Do you often feel buried under your workload?

Does it seem like there are more and more days where there just isn’t enough time to cross everything off of your to-do list? It is overwhelming day in and day out to be overloaded. We are all busy, and in today’s fast-paced world there are a million and one distractions waiting to derail our trains of thought and delay our progress.

In 2016, the interruptions and distractions will only grow which is why you need to become an expert at how you use your time and stay focused now.

 

In 2016 our lives will move even faster and you must learn how to effectively manage your time or better yet – your priorities – to reduce stress and get through the year. Time management (priority management) is an important skill for anyone, whether you are the CEO of a corporation, an administrative assistant, or a stay-at-home-mom.

Knowing how to effectively plan your days and manage your time is essential for all of us. One of my favorite phrases from a Project Management course that I took is this: “Failing to Plan is Planning to Fail”. It’s very simple, and I know it sounds cheesy, but it’s the truth.

The good news about this tech savvy age we live in is that there are tons of tools out there to help you stay on track.

From scheduling and to-do list apps to spreadsheets, there is something out there that will work for you. The age of open source and free apps is at it’s height which means now is the time to take advantage of all the great resources out there just waiting for you to notice them.  So why not commit to making 2016 your year?

Let’s take this journey together.
