Employee Tips 101: Improving Your Time Management [PART II]


In the first part, we discussed about the three main things you have to spend your time on: thoughts, conversations, and actions. In this way, you would be able to eliminate the pressure that comes from feeling like you do not have enough time. How? Because you take time to carefully consider each option, you would not rush into making decisions, which diminishes your chances of making wrong actions.

HRT Staffing Services in Decker Dr. Irving Texas believes that time management is the key to success. It allows you to take control of your life rather than following the flow of others. You make more sound decisions, feel more in control, and make people notice your value. Leaders in your business will come to you when they need to get things done and that increases your exposure to boost you in life for advancement opportunities.

  • Practice the following techniques to become the master of your own time:
  • Carry a schedule and keep a record of all your thoughts, conversations, and activities for a week. During the course of a day, this will help you understand and realize how much you can get done, where your precious time is going, how much time are actually spent producing results and how much time is wasted on unproductive thoughts, conversations, and actions
  • Assign a time to any activity or conversation that is important to your success. To-do lists get longer and longer to the point they are impracticable. Appointment books are more operational and effective since you can schedule appointments with yourself while creating time blocks for high-priority thoughts, conversations, and actions.
  • Always plan to spend at least 50% of your time engaged in thoughts, activities, and conversations that produce the most results.
  • Schedule time for interruptions. Yes, you can plan time to be pulled away from what you are doing. “Office hours” is actually another way of saying “planned interruptions”.
  • Take the first 30 minutes of every day to plan your day. This is the most important time of your day—the time you schedule to schedule time.
  • Before every call and task to decide, take five minutes to think about what result you want to attain. It will slow down time to help you know what success looks like before you start.
  • Put up a “DND” or “DO NOT DISTURB” sign when you absolutely have to get work done.
  • Block out other distractions like Facebook and other forms of social media unless you use these tools to generate business.
  • Remember: It is impossible to get everything done. So, prioritize!
