  2. 2. Plan Your Time Http://www.power-hour.co.uk – Bite Size Training Materials 2013 By the end of the Power Hour you will be able to: • Recognise the main reasons that you struggle to manage your time • Clarify the main purpose of your job, and identify the tasks that matter the most • Use a selection of models and practical ideas to plan and prioritise your time in order to maximise your effectiveness
  3. 3. Plan Your Time Http://www.power-hour.co.uk – Bite Size Training Materials 2013 Focus • People with energy but little focus are well- intentioned, hardworking people who confuse ‘doing’ with ‘achieving’. • People with little focus rarely plan or reflect so are in a constant state of fire-fighting, or ‘running to stand still’. • Before you leap into action, or say ‘yes’ to a request, take a moment to think. WHY are you going to do this? What benefit will it bring?
  4. 4. Plan Your Time Http://www.power-hour.co.uk – Bite Size Training Materials 2013 Procrastination The sources of procrastination are many, but can be summed up under three headings: • Lack of clarity about what is expected • Lack of confidence in your ability to complete the task • Lack of commitment (enthusiasm) for the task in hand
