    I know a lot of people always find themselves busy at work with deadlines, plans and other no-name pieces of work. Here are some tips I'd like to share:
    1. Make daily to-do list
    2. Set priority (urgent and important first)
    3. Do the most complex work in the most productive time of a day (find it yourself)
    4. Do a single thing at a time (avoid multi-tasking)
    5. Learn to say no to other requests
    How do you manage your work time? Please share your tips in the comment below.

    I think you have already mentioned all the things in your thread and there aren't many things which are required to do to manage the time at work. Anyone who will follow the tips you mentioned shouldn't have many issues in managing their time at work.

    If you consider / experience procrastination investigate that particular item, and make a plan to accomplish it. Break it down to little action steps and just begin. Same with those "projects" that seems hard / impossible to complete.
    Time management is one of the most important skills - what you listed is accurate and good practice.

    Yes prioritizing the work is the main key, I think firstly complex task should be done, then moving from difficult to easy should be followed. because when ever a person starts his work, in the beginning, the energy is high.

    It's vital that you develop valuable strategies for supervision your time to balance the conflicting demands of time for learn, leisure, earning money and job hunting. Time organization skills are expensive in work hunting, but also in many other aspects of life: from revising for examination to operational in a holiday job.

    Time for leisure, earning money or a holiday have to be manageable. This task is not that easy, these skills will come from discipline, if a person is disciplined in his her work, time will be managed easily. First one has to be disciplined then only other skills will be developed.

    I'm a bit confused here because you may have different sources of income and time for leisure is not always a fixed amount per day or week. Could you share the ways you manage your time with us? Thanks a million.

    Aside from creating a daily to-do list, I also create a not to-do list. This way, I will know what tasks I shouldn't be doing and just delegate them to my staff. With this, I can mostly fit in most of my tasks without going extra long hours of work. Here's a relevant podcast: Be a Role Model, Not a Superhero

    your first priority is work firstly make a list of work you have to do in a day and then find out the important work you have to do fistly do that after you do any other.
