How many times has this happened to you:  you get up with some ideas about what you want to do during the day, and then before you know it you’re getting into bed, realizing that everything you planned to get done never happened?  Our lives are so busy that it can be very difficult to manage all the tasks we want to complete during the day.  Take a look at these pointers to help you accomplish what you set out to do.

The Power of Routine

While “routine” can sometimes carry a negative connotation, it is actually a very effective tool in accomplishing important tasks.  If you find that everyday things are being shoved aside by distractions, make a routine for yourself and stick to it every day.  Many people who love to exercise make it a habit at a certain time every single day.  This way you get used to it and it becomes easier and more natural to accomplish.

Time and Place

Telling yourself you are going to do something is not nearly as powerful as saying both when and where you will be doing it.  Studies have shown that individuals who set aside a time and place every day to complete a task end up accomplishing it much more often than those who don’t.  So if you find yourself with important tasks to do during the day, tell yourself where and when you will do them in order to get them done.

Review the Day

Successfully managing your day will not happen after your first attempt, and it will never happen if you don’t review how you can improve.  No matter how well the day went, take time before you go to sleep to evaluate it and figure out what you can do better next time.  This way, even relatively unproductive days can help you focus your efforts.


Planning out your day is more of an art than a technique.  However, with practice and dedication, you can become a master of time management.  So start now!
