When faced with packed schedules, endless emails, and towering in-boxes, it's easy to become overwhelmed and ineffective at work.

Time is your most precious resource
Managing your time successfully implies accomplishing what is most important for you. When you don’t accomplish what you truly want, you may feel confused, compromised, and frustrated. Many people try to use time management techniques that work for others, only to be disappointed. Often this is because they don’t also identify the goals most important to them and gear the techniques toward those goals. Effective time management must include techniques for good prioritizing.
A journey of a thousand miles begins with one step
- Break the project down in to manageable chunks.
- Make a check list.
- Stop and give yourself a treat when you finish a piece of the project.
- If you don't meet a goal, forgive yourself and get back on task.
Find an accountability partner that you have to check in with on a regular basis. If you know you will need to tell someone about your progress, you are more likely to accomplish the task.
