5 Best Time Management Tips + FREEBIE

When Iโ€™m asked or approached about what I do, and I answer that I am a blogger, photographer, that I create content for brands, create e-courses, consult bloggers and small businesses and run a {not so small} business for the past 4 years {phew, outta breath here ๐Ÿ˜…} people donโ€™t understand how the hell I find time to get all these things done, and also travel the world as often as I do.ย 

So no, I havenโ€™t invented a time machine just yet that stops or goes back in timeโ€ฆ Whatโ€™s my secret? Managingย myย time wisely. In other words, better management of the activities I do on a daily basis to make the best of the 24 hours we all equally have.ย 

I believe good time management is something everybody should be good at {I mean almost everyone feels like they donโ€™t have enough time, which is too badโ€ฆ}, but it is without a doubt one of the most important things for bloggers and independent business owners.

Good management of our time as business owners is an important skill that has a direct effect on the performance of our business, and no less important to our personal well-being. After all, so many business owners feel like they work all day without a break, and even though they feel like they dedicate almost no time to leisure, and work continues to slide into their personal lives, they still donโ€™t seem to have enough time to get what they want done in order to effectively maintain or promote their business.

To be perfectly honest, I was always pretty good at managing my timeโ€ฆ but since I no longer work within an organized framework that manages the most part of my schedule {for example, being a university student or an employee}, I have had to rethink and recalculate how I use my time. Organizing it all by myself, I have really succeeded at enhancing my time management skills thanks to which I am able to achieve more goals in a shorter amount of time.ย 

ย 

In this blogpost, I will share my five best tips with you in this post for better time management โ€“ so you could apply them yourself! {And thereโ€™s a special surprise at the end of the post!}.

ย 

So you may feel short on time {otherwise maybe you wouldnโ€™t be reading this}, but I do recommend that you make yourself a coffee and free up the next ten minutes to read and internalize the tips listed in this post. If you decide to apply them, you will soon learn how to better manage your time and with a lot less stress!

TIME MANAGEMENT TIPS #1 - BREAK IT DOWN

One big goal is made up of many little tasks and sub-tasks

A big goal can appear stressful and unattainable. For example, when my goal was to first start my blog, I could have easily lost myself to this great goalโ€ฆ I mean, what does starting a blog even mean? After much deliberation in attempt to clarify with myself what it is I should be doing, I decided to make a long list of all the little tasks that would help me achieve my goal. These little tasks included choosing my blogโ€™s niche, its name, buying a domain and an online hosting service, branding, and finding the right template.

But even these felt like they were too much for meโ€ฆ.

So I decided to break them down into sub-tasks, easier to get done.

For example when choosing my niche, a sub-task would be โ€œbrainstorm niche ideasโ€ and another would be โ€œthink of 10-15 ideas for posts under this nicheโ€.

I recommend breaking down any big goal by designating it at least one page in a large notebook and listing small tasks and their sub-tasks.

The more you simplify your tasks, the easier they will be to implement, and the closer you will get to your ultimate goal.

TIME MANAGEMENT TIPS #2 - PRIORITIZE

Which tasks are more and less important

After youโ€™ve prepared a neat list of goals, small tasks, and sub-tasks, itโ€™s time to decide which tasks are more important than others.

If I go on with the same example of starting a blog, then of course the small task of finding my blogโ€™s niche is more important than finding its name, which is more important than the small task of purchasing a domain.

I mean it makes sense doesnโ€™t it? the completion of each of these small tasks is based on the completion of the previous task {you can not buy a domain before you know what your blogโ€™s name will be, and you shouldnโ€™t choose a blog name before choosing a niche, right?}.ย 

You may have another important task, for example, keep up healthy eating, its sub-task is to shop for fresh produce at the market. In a situation like this one, you should really decide which sub-task is more important to do that day โ€“ โ€œfind a niche for the blogโ€ or โ€œbuy fruits and veggiesโ€ In the same way, Iย  recommend that you prioritize your โ€œmini-tasksโ€ based on the same logic of performing tasks in order of importance.

TIME MANAGEMENT TIPS #3 - ADOPT A RELAXING MORNING ROUTINE

An organized โ€˜to doโ€™ list is the perfect recipe for a no-stress day.ย 

Every morning I treat myself to a delicious breakfast and then I have my coffee and jot down my daily list of tasks.

I donโ€™t do anything else until finish writing down all of the little tasks I intent on getting done that day.

I donโ€™t answer emails, or take any work calls, and I donโ€™t even open an internet tab, to avoid getting distracted.

Once the day is in order, and I know exactly what it is Iโ€™d like to get done during the day,ย  I donโ€™t have to spend unnecessary time during the day to think about โ€œWhat I should be doing right nowโ€ or feel overwhelmed by my great goals โ€“ every time I finish one small task, I look at the list and see what my next task is.

And one more thing โ€“ insert into your list what needs to get done that same day. It can even be trivial things like answer emails or comments on your blog and instagram. Focusing on these as a defined task, as opposed to a scattered manner throughout the day โ€“ will save you lots of time!

TIME MANAGEMENT TIPS #4 - AVOID TRYING TO GET TOO MUCH DONE

Allow yourself the right amount of time to get things done and complete your list of tasks

Sometimes we set ourselves too many tasks to do in one day.ย This has happened to meย all of the timeย when I was just starting out.

We canโ€™t always know how long it might take us to complete a task, especially if itโ€™s not the kind of task performed on aย  daily basis. Which is why I always list a limited amount of sub-tasks to complete a day, plus an additional 2-4 extras I can get done if Iโ€™ve finished my tasks for the day with spare time. Of course, I list the most urgent tasks at the top, followed by the less important tasks, according to priority as mentioned in tip number 2.

TIME MANAGEMENT TIPS #5 - HIGHLIGHT EVERY COMPLETED TASK

A neon-colored pat on your back

The thing I enjoy doing most during my workday is to proudly highlight the tasks Iโ€™ve completed โ€“ and I do it right after Iโ€™ve completed it!

I know it sounds funny, but the sense of satisfaction I get from a planner all in bright yellow is a hard feeling to transcend ๐Ÿ˜‰

Some of these tips may seem difficult to get to on a daily basis {โ€œwho has time to make lists? I hardly get anything done!โ€} and some might seem trivial to you {letโ€™s be real, how many of them do you really use? ๐Ÿง}, but I assure you that from the very moment that I took this work method upon myself I get so much more done than I used to, and no less important โ€“ I am less stressed. Donโ€™t freak out if at first you have trouble and donโ€™t see immediate results, the longer you try and implement these tips in your life, the more they will become like second nature to you, and youโ€™ll see that with time youโ€™ll be getting through your daily tasks like a pro.

    1. Super gald to hear that you found my tips useful ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m sure that if you’ll follow them long enough they’ll become a second nature

  2. Prioritzing is so important, take care of the things that need to be dome now and the low hanging fruit that are going to get you the most with the effort you can put into at the time. I love the idea of the sub tasks as well, so putt a few of those together and knock down some of the bigger things that need to be done. Great stuff, much appreciated.
