    • Set goals
      When a goal is too vague, you may never know how to reach it or even when you have reached it. Make sure that you know exactly what you hope to achieve.
    • Set goals
      When you have a goal that is measurable, you will know how far you have to go to reach the goal, and when you get there.
    • Set goals
      It is commendable to set your sights high, but sometimes we try to accomplish more than we can actually do. Your goals should be such that, if you “extend yourself” you can just reach them.
    • Set goals
      This means understanding how long you need to complete each task, how much concentration you need, and whether or not you can work on another task at the same time without impairing the quality of your efforts.
    • Set goals
      It is important to set time guidelines for your goals, so that you can keep track of your progress as you are going along and can be alert to when you are falling behind schedule.
    • The 4 D’s of time management
      As a leader you will be faced with many tasks. It is safe to say that you will not be able to do everything, so it is wise to periodically make a list of the tasks that confront you and prioritize them. This technique may be helpful:
      • Do
      • Delegate
      • Delay
      • Delete
    • The 4 D’s of time management
      Determine from the list the things you think are most important to accomplish, and are things you should do yourself.
    • The 4 D’s of time management
      Remember that there many people within your business with skills, experience, and motivation to carry out a wide variety of tasks. A real leader do not try to accomplish everything themselves and recognizes that some things are better handled by others.
    • The 4 D’s of time management
      Some things can wait. The danger is delaying too many things until deadlines are near. The best policy here is to consider when things are due, how long it will take to accomplish them, and what your current workload will allow.
    • The 4 D’s of time management
      If you have set goals using the guidelines we mentioned earlier, you may recognize that some of them are not achievable or realistic, or that they are just not important. A good leader knows when to concentrate on the important and eliminate the rest.

      • Focus on your goal
      • Tune out interruptions
    • Consider your personal prime time
      When you plan your tasks, think about your own “prime time.” If you do your best work early, plan to do the routine tasks later in the day and concentrate on the more challenging tasks when you are at your best. If you don’t really get going until later, handle the routines in the morning and save the more difficult tasks for later.
