Time - is money
So we do need to spend it wisely (Spend it) just like we would spend money.
These are some of the tips that have worked for me:
Clear my desk every evening
Make a list of jobs I need to get done the next day (Order of Priority)
Finish each task one at a time - Sales in the morning - the calls when everyone is fresh
Transfer the jobs not done on the one day to the next day.
FOR all of this I keep a large black hardcover book - Keeping my diary for appointments/meetings/ reminders etc
This all sound so simple - but it works.
Seeing your goals being achieved:
In this way we can also keep track of what we have achieved in life
We do so much and sometimes we forget how much we actually have achieved, especially if its something small in the bigger scheme of things. (Which it often is) then when we long for motivation - we can page back in our book and see just how far we have come and how much we have achieved in a week, month or year.
When I do sales training - I always recommend - the black book - bought at any local shopping store.
Keep a record of your client, a history of conversations with them etc etc.
Hope this has been a helpful insight into managing your time and goals.
