Poor time management is something that is always seen with creatives and many small businesses especially here in Nigeria where everything is demanding for time from traffic jams to business meetings and a whole lot more. What is poor time management? Poor Time management is the inability of planning and exercising conscious control of the time spent on specific activities to work smarter than harder. As creatives and small business owners if you don't manage your time property it will result into poor time management and the implications of poor time management are enormous and they include. Procrastination is the most obvious result of poor time management. Creatives or small business owners who don’t have control over their time end up letting tasks sit until the last minute – and then they feel a lot of stress when they try to play catch up. If you’ve let too many tasks sit, you might miss deadlines entirely. Lack Of Priorities and Focus The biggest single time-management problem for most people is their lack of priorities and focus. It’s even worse when there aren’t clear goals to follow. If a creative or small business owner allows themselves to be distracted by numerous unimportant tasks, they can end up wasting a lot of time. For example, getting distracted by every new email or starting one task after another without finishing anything. Most creatives have more work to do than could be completed in one day or even one week. If you don’t know how to effectively manage your time, you can rapidly start to feel overwhelmed. If that’s happening to you, the best thing you can do is focus on the one most important task you have. Then, you can feel like you have achieved something and met a deadline. However, you’ll most likely need to leap straight into the next crisis to meet another deadline, never having enough time to get ahead of the curve. Getting proactive about your work can greatly help you meet all your deadlines early. Sometimes the issue is that a lot of creatives and small business owners won’t delegate other tasks that they really should they want to do everything their self. Small business owners, in particular, can be guilty of this. You must delegate when appropriate. Then you can focus on the tasks where you can add the most value. This results in higher quality work from everyone involved.
