From Benjamin Franklin to Elon Musk.

Here are the 8 common strategies I've found

Which they use to manage their Time.

When we have a lot of priorities we feel like we are the only ones with no time.

But, every one of us has an equal amount of time.
It depends on the strategy of how we manage our time.

Breaking down some of the common strategies often used by

Some of the greatest minds:
1. Delegate Tasks

It is common for all of us to take more tasks than we are capable of completing.

This can often result in stress or burnout.
Delegation does not mean you are running away from your responsibilities

But are instead learning proper management of your tasks.
2. Prioritize Work

We all have a list of things to do in our in the morning.

It’s always better to Prioritize work based on your requirements.
Be honest, and make a list on an app or notebook of what should be done,

what’s important for you to be done first.
3. Set up Deadlines

When you start something it also has to be finished.

A lot of us find it easier to start anything but finishing is harder.
So setting up deadlines will allow us to avoid procrastination or unfinished task.
4. Overcome procrastination

Procrastination is one of the major things for our time loss.

It results in wasting essential time and energy.
Avoiding procrastination is difficult but not impossible.

Record your task with a timer even record your procrastination time.

So that you’d have peace of mind when and how much did you procrastinated.
5. Avoid Multitasking

Most of us feel that multitasking is an efficient way of getting things done,

but the truth is that we do better when we focus and concentrate on one thing.
Multitasking hampers productivity and should be avoided to improve time management skills.
6. Start Early

Most successful people have one thing in common

they start their day early as it gives them time to

• sit
• think and
• plan their day.
When we get up early, we are calm, creative, and clear-headed.

As the day progress, our energy levels start going down.
7. Breaks are important

Whenever we find ourselves feeling tired and stressed, take a break for 10 to 15 minutes.

Too much stress can take a toll on our bodies and affect our productivity.
I usually take a break of 20 minutes after 2 hours each,

which I find very useful.
8. Learn to say “NO”

Politely refuse to accept additional tasks if you think that you’re already overloaded with work.

Take a look at your to-do list before agreeing to take on extra work.
Many people worry that saying no will make them look selfish,

but it’s not.

• Delegate Tasks
• Prioritize Work
• Set up Deadlines
• Overcome procrastination
• Avoid Multitasking
• Start Early
• Breaks are important
• Learn to say “NO”
