Bianca Cheah reveals how she learnt to master her time

Get ahead at work, and get home early.

time management, Bianca Cheah, productivity

I’m honestly the worst person when it comes to time management, and get side-tracked quite easily (hello, Instagram!). However, over the years I’ve learnt how to manage my time to suit my lifestyle, and my many hats – mother (to Sporte), wife, daughter and business owner. As a result, I’m more productive and focused at work and at home.

Keep scrolling to see my top seven time management tips. Who knows, they may work for you too.

My top 7 time management tips

1I constantly RECONFIRM and PRIORITISE


I like to tell my husband or staff what I have on for the day, week and month. Saying it out loud helps to cement it in my mind. It’s like saying affirmations; the more you repeat and visualise the task, the more likely it becomes a reality.

2I make the CALENDAR my best friend

About that breaky catch up… Sowwy 😉

The calendar works wonders for me. I genuinely love what I do so I tend to forget about time and get caught in the creative bubble (sometimes for hours on end). In my opinion, that’s not being time efficient. That’s why I always add everything (including deadlines) into my calendar. I schedule my yoga workouts, catch ups with friends, meetings, and events, and I prioritise tasks that are urgent.

3I create a TO-DO LIST every day


Every morning I create a to-do list. I always pop the tasks that I didn’t want to do from the day before right at the top of the list. Then, I work on my to-do list throughout the day in between my booked calendar events.

4I am GRATEFUL every day


Sporteluxe is a 24/7 job. I go to bed thinking about it, I dream about it and it’s the first thing that is on my mind when I wake up. 99% of the time, Sporteluxe makes me smile, and for good reason. It’s a platform that aims to help anyone reading it become a better version of themselves. For me, this is my passion. I love what I do and I would inject my last cent into the business. Sure, I get stressed and there are plenty of times I’ve failed. But it’s these setbacks that have been my greatest lessons and have got me to where I am today. I’m so grateful for my team and all that I’ve learned along the way. If I had my time again, I wouldn’t do anything differently.

5I create and make time for my SUPPORT NETWORK


Living away from my parents and twin sister is hard, but I’ve learnt to deal with it. I always make time to call and visit them (although it’s not as often as I would like). I will always make time for my family, closest of friends and loved ones. It’s this support network that gets me through those tough times.

6I have a MENTOR I can call on


There are so many days where I just don’t have a clue. That’s when my mentor comes in handy. Find someone you’re close to, who is experienced and willing to take you under their wing. Then you can call on them in those times when you need extra advice. This will save you valuable time in researching and outsourcing for the answer. Luckily, my husband is one of my mentors. I don’t know where I’d be without him.

7I make sure my computer desktop and office desk is neat, tidy and well ORGANISED

There’s nothing worse than sitting down at my desk when there’s papers, folders, Post-it notes, empty tea cups, pens and mess everywhere. I always say that the environment you’re in is a great reflection of the work you produce. That’s why I spend 10 mins every morning clearing my desk and organising everything into their appropriate areas. When it comes time to search for what you need, you know where to look for it.
