Time management is a skill we can all get better at 💪
Here are some strategies that can help.
DON'T WASTE TIME TRYING TO REMEMBER.
Free tools like Google Task help make quick to-do lists, sending a reminder to your phone and connected Gmail account.
Don't waste time remembering what you forgot. Just write it down or type it out.
Multitasking is not putting 100% into the things you do. It's dividing your attention between those things. 60% here. 40% there.
Switching from one task to another can end in mediocre results. Focus on the most important thing first and move to the next.

KEEP A CLEAN SPACE
A clear environment creates a clear head.
Whether it's cleaning up 10 minutes before you go to bed each night or taking an hour on Sunday, keep your work and personal areas clean.
PLAN FOR SOME “ME” TIME
The life of a self-starter tends to mimic those who push themselves to the brink of physical and mental exhaustion.
Take some time to let your mind wander. You'll be more refreshed and imaginative once you get back into your work.
