Use Your Time Wisely

Last Update: January 20, 2018

Ask the Right Questions

You will stimulate thoughts on how to improve the way you are using your time.

Ask yourself -

  • What is the best use of my time right now?
  • What is the future impact of this activity?
  • Am I able to perform this task on my own?
  • Do I need to ask for help?
  • What else could I be doing better?
  • What’s working well right now?
  • What’s not working well right now? How can I change it?

The more you use this technique, you’ll amaze yourself on how quickly the answer will come to you and you’ll know what to try next.

Pomodoro Technique

  • Switch off all distracting tools and devices or anything that distracts you easily
  • Set your alarm or timer for 25 minutes.
  • Cultivate a mental set before starting. Quite simply, you tell yourself literally what you will do next. Example - “In the next 25 minutes, I'm going to finish and proof-read this 2 page document and then post it on my website.”
  • Start the timer and get into the work flow state
  • Take a 5-minute rest between each 25 minute work interval and repeat the process several times.

In the past the unscheduled had no place... so i leave time every day for the unexpected... and it fills in quite well... no stress

Good one. We can add another question to the list above -
"Am I creating space for serendipity?"

TV is a time waster and encourages you to sit around doing nothing. Keep your brain and body active at a cruising pace.

This is great advice. I got up early this morning to start writing and my page is still blank. It's 2:55 PM. I'm getting ready to go on vacation to Florida, but I do NOT want that to be a distraction, I've told myself that I'm going to get up early each morning and dedicate at least 2-3 hours of content before I start my day. I absolutely have to. Thank you for posting this.
