What we invest our time in not only say a lot about us as a person- it creates the world we live and vibrate in. Who wants a future of brilliance and no bullshit? Uh, me! The only way to achieve that is to master your ability to manage time effectively without wasting precious seconds on empty agendas and meaningless tasks. These things are obviously not clear everyone if they were I wouldn’t be writing this blog post.
So how can you effectively make the most use of your time? Well, I’m glad you asked. Here are 3 tips to help you in your day-to-day today life. Hopefully, after reading this you will be more productive, feel better, and waste less time on stupid stuff that in no galaxy will ever get you to where you need to be.
1. If you need to address an issue, pick up the phone.
If the person does not answer your call or your request is not completely in a timely fashion, follow up with an email, and then another phone call. Or better yet, DO IT YOURSELF.
2. Stop using excuses for not doing something.
We all do it. Admit it- you skipped yoga because traffic was too much of a headache. You started a fight with your boyfriend instead of addressing a reasonable solution to something that was frustrating you to your wit’s end. Or how about that raise you need to survive because you need to move out of the neighbor you currently live in since people are getting shot and stuff? Yeah, you need to grow some balls and speak up for the things you need, the things you want, whatever the heck it takes to keep your sanity- get it and stop making excuses.
3. Create a daily and weekly schedule according to all your upcoming engagements and priorities.
By creating lists of what you need to get done from one day to the next will help you get the most out of your day and completing your most important tasks at hand. Every Sunday night you should come up with a plan for the week. How do you want your week to play out? What would you like to do, or get done this week? Write it down. Keep a list in your kitchen where you can write down the things you need to grab from the store on your next trip out, that way you don’t miss anything and have to backtrack- leaving you more time to do other things, fun things.
