So I’ve recently not had the time to write a blog every week, like I said I would, but this one’s going to be about time management and maintaining ahead of your schedule.
The first time I heard these words was at Bootcamp training with The Apprentice Academy. I brought my knowledge of time management to DPG and was very impressed at how I used it at the beginning of my apprenticeship; recently, I’ve noticed that this skill has slowly started to fade away.
I still find myself making weekly ‘To Do’ lists but find it hard to dedicate my whole attention to them. I know I can handle it, but I need to find a great way of managing to complete my tasks without thinking “Oh God, it’s five o’clock and I’ve not even done this!” – I need to adapt to a routine!
At the academy, they taught me how to manage time by making a daily schedule; writing down my daily tasks, how long they would approximately take and marking the most important ones so I knew which tasks I would need to complete first.
I think I should use this more often at work to help me manage my time but just making the schedule itself would be time consuming and would probably take up half of my day already! As I’m still an apprentice newbie, I’m still trying to adapt to the routine of setting myself tasks and being dedicated to them so I need your help.
If you have any advice or any tactics that could help me manage my tasks a bit better, don’t hesitate to share.
Stay tuned time management heroes…
