The changes I’m making with my time for greater productivity!

Heyyyy y’all! I recently did a post on being more efficient, and here is where I get to pinpoint and be specific on which ones I’m going to focus on putting into practice first!

Don’t we all have those days where we know we haven’t been as productive as we know we could have? (#worstdayever!!) It goes without saying that we all want to be superhumans in managing time, but HOW?

The trick is to remember that everything you do takes up a niche of the time during the day that you’re going to want back, so you better think ahead and wonder, “at the end of the day, am I going to be glad I did this?” I’m almost ALWAYS glad when I do chores or school all day because at least I did something productive that makes a dent in my remaining school!!

I’ve found that reallocating time not only allows me to get more things done in a day, but it also allows me to do everything BETTER than I used to be able to. Once I stopped my extra reading and self-reflection, I noticed a MAJOR spike in my productivity and effectiveness on the job. Yet, there STILL remains changes to be made that will greatly reduce time-wasting.

The first thing I’m going to change is to write down or bookmark topics or articles I would like to study throughout the week. At a point in the week where I have free time I’ll come back to the list and look up the things that I still think are important. This saves tons of time because it keeps me organized, and it keeps me from surfing the net when I should be doing my school. 😬

The second re-allocation I plan on trying out is to reduce the time I spend in pleasure reading and use that time to write essays. Although I love to learn, take notes, and store knowledge, writing essays on certain subjects can take me a long time. I need to plan a time for me to sit down and write those essays I’ve been putting off for weeks!

As I re-enter the official school year, I feel better and nearly ready to start again! My third and final reallocation is to spend less time drawing and reading books and articles, and spending more time in school, math, essay-writing, and reading the Bible.

Stay awesome, y’all!

        Hey Kiran! Thank you for waiting for my reply.
        I checked out your blog and you have some great stuff on your personal development journey, especially as it relates to finding your purpose and goals. Your articles are informative and interesting, and challenge the reader to take steps in the right direction. I really was astonished to read about the “2-minute rule” you summarized, and I would love to try that out to see if it works for me! 😊 I gave you a few ratings too. 👍
        It is easy to see that you really care about personal development. It’s also a bonus that you are able to link back to your other posts. You are a great writer … good for you! Know your audience and what they want, and ask yourself what you are writing to do: inspire them, challenge them, or tell them about yourself. (That being said, don’t merely write for your audience. Write about things you care about, and if your writing is high-quality, don’t worry if the word-count goes over or under your norm.)
        I’ll continue checking out your blog. 😊 Keep writing!
