– Delegate Responsibilities to Others
Since you are only one person and there are only so many hours in the day that you can use resourcefully, you need to consider delegating responsibilities to others who have the ability to do some of the tasks that you normally do. For instance, older children and teenagers can help with the laundry, dishes and simple general housekeeping duties, when you take the time to teach them how to do such tasks. Some of them can even help with the cooking duties if they know how. Of course, you should be already know that someone may not do something exactly the way you will, however, enlisting the help of others can get more done in a days time than not.

– Set Time Limits
When you take the time to set time limits you will find that you can get more done in the long run for the various things you are trying to juggle throughout your day. However, you should not necessarily sit on a clock all day, since watching the time can be distracting and a waste of time in the long run. Setting an alarm or a timer may work well for you, if you are one of those types of individuals who have no true sense of time.
– Make a To Do List
Making a to do list is one of the best measures for managing your time and working through the things you need to do. I am a big to do list maker and I find it very helpful for multi-tasking and achieving my daily goals. You may want to write up a master to do list with various sections of the different things you need to do during your day. To do lists may vary from shopping and grocery lists to lists that involve housekeeping, your online business, childcare and many other issues. When you have a to do list in hand you will always know the next thing you need to attend to while multi-tasking. Having a to do list can also assist you in measuring your progress. You can do this by simply drawing a line or placing a check mark by those things on your to do list that you have completed. This is something that can also offer you a sense of satisfaction for completing the various items on your multi-tasking to do list.
