What is good time management?

Improve your lifestyle and free up your mind for things you are really interested in. Stop letting your tasks run your life. Get on top of them by practising good time management in three ways. Read this article to know what is good time management.

Prioritise your tasks

Why you should prioritise If you have many tasks to complete, prioritisation is important for the following reasons: 1. Complete all of your tasks 2. Complete each task on time When you prioritise, there is no confusion. On top of that, you can work faster and with better accuracy. This is efficiency at its best. It also makes you feel good to be organised. How to prioritise If you have many tasks to do, don't overload your memory when you can get it down on paper or into your computer. List your tasks according to priority and tick them off as you go down the list. Simply use a free to-do or task-list software. Add, edit, move and delete tasks easily. Create as many lists as you need and share them with your partner. If the software comes with a calendar, your tasks are automatically reflected on it every time you update. You can even set reminders for specific tasks to be sent to your email or mobile phone at specific times or intervals. You can also use other mind tools like a mind mapping software and a (flow chart) drawing software. These are more suited for complex and specific tasks. It all depends on what you want to accomplish.

Stick to a routine

Good time planning involves a routine that you stick to. This is good for safety and comfort. You get your things done in a timely manner. In other words, predictability is a form of automation, saving you time and cutting down stress. When tasks outside your routine show up, it becomes easier to deal with them.
