At instaMek, we love helping busy car owners save time. Saving time is a concern for almost everyone, however how many people can actually master it?
We hope this guide will give you some guidance and help you spend more time on what’s important to you.
Plan your day ahead.
Sounds obvious, but not everyone does this. Having a vague idea of what you need to do is not the same as having a concrete list. It also feels good when you check things off your list, one by one!
Try spending about 10 minutes everyday to plan for the day ahead. You can do this either the night before or the morning itself! This gives you a game plan for the day and helps you focus on the tasks at hand.
Achieve more by focusing on your priorities.
All the workaholics, raise your hands! How many of you try to fit too many things into your schedule? You just need to manage your time better, you tell yourself.
But how many times have you rescheduled that pesky task list on insert-your-app-of-choice? Your number one complaint when friends ask “how are you” is “I’m so busy!”
Finding that balance between being ambitious yet realistic is key. Prioritize, prioritize, prioritize! Start with trying to do less to achieve more.
Limit your work hours.
This may sound counter-intuitive, but when we start the day with the mindset that we have the entire day to accomplish our to-do list, we run the risk of being unproductive in the first half of the day and scrambling to complete your tasks towards the end of the day.
Are you the type to bring work home? You may think that doing that helps you achieve more, but you may be setting yourself up for failure this way.
Allocate certain times of the day to work, so you will give yourself added pressure to finish your work within those times. This gives you a better work-life balance as well, which helps your mind and body rest, recuperate and start the next day afresh.
Outsource tasks and make use of time-saving services.
