Let’s dive into the world of time management and discover the keys to unlocking a more efficient and fulfilling day.

1. Not planning your meals.

It takes time choosing what to eat & ensuring you have the right ingredients in the house.

2. Watching TV out of habit.

Do you watch TV because you can’t think of anything else to do, are bored or lose track of time?

3. Social media.

Mindless scrolling can soon add up during the day.

4. Not having a visual To Do List. Don’t rely on your memory!

5. Not planning in advance. Avoid problems and don’t forget appointments.

6. Procrastinating.

Don’t put things off for another day. Get them done today and feel much better for ticking them off your list at last!

7. Not being organised.

Stop running around like a headless chicken. Plan, prepare and give yourself some wiggle room for emergencies.

8. Overloading. Your calendar and your To Do list. You won’t get it all done anyway.

9. Being tempted by distractions. Try to complete one task at a time and not get side-tracked.

10. Not blocking out chunks of time & underestimating how long something will take.

11. Checking emails when you can’t action them meaning you have to read them twice instead of just once.

12. Relationships that don’t add value. Only invest your time in friendships that are reciprocal and supportive to you both.

13. Too much multi-tasking so you don’t do any of it properly.

14. Not being intentional & asking yourself why you’re doing something.

15. Too much clutter needing too much of your time to look after it.

16. Not batching errands and work so you have to make multiple trips or switch between different tasks, lose your place and your focus.

17. Not keeping an ongoing shopping list so you forget what you need, waste time trying to remember or have to go back to the shops again!

18. Not doing an online weekly shop to save time on multiple trips to the shops.

19. Losing things by not having organised systems in place to help you find things quickly.

20. Prioritising the wrong things because you have no clear purpose or goals.
