How to Organize Your Day to be More Efficient

Updated: October 09, 2010

This spiral requires us to keep improving our efficiency by working on our time management skills.
If you are to succeed in today's environment it requires that you constantly improve and produce better and better results.

Over the past years it has been very obvious that the bar is getting higher.
Companies are having to let employees go (because of the state of our economy) but they still expect the same output. This requires everyone in the organisation to work harder and produce more.

If you are going to be the best you have to stay ahead of this development, we can never become reactive, letting the circumstances force us to improve, instead you should be improving already and when the circumstances force you to take a new path, you are already in the habit of constantly improving.

By working on your time management skills you can become more efficient letting you produce more during the day and spend more time improving yourself and your knowledge of your industry.

Here are 4 easy steps to help improve your efficiency:

1. Write down all the activities you have planned for the day

2. Add the ones with precise times, for example meetings, to your calender

3. Prioritize the rest of the list by importance.
This means handling both the urgent matters and the long term important actions.
