How to Effectively Manage Your Time

Do you ever feel like you have a thousand things to do and no idea how on earth you’re going to complete it all? It’s so easy to start doing the irrelevant, simple stuff first because it’s easy to check off your to-do list but then you realize you haven’t gotten to the most pressing tasks. So how do you know which projects to focus on and which not to so that you can effectively manage your time?

Stephen Covey’s Time Management Matrix

Stephen Covey’s matrix is a great way to decide what to do with each of the items on your to-do list. Here’s the matrix summarized:

  • Urgent & Important: do it first
  • Non-Urgent & Important: schedule it out
  • Urgent & Not Important: delegate it
  • Not Urgent & Not Important: throw it out

Understand yourself so you know what to say no to

Say no to the little things that suck your time and don’t add to your energy. If a task or invitation is not in your best interest and doesn’t help you work towards your goals (personal or professional) SAY NO! To figure out how to understand yourself and what best serves you, read this blog post.

Optimize your energy

Make sure you are taking care of your body by eating right and exercising often. Frequently, when we are overwhelmed and feel like there aren’t enough hours in the day, the first things to go are eating right and exercising. People will instead go for the fast food or processed food because it’s quick and easy and they’ll opt to not workout to save an hour in the day. But I have the perfect solution for you so you don’t have to do any thinking. Sign up for BURN where I give you what to eat and an in-home workout for every day of the month so you can generate as much energy as possible!

In order to prioritize your tasks and get them done efficiently, it’s vital to have a good mindset and to not be overwhelmed. If you’re feeling overwhelmed, listen to my podcast episode about coping with overwhelm!
