  3. 3. WHY STUDY THIS COURSE? © Time Management | Frank Wyatt This presentation will allow you to: • Identify the opportunity cost of time • Focus on why to manage time • Determine who is responsible for your time • Apply the 80:20 rule • Use a time log and how to analyse it • Determine the urgent versus the important • Achieve meeting efficiencies • Exclude tasks • Use your day more efficiently 3
  4. 4. COMPETENCIES © Time Management | Frank Wyatt 1. How much is your time worth? 2. What is the opportunity cost of your time? 3. What value would you put on having additional time? 4. How would you use more time if available to you? We all get allocated the same amount of time in our lives subject to when we die. How we use this time will determine how effective you are or how much you procrastinate and waste this scarce resource. This course will enable you with tools to maximise your scarce time resource. 4
  5. 5. WHY MANAGE YOUR TIME? © Time Management | Frank Wyatt What will you gain from managing your time? Do you ‘mean’ to manage your time, yet the urgent still captures the important? Why don’t you manage your time better? . 5
  6. 6. WHAT EXCUSES DO YOU GIVE YOURSELF? © <Name> | Contact person for this course Some excuses are… • Leave it and it will go away • Not my job • I will only be criticized • No resources • I am too tired right now • I am a perfectionist and so can’t do this right so I’ll not do it • Not enough time • The boss will only change his/her mind . 6
  7. 7. WHAT IS TO BE GAINED FROM MANAGING YOUR TIME? © <Name> | Contact person for this course 7 To avoid this!!! …and to do more in less time!!
  8. 8. DID YOU MEAN TO BE MORE EFFICIENT WITH YOUR TIME? © Time Management | Frank Wyatt 8 Who’s responsibility for managing it? Do you blame everyone / thing other than yourself? Do you enjoy living in crisis? Are you too lazy to manage your time? Playing the blame game; get over it!!
  9. 9. THE 80:20 RULE: WHAT TO FOCUS ON © Time Management | Frank Wyatt 9 The 80/20 principle states that in many situations about 20% of what you do yields about 80% of the results. With a typical to-do list of ten items, the 80/20 principle suggests that two of them will yield about 80% of the value. The remaining eight will yield the remaining 20%. For example, 20% of your customers give you 80% of your sales - concentrate on those customers. 20% of your customers make up 80% of your complaints - keep your perspective. 20% of the inventory gets 80% of turnover - keep these items well supplied. If you remember and implement this principle, it will not only give you a greater peace of mind but also make you much more effective.
  10. 10. OPPORTUNITY COST OF TIME © <Name> | Contact person for this course 10 • What is opportunity cost? It is what else could you do with a resource. • What is the opportunity cost of lost time? Here’s an example: • Salary per hour = $100 • Plus: support costs per hour = $100 • Total $200/hour • Possible to save 2 hours per day with greater efficiencies & effectiveness • 200 x 2 x 5 = $2000/week or $104,000/year
  11. 11. HOW TO MANAGE YOUR TIME © <Name> | Contact person for this course 11 • Use an Activity Log (Google ‘Activity Log’ for examples) • Be honest and accurate • Analyse your log Questions: • How did I use time? • How much time was wasted? • Was I focused on what I classified as valuable? • When did the urgent steal from the important?
