Do you ever feel like there isn’t enough hours in the day to get things done? Do you run around hoping to find a few spare minutes to stop and sit down? If there is a deficiency of time, you have to ask yourself what you can do to change that. If you don’t, you’ll continue to waste valuable time on unnecessary tasks.
Here’s how to find out what is happening to the hours of your day:
- Start an inventory of the time you spend doing things daily. What tasks and obligations are deemed a necessity? Which ones could you eliminate from your schedule completely? How would it feel to have more time to do things for yourself and your family? Are there items in your home requiring too much upkeep for you to manage them efficiently? Once you have an idea of where all of your time is going, you can come up with a plan to rid yourself of clutter and distractions.
- Find the sources of your distractions and eliminate them. Turn off computers and TVs, put your phone on silent, and make it a point to OHIO or Only Handle Items Once. By doing so, you’re able to free up extra time in your day and you won’t feel like you’ve accomplished nothing. You’ll be able to get more things done in less time so you have some downtime to relax and spend time with your family. That’s one of the benefits of inventorying your time and cutting out tasks that no longer serve you.
By taking inventory of the hours you spend doing different activities each day, you’re reminded of the amount of time you actually have to do other things. If cleaning and organizing takes up more hours than anything else, it’s time for you to start adopting systems that save you time and effort.
