Time management is an art and is needed to stick to a schedule. But for productivity, I believe, just sticking around a fixed schedule doesn’t help, it requires more than that. It requires energy management.
Let me put it this way; Earlier, I used to have a time management plan for the entire day. I used to divide my whole time for every stuff I needed to do, but I found difficulty in completing tasks. At the end of the day, I wasn’t as productive as I wanted to be. Then I found a formula to crack it.
I decided to recognize my tasks according to the energy level it requires. I allotted them according to their energy consumption. Like, for me, the morning is the most active time and followed. That means I can do the task that consumes most of my energy like developing a website or developing a prototype in the morning and then for the rest of the day I can concentrate on other tasks that consume lesser energy like reading a book and stuff. Finally, some tasks like house chores that barely need any energy, I allotted them for the evening.
Believe me, I did it and the results I met were really fantastic. Nowadays, I stay most productive and obviously, happy!
Well, if you are one of them who is trying to get everything out of time management then I would suggest you try your energy management instead.
Let me know if you are already doing that then what is the difference you found or if you are the one thinking about still starting it, just go ahead.
