  • 2. Time Management: The Art of Getting Things Done Coach Thom Finn March 2014
  • 3. A Day in my Life…..March 1997 Beverly and Linda called off… New Room attendant MIA… Auditor didn’t do a bucket check… Shuttle driver was behind… 2 days to get ADR up by $10… A beat down on the STAR report... 2 “death threat” comment cards… Rumors of Inspector in the area… I accidentally ordered $4000 of hand towels yesterday….
  • 4. “Thom, you need….” 1. Move away from Chaos to Order. 2. Improve your core competency of time management. 3. Your most important inventory were the hours in a day.
  • 5. Why Are You on Payroll? • Our first Table Exercise: a few minutes discussing this existential question @ your tables. • Clue: It’s the essence of commerce; of every business in a capitalist society. • 2nd Table Exercise: repeat with why are you NOT on payroll? • Spokesperson =longest service.
  • 6. Why are/are not You on Payroll? • Discuss and Learn • Take notes of what the other tables came up with.
  • 7. Master Your Time and • Reduce your stress • Get more 2nd Quadrant things done • Have better work/home balance • Deliver the results that matter • Advance your career • Move from Manager to Leader

I’ll save you.” • Enables those under her • Puts out Fires • A Leader… • Works ON the business • Tackles the core problem of the call offs & schedule • Talks “We, us, plural You” • “What are our possible solutions to solve this?” • Develops every single person in her charge • Fire Prevention

  • 14. Expert by necessity • Planning is easy. Executing is hard • How it usually starts out for me… – Sales Client • No sales steps/Need Sales steps • Not Direct enough for 2014/need to learn how • No Selection/Start De Selection – Plan GoalTasksExecute • Understand, Buy In, Whirlwind
  • 15. Expert by necessity • 90% of time • Time Management • My Choices – A) Beat them – B) Scream at them – C) Start Coaching on TM – THEN results
  • 16. UDE’s=Undesirable EventS • IP says “Problems have blocking connotation.” We have UDE’s not problems. • We hide. My favorite hiding places – The Van, BJ’s and Laundry • Hide somewhere enjoyable. Golf vs Laundry • Take Smart time vs. Abdicating: oversold, 150 checkouts, snow storms,
  • 17. UDE’s=Undesirable EventS • Enabling. “Boss Man, this lady needs directions.” “We are out of toner.” • Glorified Baby Sitter. Fear of not being needed? Fear of moving up from the JV team? • Not a wise career path
  • 18. Expert by necessity • No Blame, No fault, Nothing “Bad“ • Bigger Whirlwinds in 2014
  • 19. You • Are Not: • Stupid, lazy, unorganized • Hopeless • Incapable of getting it • Are: • Facing a whirlwind • Too many demands • Not suited for traditional TM • maybe a little ADHD
  • 20. Tools not Short Cuts • Tools • Principles/Disciplines • Rules • Address the ROOT problem • Tricks • Promise fast results • Band Aids • Treat symptoms not root cause
  • 21. 4 Tools Help Leverage • Inter-dependent • Master them one tool at time • 17-30 days…. • Try, Try Try again • At end, decide which tool you want to start with Execute stuff
  • 22. Paper vs. Technology • What % of time do you sit in one spot? • Best for communication with yourself • In 15 seconds, I can write……but • Faster, easier, more creative • Defeats the purpose if technically challenged • Loose the BIG idea
  • 23. Loops Cause Stress • Looping, repeating, round and round • 5 loops and you are “stressed”
  • 24. I do not have time.
  • 25. I do not have time. Start HERE. Anywhere.
  • 26. My Word that this Works. • It will get worse before it gets better. • Results will sneak in, creep in, dissolve in • Watch for them; They come faster than you think. • Warning: In 3 months, you could be working just as much but your results will be greater, goals achieved faster, etc. • Your 9 hour day in April > 9 day in Jan.
  • 27. The 4 Tools Of Execution 1. The Coach Thom style TASK LIST 2. The Default Schedule 3. Office Hours 4. Simplified Project Management
  • 28. Multi-Tasking is Evil • Prove I can save you half the time • Exercise part 1: write down the sentence I gave you AND the numbers I give you. Note your time • “Multi-Tasking is the Biggest Lie you have ever been taught.” • 1 2 3 4 5…..27 • What was your time?
  • 29. Multi-Tasking is Evil • Exercise part 2: write down the sentence I gave you ONE LETTER AT A TIME Immediately Followed by ONE NUMBER at a time. • M • 1 • U • 2 • What was your time?
  • 30. The Coach Thom Style Task List • Loops stink • Priority systems don’t work in 2014 • Ignore your CAPACITY • Capture the details right away • How long will this take • WHEN will you do it • More than a to do list…or multi-tasking…..
  • 31. The Coach Thom Style Task List • CAPACITY or INVENTORY management • Use your inventory/resources wisely • Forced quick prioritization • Saying NO • Saying NOT NOW • Focus on only a few smart things
  • 32. The Coach Thom Style Task List • 3 columns • #1 SPECIFIC Task –Grab those ideas ASAP and record them –Underestimate how fast brain processes –Ancillary thoughts wont be lost –Natural sequential nature of your brain

  • 34. The Coach Thom Style Task List • Warehouse or Parking Lot • As big as you want • Good idea but not now • Store in your warehouse • Next 4th of July… • Next time I hire a receptionist….
  • 35. The Coach Thom Style Task List Any time you have a Task -a to do- it goes here It DOES not go anywhere else It does NOT go on a PDA, IPHONE, Blackberry…. Loss of control of your time and tasks causes stress
  • 36. Exercise to Lock in the Learning • Brain Dump as much as you can • Even if recorded somewhere else • SPECIFICS of the task • HOW LONG in minutes • WHEN will you do it • The winner is she/he with biggest list
  • 37. The Coach Thom Style Task List Never Ever Ever Lose When you are done with a page or even a page of TO DO's…get a great big giant magic marker and CROSS IT OFF! This is NOT a calendar nor does it replace one…..keep using your paper calendar, your Franklin Planner, your PDA…..for appointments only.
