Time and I are really good friends for the most of my life. I was organized and always making schedules, to– do list, time blocking. Also, I have a weird obsession with planers, notebooks, and stickers.
Once a week (Friday usually) I write tasks for the next week. Day-to-day planning happens the night before. My to-do list is short, between three and five projects and I apply Pareto principle or 80/20 rule. It states that 80% of the results come from 20 percent of the effort. I tried quadrant urgency– important, but it never works for me. I will try another technique called batching. In this method, you batch same or similar projects and do it all in one go.
What is your favorite method for time managing skills?
