I’m self aware enough to know that from time to time I come off as a corporate snob or maybe even a robot, especially in regards to managing my time. But I think there is a real benefit to managing your time correctly, or at least better than not paying attention to it at all. The fact is, the one thing we will never have more of tomorrow than we do today is, time. So here are 3 ways to save a little bit of time throughout your day to make doing the more important things throughout life just a bit more enjoyable.
I’m a strong believer in developing really strong and daily habits. Not only can you focus on good habits like eating a good diet or working out, but habits like brushing your teeth or cleaning the house have a direct impact on your time because habits are one of the best ways you can save time throughout your day. Think about all the things that you do throughout your day that are almost automatic. The development of habits is hardwired to save us time throughout our days, our minds have more important things to do than to focus on the left and right motions of our toothbrush (Or circular motions if you’re a teeth freak), by developing these habits into moments throughout our life that require minimal attention we can speed them up and instead focus our efforts elsewhere. Start building some of your task into habits and you’ll see them naturally become faster and therefore save you time!
This is probably one of my favorite time saving tips and it’s something that I’m actively working towards as more and more of my technology becomes smarter and smarter. Think about all of the things that you can automate now that the majority of our task exist in the digital landscape, whether we’re talking about automating E-Mail, file Organization or even the time that your power outlets deliver power to your devices. The options are limitless at this point in time and we’re only going to see more and more solutions come online, (literally) over the next several years. Try to automate the less important task that you have to deal with on a daily basis and you’ll see that there is a lot of potential available when it comes to saving time throughout your day.
