(DailyThrive.com) – In our busy lives, meeting deadlines can be a challenge. It can even feel overwhelming. By taking a proactive approach, we may be able to stop procrastinating and meet our objectives on time.
Here are a few pro tips for meeting deadlines:
- Get organized. To figure out what we can take on, we need to know what responsibilities we’ve committed to already. To take on a new project, we may need to wrap up an old one. Getting organized will help determine what time we have available, what projects remain outstanding and exactly how much time, energy and resources we have left to take on any new projects.
- Commit only when we’re able. Once we’re organized, we can make sure that we don’t commit to anything that will add a strain to our time, energy, or resources.
- Create a plan. If we need to meet a deadline, we need to be able to break it down into actionable steps that meet the following criteria: measurable (we can easily check our progress), specific (we know exactly what is required) and achievable (it’s possible with our time, energy, and resources).
- Set reminders. Using technology or planners to remind us of when to work on a new project or when the project is due can help us more successfully meet our deadlines.
