376) Save Your Time; To-do-lists !

Most of us feel that they are running short of time, and would like to save some more time to either do some stuff or have some fun or even rest. During the coming couple of weeks I will be posting couple of articles (original+compiled) about saving your time that -hopefully- should help you saving sometime for yourself :)

You never know when you are going to have a great idea or brilliant insight. Carry a small notebook with you wherever you go so you can capture your thoughts. If you wait too long to write them down you could forget.

A common time management mistake is trying to use your memory to keep track of too many details leading to information overload. Using a to-do list to write things down is a great way to take control of your projects and tasks and keep yourself organized. This is on the business as well as personal levels.

Prioritizing your to-do list helps you focus and spend more of your time on the things that really matter to you. Rate your tasks into categories using the ABCD prioritization system:
- A are the urgent and important
- B are the non-urgent and important
- C are the urgent and non-important
- D are the non-urgent and non-important

I guess time management is something that needs a lot of practice. Personally speaking, I have always had problems managing my time. I have always had a long list of to do’s all urgent and mostly important. Some how, I trained myself to be multi-threaded just like the mighty windows :)
I started by solving my problem on the kitchen ground, organizing tasks to optimize the use of the available time. But yet I still have the gene of waiting till the last minute to act. Only exams were the exception. Awl lama ashoof war2et el emte7an yebtedy el effective time management :) 7ata kont bafakar a2leb el masters beta3ty le masters fi how to pass an exam we te7el kol 7aga abl el wa2t :) bas lel asaf I am stuck with eco-zeft :(
