These days it seems like everyone is always busy and constantly hard pressed for time. I can empathise with this. If you have read Mon Space Group’s company profile, you will realise that we are incredibly ambitious, and our business efforts venture into many different sectors. As the CEO that looks over so many operations, time management is one of the skills that I had to master.

For all of you out there who wish you can do more with your limited time, here are my best tips. They’ve worked for me, and perhaps they will for you as well.

1. Start with a daily plan.

Peter Bregman, author of the bestselling time management book 18 Minutes, advises to start our day with making a to-do list before doing anything else. We are often so busy with checking emails, returning calls and managing problems in our company that its very easy to lose track of priorities.

By taking a step back and looking at the big picture, you can set priorities for your day. Rather than feeling stressed by a list, try to feel empowered. Try to start off with smaller, easier tasks to start the momentum, and as you complete those tasks you can get ready for the bigger things. Bregman puts it this way: what can you realistically accomplish that will further your goals and allow you to leave at the end of the day feeling like you’ve been productive and successful?

2. Learn to say “no”

The more successful you are, the more likely you will be getting many invitations or requests to events, projects, and collaborations. But the reality is you can only do a limited amount of things well. By learning to politely decline invitations, you will be able to keep your workload within a reasonable amount, focus on only the important things, and make sure you do them well. To me, time is a resource way more valuable than money, and we should learn to be careful with where we invest our time.

3. Delegate your work

Delegation skills may be one of the most neglected skills in management. This is unfortunate, because supervisors who do not delegate effectively often get caught up with work that could be handled just fine by others. They end up being too busy to connect with people, too busy to plan, too busy to lead and too busy to think big.

The most common reason for not delegating is the fear that the task won’t be done correctly. The truth is, as long as you do not start delegating, your employees would never have the chance to learn how to do things right. Besides piling on unnecessary work onto yourself, you are also not effectively training those who work with you. My golden rule is: if someone else can do the task 80% as well as you can, delegate it.

4. Go off the grid

Email and office interruptions are often huge distractions that kill time management. You set out to accomplish a goal and a sudden influx of messages and emails distracts you from what you are doing, leaving you frustrated and often less productive.

Here’s a lesson I learned over the years: when you have important, thinking work to do, get away from your desk. Alternatively, you can go to a quiet room, a coffee shop, or even step outdoors. Being away from your desk for an hour or so won’t cause you to miss much, and the efficiency you gain can be remarkable.

5. Embrace waiting time

As I often travel in between meetings and conferences, there is plenty of my time that is spent commuting—especially when travelling during peak hours in the insane Kuala Lumpur traffic. This is also why I’ve learned to embrace waiting time. I used to dread the trip between one place to another. Now, I fully utilise these time slots to be productive, such as writing a blog post, reviewing a proposal, or replying an email. In fact, I am editing this post as I am travelling to my next meeting!

Time management is not a complex thing to learn, but it does take a lot of practice and discipline. To all the readers of this blog, I hope the tips above helps you in one way or another. May you master this important skill and live life to its fullest!
