Chapter 1 - Recognising Time Management Challenges

This chapter enables you to understand the processes which will make you more effective whilst minimising the “Thieves of Time” which plague our personal productivity and sense of achievement.

It will not only teach “Time Tips” but will introduce you to classic tips and techniques that will enable you to use your time more effectively to achieve both organisational objectives and increase your quality of life.

 

In this chapter you will learn how to:

  • Set positive objectives
  • Identifying your time stealers
  • Learn simple tips to overcome common time stealers
  • Identify the internal dialogues that inhibits our ability to manage our time

Chapter 2 - Establishing Priorities

What are your job priorities? How do we decipher between the vital few and the trivial many? We will look at setting short and long term priorities; how to decide between multiple urgent and important tasks ensuring promises are kept and objectives met.

 

In this chapter you will learn how to:

 

  • Establish long term business and personal priorities
  • Plan mid and long term priorities using a priority planner
  • Plan to eliminate ‘time stealers’ whilst achieving your short term priorities
  • Understand the balance between Urgency and Importance when planning priorities
  • Use the 4 D’s for making effective priority decisions

 

What is a priority? We all have priorities whether or not we carry them out and complete them. A priority is a task that MUST be carried out within a given time period. This chapter will show you how to identify your long-term goals, identify & rank your priorities etc.

Chapter 3 - Daily Planning

“Under promise and over deliver” is a phrase often used in Customer Service. It should also be a mantra for Time Management. Customers are dissatisfied when they are given a time for a delivery and are let down at the last minute. When we set expectations and then don’t deliver  it causes stress and frustration not only for our clients but also our colleagues, our staff, our managers and directors; not to mention the stress caused to our friends and family.

 

In this chapter we will examine the techniques and also the benefits of short term planning to ensure you complete what is needed and necessary. We will cover:

 

  • What items on our task list needs prioritising
  • How to plan and schedule your day effectively
  • Using your prime time
  • Making use of your contingency or interruption time
  • Benefits of daily planning
  • Using a time planner

 

Time tip

Manage others expectations of delivery realistically. Always under promise and over deliver - not only will you be super effective, you’ll be a hero to all that know you.

 

Do you ever start the day with clear intentions of what you are going to achieve, only to end the day feeling frustrated and negative because you weren't able to do everything you had planned? It’s quite natural that you are going to encounter unexpected situations during the day such as interruptions, unforeseen events, and so on. Working life is full of unpredictable events and crises - but when it happens on a regular basis it can be as a result of poor diary and Calendar control.
