Time Management: First 30 Minutes

First 30 minutes should be spent on making a list! (Staff Photo)

As you may have heard, our boss has gifted us with time management classes to help us better achieve our goals.  My biggest hurdle yet is considered Time Management 101: making a to-do list.  Our instructor, Jeff, told us that we need to make a list of the 5 most important things that we want to accomplish for the day.

I made that list every day last week, but after a weekend get-away, I got out of the habit.  Yesterday, I didn’t have a list, but I did manage to get through the night without waking up and saying “Oh, shucks, I forgot to do (insert task here)”.

This morning I Googled “time management list tips“, and learned something new: the FIRST 30 minutes of your day should be spent on scheduling your day.

I made a joke about it last week, but it is true:  the first thing on my list should be “Make a List!”.  This way, NO TIME is wasted first thing in the morning.  Sometimes I get to 9am and realize that I have done nothing all day.  (When I was in the Army, I had done more before 9am than… well, you know the rest!)
