01) DAY TO DAY WORK SCHEDULE:

Make a concise list of your day to day routine. Try to finish all the work on that given day. This will not make more burden on your next day.

 

02) KEEP CALM:

People mostly ignore the importance of being calm. They think that they can work more by getting overactive. It’s wrong. By getting hyper, you waste your time in wrong works. Your brain works faster when you keep calm and control your nerves. You will find more effective ways to work faster and proficiently.

If you are running out of time daily, then you are probably doing some works that are draining your time. It is time to evaluate the report and find out where you lose your time. So you can make a new chart on what work to do and which one to avoid.

 

04) BE VISIONARY:

As we all only get 24 hours on a given day, then it is essential to know which work will provide you with fruits and which one is a total waste of time. That’s how you can save your time from investing it in wrong deeds.

A) The answer is management and innovation. But moreover that the whole concept is standing on the concept of smartness and presence of mind. Yes, that is the real root of smart work. You have to grow your presence of mind because it can give you the right decision at the right moment. It is not certain, that always you can go with your schedule or any planning. Then you have to do it. Even the previous topics like time management and innovation also depend based on the presence of the mind. You have to be active with this.

 

B) You can not always manage times by pre-planning. When the works come, and at the same time, you need some moments in your personal life, then you need the presence of mind. At that moment, innovation can not make you free from your works, which can only make it shorter than before. You need the presence of mind to handle that situation. A smart worker can manage everything at the same time.
