Time Management

The concept of time management isn’t new. But, with our lifestyles spinning faster than ever between long work hours, balancing our social lives, caring for our family, and still finding time for self-care, time management seems more important than ever before.

The idea behind time management is simple. You can plan and control how you spend the hours in a day to complete your goals. Someone with excellent time management skills can juggle between the domains of life in a timely fashion. Beyond allocating time to complete specific tasks, time management is also about prioritizing. Making sure not-so-important jobs are outsourced or reconsidered is also part of using time management strategies to your benefit.

Taking Control of Your Time

It seems easy, but controlling one’s time can be quite a challenge. Most people already go through life thinking there aren’t enough hours in the day to get by. Between work, long commutes, distractions, and procrastination keeping us away from finishing our tasks, it can be easy to see why time is the most valuable commodity of the 21st century.

Poor time management can be blamed on many things, including our innate ability to procrastinate, attention problems, or difficulties with self-control. Not to mention, we’re bombarded with media messages and distractions such as our phones, social media, and even our peers.

While people look at poor time management as a harmless personality trait, it can actually increase your stress levels, hurt your professional career, and even impact your relationships.

Developing time management skills varies from person to person. Some people might approach it from a work perspective, focusing on finding ways to become more productive at work. Others will look at it through a personal lens, focusing on how to find more time for themselves or their family and friends. Regardless of your angle, know that time management skills start by working on acknowledging the bad habits that lead us to procrastinate in the first place.

At GR8NESS, we’ll share time management strategies that speak to every personality out there. Whether you prefer a neat and clean workspace to help you stay focused, or you thrive in a creative mess, we’re here to help you find what works for you.

From to-do list templates and time management podcasts, to how to find the right time management strategies for your personality, consider us your go-to resource for advice and guidance.

Finding the Balance

In this digital era, our lives experience more blurred lines than ever before. With our phones glued to our hands almost all day long, we have an outlet from reality at our fingertips. Suddenly, the lines between work and life are nonexistent, and finding a way to separate them becomes more challenging.

Time management is our vessel for finding the balance we’re all seeking in life. While we start looking at our time for productivity purposes, we must understand its value in self-care. Claiming control of our time permits us to schedule time for ourselves, set time aside for our family and friends, and carve out time for the things we enjoy doing the most.

While your time management styles and strategies will change over time, you can count on us to help you navigate what that means for you every step of the way. As always, we won’t tell you what’s right or wrong. Our mission is to provide you with non-biased tips and let you decide what serves you from our words. They’re yours to take or leave behind. Whenever you need them, they’ll be right here waiting for you.
