Here are some life-changing tips on how you can take control over your own life and start using your precious minutes right now!

1. Create a List of Tasks and Prioritize them

We all know that to-do lists are a great way to get things done, but they’re not always as easy as we think.

A to-do list is a way of organizing tasks and prioritizing them. Some people prefer to start with the most important task, which will be easy for some but not for others.

Others like to do the easiest or least difficult tasks first so they can enjoy an accomplishment early in the day. The key is finding what works best for you and your personal style.

I’m sure you’ve experienced the frustration of starting your day with one priority and then getting distracted by something else so now you have a list of 10 things that need to be accomplished when it’s already 3 pm and none of them are crossed off.

Trying to juggle a job, family and personal life can be difficult. In order to stay on top of everything you need to do in a day, it’s important that you make a list of tasks for the day and prioritize them.
