3 Top Time Management Tips for VAs and Freelancers
You should always be a rational manager of time in the sense that you should be aware of the consequences after wasting it. Therefore it is better not to waste any and utilize it in the best possible manner. Firstly you need to possess an action-oriented, do-it-now attitude that will also save your time along with finishing your work diligently and efficiently. When you are done with the hard tasks of the day, you will have time on your hand to utilize on bigger jobs that will also help you grow in your career. This can help alleviate your stress and can motivate your self-esteem to a high degree that will help you gain self-respect and confidence.
Importance of a Proper Routine
Start off with a proper routine and follow it for the next thirty days, at least. Behavioral studies indicate that once you do something for thirty days at a stretch it becomes a habit. In this way you can discipline yourself and manage your time in such a manner that you can get more out of a day than you could hardly ever have imagined. Keep track of the achievements you make and the long term as well as the short term goals you look forward to. This can help you to motivate yourself and you will remain enthusiastic about your work all the time.
Achieve Your Goals
It is time that you shed your shyness and dream big even though, initially, it might seem a little unrealistic with respect to the position you are in right now. Describe your aspirations in pen and paper in more details. For example, if you dream to buy a car, then you should jot down the name of the car, its features, cost, etc. This way you will know which direction to follow and what are the things you should prioritize in your life – family, personal life, career or personal finance.
Time is Money
All the successful people in this world sell their time which is very precious. Thus you should start respecting as soon as possible. Fast food workers, freelance artists and massage therapists, who are not the most successful people in the world, charges an hourly rate because as I mentioned earlier, time is valued. Make a chart of your daily activities and divide time for everything so that nothing gets neglected and you get to perform each task efficiently. Your time is money and money is important to be rise in any career.
Therefore, you should start with daily routine from today onwards for at least thirty days and then you will automatically becomes disciplined and rise the ladder of success.
