Prioritizing your tasks is a popular way to manage time. You can achieve more when you dedicate your time to the right things while shrinking your time for “unproductive” activities. Suppose a person decides to prioritize their two professional and two personal goals for the day while mindlessly thinking about how much time they waste scrolling social media. In that case, they can achieve more in less time. The key is to plan and be mindful of your daily activities, which waste your time.

While deciding your goals for the day, week, or month, it is also good practice to write your goals in a journal in a “To-do list.” It may seem a very futile exercise, but at the end of the day, seeing your accomplished goals, no matter how small they may be, gives you a sense of achievement and motivates you to look forward to the next day. It does sound cliche, but once put into practice, this practice seems equal to having a personal secretary..

By focusing on being productive every day, one should not forget to be a human, to give oneself time to relax and unwind every day at the same time. One of the goals of time management is to be more human, where you have spare time to enjoy life and its pleasures.
