In our day and age, time is one of the most valuable commodities we have. And yet, we so often waste it. Hence, it’s crucial to start taking note of where we spend and invest our time.
“If we take care of the moments, the years will take care of themselves.” – Maria Edgeworth
The best ways to save money are to look at what you are spending it on and where you can invest it. Time is no different. Even more so, if you lose money you can make it back; lost time is gone forever. Investing your time means you’re doing beneficial things – going to the gym, studying, being with your loved ones, being with yourself, the list goes on. Spending time means you are wasting and losing it, which means you could’ve spent it better or wiser.
So how do we measure our time usage?
The simplest answer – time sheets. Track what you do and how much time you spend on every task. Pay close attention, noting even small things such as sending texts. Yes, it sounds silly, but trust us. You’d be surprised at how much time we waste daily doing inane things.
There are plenty of software products at your disposal, from Microsoft Excel to the Toggl app, to make it easier to track your time accurately. To be honest, though, keeping a logbook works just as well. Chat to us about your needs, and we’ll find your best solution.
Set aside time to review. This can be at the end of the day or once a week, and work through the notes you have taken. Look at how much time you’ve spent on your tasks. Now ask yourself, if you’re spending or investing your time? Search for ways in which you can improve your time usage; such as collaborating your shopping trips, asking for help or putting your phone down and turning the TV off.
