Project 30 caters to small businesses and Fortune 500 companies, all of whom expect timely interactive marketing campaigns that deliver measurable profits. To ensure all of our clients and campaigns are given ample attention and time, our executives must master their time management skills. Here are a few tips we give them to ensure every single minute of the day is fully maximized:
- Plan Ahead: The most crucial part of the day is the time you spend creating your schedule. Take the first 30 minutes of your day arranging your priorities and creating a time plan. But most importantly, stick to it.
- Get Rid of Distractions: Whether it’s answering a non-urgent call or checking your social media accounts, they’re all distractions that take away from productivity. Even if it’s just a minute of talking or a quick status update, it can take away from your focus, resulting in taking more time than necessary to accomplish a task.
- Anticipate Interruptions: We can never predict when something urgent will come up, that’s why it’s important to always block a time for interruptions during the day. This way, if anything outside of your schedule needs your attention, you won’t be left behind.
- Schedule a Time to Answer Calls or Emails: Allowing yourself time to answer calls, texts or emails means that you can focus on a current task, which usually results in a faster turnaround time.
Time management is one of the invaluable skills we help our branding experts develop during our management training program. If you know how fully maximize your time, you’ll find yourself accomplishing your goals in no time at all!
