Are there times when you have felt that you have a lot of things to do but time is never enough? Other times when you think you have plenty of time and have nothing to fill it with? Or do you sometimes feel like you’re wasting a lot of time on things that aren’t important? If all or some of the above sounds familiar then proper time management can help you control how you distribute your tasks and reduce the stress you may feel when everything seems like a mountain.
Time management is the process in which you define the intervals of your obligations, but also the ones where all the things you love and enjoy will fit. It helps you separate what is urgent and important from what is not, what should be done first and what comes next. It makes you feel that you are in control of your life and the things that concern you.
In order to be able to use your time as best you can, you can divide its management into three important processes (steps):
- Recording and prioritizing the obligations and all the activities that concern you. After recording them you will need to decide in what order you will prioritize them so that everything that is important or causes you stress comes at the beginning, while the less important ones are done at the end.
- Cracking down on procrastination. Are you one of those who leave everything for the last minute, increasing tension and anxiety with doubtful results? By choosing when each task or activity will take place in advance, all you will have to do is follow your plan and reduce stress, watching your goals be achieved one after another.
- Commitment. The third and perhaps most important process. Everything that is recorded and prioritized has no value if it is not put into practice. It will depend on your commitment whether you actually use your time wisely or waste it unnecessarily.
In the next section, you will learn tips and tricks that will help you manage your time more easily and effectively and understand how this can have an impact on your financial management! Until then, do not forget the three main tips: prioritization, non-procrastination, commitment!
