Control Your Time

Here is a list of tips that may help you master time and stress through the day:

  1. Make a list of all the things you need to get done ­ in order of their priority.
  2. Make sure to commit to paper those goals you wish to achieve then follow that up with the steps you will take to attain them.
  3. Always determine a start and end time for special duties or projects.
  4. Learn to defer unimportant duties when the day is filled with more pressing ones.
  5. Learn to say "No" when you are at the limit of the workload you can reasonably handle.
  6. Once you pick up a paper or a file that requires action, act on it, file it or throw it out.
  7. Make big projects more manageable by only doing parts of them at a time.
  8. When you lose interest in a project you've been working on intently, switch to another one for a while.
  9. Make a point of taking a break to refresh yourself as fatigue may make you mistake-prone, causing more work later, or exposing you to more serious consequences.
  10. Life is too short to be constantly stressed. When you're worried about something, ask yourself how important it really is in the scheme of life.

It is most important to learn to take time for yourself when stressed or to avoid stress. Good health cannot be had for any price; your children only grow up once and your other loved ones could be taken from you at any time
