May Time Management Quick Tip of the Month – Know Your Prime Time
Athletes sometimes talk about being “in the zone,” a state of consciousness that occurs periodically when it feels like all their reflexes and skills are achieving maximum potential. Most of us experience a smaller version of this everyday; we just need to learn to recognize it and take full advantage of it. Our biological clocks are set to give our minds and bodies a boost at certain times during the day. Some of us are “morning people. Others may be night owls. Whatever the time frame might be, most of us have a period of three to four hours each day when it is easier for us to concentrate, and when our creative juices are fully flowing. If you haven’t done so already, figure out when your prime time occurs. Then, whenever possible, plan to work on your most important projects during this time. You will get more done, and the quality will be consistently better.
