3 Time Management Techniques

Why is time management important to productivity?

Time management is the process of organizing and planning how to divide your time between tasks. The result should be working smarter, not harder. I know that is easier said than done being a pro procrastinator, BUT the only way to grow is to make yourself uncomfortable.

While in college I realized that being a pro-procrastinator was not going to get me anywhere; so I decided to research ways to be more productive. I did everything from locking myself in my room for hours to using to dividing my tasks up in time blocks. I found that there is no right or wrong way to manage time. whatever technique or combination of techniques works for you go for it!

Today I wanted to provide you with 3 time management techniques that you can apply to your daily routine today!!

2 Minute Rule

This rule created by author James Clear states if you can complete a task within 120 seconds, you should tackle it now instead of later. Showing up for these tasks changes your mindset , you can do it, you just need to simplify the task into 2 minutes. The key is building the habit of completion one step at a time.

Apply to this time management technique to your life today: Choose a habit , Commit to following the rule, Track your progress

Pareto Principle

AKA the 80/20 rule , created by Italian economist, Vilfredo Pareto “Pareto used the principle to reveal an uneven but predictable distribution of wealth in society—80% of the wealth and income was produced and possessed by 20% of the population.”

How does this apply to time management?

This principle helps you focus your efforts on meaningful tasks that will create 80% of results. The goal is to help you pay attention to how you are actually spending your time.

Pomodoro Technique

A time management method based on 25-minute stretches of focused work broken by five-minute breaks.Longer breaks, typically 15 to 30 minutes, are taken after four consecutive work intervals. This technique helps you resist all of those self-interruptions and re-train your brains to focus.
