From time to time there are moments when we require much more than 24 hours to fulfil all our tasks to do. In the majority of situations we find time to accomplish just urgent tasks, and everyday we hear complaints that there is no time to meet friends, or to visit relatives, or even to dedicate a couple of hours to ourselves. Does that sound familiar to you? Conceive that you can slow down the time. It's possible if you know three simple suggestions listed below. 1. Do not put off your duties. Procrastination isn't only postponing all the tasks, sometimes it's just failure to prioritize when people persuade themselves that the triffles they do are very important, but putt off those tasks that are really need to be done. It happens in case these tasks are not very pleasant, or if a person doesn't know what to begin with. Take into consideration that procrastination doesn't solve your problems, it may only make them worse. In this way it is logical to make a schedule of your urgent tasks in order of decreasing importance, and begin with the most essential tasks. Don't put off essential duties till late evening, it's just a psychological trick. 2. Complicated things to do are to be accomplished first. If you have two or more duties with similar priority, begin with the most difficult thing. It is human nature to put off the duties that seem difficult or unpleasant. It is unpractical both because you waste your time and because the longer you wait the more impracticable the duty would seem. That is why try to be honest to yourself, and begin with complicated duties. 3. If it is possible multitask. Take into account the words: if it's possible. For example, the situation on the road needs your concentration, that is why do not try to solve your business troubles on the phone when driving. It is a good idea to combine mental tasks with mechanical ones. When you need to water the flowers or to do the dishes, you may begin with these tasks whilst talking on the phone. But make sure that your efforts to multitask don't slow down your activity. Try these suggestions on practice, and you will save a lot of time. But nevertheless, take into consideration that no strategy will work if you waste time on unproductive things. Sometimes we tell ourselves that we will take some rest just for a minute but then we find it even more complicated to concentrate on our obligations. There is a famous proverb: business before pleasure.
