5 Tips to Build a Free Time Savings Account

Save Time Today to Use as Free Time When Needed

This is a guest post by Jessica Shields, a college professor and founder of College Study Smarts. Her goal is to take the mystery out of college by showing students how to be productive with study time and stay motivated to keep working towards their degree.

Spending time right now on a video game may mean scrambling tomorrow to create that presentation last-minute at work. Likewise, spending time today on the presentation can mean some free time before the presentation to relax and grab a coffee.

Are you working paycheck-to-paycheck, always finishing tasks at the last minute and scrambling to make time for what you want to do?

Or are you a saver, banking future free time by working ahead today so that you can spend time at a future date doing what you love?

7 Habits That Hinder Productivity

Self Reflection Can Show You Where You're Losing Time

Adi Szasz is a musician, writer and editor-in-chief at Groovehunt, an electronic music production blog. He loves to stay on top of his game, produce quality music and make the most out of each day.

Having a day job and several other projects on the side can make one feel fulfilled and active. However, time and energy can become sparse resources and managing them properly is a day-to-day challenge.

My real calling is music, but that doesn’t quite pay the bills yet. I needed a day job and I saw myself with considerably less time and energy to do as much as I did during unemployment. Surprisingly, lack of time made me ask myself if I was truly using it wisely. Self-reflection uncovered some of my issues, and they may be yours too.

Why You Should Always Keep a Fix It List

Make Sure That Broken Items Get Addressed in Your Life

When you are busy, it can seem there is always too much to do in the day. Urgent items and last minute items can take up the majority of your time.

Fixing things that aren’t working in your life end up taking a second (or third) priority to the tasks in front of you.
