I’ve been trying to get better at managing my time because I can see how bad I am at it:
- I am busy all day, but nothing substantial gets done.
- I don’t prioritize, and so I complete minor tasks and I leave the most important thing for last.
- I keep putting off doing things I don’t like.
- I get distracted, so tasks take more time than they should.
The only thing I have gotten better at recently is actually deleting tasks that are neither important nor urgent.
Today I watched Ali Abdaal’s “10 Time Management Tips” and it gave me some ideas. Maybe you will find it inspiring too:
The main takeaway for me is that I should have a daily highlight — the most important task that needs to be done even if it’s the only thing that gets done. And I should time-block which I haven’t really done before, but I am going to give it a try.
