Education: How to Manage Your Time Effectively

Here it is a small step by step model on how to organize your time effectively when it comes to solving tasks.

Create a list with all the tasks that you want to accomplish. Assign each task that you want to accomplish a realistic time span, and prioritize them in order of importance.

Start with the hardest and me8fd5cc86dc264056c30a9c4934f5acc54ae3dd6ost important tasks. Start your work day with the hardest tasks, as you will feel relaxed after you have completed them.

Find your most productive time of the day. There are people who are more productive in the morning, or others that accomplish more in the evening. Know yourself, and take advantage of it.

Take breaks. A coffee break and a small 5 minutes’ walk will refresh the mind, body and relax the eyes from computer strain.

Write down your progress. You will reach a sense of accomplishment the minute you write down the tasks you have done on small “post it notes” and move them from the pile of “to do” into the “done” category. It will bring a sense of accomplishment.

Reprioritize and rewrite your tasks regularly. When you have accomplished many tasks, and your list will have much more done tasks than to do, you can always start clean, and rearrange the current tasks in a new priority level.

Take time out for fun activities. Letting your brain to wander around in the activities that you find most relaxing is good for the creativity and improving work quality. Your body will also be pleased to take a break from sitting around all day on a chair. You don’t have to invest much time in these activities, but make sure that you have at least one of these moments a day.

Have a good night rest. If you want your brain to function at its highest levels, you need to plan around 8 hours of sleep each night. This will keep your concentration level up, will keep your mind energetic and alert, and will allow you to take decisions with a clear mind.
