5 Strategies for Managing your Time
By Elisabeth Garbeil
One of the biggest challenges for most people
is time management. This seems to be espe-
cially true for business owners and profession-
als, but it applies to everyone. Most of us have
multiple roles and responsibilities that we have
to balance, and they often conflict. Over years
of working with professionals and teams, I've
found these five strategies to be a great start-
ing place for getting a handle on managing
your time and accomplishing your goals.

2. BE VERY CLEAR ABOUT WHAT YOUR PRIORI-
TIES AND VALUES ARE, AND MAKE SURE
YOU KEEP THEM IN FRONT OF YOU WHEN
YOU DECIDE WHAT YOU WORK ON. Make
sure your schedule or calendar reflects your
priorities. Only keep one calendar for every-
3. PLAN EACH DAY IN ADVANCE AND WRITE IT
DOWN — PREFERABLY ON YOUR
SCHEDULE. You can do this the night before
or first thing in the morning.
4. KEEP BOUNDARIES AND PRACTICE SAYING
"NO." If family time is important to you, don't
work during that time. Your work will actually
improve if you keep to your boundaries and
people will respect you more. Create a list of
conditions to test whether you say yes. If it
doesn't meet your conditions, say "no." It will
get easier with practice.
5. TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF AND KEEP
HEALTHY HABITS. Your ability to get things
done depends a great deal on how much
you can do. The healthier you are, the more
you will be able to do. So get a good night's
sleep, eat healthy and exercise.
