Time management

Updated: Jul 26, 2022

Time is a matter of preference

Time management and how it can impact your productivity at work.

As important as having time, is knowing how to deal with the time you have.

Shall we learn a little about management and exercise practices that can help us during the process?

With the rush of everyday life, the challenge of having time in the face of daily obligations has allied itself with a new ally: time management. Whether in the corporate environment or at home, knowing how to manage the time we have available is essential, not only so that we can handle everything we need, but also so that we have more freedom to measure decisions and make them more assertive. That's because, as you can imagine, a disorganized and chaotic work routine can lead us to impulsive decisions, without proper consideration of the pros and cons that will come later.

As a result, we often end up receiving even more demands, which consumes more time and, from there, a very dangerous snowball begins - both for the professional and personal aspects.

To avoid such chaos, it is essential that we know how to manage the time we have available in a responsible and organized way, so that our obligations are carried out in a lighter, easier and more fluid way.

It's not always easy, of course; With each passing day, it seems that more and more demands arise, each one demanding more attention than the last. But with small attitudes and a little attention, anything is possible. Check out some guidelines that, throughout my time as a manager, have made a huge difference in everyday life:

1nd Procrastination has long-term consequences: that's right! Much more than just that one-off task you left for later, procrastination can affect your entire workflow for longer than you'd like;

2nd The lack of organization slows you down: not keeping an organized routine makes you late for appointments, meetings, deliveries and, consequently, even affects your personal life. Exercising the organization is essential for achieving better results;

3nd Know how to say "no": refusing to do something that is not to your liking, is not your obligation or offers any kind of risk to your organization of time, is not a sign of selfishness. Knowing when to say "no" to disorganized demands or failures is essential for making the most of your time;

4nd The more control you have over your time, the better your productivity: when you establish an organized routine, taking into account your demands and needs, respecting your rhythm and way of working, you automatically increase your productivity, both in quantity, as in quality. This can make a difference in your professional growth and, at the same time, guarantee more quality of life for your moments outside the company.

Care with time management is usually neglected or suffocated by the high amount of demand that surprises us every day, however, knowing how to deal with your own time is essential. Having a better quality of life in the corporate environment can start with you. Try it.
