More Info

Have you ever felt at the time of the clock works are shown at 11 before lunch when you have not even
had time to finish one job. Busy, but I think the work is not productive? One thing you should realize that
busyness is not the same as being productive. You can only spend so many hours without producing
anything. Sounds familiar? There are some principles you should consider in time management so you
can work effectively:

1. Structuring Plan

There's a saying that says "If you fail to plan, you plan to fail". If you go through your day without any idea
of what to do and how to do it, you'll spend most of your time to ask "What should I do now huh?". The
plan provides a map what lies before you that day. Allocate some time to plan so you can classify the
tasks according to priorities and time and provide workmanship.

Construct a plan in the morning or the day before. You can start from small notes only, or even put them
in the head for just a signal to the brain about what you must accomplish that day.

Use a smart strategy in preparing the plan. When do you usually feel your energy is high, both mental
and physical? For me usually the time between the hours of 10:00 to 12:00 is when I'm "on fire". During
that time I use to start or complete the tasks with high priority. The remaining time I normally use to
complete the jobs with lower priority.

The plan is not rigid and are always open to adjustment at any time. Do not forget to insert a time for
rest. In principle, you do for your own self-management. Learning to manage time is a good exercise for
self discipline.

2. Focus

Often the work we allow ourselves to be soluble in several jobs at once, call it multi-tasking.Maybe you try
to please your boss to say yes all the requests, but actually you realize you just overload yourself with too
stressful and not necessarily what your job will be good quality.

Doing two things at once rather than just dividing your attention but also makes you less focused which
consequently takes longer to finish the job. The focus of the work makes us more productive and reduce
the burden of stress. Create a priority scale when you need to finish some work in the same period.

3. Avoid Interruptions

Two things in the world of work is now becoming a source of frequent interruptions are: telephone and
email. Of course, these interruptions could not be avoided but use you in self-management skills to
handle it:

Answer calls from people who are interested only when you're focused work. If you should have to
answer, try to time as minimum as possible. You can call back when you're rather free.
Check email when certain times only. Okay, this is definitely very heavy. You can try. If not possible, try
not to answer all emails every time it comes. Answer email associated with your current job and avoid
Self-management is closely related to how you manage your time everyday. Do not let external factors
interfere with your productivity. If you are earning not only you but also your boss happy.Your life easier
and stress goes down ...
