In our endless efforts to successfully achieve work life balance by making sure we spend just enough time in the office to make time for more personal matters such as family, friends and life in general. We battle each day at the office, coping with deadlines, racing against time just to make sure to deliver all that is needed. At the end of the day, we’re stressed, down and all out of energy for anything else. This is when our personal life suffers.

When office tasks seem endless and out of control, we need to incorporate time management to make sure we get things done and still have enough time for leisure purposes. However, it’s easier said than done.

Time management takes a lot of practice, diligence and discipline. But with the right attitude, it will definitely help improve productivity.

One of the important time management techniques out there is keeping a to-do list on a daily basis. It consists of tasks that should be done on that particular day. It is also called a priority list. But not all to-do lists work and here are the reasons why they don’t:

You have too many to-do lists that you get confused which list to do first.
You have many tasks under your to-do list. You can only do so much so make sure you list the important and crucial ones first.
You to-do list is hidden. You need to be able to see your to-do list to make sure you get to it.
Your to-do list is complex and complicated. Keep your list simple – the type that even kids can understand.
The most common reason is that you simply don’t use your to-do lists at all.

To-do lists are a great help especially in how we manage time. They can help us get things done efficiently because we don’t have to waste time tracking our tasks or thinking what else needs to be done. With the right time management skills and making sure your to-do lists are effective, you will be able to actually get things done and still have time for your personal life.
