Level Up Your Time Management Game this 2024

Happy New Year my love!

Can you believe how fast 2023 went?! If there’s one lessons we have taken from last year, it’s that life moves at warp speed. Sometimes it feels like we’re juggling a thousand things at once and trust me, I know just how overwhelming that can feel!

As we dive headfirst into the new year, we’re going to make 2024 our most intentional, productive, and one of our best years yet. It’s time to be intentional with every tick of the clock, so here are six tips I’ve got to help us achieve exactly that.

1. Think SMART. and set those goals
Ask yourself: ‘What do I want to achieve this year?‘ I can literally be anything – launching a side hustle, passing your driving test, or finally mastering the art of making the perfect latte. Whatever they are, these goals should be clear, concise and make you feel excited to wake up in the morning.
You’ve got to think SMART – Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Time-bound.

2. Prioritise your tasks
Ever feel like you’re juggling a million things at once? Same. That’s why this year we’ve got to pick our battles. Identify your VIP’s (Very Important Priorities) using the Eisenhower Matrix: a task management tool that helps you organise and prioritise tasks by urgency and importance. Knock those out first, and the rest will fall into place.

3. Schedule your Playtime
Life isn’t just about the hustle; it’s about balance. And that’s where time-blocking comes to the rescue. Allocate specific hours to hustle on your passion project, learn a new skill, or binge-watch that guilty pleasure without guilt. Trust me, even your chill time is all part of being intentional.

4.Ditch the Distractions.
We’re all guilty of being slaves to our notifications. Time to take back control! Turn off those non-essential pings, close those extra tabs, and create a vibe-friendly workspace. Your focus will thank you later.

5. Take Mindful Moments.
One of my ‘In’s’ for 2024 is staying present in the moment. Embrace mindfulness – whether it’s a quick meditation, deep breath exercises, or just spending 5 minutes soaking in the sunshine. Being present is the ultimate flex this year.

6. Reflect, Revise, Repeat:
Pause and reflect, not just when the Wi-Fi is acting up. Regularly check in on those goals, adjust your game plan, and celebrate those small victories. Life is all about the journey, not just the destination.

As we navigate this year of endless possibilities, let’s keep our heads high and our hearts open. You are ultimately your biggest cheerleader, so keep on believing in yourself, in your goals, and in the magic that happens when you hustle with intention.

If there’s one thing we know, it’s that time is precious, so let’s make this year one for the books. I have a pretty good feeling that this year will be a special one for all of us💫

Bisous bisous!
