Time Mgmt Tips...

Just when i come to Singapore i realize how important time management is, went pass by a tweet about bullets points for time manangement. Sharing them to share with others ;)

When you take control of your time, you take control of your life!
  • Start your day with a plan of action (make your to-do list the night before) (I've already started it here.)
  • Maintain balance in your life (I do)
  • Get enough sleep (I do)
  • Be flexible (I need to work on this)
  • Don’t be a perfectionist ( You kidding!! I'm not )
  • Reward yourself (I do)
  • Don’t waste waiting time (use this time wisely) (I do waste time in waiting.. So need to work on it.)
  • If you can’t sleep, don’t waste time lying in bed, get up and do something (learned from Dr. Wayne Dyer) (I liked this one.)
  • Plan more (I do)
  • Don’t waste time regretting your failures, just look ahead and be excited about the future. (I do)
  • Trust your instincts and believe in yourself. (I do)
  • Before you start a task, ask yourself WHY are you doing it, if your answer is not convincing, do something else! (Need to work on it)
  • Allow yourself to relax and do nothing for BRIEF periods, and don’t feel guilty about it. (I'm pro in this.)
  • PRIORITIZE your to-do-list (I do)
  • Focus on one day at a time (I do)
  • Live for the moment – DO IT NOW! (I don't! Need to work on it.)
  • Itemize, categorize, prioritize, crystallize… but just do it. Take action!
  • Never miss a chance to admire beautiful clouds or a rainbow. (The only thing i admire most is Beautyyyyyy..)
Most Common Time Wasters:
  • Planning (lack of)
  • Priorities (lack of)
  • Telephone Interruptions
  • Disorganized/Cluttered Desk
  • Procrastination
  • Lack of Self Discipline
  • Ineffective Delegation
  • Crisis Management
  • Inability to say NO

Never forget god. This is all materialistic, but you have to give time to talk to your soul too. Body is temp, soul is what permanent (as per Hindu religion.
So give some time for god.
