How to stop losing time

stop losing time

Lost time is never found again. – Benjamin Franklin

Time is our most valuable resource, but only a few of us know how to make use of the 24 hours of the day. This makes finally the difference – to know how to make use of your time most efficiently and to stop losing your most precious resource. For this post, I selected a couple of time-management strategies in order to organize yourself better. 

  1. Avoid Procrastination, because you will have to handle a bigger amount of work if you postpone it all the time.
  2. Analyze how you manage your time right now and see what you can improve. 
  3. Prioritize your work according to the goals you want to achieve.
  4. Say “no” to all things that are not essential to you and your work.
  5. Listen to your body and its signs. When you are too tired make a stop. 
  6. Delegate everything that is not your core business. 
  7. Establish a working routine and stick to it. 
  8. Break larger projects into mini-projects and tasks. The smaller the better. 
  9. Prepare your next working day, the day before – this makes the start easier.
  10. Good is enough. There is no place for perfectionism. 
  11. Set yourself realistic and achievable goals and priorities in conformity with them.
  12. Set time limits for regular tasks. 
  13. Combine breaks with recovery activities like leaving your desk, going out, having some fresh air, relaxation techniques, a small walk … you get the point. 
  14. Avoid distractions, because they are the main factor in making your work unproductive. Make yourself space and room to work. 
  15. Tidy up your working room to organize also your thoughts.
