Everyone wants to make the best uses of the resources available. Just like how we look to get best out of the utilization for our money. When we purchase any product/service we look for the best possible price and use cases. We also look for the quality and quantity of the product. For the money we spend do we get the best possible returns? Is our concern. Similarly, ‘time’ is also a very important and invaluable resource we spend. This is where we must ask ourselves the question: How can we make the best possible use of the time we have?
We may have a number of different tasks that we have to complete, some maybe more important than the other. This is where we have to learn to prioritize. We need to plan out our work as to how we can accomplish them. Depending on the task at hand and proper planning, it can be easier to say as to ‘how’ and ‘when’ we can accomplish it.
This process of planning can be done by:
- Breaking down the task into smaller goals.
- Writing down the steps to accomplish each task.
Each of the smaller goals must be achievable and measurable. Allocate enough time for each task to be accomplished. Depending of what the task is seek help if necessary. If it is a team goal try and delegate smaller tasks to the person best suited for the task. Stick to your schedule, focus on your task and there could be other priorities that seem important. Prioritize when you have different things to accomplish. Give priority to the most important task first. Then the lesser important task next and so on.
