We have all been there - a "to do" list with nothing checked off and additional duties added by the hour. It may be easy to get stuck in a rut of checking the easy tasks off of your list. However, the real key to success in any workplace is personal time management.
Those who are able to successfully implement time management strategies are able to control their workloads proactively rather than spending each day reacting to continuous crises. Implementing successful time management strategies helps stress decline and personal productivity soar. Highly effective individuals are able to focus on their tasks with the greatest impact to them and their organizations.
While there are many ways to be successful with time management, CBS recommends activities such as being organized and delegating tasks effectively to help improve your daily impact and continue to excel in your position.
By guarding your time, you will find you get what you want done. Don't be at the mercy of others to plan your day for you - it is your day and you can spend it any way you would like. Make sure to utilize your day to the best of your ability and reward yourself for small accomplishments. Are you a coffee lover? Tell yourself you can have another cup of coffee after you finish an important task that has to be sent by 9:00 am. If you enjoy taking a day off for yourself, then get started on that challenging project and reward yourself when it is complete.
Time management is successful when you are committed to it. CBS provides training opportunities related to effective time management as well as various other topics and is available to assist you and your company with time management skills that fit your business needs.
