I am the master of time management! Each moment spent has a defined purpose. I place my priorities toward the top of my to-do list and ensure that these responsibilities get completed.
My priorities change according to the environment I find myself in.
Time is of the essence in my workplace; I develop tunnel vision when it comes to checking tasks off of my to-do list.
When I am in the office, I close the door to all distractions. Texting friends, reading the news, and checking Facebook all take a backseat to the work that quickly piles up on my desk.
At times, focusing on my workload may be challenging. However, I always conquer distractions because I know that my family’s livelihood is dependent on my performance.
When I am home, the itinerary is far more relaxed, but things still get done.
I am aware that there are only so many hours in the day. For this reason, the kids have a to-do list. They must tidy up their bedrooms, load the dishwasher, and complete their homework before they can play.
I ensure that the house looks reasonably clean and dinner is ready before I allow myself to unwind and enjoy some relaxing family time.
But sometimes, like on a particularly stressful day, I am perfectly fine with letting the mess sit and ordering pizza for dinner. Some days, sparing my sanity takes precedence to all tasks on my to-do list!
Today, I focus on streamlining my performance and optimizing my time for success!
1. Do I manage my time efficiently?
2. What can I do to get more done in less time?
3. Can I delegate tasks that do not require my immediate attention?
