Keeping Your Busy Life Together!
How do they seem to do it all!?!?
Have you ever wondered how these amazing dancers on IG seem to have the time to do it all? From dance lessons to master classes, dance conventions and competitions, photo shoots and oh yes, schoolwork... it’s called Time Management! I’ve got some Time Management Tips that every dancer will appreciate.
The key is to learn the difference between what is important and what is keeping you busy. Sometimes we get caught up in things that may take up time but may not be important (like scrolling through IG vs schoolwork)!
Here are three ways to help you prioritize what’s important to help you accomplish your goals!
- Get your Motivation! List your top 3 objectives for your day, week, or month. These can be your “Big Rocks” to chip away at with more time and effort. These need special attention. This could be a new skill like an aerial, or a school project! What’s the most important to you?
- Plan it out! Use a planner to outline your tasks. This could be your phone or a notebook. Every Sunday, plan your big rocks first, and then your daily tasks. And when you’ve finished a daily task, highlight it off your list! You’ll feel great pride each time you can scratch another task off your list!
- Track your Time! Set calendar alerts or reminders on your phone to keep you on task. How long you think it takes and how long it actually takes may surprise you!
Managing your time well means that you care about your goals and your results. It means that you want to develop your skills, be an example to others, and set the bar high! It’s up to each of us to take charge of our time and take ownership of the outcomes!!
