Have you heard of a saying “time is money”? You can interpret this to mean that time is actually a very valuable currency. In fact, each day, another 24 hours is deposited into each of our “bank accounts.” We get a choice about how to spend these hours. We decide how much we spend right away, how much gets invested for our future, and how much we give away to pay our bills.
There are 5 reasons why it’s so important to manage your time better:
You are more in control
Don’t waste your time on tasks which don’t add any value, such as overextended meetings. You can make money only if you are not physically or mentally exhausted during your work. Planning and organising work may allow you to work less hours more efficiently. Take short breaks, meditate and re-energise in order to be sharper.
You are more efficient
Do you know anyone who look back on their lives wishing they could have worked longer hours? Know when you are most effective in your job, think smarter. Identifying the most important tasks stops you blindly reacting to what’s urgent. Concentrate and prioritise on tasks that have to be done, so you have free time later to do what makes you happy.
You are more fulfilled
Depending on the values you hold, it all starts with the choices you make. The understanding on what matters most will get you far. If you can plan your time and execute most important tasks efficiently, it’s time well spent. How you function every day, affects how you feel about yourself.
You have more drive
The act of finishing tasks often brings a level of satisfaction, especially when working with large projects and several team members. Consequently, you are eager to repeat the actions that resulted in success in the first place. Your capability to manage time has a positive effect on your energy throughout the day.
You are happier
Put more value on your time. Keep your weekends free or have one or two evenings a week where you have the chance to release your endorphins. It’s your life, and you will be far happier and less stressed throughout your work week if you find the time to enjoy it.
Overall, it all depends on the value you place on your time. How much does it worth to you? If you want to improve your peace of mind, try our free 30-day trial on 1Time Tracking. You can choose from any user base package with no credit card requirements. Try it today!
