Time Management

The time it always feels cramped, can also cause stress. Therefore, time management becomes crucial. Some things you can do to manage time well:

  • Determine the end result and make your priorities
  • Create a list and prioritize works and tasks. Do the most important first
  • Create a plan before you do the work. One work is done during the one hour that had been planned to be more effective than you do the job for 3-4 hours that you do not plan in advance.
  • Do your duty in accordance with the time where you feel productive. For example, a person would be better to do the work in the morning than the afternoon. Limit the disturbance as well as the guests and the sound of the phone during your productive time.
  • Learn to delegate some of your tasks
  • Create a schedule time to relax and unwind.

Positive Thinking
Convince yourself to keep thinking positive. Always take a lesson from every incident is one way. Because of what someone thought would relate directly to the feeling or mood and in turn also affects the performance and productivity.

For example, there are two employees arrived at work and found the boss seems to look at them with anger. One man was quickly found guilty and said to himself, "I must have done one mistake yesterday!" The thought made him anxious and unable to concentrate fully on his work. Meanwhile, another man would say to himself, "I thinks the boss was having a bad mood this morning. Maybe there is something that is bothering him. Hopefully if I worked well today, I will be able to make him happy". Although located in the same situation, the two men have different perceptions, hence their response to a case is also different.

  • Ensuring the future: "I am confident that this project will fail"
  • Reading thoughts: "it seems my husband does not like the food I cook, just he hesitate to be candid"
  • Estimates are too high for the bad things: "I am sure, I will be a hotbed for this mistake"
  • Catastrophic: "I never could see anyone's face after this"
  • Excessive in general: "everyone will look down on me"
  • Saying a must: "I must be competent in doing all things"
  • Always be 'the perfect': "I have to do the job perfectly or I probably would never try"
