Order To Ensure Better Time Management

Learning time management skills often requires the
setting of long, medium and short term goals. When
evaluating the number of goals to be completed,
planning when, exactly how you will meet your specific
goals is one of the most important steps in the

One example of a long term goal might be to build a
home of your own. Simply setting this goal is not
nearly enough. If you really hope to accomplish your
goal you must have a detailed plan in place to help
you achieve it.

Effective time management skills include setting
deadlines for when you will meet your entire goals, as
well as thinking through all of the small steps that
you will need to take along the way. This is the
planning process and it requires that you make
commitments to yourself, in order to meet your long
term goals.

If your goal is to build a house within the next two
years, then the next step is to detail all of things
you will need to do in order to accomplish that goal.

It is also important to set shorter deadlines for each
phase of this process. In this case some of the things
you might to need to accomplish in order to fulfill
your goal, and the deadlines you might apply could be
find a piece of land on which to build by December;
blueprints for the home complete by March; hire
contractors by June; purchase materials by July etc…
In this way you break down complicated, long term
goals into smaller, more manageable pieces.
