Transcript

  • 1. Practical Time Management
    A few Principles to take away and apply
  • 2. The OATSPrinciple: Apply to any period of time (a day, week, …year, 3 year plan, etc)
  • 3. S is for Specific
    (the more specific your goals the more pleased you will be when you fulfill them.)
    M is for Meaningful
    (you are motivated by purpose)
    A is for Action orientated
    (make sure you have the power to make it happen)
    R is for Responsible (does your conscience feel good about what you are trying to achieve?)
    Looking at outcomes:SMARTEST goals
  • 4. Outcomes: SMARTEST goals
    T is for Towards(focus on positives rather than negatives)
    E is for Exciting (follow your passions and dreams)
    S is for Supported(what resources can you access to make your goal achievable?)
    T is for time-bound (put you goal in a clearly defined time frame.)
  • 5. Activities: making your ‘To Do’ list work.
    Today list and to don’t list:
    Clear Clutter
    Make a list of not more than 7 things for your day ahead.
    Make a list of things you don’t want to do and which you don’t need to do …by taking things off your ToDo list that tend to sit there.
    Create 30 minutes a day to clear your back log folder.
    Just pick 1 or 2 things a day to clear from your backlog.
  • 6. Activities: 6 Ds
    Drop: What if I drop this?
    Diminish: What if I only do part of it?
    Defer: What if I do it later?
    Delegate: What if I could ask someone else to do it?
    DO it straight away.
    Decide!
    - Make a conscious Decision.
    Otherwise you have procrastination or the madness of doing too much at once.
  • 7. Matching: putting the task together with the right person. Don’t set people up to fail and don’t give them mindless tasks.
    Brief: give people clear instructions.
    Commitment: Check that they understand, there are no more questions, that they have the skills and the commitment.
    Monitoring:control the risk – get the right balance.
    Feedback:recognise the work done, observe ways to improve.
    Activities: DELEGATION- if you are not delegating, you are not developing
