How to Accomplish a Task Effectively

Every day we face a task. Whether it is a project for school, a task assigned by your boss, or even a personal goal you set in your free time. If you manage your time, efforts and resources properly, you can get it done it quickly and effectively.

Steps

  1. 1
    Start fresh. Always start fresh. Prioritize your objectives, draw out your options, and decide where to start.
  2. 2
    Create a schedule. Now that you've prioritized your tasks, create a schedule. Be careful in how you do this however, don't make your schedule too tight, and don't make it too loose.

  3. 3
    Picture a pyramid. Completing tasks/goals is like building a pyramid. First you draw out your blueprint. Then you gather your materials, you mould your brick, and then you build the base. After you have a base laid, you build a smaller layer on top of that, and a smaller layer on top of that, etc.
  4. 4
    Take a break. You won't get anything accomplished if you're falling asleep on the job. Therefore, get at least 8 hours of sleep a night, and take a minimum 15 minute break every 4 hours.
  5. 5
    Get an outside opinion. Sometimes you get so caught up in trying to get something done, you miss the obvious. So if you get stumped, try to get the opinion of a trusted friend, co-worker or even teacher if possible.
  6. 6
    Finish strong. When a racer sees the finish line, he doesn't slow down. He uses the energy he was saving the entire race to finish strong.

Tips

  • When you go to sleep at night, don't carry your project into your bedtime. Sleep well, and start fresh the next day. You won't go anywhere if you don't have sleep.
  • Conserve your energy, you don't want to use all your energy on one project. Never know when another one's going to pop up.
