The problem ISN’T TIME management, it’s TASK management! When people say, ‘I don’t have time to do this!’ it’s either because they don’t want to do it, or because they haven't found the right solution to their task management problem yet.
If something feels like a chore and you don’t want to do it, you should really look at why. Is it that you simply don’t know how, or that it goes against something you believe in?
If it’s a case of simply getting organised, check out these options:
⛄️ Agile thinking - sprint runs
⛄️ Kanban - simple column approach
⛄️ …and good old Excel - options to spreadsheet your task till your hearts content.
The trouble is all this takes time too, so make sure you pick the one that works for you best and master it!
