Have you ever said to yourself, "There is never enough time in the day?" or "I wish there was more of me to go around?" You are not alone. In fact, time management especially in the day in age we work is a difficult task. From Busy Executive, Entrepreneur, Manager, Mom, to College Student, time is a commodity we wish we had more access to. 

However, believe it or not, we have an abundance of time in our day. It is how we utilize our time that makes all the difference in the world. Here are a few quick tips that will help you stay on track, become more efficient, and get things done with time leftover:

 

APPS: OK, I was hesitant to make this number one, but there are some amazing time management app tools currently available. These apps will turn your iPhone or SmartPhone into the ultimate virtual assistant. Literally keeping you coordinated by the second if you so desire. Some amazingly intuitive apps. BE CAREFUL. Don't let technology control you. Meaning, don't spend two hours a day trying to program and update your app.

Top Five: Each night, at the end of the night, turn off the computer and smartphone and make a list of the top five. The top five things you MUST do tomorrow, as if there were no other tasks. You only have time for these five. When you wake up in the morning, the first thing you do before anything else is done is tend to those five and five alone. Now, for some of you, it may be imperative that you check email before beginning any task. Check email quickly then move to your top five list. If you felt these were the most important the night before, then nothing should supersede it in the morning. This way you will never say:

"My To-Do list is growing not shrinking!" Your right. Because you never go from start to finish on things. So write your top five, do your top five, and onto the next.

Time Management is NOT Multi-Tasking: Don't confuse effective time management with multi-tasking. In fact it has been proven in the Harvard School of Medicine that multi-tasking slows us down! Doing your kids homework while doing emails, will slow you down. Not to mention it is unfair to your child that just wants your attention. Doing a webinar and working on a presentation simultaneously, slows you down. Stop multi-tasking, start getting things done. Doing one thing, do the one thing, get it done, save the time, and you will have more of it.

Income Producing Activities: OK, now this will not apply to all of my readers, but it is for a lot of people. If you are a manager, sales associate, executive, or entrepreneur. You MUST focus on income producing activities. STOP doing busy work. Busy work takes all the time and energy and before you know it, the day is over, and no real revenue is made. You must say each day these 2 to 4 hours is about driving traffic, ads, marketing, advertising, and calling, anything that will make money. If not, why are you in business?

Internet. The internet from the moment we login (assuming we actually logged off) is a time killer. TMZ, ESPN, CNN, FOXNEWS, Yahoo, Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest are time killers. We end up reading articles, tweets, jokes, and the next thing you know an hour is gone just like that. Have fun later, focus now, and get things done.

I could literally spend the next 30,000 words going through different techniques on time management. However, if you do the above for 30 days, daily, weekends included you will win. You will have more time, less stress, better meals, more fun, and in the end, your production will increase 3 fold. Now, when is the perfect time to implement these measures? TODAY!
