      Why is there a need for the fourth generation of time management?
      Well, one definition of insanity is to “keep doing the same things and expecting different results.”
      time
    • understanding time
      “A no uttered from the deepest conviction is better than a yes merely uttered to please, or what is worse, to avoid trouble.”
      Mahatma Gandhi

      “Why have a time log?
      memory

      time
    • understanding time
      Urgent
      Not Urgent
      time
      important
      not important
    • understanding time
      move into quadrant II
      • quadrant I—manage: the quadrant of necessity; things are both urgent and important
      • quadrant II—leadership and quality: the quadrant of focus; things are important but not urgent
      time
    • understanding time
      move into quadrant II
      • quadrant III—(AVOID): the quadrant of deception; things are urgent but not important
      • quadrant IV—(AVOID): the quadrant of waste; things are neither important nor urgent
      time
    • Urgent
      Not Urgent

    • move into quadrant II
      How do I get there?
      The six step process
      connect to mission
      review roles
      identify goals
      organize weekly
      exercise integrity
      evaluate
      time
    • step 1: connect with vision & mission
      • What is most important?
      • What gives your life meaning?
      • What do you want to be and do in your life?
      Consider the big picture. The key to this connection lies in the clarity of your vision around such questions as:
      time
    • step 2: identify your roles
      • we have important roles at work, in the family, in the community, or other areas of our lives
      • Roles represent responsibilities, relationships, and areas of contribution
      time
    • step 3: select quad II goals for each role
      • what is the most important thing I could do for each role this week that would have the greatest positive impact?
      • consider the relationships for each role
      • review a “perhaps” list for ideas
      • identify the steps that need to be taken to achieve long-term goals
      time
    • step 4: organize weekly
      • translating high leverage quad II goals requires a framework
      • most people are always trying to find time in their overflowing quad I/III schedules
      • They move, delegate, cancel, and postpone—all in hopes of “putting first things first”
      the key is in scheduling your priorities, not prioritizing your schedule
      time
    • step 4: organize weekly
      Distinctive Elements of Effective Weekly Goals
      • they can be either an area of focus or a specific activity
      • they are usually quad II goals rather than typical “to-do’s” or daily action items
      • they are driven by conscience
      time
    • tips to start your day
      Tip #1
      preview your schedule—get your bearings:
      • review your compass
      • Look at the day in the context of the week
      • renew your power to respond to changes in a meaningful way
      time
    • tips to start your day
      Tip #2
      prioritize: identify activities as QI or QII—keeps QIII and IV out of your schedule
      • emphasizes the importance paradigm
      • keeps you aware of choices you make
      must understand that prioritization includes only items that you’ve put in the framework
      time
    • tips to start your day
      Tip #3
      T planning: time sensitive activities on the right, any time activities on the left
      • makes for effective schedule decisions
      • Helps you remain sensitive to commitments
      Best use of your time: remember importance rather than urgency!
      time
    • step 5: exercise integrity in the moment
      Should I carry out my plan or make conscience directed changes?
      time
    • step 6: evaluate
      • What goals did I achieve?
      • What challenges did I encounter?
      • What decisions did I make?
      • Did I keep “first things first?”
      To be successful, you must make successes of one week the foundation for the next. At the end of the week, ask yourself some questions:
      time
    • step 6: evaluate
      different ways to evaluate
      • mark accomplished goals on weekly compass
      • keep a journal or daily log and review
      • review past weekly compasses
      • ask specific questions about your performance and actions
      time
    • step 6: evaluate
      weekly evaluation
      • What did I learn from the week as a whole?
      • Am I setting goals that are realistic but challenging?
      • Have I been effective in work related communications?
      • Have I been successful in maintaining a Quad II perspective?
      time
    • closing thought
      A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step.
