5 Tips To Streamline Your Day and Practical Activities
When trying to manage your day to day life it can seem like things are impossible to keep up with. In order to help you undertake the crazy whirlwind of a job it is to keep up with a busy life these days we have prepared a few tips to help you stay on top of it all. If you take a few of these to heart then you may save a little bit of time and be able to spend it with your family and friends exactly how you want.
1. Make lists of important to-do items
It is easy to let things slip through the cracks which is why we recommend making lists. We are all masters and experts of keeping mental tabs on this and that, but even those with the best memory can forget. Lists will help you prioritize exactly what needs to get done and not forget it. Especially with the advent of smartphones we are very well connected to technology and can have that digital list pulled up in no time.
2. Set Auto-Reminders on your phone and computer
Whether you are using Outlook, Google Mail, or just your phone’s built in system it is very easy to set up a reminder for important events. Don’t let yourself forget to show up to that meeting or finish a task by setting up a reminder the day before or earlier that morning. It can pop up a few times, even email you a reminder and show up on your calender.
3. Organize your apps on your phone for high priority first
Don’t let all of your games and entertainment apps get in the way of what is important. Put the most important stuff first. We recommend having your mail apps, communication, banking, business, and productivity apps right on the first few screens of your smartphone if you are using one like iPhone or Android. For example on our homepage you can find our Internet browser, calendar, world clock, Google drive, banking apps, mapping, and other important business apps so we always have fast access to what we need. When it is time for entertainment you can grab that game in a folder you set aside a few screens away so you aren’t digging for important apps during the business day.
4. Revisit your day at the end of the day to see what you accomplished
Look back at the day you have each day to see how much you really accomplished. Sure you were busy but everybody is. If you can look back at your day each day you will realize some of your inefficiencies and push yourself more the next day to really get through a lot more work.
5. Block out your time
Too often we get distracted by multi-tasking from this to that and we forget what really needs to get done and when. Give yourself certain amounts of time to handle certain tasks and stay on point. If things have to shift you can but stick to the schedule!
