Regaining control of your time

Poor time management can be a frustrating and demotivating experience.

When we feel like we're constantly rushing to complete tasks or missing out on important opportunities, it can lead to stress, anxiety, and a sense of being overwhelmed. But by reflecting on your experiences and life challenges, either on your own or through coaching, you can identify the root causes of any problem and develop strategies for regaining control.

Effective time management is crucial for success in all aspects of life, whether it be personal, academic or professional. Managing your time efficiently is important. It maximizes productivity, reduces stress, improves decision-making, can increase new opportunities, and perhaps most importantly improves work-life balance.

Here are some of the best time management strategies:

  1. Set clear goals: Define what you want to achieve and set clear and specific goals. This will help you prioritise and allocate your time more effectively.

  2. Create a to-do list: Make a list of tasks that need to be done, and prioritise them based on importance and urgency.

  3. Use a calendar: Use a calendar to schedule your tasks and appointments, and make sure to leave enough time for each task.

  4. Prioritise: Focus on the most important tasks first and prioritise them accordingly.

  5. Time blocking: Block out specific times for certain tasks, such as answering emails or making phone calls.

  6. Delegate: Delegate tasks to others when possible, and focus on your own strengths and responsibilities.

  7. Avoid multitasking: Multitasking can actually be less productive, so try to focus on one task at a time.

  8. Take breaks: Taking breaks can help you recharge and refocus, so make sure to schedule regular breaks throughout your day.

  9. Eliminate distractions: Eliminate distractions as much as possible, such as turning off your phone or closing your email inbox during focused work time.

  10. Learn to say no: It's okay to say no to requests that are not a priority or outside of your responsibilities.
