THE PLAYBOOK: 7 Time Management Tips

1 – Create A TO DO LIST: create a to do list with both urgent and non-urgent items (tasks); update it throughout the day so that don’t forget anything; keep a copy on your BLACKBERRY or iPhone so that you can always keep it with you to update…

2 – Allocate Your Time: once you create your list, allocate a specific amount of time to complete each task, as well as a due date for completion…

3 – Set & Respect Your Deadlines: once your deadlines are set, work very hard to meet them; by respecting your deadlines, you make your life more efficient, and you avoid those frantic last minute rushes to complete your tasks…

5 – Meet Only When Needed: unnecessary meetings waste ALOT of time; if possible, cale down your meeting time only when needed; when planned carefully, sometimes three or four meetings can be compiled into one…

6 – STOP Procrastinating: it’s only natural to want to put off unpleasant tasks until later on-we all do it, the trick is to schedule the most difficult tasks during the day early when you have the most energy…

7 – REWARD Yourself: time management is as much about play as it is about work; please allow time in your schedule when you can sit down and FINALLY charge that damn cell phone; once your tasks are accomplished, reward yourself for a job well done…
