Finding the time to do everything that needs to be done is often a huge challenge.  For those looking for some help with time management, here's some great tips from Grant Schneider:

Original content by Grant Schneider

Do you have more work each day than you have time in the day? If that is the case time may be managing you rather than the other way around. My Westchester County NY business owners tell me that one of their biggest challenges is having enough time. We all have 24 hours a day. No one has more time. It may appear that way because of the way they make time work for them. Unfortunately, many of us feel overwhelmed and that causes them to see their life spinning out of control.  

Having a system in place will not alone solve the problem because time management is really not a time management issue. No, you first need to know your purpose. So here are some tips on surviving being overwhelmed.

1. Know Your Purpose and Focus like a Laser.

Know your vision, your goals, and your plans because these help you set priorities. Each day, identify the tasks you must accomplish and prioritize them. Also, set aside time to invest in your future. If you have yet to write out your life priorities, then take time to do this. It could be the most important hour that you spend in your life. Stay on course each day and do not allow yourself to get distracted.

2. Stay on Course by saying No.

Be fiercely protective of your time. Make sure a new commitment will help you achieve your plan or don’t do it. Rather than ask yourself, "What can I do?" ask, "What can I not do?" Avoid low value tasks, new projects, and distractions. Then tell people about your decisions. Huge amounts of effort are wasted by people trying to complete tasks that someone else decided to ignore.

3. Schedule your Down Time.

Even if you ride an accelerating treadmill, you can step off once in a while. Leave work at 5:00 p.m. on Friday. Take Saturday or Sunday off. Give yourself a two-minute break to close your eyes, rub your neck, or meditate. Set a date with family members for a meal or an activity. You may want to put this date on your calendar as if it were an important business appointment because it is.

4. Don’t Over Do It.

When you’re tired, your efficiency falters. Thus, eat healthy foods, get enough sleep, avoid toxic habits, and exercise (use the stairs, do crunches or push-ups in your office, take a five-minute yoga break). If possible, schedule exercise as if it were a business appointment.

5. Be Efficient.

Spend time only with people who add value to your life. Buy only from companies that provide adequate support. Hold effective meetings. Decline invitations to meetings without an agenda as I guarantee these will accomplish nothing. Avoid conflicts; they always cost time to repair. Keep your cool; anger always costs you more than what it achieves. Take a moment to plan before starting a task.


Erase Bad HabitsAbove all set goals for your work and your life. A good work life balance and a time management strategy will keep you on track and avoid becoming overwhelmed. Why not start the new year right by following these steps.  Read a similar post of our web site titled HOW TO AVOID RUNNING OUT OF TIME.
