Our advice is basic time management – keep it simple.

Here are our top 10 tips for better time management

  1. Start with a daily “to-do” list – this way you can view your jobs at-a-glance.
  2. Plan ahead and write everything down which you have to accomplish including timescales in your day book – this will add so much more clarity.
  3. Prioritise all of your tasks – important tasks always first.  This will give you the confidence and energy to continue, and ticks things off in bite sized chunks.
  4. Tick off the jobs as and when they have been completed – giving you a sense of accomplishment.
  5. Carry forward your uncompleted jobs to the next day and remember to date the page – this allows you to see what you have completed.
  6. Remain calm and focused and do not procrastinate – this will help with your mindset and get your “to-do list” done faster.
  7. Remember to take a break from your “to-do” list and congratulate yourself – this will enable you to step outside of the box and see what you have accomplished.
  8. Learn to delegate and personal outsource – this will save you time in trying to carry out jobs you cannot do, some things need to be left to the professionals!
