Hi, everyone. Scott Munden here from Huntleigh Group.

Welcome to part four in our time management series. The final segment we talked about assessing our time and we talked about prioritizing our time and then we talked about measuring progress.

So we want to wrap up this series by talking about how to adjust and create some slack time. So let’s go ahead and get started.

So time management is kind of fluid, right? Time is fluid, your environment is fluid. So here’s a couple of ways that you can go about adjusting and creating some slack time.

• Number one is review and reflect, constantly being reviewing how you’re progressing, reflecting on what’s working, what’s not working.

• Number two is self-care. And I know it’s kind of an overused phrase, but it is important to take care of yourself.

• Number three, flexible scheduling. You don’t have to compress everything into a certain time period. Be flexible in your schedule.

• Number four, avoid perfectionism. Focus on excellence. Perfectionism can lead you down a rabbit hole.

• Number five is time blocking. We already mentioned that there’s certain times where you’re going to be more productive or more inclined towards certain types of tasks. So block the time for those tasks.

And I think that those things all will help you and guide you in staying fluid, adjusting, putting a little bit of slack time into how you’re managing your time. Because that slack time, you’re never going to be at 100%. And that slack time will give you some room to be more flexible and to adjust. So there you have it. It doesn’t go unnoticed that talking about blocking time or planning time to be spontaneous or impromptu is a bit of an oxymoron.

That’s why if you build slack into your plan, you can do those things spontaneously and you built the slack in so that you can come back to the things that you had planned.

In any case https://huntleigh.com/videos/ https://huntleigh.com/blog/ we will have further series for time management, but thanks for watching. We’ll see you.
