Here are the above points shortly explained for your benefit (taken from the article,the relationship between time management and loan repayments):
1. Know yourself.
First and foremost, you have to know who you are. You can’t structure your time effectively if you don’t know your dreams, strengths, and challenges, as they will determine the course of your life i.e. what you prioritise. What are the things that you think most about? What takes up your time most of the time? Perhaps it can be worthwhile to write down your thoughts of certain things or aspects of life and then come back to them at a later stage. This way you can discover a whole lot about yourself.
2. Plan and prioritise.
Take the first 10 minutes of every day to plan your day. Don’t start your day until you complete your plan. An important time of your day is the time you schedule to schedule time. As our lives become less compartmentalised and more integrated, we find ourselves doing many things at once. So by planning and prioritising, one can stick to the most important things and do them first.
3. Learn to say no.
Saying yes to every single thing is saying no to yourself. Know your priorities and your limitations and don’t commit to anything that doesn’t align with them. The fact is, there will always be things to do and people that want your attention, and that’s just fine. Life is all about the company we keep. But – we can’t say yes to everything. Not saying yes to everything will help you to manage your energy, no car goes anywhere without fuel. So refuel yourself by prioritising people and tasks.
