Quick Tips On Time Management

Want to improve your time management?

Edward W. Smith, motivational speaker, author and TV show host, who specializes in quick tips on how to move your life ahead even faster, offers the following advice.

First, write out your top three priority goals.

Next commit to only working on these three until they have been completed. Then layout a plan that includes how each goal is to be achieved. Formulate a "time" budget that goes with each part of the plan, so you can understand what is involved with the projects.

Next begin to lay out a flow of the steps needed to be done across a time line and plug it into you daily schedule with "appointments" to work on specific tasks at specific times. Take into account your personal effectiveness level at various points of the day, scheduling more intensive tasks for when you are at your peak mentally. Say no to people and distractions that take you away from these priorities.

Finally, don't get bogged down trying to make things perfect, do enough to get things moving and go on to the next step.
