With a reduced work week this week thanks to Labor Day, it’s even more important to be productive this week than most. That’s why you can’t afford not to ignore these four fantastic time management strategies from 99U. While all the tips are pretty useful, I particularly suggest their time management idea to front-load your work week.

What does that mean exactly? It means putting all of the most important activities and deadlines you have throughout the week as your top priorities. Start doing these things first and don’t worry about scheduling out the rest of your week. By doing these important things before you worry about those other tasks, you can ensure they get done, even if they take longer than you expect and if they take less time on these activities, any time you have afterwards can be used to get ahead on your work the next week. Now that’s some great time management!
