Have Control of Your Time

articles lifestyle May 26, 2020

How do you use the time you have in your hands? Time management strategies only become effective when you choose to commit to them. However, that can be easier said than done.

You can choose to be efficient, or you can choose to go through every day with disorganized thoughts. You could choose to focus your time on tasks that are considered high-value, or you could choose to waste your day being distracted and not completing anything. 

The choice is always yours. 

You are free to do what you want to do. Perhaps the only question left to ask is this: do you have control of your time?

How To Deal With Procrastination

In order to start accomplishing things, you have to eliminate everything that is keeping you from being productive. When it comes to effective time management, the goal should always be to put yourself in control of your time. How you want to spend it should always be a decision you make for yourself. 

What does it mean to have time for you? It takes courage and a whole lot of discipline to teach yourself what it means to have time for others and time for one's self. 

If you want to break the habit of procrastination and stop wasting your time dealing with the non-essentials, the rewards you will reap will be great. You will experience higher self-esteem. You will have more confidence in yourself and develop that sense of self-pride. You will achieve lifelong experiences of success. 

But how do you do it? 

Identify the task that you've been procrastinating.

Push yourself to finish it no matter how long it takes. Focus all your attention on that task until it's finished. Doing so will save you a lot of time and teach you an important lesson to keep for life. You cannot always run away from difficult tasks. So instead, take on the challenge and complete it. 

Make a list of all the tasks you need to complete. 

Your to-do list will serve as your daily reminder for your daily grind. More importantly, it is putting your mind and thinking on paper. When you do this, you can clear your head of the thoughts about the tasks at hand. Then, you can focus your energy on doing something else. 

Pick the one that needs more attention and deal with it. 

Once you have completed the most challenging task on your list, it will be easy to move on with all the others. Work on the most difficult first and get it out of the way. 

Set a time when you start and finish work. 

Time is of the essence. So the next time you decide to take on tasks, make sure that you have calculated the time needed to finish everything. Not only will it serve as your guide, but it will discipline you to lessen the distractions and keep the focus on the work. 

Be fully responsible for all the actions made. 

If you won't be responsible, then who will? One of the most important aspects of being in control of your time is actually taking responsibility for all the actions taken. Refuse to make excuses or justify what has been done. Instead, take on the responsibility and deal with the consequences. 

Visualize yourself while you are at work. What kind of person are you? What kind of person do you want to become? The sense of urgency should always be there. When you can, repeat these words to yourself -- "Do it now!"

How To Do You Find The Time?

There are a lot of indispensable time management activities that you can do. You can use these tools to get your time organization right. Will you end up with success after this? 

Here are some tips to make sure success does come:

Make good use of a time planner. 

Whether it is a notebook or electronic, you can use these tools to help you keep track of your goals and successes over time. Plan each day like it was your last. Make sure that you take on all the opportunities at hand to be able to accomplish the goals you have set for yourself. 

It's more effective to use a time planner with a master list of all the goals to be accomplished. Remember that when you have a purpose, and you have set your eyes on it, no one can tell you that it can't be done. 

Always be guided by a list of things to do. 

It can be very easy to get lost in the process. Begin to write all the things you need to do within the day. Don't get overwhelmed by the long list that you have. It is the act of writing the list that puts you in control. You will need this list when you are trying to keep track of everything.

Organize your list by the level of importance.

Each day, the list of your tasks should be arranged based on priority. What do you need to do first? What is the most important? What is most urgent? Once the list has been organized based on priority, it is easier to pick one and work on it. 

The most efficient way to get things done is to write them down. When you have that list organized according to their value, the comparison of which things need to be done first won't be a question anymore. You lessen the time wondering what would happen if you choose to do one first over the other. 

The better control you have of your time, the more likely are you to succeed in life. With proper management tools, you can gain better control of your time and improve your sense of efficiency. Now more than ever, you are in control of your life and all the good things that could happen.
