Earlier this week, someone asked me what my 3 best tips were for time management, so I thought I’d share them here.

My 3 best time management tips are:

  • Check your email 1 1/2 -2 hours AFTER you start your day.  It’s not a good thing to check your email first thing in the morning.  It eats up too much time, which is not a good way to start your day
  • Work according to your personal energy cycles. We all have a particular time during each day where our physical and mental energy are at their peak.  That’s the time when we need to focus on the things that take the most focus or creativity.  Find what works for you and work it
  • Plan, plan, plan! Discover your time management personality, choose an appropriate tool, set up your system around it, and set your time for weekly planning.  It will get you to the point of working on the things that are important but not urgent.
