How many times have you heard someone say that time is your most valuable resource? That's because it's true. Your time is invaluable. Treat it as such. To gain a better understanding of where your time goes, track how you spend it. You could use a daily planner with hourly slots to plan your tasks for each hour of the day.
"Another method for tracking your time is to create an accountability log," suggests Elizabeth Meyer, a business writer at Britstudent
and PhD Kingdom
. "It works similarly to a schedule, but instead of jotting down what you plan to do during that hour, you write what you accomplished." Accountability logs can be a useful tool for convincing yourself that your time matters and you're capable of accomplishing great things with it.
In addition, you can resort to paper daily planners if you're not into keeping a digital planner. Believe it or not, people still use paper daily planners in their day-to-day planning.
