6 Common Time Management Mistakes

----MayJune 2015----

HOME

If you want to be highly-productive you will want to avoid these mistakes.

Item 1 Failure to Keep an up to date To-Do List!

Did you ever get a feeling that you've forgotten something? Something really important! If so, you probably do not use a To-Do List to keep on top of things or, perhaps you might not be using it effectively! To be effective, the list must be prioratized in terms of what is most important.Then you work on the most important item on the list first until it is complete.

Item 2 Not Setting Personal Goals.

Do you know where you'd like to be in six months, next year, or even 10 years from now? If not, it is time to set some personal goals! Personal goal setting is essential to managing your time because goals give you a destination and vision to work toward.

Item 3 Not Prioritizing.

When you're facing a flood of seemingly-urgent tasks it is sometimes difficult to establish a priority. However, it is essential to learn how to prioritize tasks effectively if you want to manage your time better. One tool that will help you prioritize effectively is the Urgent/Important Matrix.

Item 4 Failing to Manage Distractions.

Some of us can lose hours every day because of distractions. What could you do if you had that time back? It might be email, people problems at work or a phone call from a customer that sets the time aside preventing us from achieving flow, that we have when we're 100 percent engaged in a task.

Item 5 Simple Procrastination.

It starts when you put off tasks that should have your total focus right now. When you procrastinate, you feel guilty that you haven't started; you come to dread doing the task; and, eventually, everything catches up with you when you fail to complete the work on time.

Item 6 Taking on too Much.

This is a real easy trap because for some of us it is hard to say 'no'. Moreover, taking on too much is a poor use of your time, and it can get you a reputation for producing rushed work. Some of us need to learn the subtle art of saying 'yes' to the person, but 'no' to the task.
