Following on from my recent blog around time management I thought I would share my top 5 tips that I have found the most useful.

We find ourselves living in world full of distractions, I say this as I sit at home working with my smart watch buzzing, my phone next to me, and the dog wanting attention!! So, any tips to help you be focused and make sure you can get the most out of your day is certainly needed within our busy lives.

  • Take 10 minutes at the end of each day to plan your diary for the following day
  • Colour code your diary so its to see what’s next
  • Break big tasks into smaller chunks and use a technique such as the pomodoro technique
  • Use do not disturb features on phones and emails as to not get distracted during core tasks
  • Give each task a time limit so you are focused on one task at a time
