Do you ever get to the end of a day and wonder “what have I actually accomplished today?” Do you feel like you’ve been plugging away all day but somehow your to-do list hasn’t got any smaller?
If so, you may find it comforting that you’re not alone. Manager’s of all levels of seniority collectively face an ever-shifting list of priorities and demands – having to deal with short, unexpected deadlines happens on a daily basis, meaning other important work is left to pile up. However, since we all get the same 24 hours, why is it that some people achieve so much more with their time than others? What is their secret? The answer lies with effective time management.
Good time management starts with identifying where your time goes and making productive (yet realistic) tweaks. After all, as a manager, you need to set the example and demonstrate to your team that juggling multiple tasks can be done successfully.
Our new infographic on time management includes handy reminders to keep on your desk that will assist in keeping your time in check. You can view it here.
