8 Secrets for Mastering Time Management

1. Declutter

Declutter your desk, your inbox, your task list, and your life.

2. Plan

Plan out your work day and stick to it (check off accomplished tasks as you go.)

3. Prioritize

Rank your tasks in terms of priority and align them with your job demands, your goals and MBOS.

4. Be effective

It’s not a race. Don’t try to be the most efficient; try to be the most effective.

5. Focus

Focus on the “vital few” rather than on the “vital many”.

6. Finish the job

Develop your “finishing instinct” – when you get to a task,

complete it no matter what.

7. Stop procrastinating

Most people tend to tackle easy tasks first and push out the difficult ones – don’t fall into this trap!

8. Stay organized

Once you get organized, stay organized.
