We're going to have 72 hours a day to use. In fact, the devil hidden in the details, some tips will help you to sneak away the time to catch back Oh!
Hey! What do you think success means to you? Success is making a lot of money? Success is to find the ideal of another partner? Success is a successful career? No matter what your definition of success is, there is an explanation that everyone agrees: that successful people have the ability to do more! How can it be more efficient? Sharing 10 of your unexpected tips will definitely make you more effective.
1. Know what you want to do and what you should do.
The motivation for doing things is often just because we want to do it, or "feel" it should be done, rather than taking into account the economic benefits of doing it and the impact on ourselves. (Be honest with yourself: do you want to be someone else's "need" or just meet your own "want"?) )
For example, you may want to make your resume look good and participate in volunteer service, or you can go to a community college teaches part-time because you like to be called a "visiting professor." But in fact, a lot of things that you do simply because you want to, will waste a lot of your time. You should think about what you can do to become more important and smarter.
Evaluating what really matters to you is what you should do.
2. Don't struggle for the extra 5% progress

"To do the best" is the motto of a lot of people, but you might want to reconsider that when your efforts and progress are disproportionate. Take a bike ride for example: I'm the best amateur rider, but it's nothing compared to the pros. In order to do my best, I have to spend more time to exercise physical fitness, practice to make progress, but the extent of progress is very limited. I had to spend twice times, three times times, or more on practice for such a small improvement, but at the same time I could do more important work or accompany my dear family. Which one would you choose?
So when you're doing a good job on something, but it's hard to be better, prioritize the rate of return on investment. Because sometimes, good is enough, especially if you need to pay a disproportionate amount of effort to achieve a better time. (Learn smarter calculations: does love have a return on investment?) )
3. Learn to say "no" in a timely manner
Look at it, are you a very easy person to promise someone? A lot of times we will because do not want to appear very impolite, or do not want to show too cold and afraid to refuse others, virtually received a lot of things beyond their ability to scope. You should learn to refuse in a timely manner: there is no reason to be too complicated, and sometimes it's easy to show that you don't have enough time.
Find a way to say no to yourself and practice saying no, so you won't take too much out of your power. You can also help yourself to learn how to filter: What kind of things need help. (Brave for yourself: say no to violence )
4. Back to basic: Think of Me-time's original intention
I play with my friends every weekend, but when you ask, "Why?" "I have no way to respond in real time. Then, I may start to associate: Exercise can help maintain health, but also can relieve the stress and stress of work, so I play basketball every weekend. Is there a possibility that I use the weekend to play just because I'm used to doing this?
Me-time is important, it is your personal time to learn to be alone with yourself, to do anything you want to do, to go wherever you want to go. Me-time's original intention is to enjoy his time, to find the inner happiness. Think about what you're doing right now, and there's nothing you can't imagine why you should do it? These things that are not motivated but continue to do are simple habits. Your me-time can be used better! (Exclusive to you:"selfish" women of all ages of Me time Good Times )
If you don't know how to sift through the me-time that you are used to, think about what you would do when you were on holiday. What you don't do on vacation, it's probably the me-time that should be reduced.
5. Set a strict timer for yourself
We will set a time limit for our to-do business and try to urge ourselves to do the work at hand in this way. But how many times we sneak up on the deadline and postpone the expected date to the illusion that work seems to have been done within the expected timeframe.
Come on, stop this bad habit! You should think about how much time the job is worth, or how long it will take you to do it, rather than having it postponed indefinitely.

You can start with this new attempt: set yourself up to spend 10 minutes a day in social media, not more than 10 minutes.
The first day you feel anxious and miserable, because 10 minutes is too late to get you to do everything you want! The next day, you'll intuitively skip some of the less important messages. On the third day, you'll start to rethink your priorities when using social media. And then on the fifth day, you'll find that 10 minutes is enough to get you through all the things you want to do. You've been spending too much time on social media before!
So start setting up a strict timer for yourself! Creativity comes from human needs, and I'm sure you'll find a way to solve it in time.
6. Establish good habits before bedtime
Before you go to bed, you can think of the first thing you should do the next day is the most important thing, because it will determine the other days of your other arrangements.
Get into the habit of preparing for the next day: Make a to-do list, review some of the necessary information, and keep yourself in full swing and high efficiency the following day.
7. Don't forget the good morning habits
After preparing for the night before, to make sure everything is going very well. Pretend to be an Olympic sprinter, and your good morning habits are the warm-up before the game. When you get up, don't hesitate, don't let yourself down, or go back to bed, freshen up, dress up, and then fill the dynamic, ready to start a vibrant day.
I know it's painful to leave a good blanket, but to put it another way: if a sprinter doesn't forget to warm up before the game, why should you stay in bed?

8. Professional Division of labor, suitable for people to do the right thing
The idea that all things can be done by themselves should be the same. But selectively handing over some of the work to others will save you more time.
How do you choose those jobs to be done by yourself, those that can be outsourced? Writing down two or three is the best job you've done and the highest rate of return on your investment, and that's what you should do yourself. As for the rest, you can consider delivering the work to someone else.
9. Take care of your bad habits
We all have bad habits, such as: The folder is always not properly organized, or open e-mail after the forgotten reply, or always forget to put things on the calendar. Things that should be done well but don't do well will consume more of your time when you need them.
Solve the problem immediately: Read e-mail immediately reply, have a new to-do item on the calendar, to fix those bad habits, will save you a lot of time and unnecessary anxiety. (Dear Deep Breath: Ten good ways to keep yourself from worrying )
10. Do not use multitasking
We can do one thing to achieve a lot of results, but we must not be multitasking. Because of the distraction, your efficiency will also decrease.
Try! If you think something is particularly important, you should concentrate and avoid all distractions. When you start concentrating on doing one thing and turning off all distractions, I promise you will never think of multitasking again.
