Time Management as a Way of Life

I am a mother of a 6-year old kid and employed fulltime as an assistant. I need to master techniques as everything requires time.

To manage my time efficiently at the office, I make use of a tickler system. I sort out my tasks based on urgency and importance and put them in 5 folders representing the 5 days of the work week. Not all urgent tasks are important so I always focus on priorities. The priority ones goes to the monday folder which I have to accomplish on he first day of the week. Others that doesn't require urgency fall in the corresponding days its attention is needed.

I use my cellphone to calendar tasks, meetings and schedules of my boss. It helps that most cellphone units nowadays can be programmed to send out notifications ahead of the calendar entries.

Another advantages of having a cellphone is that I can delegate tasks/communicate to someone while on my way to the office. I make calls when traveling. I find that combining such activities as a great way to maximize time.

I allot my spare time to delete old text messages and old contacts as it clogs up its memory. I do the same with my emails. Sorting emails during lunch time does wonders. Part of my email management goes to my tickler system if it requires reports or drafting of documents. I check my inbox frequently and flag emails that I deem important.

Blogging Makes a Difference

In this day and age, blogging is a great venue to share and learn experiences from across the world. It proves to be a powerful means to be heard and to influence people's thinking through one's writings. The pen is really mightier than the sword!

My 2011 blogging goal is to be a more responsible blogger. I will supplement my writings with relavant data by doing some research on whatever information I post on my blogs. I will try to imbibe a culture of impartial, politically-correct journalism instead of posting my personal opinions on socio-political issues that interest me. I will adhere to the social responsibility that comes with blogging from now on. ExtraBLOGanza Contest

Mel and Ria Online's Birthday and Beauty Giveaway

I am passionate about being a mom. I had my daughter when I was 34 and I feel so blessed to have been given the opportunity to take good care of her. She is God's gift to me and so it is impossible not to spoil my child with love!

I may not have superhuman intelligence to answer all questions raised by my daughter but I read a lot and try to remember everything I have ever learned or experienced to be an effective mom. Young as she is, she learns from what I do.

I am giving her providing unconditional love and support. I make sure that there is an atmosphere of love, acceptance, and empathy in our home as she learns to control her behavior and the consequences of her actions. By teaching her independence, she will have the decision-making skills needed for adult life.
