HOW TO MANAGE YOUR WORKING DAY

Having a good level of time management will not only improve your productivity, but will dramatically reduce the stress you put yourself under.

You need to start by addressing that it is not ‘time’ you need to manage, but ‘yourself’. Each day comes with the same amount of hours; it’s what you choose to do in those hours that determines your success.

Feeling overwhelmed can reflect every task that you set yourself to do. Taking on too many tasks or leaving things to the last minute creates stress, and when stressed people tend to be abrupt with clients, impatient and easily distracted.

Nine News Finance believes that by following a few simple rules, you can better manage yourself in the time you have.

Prioritise

Determine what tasks need doing straight away and which tasks can wait. Divide tasks into manageable piles.

Set boundaries

You’re not expected to be on call 7 days a week, 24 hours a day, so clearly communicate the hours you are available.

Delegate

Working for yourself doesn’t mean you have to do everything. It’s perfectly acceptable to outsource some work to someone who may be better equipped. By freeing up some time, you can focus your attention on more important tasks and furthering the business.
