Good Time-m­ana­gement skills

Essential in helping you keep your job and reduce your stress levels. Here
are some strategies you can use to help you manage your time effect­ively:
Plan ahead for each day. Prioritize (list in order of import­ance) the things you must accomplish each day. Allow a realistic amount of time to complete each item.
Have back-up plans in place (for example, for child care and transp­ort­ation).
Always plan to report to work at least 15 minutes before your shift starts.
Make sure you have a reliable alarm clock.
Have a reliable form of transp­ort­ation.
Keep a monthly calendar noting personal and family activities and appoin­tments. Record all activities and appoin­tments and coordinate them with your work schedule.
Share household duties with your spouse and children.
Establish set times for daily activities such as homework, baths and bedtime.
Check your phone messages and write them down. Open mail daily.
Pay bills twice a month (for example, on the 1st and the 15th of each month).
Keep an ongoing grocery list, noting items that need to be replaced as they are used up, and shop once a week for the entire week.
