Norwalk, Conn. (PRWEB) June 4, 2006
There’s just never enough hours in a day or days in a week. Between busy careers consuming more than the traditional 40 hours per week, extracurricular activities, family commitments and work around the house, there just never seems to be enough time. AP9 BusinessMax, a professional development and business solution discount program available from Adaptive Marketing LLC, reports that using a few strategic time management skills can be critical for surviving today’s nonstop lifestyles.
AP9 BusinessMax members can save money while shopping at their favorite office supply and business media retailers. By simply logging into DealPass, members can receive substantial savings on travel services, corporate gifts, health benefits and electronics. Members can shop online or in the store, which means these valuable discounts save both money and time.
AP9 BusinessMax offers these tips for finding the motivation to cross those to-do’s off the list and making effective time management a habit for work and life.
-- Make a list of all tasks to be completed. Don’t worry about which ones are more important yet, and avoid spending a lot of time making the list.
-- Begin with the most important assignment. If it’s large, divide it into smaller projects.
Focus only at the task at hand. It’s easy to get distracted by e-mail, the telephone, the television and family demands. Setting a deadline may be helpful.
-- As projects are completed, cross them off the list. This will create a sense of accomplishment and generate motivation.
-- Find an environment that’s conducive to your work style. If background noise is distracting, try working in a quiet room. If music keeps the project moving, then pack a pair of headphones to use at the office.
-- Complete a task, and move on. Some jobs are more boring than others, but keep working; rely on the fact that there will be one less task on the list. Don’t worry about being a perfectionist. Go back and refine or touch it up when everything is crossed off the list.
--Avoid procrastination as much as possible. Whether or not it’s intentional, it happens to everyone. But lack of time and increased pressure will only result in more mistakes and frustration.
In addition to these helpful time-saving strategies, members can enjoy exclusive discounts on professional development, sales tools and business media every day, concludes AP9 BusinessMax.
