Stop Wasting Your Time!

Best 10 Tips to better manage your time:

1. Organize yourself
Organize your work space; keep an up-to-date appointment calendar, etc.

2. Plan-Schedule
Ascertain how long tasks will take, if they can be accomplished in whole or in part, and determine/negotiate deadlines.

3. Set Priorities
Determine what's really important (both at work and at home)

4. Don't try to juggle too many tasks
Balance rest, relaxation and other everyday activities with periods of work

5. Establish effective work techniques
Start with the most difficult tasks; organize your work space, etc.

6. Be Adaptable
Leave time for the unexpected — oversleeping, missing your bus, looking after a sick child, etc.

7. Have Foresight
Focus on what will help you most in achieving your goals (work-wise and personal)

8. Learn to say "no"
Particularly when it's impossible to take on additional tasks or to meet certain deadlines

9. Delegate
Determine what others can do for you — or instead of you

10. Don't procrastinate
Just get it done
