Tip of the Day: Managing Your Time

tip of the day managing your time

More than often, it can be tiresome working at the computer all day. When you look at the list of tasks which need to be completed, it may even be a bit intimidating.

While it’s always important to stay on top of your work, it’s also essential you manage your time wisely. That way, even if there are dozens of tasks which need to be accomplished, you aren’t trying to put all of your eggs in one basket.

Here are some computer productivity tips for managing your time better.

Plan Ahead of Time

An effective strategy for managing your time, is planning ahead. That way, you know what needs to be accomplished before it’s even done.

For example, let’s say it’s the end of the week, and you know it’s going to get pretty busy by Monday. Create a list of all the tasks that need to be accomplished during that week, and more importantly, make note of what you’re going to accomplish each day. If you had thirty computer tasks to complete that week, for example, and you focused on six per day, you would be finished by Friday.

Aside from planning ahead, you should also take breaks in between, so you don’t burn yourself out.

Eliminating The Shorter Tasks

Besides planning ahead of time, another way to remain productive on the computer, is by eliminating the shorter tasks first, or even the ones that could be completed another day.

When trying to stay productive, one problem some people have is that they’re under the impression that they have a lot of work to do, when there’s actually quite a bit of work that could be considered “fluff”, so to speak.

By dividing the simpler tasks between the more time-consuming ones, it helps you to get a clearer idea of what needs to be focused on, and the tasks which are ultimately important.
