When you start working to earn a living it is very important to maintain balance between your personal and professional life. Otherwise, not only will you not succeed in keeping up with your work but your personal life will also be intruded upon and become unsatisfactory.
– Plan your Day
If you can manage to list all your activities for the day, for work as well as home, you will be more at ease while going through them. There is less chance of you forgetting to attend a meeting or bringing the wine back home for dinner when guests are coming over. Do the planning a day in advance, not any earlier than that.
– Keep a Note
Use your cell phone or your computer or a simple notepad to keep a note of certain details. When you meet someone and exchange numbers or other contact details and one or both of you don't have business cards to give, then use these options to scribble it down.
– Use Post-its and Reminders
Don't restrict yourself from using these stationeries and try to rely on your memory all the time. It is not possible to remember every detail of one's day even if one wants to. The best is to stick the most important activities to be sorted through the day somewhere where you can easily spot them. The computer screen or the bed side table is a good idea.
– Spread it out Evenly
Don't squeeze all your activities into one day. That will not only overwhelm you and reduce your efficiency at work, but the chances of missing out on something will also rise. The trick is to keep a certain part of your day free so that you can fit something into it in case of emergency. Otherwise, you can simply relax in that time.
Every successful individual will agree that one of the biggest reasons for their success is being organized. Unless you maintain a schedule through your day you will always find yourself in the middle of chaos. Trying to make ends meet becomes annoying after a point. Bad time management results in procrastination and losing out on business.Follow me
