  • How we waste time ? • Minor Time wastes: – Interruptions we face during the day. – Being a slave on the telephone. – Unexpected/Unwanted visitors. – Needless reports/Junk mail. – Meetings without agenda.
  • How we waste time ? • Major Time wastes: – Procrastination. – Afraid to Delegate. – Not Wanting to Say “NO” – Low Self-Esteem. – Problems With Priorities.
  • Time generations • There are three generations of time management . – 1st generation. – 2nd generation. – 3rd generation. • After using this generations we noticed that, we do what is very urgent, not doing what very important. • So the fourth generation appeared.
  • "SMART" GOALS • S - Specific & Self. • M – Measurable. • A - Achievable & Positive. • R - Realistic & Rewarding. • T - Time Bound.
  • Pareto’s Principle (80/20 Rule) • 80% of Work gives 20% Results & 20% of Work gives 80% Results • One Rs.500/- v/s Hundred Rs.5/- • Effective v/s Efficient • Smart work v/s Hard work

  • Time Management Matrix Urgent Not Urgent Important Not Important
  • Quadrant I • Represents things that are both “urgent” and “important” – we need to spend time here • This is where we manage, we produce, where we bring our experience and judgment to bear in responding to many needs and challenges. • Many important activities become urgent through procrastination, or because we don’t do enough prevention and planning
  • Quadrant II • Includes activities that are “important, but not urgent”- Quadrant of Quality • Here’s where we do our long-range planning, anticipate and prevent problems, empower others, broaden our minds and increase our skills • Ignoring this Quadrant feeds and enlarges Quadrant I, creating stress, burnout, and deeper crises for the person consumed by it • Investing in this Quadrant shrinks Quadrant I
  • Quadrant III • Includes things that are “urgent, but not important” - Quadrant of Deception. • The noise of urgency creates the illusion of importance. • Actual activities, if they’re important at all, are important to someone else. • Many phone calls, meetings and drop-in visitors fall into this category.
  • Quadrant IV • Reserved for activities that are “not urgent, not important”- Quadrant of Waste. • We often “escape” to Quadrant IV for survival. • Reading addictive novels, watching mindless television shows, or gossiping at office would qualify as Quadrant IV time- wasters.
  • Is it bad to be in Quadrant I? • Are you in Quadrant I because of the urgency or the importance? • If urgency dominates, when importance fades, you’ll slip into Quadrant III. • But if you’re in Quadrant I because of importance, when urgency fades you’ll move to Quadrant II.
  • What’s the problem with urgency? • Urgency itself is not the problem… • When urgency is the dominant factor in our lives, importance isn’t. • What we regard as “first things” are urgent things.
  • Where do I get time to spend in Quadrant II? • From Quadrant III. • Time spent in Quadrant I is both urgent and important- we already know we need to be there. • We know we shouldn’t be there in Quadrant IV. • But Quadrant III can fool us.
  • Time Management Matrix Urgent Not Urgent Important Not Important
  • What can stop you? • Negative Thoughts. • Negative People. • Low Self-Esteem. • Fear of Failure. • Fear of Rejection.
  • What can stop you? • Counter Procrastination: – Recognize that you are Procrastinating. – Why you are Procrastinating? – Make up your own rewards. – Ask someone else to check up on you. – Identify the unpleasant consequences.
  • Action plan • Enter the RISK ZONE. • Communicate & Clarify Values. • Analyze your use of TIME - “80/20” • Do not “REACT” to Urgency. • Deal with One Paper only Once. • Allocate time according to Priorities. (Quiet Hour, Session I,II,III,IV) • “ TO DO LIST” (Top 3 Priorities today) • Have a Follow through. • Learn to say two letter word - “ NO” • Visualization and Auto-Suggestion. • Delegate low Priority Item.
  • Action Plan - Steps • Step 1 – Define your Role • Step 2 – Set your Monthly Goal • Step 3 – Schedule your Weekly Time • Step 4 – Adopt it Daily - 80/20 • Step 5 – Act on it, Now!
