  • Hello my name is…My presentation is on Effective time management, Manage your time, don’t let your time manage you.I have been researching effective time management and helpful tools to improve it for the last few weeks.
  • Overwhelming tasks:We sometimes have large tasks thrown at us that seem endless. They can be discouraging and stressful cause you don’t know where to start and when you do start they seem to take forever.Task Seems unpleasant:Fear of Failure:“In order to succeed you must fail, so that you know what not to do the next time.”Unclear goals:Tendency to Overcommit:Many people are soProcrastination:Unclear Task flow:
  • Be Organized:Use these following tools to better organize your time.“1 hour of planning will save 10 hours of doing.”
  • Plan Ahead:Prioritize your tasks:“20% of the average workday is spent on “crucial” and “important” things, while 80% of the average workday is spent on things that have “little value” or “no value”.
  • Use these following tools to better organize your time.
