your socials once per day – schedule this time in your calendar.
6. Bonus Tip!
Following on from the above tip, you can set up an autoresponder in your emails that says something to the effect of “thanks for your email, I am checking emails twice per day right now” – CHECK TIP FROM 4 HOUR WORK WEEK. This way, your audience will know when to expect a response from you :)
Even if you only do 2 of these, I promise you will feel more organised!
