Set a Timer

If your day is like mine then you may feel like there are not enough hours in the day to do all that you want to do. One of the most effective time management tips that I have implemented is to set a timer. By setting a timer I am more disciplined and strategic in what I accomplish. Set a timer whenever you go online to assist you in keeping focused rather than getting distracted and wasting time.

We have so many technology tools at our fingertips but sometimes let events take over and manage our lives rather than ourselves managing our events. Set a timer for each activity throughout the day and you will see your profitability increase.

You can always add to the time after the timer goes off if you need it. You always have choices that are yours to make. Time management is just a bell away!
