How to apply time management and planning

  • Set your goals

Time management requires planning how you can benefit from your time. Planning requires the presence of specific goals. Without goals, there is no difference in how you spend your time.  Most people do not think much of targets as they spend a lot of time in the response and reaction to pressure from people and other things.

    • Setting goals is to think of good use of your time
      • Start writing your goals
      • Make sure that these goals are accurate and realistic
      • Put a time schedule for your goals
      • Think of the results, not only in activities
      • Put priorities in the end sense of what are the most important and least important goals.


  • Define your time habits 

It is surprising that most people really do not know how much time they spend in many types of activities and often time spent automatically. So, you can write down your time for a week or two and try to answer the following questions: *How you waste your time?* What is the importance and value of each activity?* Why do you spend your time the way you do?* How you can spend time in a better way?


  • Plan for your time

Managing time with more efficiency needs changing in some of your time habits; things are not happening automatically. So, you should have a plan for spending your time daily, weekly, monthly and annually. You also should have a plan for your entire life.


  • Evaluate your progress  

Are the events carried out according to the plan? Are the wasted time reduced? Are you accomplishing your goals? Are your goals are still the right goals? You should take another look at the plans to make sure they are still appropriate. Be sure that your goals and plans are making progress.


  • Make managing time a daily habit 

At the end of your day, take another look at the achievements of the day, what happened in the right way? What not? Why? Write your goals for the next day, and put a plan for your activities. Look for ways to improve your time management skills.
