How to exterminate time wasters

There are many people who actually don’t know what they really want to do in life, and in such case, they keep doing whatever comes along the way, they keep doing unproductive works and at the end of the day are left with no fruits in hand. Many others know what they really want to do but are impeded by number of causes. This article will help you identify some of the top time wasters and enlighten you with useful egresses.

Forget past. Don’t think about future

What is done is done. You cannot undone it. No matter how much you regret doing or not doing something in past, past wont change. There’s only one thing you can do with your past, that is to accept it. Learn from your past. Have the cognizance that your present will be past and make sure you don’t have to regret anything in future. Elicit the most of your present.

Set your Priorities

If you haven’t set your priorities yet, you need to do it now. The reason is that if you are unaware of your priorities, then you don’t know how much time to spent for different tasks. In this case, you may end up spending 80% of your time doing trivial things.

After you have set your priorities

Lets say you have list down your priorities from ‘A’ to ‘Z’ in most prior to lesser prior task. Now spend maximum time in performing task ‘A’ and least time in performing task ‘Z’. This is the best way to manage your time.

Stay away from distraction

Find out what distracts you most. Make efforts to get over it. Remember what your priorities are, and how important those things are and how unimportant this thing (your source of distraction) is.


Stay away from conflicts. They waste your time + energy. Stay focused. Be enthusiastic and always do productive work.

Personal and professional life

Keep a line between your personal and professional life. Concentrate on your present task. Try to do it the way nobody else could.

Get rid of day-dreams

Its not bad to see dreams. After all, it all starts with dream. You dream, you go after it, you achieve. But too much day dreaming kills your time. Dream less. Work more.

One thing at a time

I have seen people, who try doing several things at a time, but they end up performing no task properly. You have your priorities. Pick up one thing and don’t stop until its over. Once its done, pick up the second thing. Likewise, complete all your tasks.

Guilt and Regret

These two are the worst feeling of a human being. If you regret something or feel guilty, you keep on thinking about it over and over again. Try to get rid of this feelings. They waste lot of your time.
