Free time is not wasted time

As long as you interpret time management as a tool to connect your desired outcomes and the time available to you, free time may turn out to be much, much more productive than what you were doing before.

Think about what you want from your life. Your true goal is more profound than buying a nice car. What objective brings you a sense of joy, fun, and freedom? It could be providing for your f...

Visualize the outcome

You're not failing to reach your goals because you are incapable - you're failing because you're trying to focus on too many things at the same time.

Instead of focusing on what you need to do to reach your goal, visualize the outcome. If you think of the outcome instead of the steps to get there, you're more likely to pursue your goal. Then the steps will become a couple of manageable tasks.

Utilize N.E.T. time

N.E.T. stands for “No Extra Time,” and it’s based on the concept that you always have time during your day that you can fill with learning.

An important step in achieving any goal is to continue learning at every opportunity. Feed your mind during downtime. It could mean listening to a podcast while commuting.

Eliminate half-work at all costs

Examples of half-work:

  • You start writing a report but stop randomly to check your phone for no reason or to open up Facebook or Twitter.
  • You try out a new workout routine. Two days later, you read about another “new” fitness program and try a little bit of that. You make little progress in either program and so you start searching for something better.
  • Your mind wanders to your email inbox while you're on the phone with someone.
Do the most important thing first

Decisions and choices that you make throughout the day tend to drain your willpower. You're less likely to make a good decision at the end of the day than you are at the beginning.

If you do the most important thing first, then you’ll never have a day when you didn’t get something important done.

The Pomodoro Method

Rather than trying to work flat-out, break down your day into a series of work-sprints with a short rest period after each session.

Set a timer for 25 min and focus exclusively on your work for that time, take a 5 min break, and repeat.

Some people find that taking a 5 min break destroys their flow. But it does help to break long complex tasks into a series on manageable sprints.

The 2-minute rule

The 2-minute rule is a strategy for quickly assessing and taking action on small tasks so they don’t take up too much mental energy.

Ask yourself if a task is going to take you 2 minutes or less. If so, just do it.
