Orangeville, ON (James Doan) Business Time Management simply means business planning with definite milestones of achievement of overall success. Thus, both at the planning stage, as well as the performance stage, do not lose sight of the rare and limited resource of time and the importance of doing everything as per schedule within the given time.
In business, there is the pressure of multi-tasking activities. The first thing to remember is to be extremely methodical in handling these jobs or activities. The official planner on the table should be the principal guide for the particular day. While the previous day should be spent on specifying the activities and the probable time for that, in the day in question start following these activities in a planned manner, as far as possible.
If possible, prioritize your activities, which means the most important ones are attended and disposed of early, leaving some room for relaxed-thinking, which often is at the bottom of creative thoughts. Keep less important tasks for the time of the day when you are at your lowest in terms of productivity. At the planning stage, some prefer deliberate overplanning of activities with the expectation of achieving more, a technique which works at times.
In an age of faster communication, do not downplay the importance of managing emails, telephone calls and such methodically, with less concentration on ineffective exchanges of communication and more focus on the right things, both in written and verbal communication.
Be as tech-savvy as possible since communication and execution are being taken over by high-tech gadgets. That means faster performance of jobs at hand. You will have more time for planning and accomplishing additional tasks.
Last but not least, Time Management is largely dependent on efficient and effective networking with the right kind of people, leading to substantial savings of time.
