As a result of the pandemic, Generation Z members have been left with a reality that will force them to reevaluate time. According to Pew Research Center, Gen Z consists of those born 1997-2012. Members have been subject to virtual graduations, digital learning, layoffs, and odd jobs. With its oldest members turning 24 this year, there has been a great deal of economic instability. New graduates looking for entry-level jobs are competing while unemployment is at a record high.

“A lot of jobs didn’t get back to me, and it was, kind of, shouting into the abyss, and nothing is coming back,” Naomi Parker told CNBC Make It after applying for over 30 jobs.

While many Gen Z members may feel that the world is crumbling under them, they are in the perfect position to come out on top. All it will take is developing an understanding of how to make your time and money work for you.

Here are some tips that will help you speed up productivity and benefit the most from your day.

1. Set Goals

Use the SMART method to set your goals. Always make sure your goals are Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, and Timely.

2. Prioritize

Please make a list of your daily task and prioritize them based on importance and urgency. Follow this formula.

  • Important and urgent: Do these tasks right away.
  • Important but not urgent: Decide when to do these tasks.
  • Urgent but not important: Delegate these tasks if possible.
  • Not urgent and not important: Set these aside to do later.

3. Create a Time Schedule.

Create a schedule for completing tasks. This will help you be focused and efficient. Start by mapping out exactly how much time you need for each task. This will help you plan for any problems that may arise.

4. Take A Break Between Tasks

Paying attention to your mental health is vital. Managing multiple responsibilities can become stressful. To avoid losing focus or becoming unmotivated, take breaks between your task. This will allow you to clear your head. I personally utilize my breaks for mediation. However, you may find comfort in journaling, taking a walk, listening to music, or taking a nap.

5. Get Organized

Your calendar is your best friend! Organize project deadlines and all associated tasks. Utilizing your calendar for long-term time management will help you plan specific days for tasks.

6. Remove Non-Essential Tasks

Excess activities will add extra stress to your day and cost you time. Focus on the significant aspects of your life that will add value to your future.

7. Plan Your Time.

Commit yourself to have a laser-like focus when you wake up set clear intentions for your daily responsibilities. A great way to micromanage this is by creating a “to-do” list before you go to bed at night.

Wendy Williams made it clear during her recent virtual appearance on The Dr. Oz Show that she will not get the COVID-19 vaccine. 

Williams, 56, spoke with Dr. Mehmet Oz about her health scare when she collapsed on air during The Wendy Williams Show. He asked Wendy if she plans to get vaccinated, to which she replied, “No, I don’t trust it.”

“I’ve never gotten flu shot either, though. And you and I have talked about that,” Wendy added. She maintains that she rarely gets sick and doesn’t even take Tylenol.

As for the coronavirus vaccine, she reiterated, “No, I don’t trust it. There I said it. I don’t trust it.”

Dr. Oz, however, disagreed with Wendy and revealed to her that he already got his COVID-19 shot. He stressed that the vaccine has been tested and that it’s been proven to be safe. He then advised Wendy that she should get it, noting that she will feel safer having done so.

Despite Dr. Oz continuing to change her mind, Wendy maintains that she will not be getting vaccinated.

Check out their back-and-forth below.

Following Deadly Texas Blackouts, ERCOT Terminates Its CEO

Following the deadly blackouts that left millions of people without electricity and heat for days in subfreezing conditions, the Texas power grid president and CEO has been terminated.

On Wednesday, The board of the Electric Reliability Council of Texas, responsible for 90% of the state’s power, sent Bill Magness a two-month notice of termination.

During one of the worst blackouts in US history, the state’s top utility regulator resigned on Monday.

In a statement, the organization said, “During this transition period, Bill will continue to serve as President and CEO and work with state leaders and regulators on potential reforms to ERCOT.”

Magness was slammed during the blackouts that started Feb. 15 when a winter storm plunged temperatures into the single digits, creating skyrocketing demand for electricity to heat homes. Magness made over $876,000 in salary and other benefits in 2019.

As the system buckled, grid operators disconnected more than 4 million customers, which Magness claims was important to avoid a more devastating outage that might have lasted months.

During the storm, the power grid was “four minutes 37 seconds away from total collapse,” suggesting the Lone Star State may have been without power for weeks.

In his opening remarks at a recent board meeting, Magness said, “This was a devastating event.” He said,  “Power is essential to civilization.”

KHOU reported that during the storm, 356 generators were knocked inactive, nearly doubling what Texas witnessed during its last big winter storm in 2011.
