In an ever-changing world, it’s important to understand how to manage your time and make the most out of each day.

In 2017, The Rider Online published How to Adult: Time Management. In the story, Anna Jordan supplied readers with helpful tips and tricks to help improve punctuality and organization in their endeavors. However, fast-forward six years, and notice times have changed. We are living in a tech-dominated world with information at our fingertips. Normally, this would imply we get tasks completed quicker, but it is the opposite. Despite our abundance of resources, children and adults alike struggle to keep up with the expectation overload. In a more modern sense, here’s how to manage time in a virtual world. 

Areas of improvement: Initially, it was advised that to identify your weakest points you need to take a step back and review your day by sifting through everything you did and making a mental note to improve. However, 2023 doesn’t provide that kind of leisure time. Instead, space that step out throughout an entire week and, as you encounter them, make a note (on your phone where it’s easiest), that you can evaluate each week to see where you have and haven’t improved. Apps such as Headway and Notion are great for taking note of strengths and weaknesses, as well as general jot-downs. 

Make a to-do list: Objectively, writing down your daily tasks to complete is the most memorable way to manage time. However, with miniature motherboards at our beck and call, sacrificing our long-term memory is kind of inevitable. Using sources like Monday.com or Productive.io makes listing and timing your daily tasks smooth sailing. 

Set Reasonable Goals: This one doesn’t require much modification, because setting goals is a helpful skill in any scenario. However, be sure the goals you set for yourself are achievable within the appropriate time frame. Giving yourself impossible feats to accomplish only works to diminish your drive and lessen your productivity. Smaller goals don’t mean less work is being accomplished, because quality trumps quantity here. 

The universe is constantly moving and turning and changing, and sometimes we find it difficult to keep up. Our previous methods are outdated, and dragging our feet won’t slow down the evolution of technology. So, with a solid plan of action and enough mental fortitude, we can adapt to this wonky world.
