If only we had more than 24 hours in a day, we would get so much more done, wouldn’t we?

As a business owner it can be so difficult to fit in endless amounts of work and it is important that no part of the business is ignored after all …. Time is money!

Here are 5 ways in which you can improve your time management skills:

  1. Make a List – make a list of all of the tasks you have to do.  A to-do list is a great way to keep track of what you need to do and you can do this on paper, using a smartphone or other device.  Keeping a list will ensure you get everything you need to do done and on time.
  2. Set Goals – Consider where you want to be in six months, a year, five years etc. and set yourself clear cut goals in order to manage your time effectively and keep distractions to a minimum.
  3. Avoid Distractions – stay focused on what you are doing and you will more done.  If you can turn off your phone, work in a quiet office, only check your emails once an hour, you will be completely focused and have more time to complete your work efficiently.
  4. Prioritise – There is no point having a to-do list if you don’t prioritise.  Only focus on the top three items on your list and then move on from there.  By completing the most important tasks of the day, you can rest assured you have spent your time wisely.
  5. Only take on as much as you can do – you may be keen to get lots done but if you add too much to your list, you will become overwhelmed and get less done.  Don’t take on too much.

The most important thing about time management is that you become more productive but you still have time for the things that matter.
