I heard someone say one time, in a conversation about time management, that everybody has the same 24 hours in a day so you can’t say the reason someone else can do something you haven’t is because of time. I mean Beyonce didn’t become “Beyonce” because she was trying to kill time. So here are few tips from Beyonce herself to make more time for you business. Ok, maybe she didn’t say it, but I bet she wouldn’t argue!
First, give up 1 hour of unintentional pass times. Do you ever find yourself mindlessly scrolling through Instagram? What about Facebook? I’m going to rat myself out here for a second. One time I had to laugh (and scoff) at myself because I realized that I was ACTIVELY scrolling through Facebook both on my phone AND on my computer because I was seeing different content on both feeds. Friends, thats the moment when you have to drop everything and WALK AWAY!
Secondly, stop watching Netflix. Ok, maybe not all together, but if you’re like me you will find yourself elbow deep in a bag of chips while you’re on your 37th episode of Friends if you’re not careful. Set a 30 minute to one hour timer on your phone and when it goes off, turn off the show!
Third, PLAN your tasks. I, like most people these days, get extremely ADD.
I will hop back and forth between a million different things. Doing everything and getting nothing done. Something I like to do, as nerdy as it sounds, is create a spreadsheet with my schedule. Yup! If you plan something and set it in stone then that friend who wants you to help them move or your Aunt Debbie who likes to chat about what happened on the Real Housewives this week for an hour and a half can’t interrupt you. “Sorry Debbie, it’s not in the schedule for today.”
Creating these little changes in your day is going to significantly change the amount of time you waste. I promise!
