Time management is all about making choices – choices as to how you manage your time. Sometimes though it’s easy to get bogged down in all the complexity of life. That’s the time to take stock and really put your time management skills to good use, and start by simplifying your life. Here’s how.

Be yourself.

Don’t let health problems slow you down – get then sorted when they arise. Drink water when you’re thirsty. Eat only when you’re hungry, and then enjoy it! Plan what you will eat and only buy what is necessary. Exercise every day

Manage your time – write things down. And prioritise.

Communicate what you need to communicate – don’t try to read other people’s minds, and don’t expect them to read yours. Treat everyone with respect and patience – not everyone is as good as you! Apologize if you upset someone – it costs you nothing.

Remember that a life without fun is a life not worth living. Plan for pleasure!

Spend a little time organising your finances. Set a budget and live within in it. Sleep on big purchases. Automate paying of bills so you don’t have to each month. Have just one credit card and use it wisely, even better, pay only with cash.

Ask if you don’t know. Ask the dumb question too, as you won’t be the only one thinking it!

Nurture those relationships which really matter to you. Tell your loved ones that you love them, as if it is the last time you will see them. Be honest with others, and yourself.

Sleep well and for long enough – a tired mind is rarely creative. Get up a little earlier than needed and enjoy the solitude, knowing you won’t be late for where you are going!

Sleep on big decisions

Don’t let problems fester – sort them out, even if it means admitting you are wrong. Recognise that nothing is ever black and white. And you are never as right as you think you are.

Prioritise your time and attention

Let go of negative emotions – jealousy, envy, might have beens, anger. Focus on the positives which surround you instead. Don’t be afraid to make mistakes – learn from them and move on. If someone is rude – it’s not you, they are having a bad day.

Don’t buy what you don’t need, and give away stuff that you don’t use.

Save a little time in the long run by learning a time saving trick you can use over and over again. Create routines and stick to them – autopilot is good.

If it will only take two-minutes, do it now.

Remember, you don’t have to be available all the time – switch off the mobile, and computer and put the answer phone on. Enjoy the peace.

Follow your own path in life. If you hate doing something, stop! Don’t try to please everyone, just do what is right for you. If you can’t change it, then let it go.

Practice good time management techniques – plan the big stuff first, then fit the smaller stuff around it. Do like jobs with like. Take the opportunity to do a job when it arises.

Take small steps towards your big goals and enjoy the journey. Hard work and luck go hand in hand – there is no such thing as a free lunch.

Smile often and particularly at strangers – you never know where it might lead. Meet new people – they will always teach you something. Learn something new

Manage your time well – really focus on the task in hand, and make sure you are focusing on the stuff that’s important to you

Organize your living space and working space. Make it pleasant. Clean up after yourself – don’t leave it until later. Maintain what you are reliant on.

Remember that time changes everything- both good and bad. Savour the good, and know that the bad can only get better. Accept this, and enjoy the journey.
