With the hectic schedules of your life, it may be very difficult to allocate time for each thing that you wish to do. Almost all of us have a busy office life, so every single minute of leisure, either spent alone or with loved ones, is a treasure. But there are other simple ways by which you can derive more of your normal day.
Irrespective of whether you are a businessman or a homemaker, efficient time management will help in improving your productivity and will provide you with ample time for other activities that you cherish doing. But some changes are necessarily required for effective time management.
Firstly, you need to keep in mind that there are only 24 hours in a day and by no means can you increase that. You all must have had bright days in your life where you achieved much more than what you might have expected to. But by sustaining that efficiency over a long period of time, it must have made you completely exhausted due to a cramped schedule.
So setting a realistic goal for each day is the need of the hour. You can opt for allocating time for doing certain given activities. Like, you can opt for working for 10 hours, dedicating 2 hours for chores, devoting 3 hours to your loved ones, and an hour or two for activities that you enjoy doing.
As said, though there cannot be an increase in the time that is available at your disposal, you can very well strive to make the most of it. Identify your strengths and dedicate more time on those areas where you excel.
Let us consider an example where your company is manufacturing a new car which involves engine design, technical aspects, and overall efficiency. If you have an eye for technical details into the making of the car, then you need to spend more time on that rather than looking after the engine aspect which would make work unproductive. Besides, doing what you are good at will increase productivity and will make you feel good from inside.
This cannot be achieved overnight, and it will take some time for sure. But if you have realized where your strength lies, sooner or later, you will achieve your goal. This will also engulf you with a sense of achievement of doing things that you like to.
You may very well go one step ahead by allocating certain hours of the day to do a given task. If you think back on what you are doing, you may as well find out that your productivity is doing a certain thing is at its peak during a particular hour of the day, so you may do it at that time regularly.
