I am going to be sharing with you Tips on Time Management from a series of people who work from home.
I will ask each of them to give me a tip to share with you on Time Management.
TIP 1: TIME MANAGEMENT
Debs Taylor-Hayhurst/ Business Coach
“Working together to make a difference”
“Before you start each day, write down a list of what you want to achieve that day; review how well you did at the end of each day. When you have mastered this, use your Friday afternoon to review your week and plan for next week bringing forward any undone ‘to do’s’ – however make sure your tasks follow the SMART rule! (Specific | Measurable | Achievable | Realistic | Timely)”

Make sure you maximise on the benefits of working from home by scheduling in some of these little gems into your daily time frame:
– 30 min excercise (e.g. walk the dog or do some in house yoga )
– read one chapter of your current fave book from the comfort of your armchair
– 10 min sun bathe in your garden
– 15 min meditation
And most of all, start using positive language when talking about your time management and your work. Use words that express abundance rather than lack like “I don’t have enough time for this … or I can’t fit it all in”…
Instead learn to say e.g. “My time schedule for this week is running at capacity.
