How to Manage Time Effectively

One of the most effective skills one can achieve in life is effective time management. If you're not managing your time properly, there's no way you can get to your goal. Here are some tips you can use to value your time in these modern days.

Time Is Valuable - So Why Waste It In Your Life Planning?

We all know that time is absolutely valuable, and in many more ways than the ‘time is money’ cliche would have you believe. The only resource we are always burning is time, and our relationship to it can change perceptually for very different and sometimes not altogether-consistent reasons. However, it’s fair to say that we all have a limited amount of time on this Earth, each and every one of us. While stressing about this and rushing from point A to point B as fast as possible will only leave you feeling worries and overly unhappy, it can be extremely important to make the systems in your life as effective as a possible. This will help you make use of your time to the extent that you can.

In this article, we hope to explore methods to help you make an ally of time, not to simply lament its passing, as after all, none of us can change that. Instead, consider how an effective mindset can plan correctly in the modern day, in order to grant you the most wonderful time possible:

Filling Dead Space

It can be extremely worthwhile to try and find methods of filling the dead space in your life with something constructive or personally useful to you. By ‘dead space,’ we mean time spent in an environment that might restrict you. For example, the work commute is perhaps one of the main examples of this, but also solo grocery shopping, perhaps doing household chores to ensure they’re all completed as they need to be. Time is valuable, and when you calculate how much time is spent per year with all of these dead activities bundled together, you will often be surprised as to how much of your life is simple admin. This is good to an extent, if life was 100% meaningful and 100% useful all of the time, we would be exhausted.

However, there are methods you can take to make this period more useful to you and your goals. For example, you might decide to download a list of inspirational podcasts, or podcasts dealing with a hobby of yours. This can inform you of the latest news in your industry without you having to spend time elsewhere. If you’re struggling to read around your working subject, it could be that downloading audiobooks for the car can help you refresh your knowledge as you head into a full day of work.

If you take the train each and every morning, learning to meditate for twenty minutes while seated can often be an excellent method of coming to be present with oneself, thoroughly giving you that personable emotional intelligence you might need to apply to the day ahead. Filling dead space is not only achieved by these methods in question, so be sure to experiment with whatever helps you through and through.

Effective Programs

It’s not just the dead space in our lives that can impact us so profoundly. Sometimes, it can be extremely worthwhile to consider the actual programs you’re enrolled in. For example, if hoping to study at a higher level, it might be that you try to avoid the usual brick-and-mortar university lecture process unless desperately needing access to facilities in order to graduate and network well.

For heavily theory based degrees, such as those offered in an online masters program electrical engineering or otherwise, you may find that the resource delivery and ability for self-study is much more time-efficient than the standard fair of the lecture circuit. Many, many people are complaining more and more about the wasted time that these courses promote, and an overwhelming statistic of students often agree that a three year degree could have been done in two, or whatever reduced number is the most appropriate. This might not apply to every degree, but it can apply to some. With a year saved, or fundamental knowledge well taught and condensed into a certain time frame, you might find yourself much more opportunity to learn and broaden your horizons with other topics.

Don’t think that a program is simply perfect because it’s offered by a recognizable brand. This goes for anything, from animal handling qualifications to chef or trade school. Try to find the actual content offered in this learning process, as it can help you make the best decision, and value your time more appropriately.

Working Smarter, Not Harder

If you believed what every gung-ho Instagram entrepreneur said, you would think that your life was only redeemed if you woke up at 4.00am everyday and worked until 10pm before heading to sleep. This, of course, would be ridiculous. While there is a nobility to ‘never letting the sun catch you sleeping,’ sometimes working for an overly long period of time, or as hard as possible is actually less conducive to results than you might consider.

This can prevent you from optimizing, from learning how to systemize processes without losing out on their results. Working smarter might mean managing those under you effectively, or putting like tasks together, or simply trying to develop your competence in order to complete something in a shorter time frame. It might sound opposite to the definition of the term, but staying patient with the activities in your life can also help you save time. Why is this? Well, ‘measure twice, cut once,’ is often a phrase used to denote that if you take your time with something, the final action put towards it will be accurate, and help you avoid the necessity of repetition. It’s not hard to see how you might personally benefit from this, provided you look at the entirety of your life with this scope, and not only obvious considerations such as your work.

Valuing Your Time

Perhaps the best way to make use of your time is to value it. This should be considered step one, but since it’s so obvious we’ve relegated it to the end of this article. Know your worth, and the worth of your time. This can help you disconnect from the distractions we’re all used to.

With these times, you’re sure to plan your life in the most effective manner possible, saving yourself from endless drudgery.
