Quick Answers...Time Management
How can I accomplish more things on my to-do list each day?
Look back - can you honestly say you accomplished everything you'd planned for today? This is the perfect time to slow down and take a look at how you use your time. To work smarter, not harder, try the SMART approach:
S stands for Stay
Focused on what really counts.
M means Make It
Positive. A positive attitude can create
more energy, especially when you share it with others.
A stands for Attention
to Details. Little things can change the ordinary
into the extraordinary.
R is to remind you to
Reward Yourself when you complete a job.
T is to Think Team.
Your greatest achievements will involve input and
support of others.
In order to stay focused, find more time to do the things you want, and to reduce stress, use the SMART approach.
