Successful People Tips For Getting More Things Done In Less Time
How to get more done daily!
Tip 1: They evaluate how their time is being used.
The best way to figure out how your day is being spent and where your time is going is to do a time log.
Don’t do anything different. Try to pick a “normal” work day and then go about your day like normal other than every 30 minutes jot down in a notebook what you did those past 30 minutes. Be honest with yourself. You will not be able to improve your time management if you are not honest with how you are currently spending your time.
This is important because by understanding how you spend your time you are able to figure out where you have opportunities to improve your time management.
Tip 2: They write daily to do lists.
This is truly so essential for getting more things done every day.
Daily to do lists help you get not only an idea of what you need to get done but are an amazing tool for helping you stay on track. And as most of us know, staying on track is one of the hardest elements to getting more done every day.

Tip 3: They focus on prioritization.
This is such a helpful tip for getting everything important done. Which also leads to generally getting more done in the day!
It will take time and effort to really learn the skills necessary to prioritize your days without really focusing on it but eventually it will start to become second nature.
Start practicing prioritization but numbering your daily to do lists from 1 down to the last item in order of importance and then stick to that prioritizing schedule. It will help you genuinely get the hang of prioritizing tasks.

However, the elements of your morning routine will definitely depend on each individual person and what you need. The universal factor is to focus on creating a daily morning routine that allows you to set your day up for success and proper time management.
A large part of creating a productive morning routine will involve getting up early enough so if you need help with getting up earlier than read – Learn To Get Up Early Every Day.

Tip 5: They know the dangers of multitasking.
The next tip in the journey of improving your time management is to learn to accomplish one task at a time.
Multitasking significantly decreases your productivity and actually makes it take longer to accomplish all the tasks compared to if you did one at a time and were able to truly focus on each individual task.
It also greatly increases the chances of making an error since you aren’t fully focused on any one task.
Tip 6: They actually use their planner.
Planners are a wonderful productivity and time management tool!
Take the time to either buy a weekly planner or to improve on the one you already have.
Create a system that you like for noting important events, deadlines, appointments, etc. That could be planner stickers or colorful pens. Just focus on creating a system for your weekly planner that you will stick with!
Tip 7: They utilize breaks.
Breaks are completely essential for being efficient and productive which is very important for better time management.
If you try to keep going and going without taking a mental and physical break you will burnout and that is not conducive to productive time management. So take this opportunity to learn how to correctly take breaks. This is including learning how many breaks to take, when to take them throughout the day, and how long they should be.
Tip 8: They make sure to automate tasks when possible.
Automating certain tasks can help you save so much time in your life.
Take this day to spend some time figuring out what aspects of your life you can automate or just generally use technology to help you save time. Things like paying bills can be easily automated and safe you a lot of time! Also consider signing up for grocery pick up services which can really help you regain a lot of time in your week.
