Time Management Tips and Tricks to Get You Ahead

Do the Tough Things First

Research has shown that some times are better than others when it comes to doing cognitive work. Plan difficult tasks for the morning so you can get them out of the way and be prepared for the rest of your day. Alertness has been shown to decrease after meals, and sleepiness peaks around 2 PM. Getting the tough tasks first is a great workaround.

Schedule Everything

Organization is the key to success, and every entrepreneur knows that. However, most people only focus on scheduling important meetings. Schedule everything to create and follow a comprehensive routine, and you’re sure to see a rise in efficiency.

Make Time for Breaks

Entrepreneurs are always on a tight schedule, but taking breaks is as important as working hard. Your brain will get exhausted and take a break anyway – increase efficiency while still taking care of yourself by using the Pomodoro Method. This method motivates you with 5-minute breaks after every 25 minutes of work. After every 3 breaks, you get to take a longer break (15-30 minutes) and then start the cycle again. This keeps you refreshed and prevents slumps.

There’s an App for That

These days, there’s an app for everything – make sure to take full advantage of this. From Trello to Meetingbird, you can use a multitude of apps to keep you organized and accountable.

You can also take advantage of other resources, such as the Stay Hungry Club. As a female entrepreneur, it’s important to have a support system and learn from others’ experiences and knowledge. Join the club or contact me here directly for career coaching, career advice, and more!
