Time Management Tips That Actually Work

December 20, 2013

Career Advice

It feels like we could read about time management and productivity for the rest of our lives and still not quite understand it. But taking just a small amount of time to get organized may help us take control of our time in a big way.

And it’s important to understand a couple concepts as well. One, know that you’ll never have enough time in the day. Two, remember that about 2o percent of your efforts produce 80 percent of your results. The rest is probably distractions, procrastination, and unimportant tasks.

Entrepreneur.com wrote a great piece recently about time management and these were our favorite bits of advice:

  • Take the first 30 minutes of every day to plan your day.
  • Put up a “Do not disturb” sign when you absolutely have to get work done.
  • Practice not answering the phone just because it’s ringing and e-mails just because they show up.
  • Schedule time for interruptions.
  • Carry a schedule.

Which of these time management tips do you follow religously?
