What is Time Management?

Everyone want to be successful in life, but only those become successful who understand and follow the concept of time management. Why is that so?

It’s because time is the most important asset of our life and have a great role in achieving success. Those who doesn’t value time now will have to pay in future.

Everyone around us make excuses and ask for some more time. But there are very few who know how they can manage their time, which results in a better work life balance. So, let us discuss what is time management exactly?

Time management is a skill which helps you make a strategy about the time which you give to different tasks by prioritizing and eliminating them. Time management helps you give specific time duration for certain task which are most important.

Proper time management leads to a healthier lifestyle, as it will increase your productivity which will positively affect your professional reputation and decrease your stress level. All these will lead to a better work life balance.

So, there are plenty of benifits of time management which we are going to discuss in the following section.

What are the Importance of time management?

There are many reasons why time management is important, and we are going to discuss some of them so that you have a clear idea what are the benifits of time management.

1. Do More In Less Time

Time management will allow you to complete most of your important tasks in comparatively less amount of time.

How and why?

According to 80/20 principle, there are 20 percent of tasks which will lead to 80 percent of your success. So time management will let you know what tasks are important and how much time should you give to them.

How? We will discuss it in later sections.

2. Helps you achieve what you want.

Many people either don’t know what they want to achieve in their life or don’t know how they can achieve their goals?

When you learn about managing your time, you learn how to set priority goals and make to do list. Both of these will provide you a clear picture how you can achieve what you want.

Hence, if you manage your time wisely than you can be successful too, because time only values those who value time itself.

3. Better Decision Making.

What do we know to take a good decision?

For taking a good decision what we need is time and information.

Most of the people have the information but don’t have the time to think upon it because they are always racing with deadlines.

So with proper time management you complete your tasks before deadlines and have plenty of free time. Because of which you can think and process the info which you have in your kind and take good decisions.

Many people regret about some of the decision which they took in past, which they want to change. Sorry but they can’t. So take your decisions wisely so that you don’t have to regret for it in future.

4. Makes your success greater

We have already discussed that by managing your time you can achieve your goals and become successful in no time.

But don’t you think that if you have achieved your goals than you can achieve more.

Why not? If you can than you must.

Ok, I have a question for you : What does Success means? Give answers in comment box.

5. Reduces Stress

This one is my favourite.

Everyone have a plenty of stress in the present era.

What causes Stress? When we are unable to achieve our goals and our professional reputation is having a sand bath than the only emotion which we are left with is stress.

Stress can lead to severe diseases and mental disturbances, but managing time reduces stress.

How?

I don’t think I need to explain. Anyway, managing your time will help you achieve you goals increase your professional reputation and helps you with a better place work life balance. All this indirectly cuts the stress from its roots because there is no reason left for us for being in stress.

6. Improves Self discipline

When you will try to implement time management, there will be times when your colleagues or friend will ask you to join them for a coffee break and something like that.

But you can’t. Why?

Because you have to stick to your plan and you have to first complete the task and then enjoy the coffee break.

This will definitely improve your self discipline. And self discipline is the key to success.

Don’t you remember Might Guy’s self rule from Naruto.

Note – Your plan for managing your time must be flexible.

7. Boost Your Confidence

When you will be able to complete you priority tasks before deadlines and have a popular professional reputation, you don’t have to worry about confidence because it will be skyhigh.

I mean achieving your goals will lead to a boost in your confidence.

But, don’t be over confident.

8. Increase your Productivity

Managing your time properly increases your productivity many times.

What is required for being productive, nothing much you should understand your priority tasks and have a clear idea what are your goals and when you are going to work upon them.

By time management you will be able to achieve all of these.

So, in conclusion your productivity and working efficiency will increase drastically.

9. Waste Less Time

When you start learning how to manage your time in the later section you will know about a to do list in which you will learn to create a to do list containing all the tasks which you need to complete.

When you will have one of your own to do list than you don’t have to waste time thinking what you are going to do next etc.

Since you will know what you have to do than you will be in action mode not in thinking mode and which will save you a lot of time.

Due to which the number of opportunities you get will be increased exponentially because everyone wants that their work is done by a specialist and which you will be.

11. Superior life quality

A life with free time for family and financial freedom is the best in my opinion.

Most of us struggle financially and to overcome that we do hardwork and due to which we spend very less time with our families and friends.

But when you learn to manage your time you will be having a life having both free time for your beloved ones and financial freedom.

Finally, you will get some free time in this busy World.

13. Time for something new

As we discussed above that you will have plenty of free time which you can spend in learning something new.

We all know that a person dies when he stops learning.

So never stop leaning something new. It can be any creative skill or something like that but always try to learn something new.

14. Eliminate Procrastination

What’s procrastination?

When someone procrastinate, in simple terms it means that they waste their time on doing something less important work and when they realise they get covered with stress clouds.

You have to set meaningful goals because your goals can’t be to small that you achieve them and than stop there. Also they can’t be like I’ll be world’s richest person in seven days etc.

So you must learn to set meaningful goals that can lead you to success.

6. Keep your goals to yourself

You can control your tongue but can’t control tongue of others.

So it’s better you hold your tongue back because we all know people say something.

You can share your goals with someone you collaborate.

it’s best to keep your goals to yourself.

7.Motivate yourself

When everything will be ready you will be working hard to adapt the concept of time management, there will be times when you will think of quitting.

But Never quit.

Motivate yourself, look up to those whom you admire, but never quit.

8. Execute

This is also a very important step. Almost million of people have idea of becoming millionaire but only some of them become because they execute.

So make plans, think, but don’t do over thinking.

Execute on your plans as soon as possible.

9. Avoid Multi tasking

Many people think multitasking is good but even computers can’t multitask.

So avoid multitasking. And focus all your attention in one task and try to finish that as soon as possible and than do any other task.

It only decreases your productivity, so try avoiding it.

10. Find your focus hours

It depends on your environment wether you are productive in early morning or in late night.

So, find your focus hours and try to complete your most important tasks in your focus hours only.

11. Be patient and give your hundred percent

For being able to manage time you have to be patient and give your hundred percent.
