Last week we shared information about the benefits of creating weekly action plans, to do lists and the importance of setting goals.
There isn’t much that’s more valuable to us than our time. In fact, time is so precious it is probably our most valuable resource. That’s why it is so important for us to make the most of it and take steps to waste as little as possible. Even more important is that we stay focused and direct our time and efforts toward actions that get us the results we’re working so hard to achieve.
When you start tracking your time and pay attention to what you actually do versus what you need to do every week, you’ll get a clear list of action items you can use as a guide to help improve how you spend your time.
Misplacing or losing important documents or pieces of information, having to repeatedly ask for vital information, waiting until the very last minute to complete a task or and neglecting to meet a deadline entirely are all unnecessary time wasters. Experiment with different organizational systems that work well for you and use them consistently.
