Working for earning a livelihood is something that each one of us does today.
But what most of us are not able to achieve is the work-life balance. One should have a work-life balance in the form of free time where they can spend time with the family, friends, themselves or a hobby.
And hence people take all the necessary steps to earn those moments. While one can always bargain the time with an extra penny of work, we suggest you organize your work as such that you feel that you are working fewer days and yet finishing all the work.
1.) Plan your capability
Often we plan to work for about 5 days a week and still find ourselves struggling on Saturdays and Sundays.
One should plan their work and time with a correct calculation where they can determine if they should work 3 days a week, 4 days a week, or 5 days a week and stick to it.
The biggest hindrance to working is the emails, social media, and phone calls.
To manage your work better and complete it faster, you have to spend less time with the personal callings while working. Allocate time for email checking, messaging friends and phone calls and don’t break the rules.
3.) Categorize your work
Sorting your work in terms of urgency, small targets, big targets, reporting, etc helps in managing the work better and lets you work on schedule even if you go off track.
4.) Make task goals, not time goals
Making task goals ensures that you work towards one batch of work and finish it as soon as possible. It has been noticed that people who set task goals work effectively and finish the task way before the time required to do it.
5.) Allocate your free time with your choice
When you have managed to cut down a few hours or days from your work life, be sure to allocate this time to something that you really love doing.
When you make the most of the free time you appreciate your management and start managing your work even better.
While one can definitely take out some time from each day’s work schedule, it only makes sense to devote that time to doing something that they really like. This way they will feel that they have worked less and lived more!
