Planning routes without knowing the beginning place is impossible, like any other trip. The first thing you should do to understand how to manage your time better is to analyze your current situation.
There are two methods to do this. You need to ask yourself crucial questions: •
Where are you spending your time? •
What areas do you find most effective? •
What are the distractions you'd like to get rid of? •
While you're working towards your goals, how focused are you? •
Which are your most productive hours of the day?
Although these questions are helpful, they also depend on your memory and understanding of how you manage your time. These questions alone aren't enough to provide the complete picture.
It's the reason why it is recommended that you keep a basic tracker of time
for at least a week. Physical productivity timers have the advantage of not generating additional distraction, while you work. The time log, divided into 15-minute segments, should be completed as frequently throughout the day as you can and should document, in sufficient detail, the activities you accomplished during the time.
