It’s been 8 days since I started blogging daily and during these 8 days I have learned that I really need to get ahead if I’m going to blog on a daily basis. I really need some time where I can sit down and allow my creative juices to flow. I need some time where I can just sit and type my heart out. I need some time where I can take pictures for my blog posts. I need time to be able to sit down and edit my pictures and posts as well. I need time! I need to MAKE time because this is important to me.
As I look at my schedule I know I need a couple of hours out of a couple of days to do what I need to do.
It seems impossible… because I need better time management.
I totally relate to what this man is saying.
Here are some GREAT time management tips from the Mayo Clinic.
These are the ones I know I’ll be applying to my life so that I can have some extra time to do the things that make me happy.
- Prioritize your tasks. Time-consuming but relatively unimportant tasks can consume a lot of your day. Prioritizing tasks will ensure that you spend your time and energy on those that are truly important to you.
- Say no to nonessential tasks. Consider your goals and schedule before agreeing to take on additional work.
- Limit distractions. Block out time on your calendar for big projects. During that time, close your door and turn off your phone, pager and email.
- Get plenty of sleep, eat a healthy diet and exercise regularly. A healthy lifestyle can improve your focus and concentration, which will help improve your efficiency so that you can complete your work in less time.
