4 impact hacks for managing your time

Don’t wish you had more time, make more instead of the time available to you. Make it count.

Here are 4 quick proven impact hacks to consider when wanting to dial up your impact by how you manage, and make the most of, your time.


Choose how you spend your time. Dare to say no to meetings where you are not needed. Plan your time enough so that you have time for the things you enjoy (your strengths that energise you) and where you can add the most value.


Don’t overcommit. Assess how much time is needed before you commit to something. Take a pause, stop and reflect before you commit. Make sure you are in the moment to allow you to make good decisions.


Do one thing at a time. Multitasking is more time consuming than performing each task separately. Focus and get there quicker. Whatever you are doing, be 100% present in the moment.


Have at least 30 minutes each week blocked for pure thinking. Ring fence it. Don’t let the urgent things trump the important stuff. Take a step back, think, reflect, observe – and watch how clarity of thought increases and wisdom grows.
