Time management is something that we all know is crucial to a successful day, week, month and year, yet many of us fail to prioritize it in our day-to-day life.

I sometimes question how it's possible to get everything I need to accomplish with only 24 hours in a day when I am spending 7-8 of those hours sleeping. 

As a result, we tend to enjoy multi-tasking, feeling as if this will produce a more efficient way to work, but I actually read a fascinating stat this morning which was that only 2% of people are actually able to properly multitask. 

Now maybe you are thinking to yourself, I am part of the 2%, but are you really able to devote your full attention to two things at one time and produce a quality result? Most of the time, no.

Instead of attempting to multitask where we are really jeopardizing the quality of our work, it is time to start focusing and prioritizing which tasks are important and create a plan to achieve them.

How many times do you have a project to work on and start thinking about the end result, and what it is going to look like when it is finished? I for one am super guilty about doing this.  I love to look right ahead to the finish line. But, this is actually detrimental to our use of time. We need to create an actionable daily plan that sets small goals that we can achieve that get us to the finished product.

I heard a great analogy regarding this. When a basketball team enters a tournament, they are not thinking about that final championship game. All they are focused on is the game they need to play right now to help them advance to the next round.

If we are able to map out and plan daily goals for ourselves that work towards achieving a larger goal, we will become much more efficient with our time and will be producing top-quality results in doing so.

Hope you have a great Wednesday, , and I look forward to chatting tomorrow!
