Managing time is a challenge for most people. However, every successful leader has mastered this art and constantly improvises. Here are a few things that I personally follow and have proved to be very effective. The same principles could be applied for your marketing needs.
The principle behind time management is a simple concept which believes in the fact that:
- You own your time
- Invest in your time
- Carefully manage your investment which in turn is a reflection of your values and priorities.
At the start of the month, you sit and get yourself ready for a few things.
- 3 Things to do in the current month (Monthly)
- 3 Things to do in the current week (Weekly)
- 3 Things to do today (Daily)
The list actually holds you to work through your priorities and gets the tasks structured and organized. Follow the priority of tasks based on the urgency and importance of the task.
Following GTD has its benefits to management of your time and tasks. We at Intentwise use Trello and many other tools to get our tasks and time organized. I personally used to use iprocrastinate a while ago but moved to use Trello or Jira to manage my time and tasks.
