Increasing productivity and organisational skills through managing time
No one has total control over a daily schedule. Someone or something will always make demands. However, everyone has some control, and probably more than they realise. Some time is regulated and should be used for those activities. Even within this structured time, there are opportunities to select which tasks or activities to handle and what priority to assign each of them. It is the exercise of discretionary choices that allows you to control your time.
Managing our time can be dependent on the way we interact with others as well as how we are set up internally. Identifying how we manage our day with given distractions and meetings is critical in becoming aware of our own time wasters. A lot of barriers that are in our way can be either self-generated or tolerated. Barriers such as procrastination, being unable to say ‘no’, disorganisation and lack of focus can be overcome through the implementation of strategies resulting in a positive effect on the way we spend our time. Even knowing ‘what to do next’ can be a time waster as procrastination takes hold. When we have large tasks to complete, a plan of attack can make a lot of time management sense.
