Organizing time correctly? 

1. Make a daily plan: You can write a daily plan for what you will do in the morning to divide and organize the time throughout the day. This plan helps you to put a glimpse and visualize how your day will be, what are the tasks required of you, and determine the time for sleep and rest? If you want to achieve a time balance, you can stick to this plan and do it in the best way possible. Steps to create a plan:

  • Determine the tasks that help you achieve your goals and allocate time to implement them.
  • Get rid of unimportant small tasks.
  • Know well what you need to do every day.
  • Divide the tasks so that they are completed on the specified day.

2. Setting a time limit for each task:   You must be very clear when planning your day by setting a time limit for each task, for example, task A from 10 – 3 because this allows you not to spend one task on the other, eat food on time and also do other activities.

3. Reward yourself for any achievement: If you do anything, try to celebrate it. How you reward yourself is up to you to motivate yourself to stick to the next day’s plan. Helps you increase your time management skills along with the ease of carrying out other tasks.

4. Using a calendar: Having a calendar helps you manage your daily activities. 

An example of that :You can use the mail, notes, notebook or mobile phone, they all have a great role for you in organizing the time.

 5. Make a long list of goals: The long-term goals list works in organizing your daily projects and plans and how to divide your time.

 6. Set deadlines: The most important thing for organizing your time is to know when you need to finish your task. And write deadlines clearly on your calendar in an organized way so you know when you need to finish them?

7. Learn to say “no”: Avoid deviating from the daily plan that you set in the morning because you may face temptations to do other activities to prevent multitasking and the need to do important activities first so as not to postpone any of the tasks at a later period.

8. Finish your goal early: When you aim to finish the task or goal at a specific time. Some may be late to finish the task, but when you set an early time to finish the task, you can complete it on time.

9. Allocate time for activities: You can set a time for different activities, such as half an hour for reading or doing a favorite exercise for you, carrying out your own hobby.

10. Make sure you have a watch next to you at all times:   Before you start carrying out any task, have a watch next to you. Because you may be too tired at work and lose track of your time. In the event that there is a huge watch in front of you to show you the exact time.

11. Make a reminder on the mobile phone 15 minutes before the end of the task:   One of the most important functions of the calendar is the reminder. If you have an important meeting to attend, you can set this reminder 15 minutes in advance.

12. Focus: We mean not to multitask and focus on performing one task at a specific time, then move on to another task, and the most important thing is to focus on one main task. It is preferable to close all the applications that you do not use, browsers and various social networking sites such as Facebook to focus attention on what you do only and implement it efficiently.

13. Avoid Distractions: What distracts you from work? Is instant messaging? Phone calls? All of these things are deviations from your main goal to avoid using chat and do not log in to any chatting site when you start any work or else it will distract you. Because when doing any important work, you should turn off your phone because it helps you focus better.

14. Do not pay attention to unimportant details: do not pay attention to unimportant details in the event that the task is not done the way you want it. So as not to weaken your enthusiasm to do the next task.

15. Prioritizing: You can’t do everything at once. Learn how to prioritize and which one is most important to do first and leave the rest for later. You can apply the 80/20 principle, which is a key principle in setting priorities to increase your productivity.

16. Time analysis:   Observing the time well is one of the most important things that help you in improving the effectiveness of your time management, by recording the activities you want to do in detail during a certain period, for example, a week. To know how you spend your time, analyze your activities by writing the activities that achieve your goals well and can be categorized in the following way:

  • Urgent and important matters.
  • Urgent matters, not important.
  • Important .
  •  Things are not urgent and not important.

In this way, you may find that you spend more than 30% of your time on unnecessary activities. This analysis helps you decide

17. Delegate: If there are things that someone can do better than others or those things are not so important, you can consider delegating someone else to do them so that you can focus on the important tasks.

18. Doing similar tasks together: You can classify similar and related tasks together. For example, do basic groups A (writing articles, books), B (training) and C (workshop development) so that you can make time to make phone calls.

19. Eliminate time wasting elements:   Do you take a long time away from your work browsing Facebook or Twitter or checking e-mail? You can allocate a specific time after completing the daily tasks to follow up on all these things and work to close them while doing the specified work.

20. Leave free time between each task and the other: Do not try to do all tasks continuously, and leave an interval of about 5-10 minutes between each task and the other because this helps you to finish the previous task and start the next stage in a good way.
