We are 15 days into the second half of 2020. I want to take this opportunity to share some of my top time management tips to make sure that your second half is better than your first half.
I know that the first half of 2020 was a doozy everyone! That was an understatement. We went from normalcy to pandemic to quarantine to phased reopening and in some cases back to quarantine. The first half of 2020 has thrown the entire world for a loop!
However, this is now the second half of 2020! Though we cannot the past, the present or the future, we can predict our performance everyone!
With that here are some of my top time management tips to make your second half your better half.
Take Inventory of the First-Half
How much did you accomplishment everyone? Write it down. It is essential to access what you accomplished the previous first half. You can even break it down into first quarter and second quarter.
Because your first quartet may be drastically different than your second quarter? I know mines are. First quarter I was out and about meeting people face to face without any limitations. The second quarter, I was in quarantine. The same for you so divide them by quarters and evaluate your accomplishments.
Find And Eliminate Your Time Wasters
Even in the middle of this pandemic there are time wasters sucking your day away like a vampire (Netflix and YouTube everyone?!). Find and eliminate all of them. This will exponentially increase your productivity for this second half of 2020 and beyond.
See What You Can Salvage
See what you can do. This is way more empowering than what you can’t do everyone. Now that you’re focused on what you can do, divide your goals by quarter and half.
Why divide by quarter and half?
It is break down things and build moment. I do not want you to get overwhelmed and then quit everyone. When you get overwhelmed you get paralysis of analysis and then quit.
This is NO TIME TO QUIT! Let’s salvage 2020 and keep it pushing!
Reestimate (Rebaseline) If Necessary
If you cannot realistically reestimate your goals and get them done, then reestimate your timeline. I mean who knew that the Rona was coming everyone? You have 6 more months to accomplish something
Keep Track of Your Second Half Progress
Look even if you have to dust yourself off and dump everything that you’ve planned during the first half everyone, still keep track of your second half progress.
Because some progress is better than no progress. Furthermore, you will be surprised as to how much motivation and satisfaction you will get from crossing off your goals.
If you know that you need to track your goals but don’t know how or where to get started, here’s my Goal Tracker to help you. It is the very same system that I use to keep track of my progress.
