Time management has a great importance to every blogger. So if you are a newbie blogger then the most important lesson you should learn is how to manage your time efficiently. You should learn it and practice it from the very beginning. Because most of the time blogging is a completely solo journey when you start. So try to learn this as early as possible, it’s a DIY (Do It Yourself) process. To practice time management you don’t need any expert, it’s all about your discipline and will.
Why it is important?
Because in blogging you are not just writing. You are handling multiple tasks like idea generation, research, content creation, setting different guide lines, seo, finding ways to reach more readers and defining overall strategy, it’s more like running a company. So in this process if you don’t have any proper strategy to manage your time then ultimately you will be drowned in the ocean of tasks.
In this process most of the bloggers loose hope, feel discouraged and leave after some time. I hope you are not in this category of people because I believe you have started your blogging journey with a great ambition and goal.
So to make your journey more rewarding, start to practice the craft of time management from the very first day. Remember a disciplined person never feels so much pressure. All pressure come on to those people who are indisciplined and have no value for time.
In this post I will talk about some specific advantages of proper time management.
What you will achieve from proper time management
When you are playing multiple roles at a time then obviously you will find shortage of time for activities other than your job. It happens, not only for you but most of the peoples who work solo for their dream. I know we are all passionate about our dreams and sometime in the process of chasing that dream, we neglect other important stuffs in our life.
But your life’s canvas is far more bigger/ wider than your single dream. There are other people whose expectations, hopes are attached with you. So if you learn to be a master of managing your time then not only you will get enough time for all necessary things but your existence will be far more enriching.
You will never fill exhausted
You know when people feel complete exhausted? When they start something without any proper planning. And planning is associated with your time management skills.
So if you maintain a time table with proper planning you will never fill over worked/ exhausted.
Feel of accomplishment
Accomplishment in your chosen path works as a stimuli. It makes you more energetic. How?
When we try to solve a bigger task at a time, we don’t find any clue where to start and how to end. But at the same time if we break that task into manageable pieces then by completing those small tasks gradually we accomplish the bigger task. So, If you maintain a proper chart of time to perform your each small tasks on daily basis then after completing each task within time you will get a feel of accomplishment which effects positively in your next task. Try it.
Because when you associate hundred of small achievements you will notice that you have achieved something really big. But the same thing seemed quite impossible at the beginning.
Easily reach your goal
If you don’t have a goal then how you will measure the amount of success you have achieved.
Suppose you are a blogger who have decided to right 20 posts in 30 days. That’s a measurable goal because you can clearly measure how much close you are to your goal.
So, always set a goal that you can measure with time.
Make your blogging journey more fulfilling
So the last thing is, a disciplined approach with properly managing your time makes your journey more smoother and fulfilling.
So now you may ask, shouldn’t there be any downs or rough phases? No I am not saying that but here I am trying to say that if you can be the master of managing your time then you will be in a better position.
So no more random approach, take a serious step towards managing your time.
