- Helps You Understand Your Daily Scope – The scope of a project is what has to be done to call any one project complete. When you look at your day there are many tasks that must be done on a daily, weekly or monthly basis to consider your work complete. Using project management will help you accomplish this smoothly.
- Track Long Term Projects – By seeing project management goals in mind, you can better keep track of long-term projects.
- Keep Track of Resources – Minding the budget and other resources takes daily attention to detail, and using project management procedures to keep track of them works like a charm. Send reminders to balance your books, or to buy new trash bags, and you will feel so much more organized.
- Avoid Forgetting Recurring Tasks – Even if you only do something every quarter, having a reminder set up in advance will help you avoid forgetting it. Plus checking off completion of daily tasks feels productive.
- Assists with Daily Lists Prioritizing – One look at your calendar or task management system can help you prioritize your day better. It’s so easy to forget even the smallest tasks that seem unimportant, but those little tasks add up!
- Creates an Environment of Success – Being super organized might sound boring but the more organized you are, the more successful you will feel and in control. People who are good at planning and organizing, are naturally more efficient with their time than those who are not.
- Feelings of Accomplishment – If you get organized, use systems, or find someone who can set up a system and keep you organized, you will feel so much more accomplished.
- Less Stress – Stress is a serious problem and can cause poor health. Being more organized cuts down on your stress drastically. If you’re not good at being the project manager, use tools to help you manage your projects or hire someone to help you, like a Virtual Assistant and outsource this project.
- Provide More Time – The biggest thing a project management can do is provide time to spend doing the things you want to do, whether it’s spending the afternoon with your child, attend workshops, or going on a short vacation.
- Assists with Delegation – If you use project management for everyday tasks, you’ll get a better idea of what tasks you need to delegate or not delegate. You’ll have a much more accurate view of your day.
I have tried a few different management tools and finally settled on one I really like and use everyday. I will be writing about which ones I tried and my thoughts and review on their ease of use and learning curves.
Do you have a favorite project management tool you just absolutely love? Share the tools you use and let us know what the learning curves were that you experience, is it free or not and anything else you want to add. Thanks!
