Step 1. Step 1.
Parties, phone calls, interviews, etc., are all part of the job.
Relaxing and recharging.
Even though I don’t know you personally, I am pretty certain that at least one item on the list is something that you don’t like doing and that you will avoid.
If you notice yourself trying to avoid any of these, don’t be afraid to put it on your calendar. Recall your WHY, and you will be able to overcome this temptation.
Your mission is higher than your own. It is not possible to serve this purpose if you avoid things that are uncomfortable.
Practically speaking, rather than spending hours avoiding tedious tasks, you can save your time and just do them. They’ll be done, which will make you happier. You’ll be more confident in your abilities and feel more confident because you will get better at it through repetition and practice.
Step 2. Step 2.
Planning is the best way for you to start or end your week. Reflection on the past week can help you to plan for next week.
Focus on the most important questions, such as:
What is the most important thing for me to build my business?
Which tasks can I delegate to others?
What are the most valuable tasks I can do for my business, and what tasks can I only do?
You may also want to ask yourself these questions during your planning time: Are I on track to achieve my goals? What is the next step? You must keep track of your progress towards your goals. Because of the gratifying results, watching your income rise can make anyone a “numbers guy.”
You will have plenty of time to make adjustments and track your progress each week by tracking it numerically or using other milestones. Unexpected events can happen, and sometimes your plan may be thrown out of whack. Keep track of the changes that need to be made in the coming week or month, and you can keep moving.
Aim for big chunks of planning time. Focusing on anything requires continuous attention. One hour is a great time frame. Sixty-minute bursts. One 60-min. The session will be more effective than six 10-minute bursts. Session. It doesn’t matter where you are, and it doesn’t matter if you don’t have great inspiration.
Part of your planning time should be spent reviewing what happened last week and deciding which tasks you want this week. After you have a list of tasks, it’s time to prioritize them. You can make this as simple or as complex as you want. Some people like to be able to choose between three levels of priority: must-have, nice-to-have, and optional. They can use colored pens or a program on the computer to track this. Others might just highlight or mark the most important tasks of the week.
Step 3. Step 3. Allow time to relax and recharge.
Although it may seem odd to include this step in a series about time management, it is actually quite important. Successful time management is about managing your energy and yourself. It is important to learn how to keep your energy high and to let go of any habits that drain it.
My ideal life would be one in which I could work with laser-beam clarity on my business and then have fun and enjoy the same.
What is it that relaxes you and recharges your batteries? This can be achieved in a variety of ways. Some people connect with nature, others with others, and others with self-reflection. A mix of these three is my personal preference.
No matter what your preferred way of spending your time is, schedule at least one week. That is the opposite. You may be a highly energetic person who loves people. Your challenge is to find the quiet time you can spend alone doing something you love, such as reading or solving puzzles. You might be reserved or prefer spending time alone. It can help you get out of your head and connect you with important people.
Here’s a look into your weekly schedule. Next time we will discuss your daily to-do lists.
These practices can be incorporated into your weekly routine. You can change the way you spend your time. It will most likely make a difference in your results. Change the way that you interact with time if you’re fed up. -Marcia Wieder
