In this fast-paced world, we’re all tempted to make the most of the time we get in a day, but ironically we don’t have the time to get it done. The goal of being more efficient with your time is admirable and requires a lot of planning, discipline to reach the end of the tunnel. Based on the Pareto principle or the 80/20 rule:

“Roughly 80% of the effects come from 20% of the causes.”

In terms of time management, this rule implies that only 20 percent of your tasks/activities will bring you 80 percent of the results in a specific business goal. This means that only 20 percent is important to what you do. So, take a moment to think of how much time you have spent on the 80 percent and how much you would achieve if you focus on the factor that really matters.

Now, this begs the question – What can we do to make the most of your time? Is there a way to get more work done in less time? Well, guess what? There are many.

Here in this post, we’ve put together 11 tips for better time management that you may find useful. These simple tips will provide you a better understanding of what you have been doing wrong in the first place and how you can achieve your goals by working less.
