Time management is one of those life skills that requires us to revisit and fine tune it over and over again. As our lives changes, so to do our needs and priorities. I hope that the time management printables below will help you figure out your current needs and how best to meet them.

One of the best ways to make time management work for you is to take time to figure out what your priorities are. This allows you to determine how much time you need to give to different areas, and offers you a chance to make sure you’re spending your time where it’s needed and wanted most.
For more information about how I determine what are priorities, check out the post linked below.
Choose an Area of Focus
Picking one area of life to focus on at a time is a great way to build solid routines. Once you’ve built a routine or figured out the time management strategy that works best in that area, you can turn to focus to the next one.
By building our routines and systems slowly, in a focused way, we create and build upon solid foundations that will carry us through the more chaotic times.
If you’d like to know how I do this, I’ve linked the post below.

Track Your Progress
I believe that monitoring how we’re going is a great way to make sure we’re spending our time in the way that works best for us. Personally, I choose my top three tasks in my focus are to track.
I choose the three tasks that are most important on a daily basis, and then on a weekly basis, and I track and monitor how those are working for me. You can find the trackers I use below and you can find more detailed explanations by clicking the post links below.
- Check out my post Just Three Things for how I choose my daily top three

You can also you a basic weekly printable to log how you’re spending your time for a week. This is a great way to get a feel for your natural rhythms so you can plan your activities around the times that will work best for you.
One of the most effective ways to manage your time is to build routines into your day. Routines are like the guideposts that help give our days structure and keeps them moving smoothly. Building effective routines just takes a little time and thinking about what you want to accomplish with them.
I have a few routine building printables that I’ve used over the years when I’m building or changing my routines.
Sometimes the simplest approach is the best. The simplest tool in any time management system is a to-do list. Taking the time to write down the things you need to do helps you clear your mind so you can focus on actually getting them done.
I hope you enjoyed looking at all the time management printable and I really hope you found one or two to try out for yourself.
