Time Management - Is this a cliche?

Below are some of the few tips that I know about Time Management:
A. Carry a book or a planner of what you have written or recorded and plan your priority for the week.
B. Assign a time table for those conversations or recorded minutes that will make you successful and are very important. Try to prevent a long list of to do list, because it doesn't work. It will just make your work complicated and you will create a lot of unfinished business.
C. Spend more time in the thoughts, activities and minutes of your meeting that produce good results. 
D. Have a break and have a Kit-Kat. Pull a way from what you are doing some time. Have a schedule for time interruptions. 
E. Start your day by completing your time plan and do it on your first 30 minutes. It is the most important time of your day. 
F. Before you make every call, take 5 minutes to list down the task to decide what kind of result you want to attain. Begin with an end in mind, and it is success. I will slow time down. And after your call or task, take 5 minutes to determine whether your desired result was achieved. Do a postmortem analysis. 
G. When you want a job to get done, you can opt to put or write a "Dont disurb sign"!
H. Don't answer emails when they pop up or you can delay answering a phone it rings or you can also delay replying back text messages. You can opt to disable instant email pop up.
I. You can schedule a time to answer email and return phone calls. Don't do it instantly unless it is absolutely crucial in your business to offer an immediate response. 
J. You can shut off social networks while you have important tasks to finish. 
It is always impossible to get all things done. Remember that odds are good that 20% of your thoughts, discussions and activities produce 80% of our results.

You can really manage time. Every second just comes and goes, and you can't even stop it... there,s no way to stop time.I have read that what you can really manage on your own is your ENERGY. At the end of the day, you don't say "I ran out of time" or "Time was short" but all you can say is "I'm tired!".

Correction... You CAN'T really manage time.

Hi laguna Snob
Where is your Flag Counter!?

Anonymous said...

Hi Laguna Snob, go Flag Country and obtain a new flag code, copy it and paste it in the Design under the Blog title column...
You can save the code somewhere and in case you mess about it on the setting of your blog, you still can put back the code there... once it set -up beware when you modify the code content,
and most of the time , we should put teh Country and pages view counters at same time.. Try again

Laguna Snob said...

Hi Laguna Snob
The prevuous sign could not be recalled as it lost in the net.
So you have to save up the code in case you want to do somehting on the template... just incase you accidentally erased the Code.
Now you did not enable the Country and the pageview icon, so we can not see how many countries and Pageviews have been detected!

Hi Laguna,
I think we go to have a plan to priortize things in the morning.
Know how to delegate people to help you. I beleve no one can handle all the thing, he should use best of his talent to do things best he can. But Who Can do that!?
