Power of 15: Make Better Use of Your Time

  1. 1. The Power of 15: Ways to Leverage Your Time Leadership Strategies with Hilary Potts 2018 © The HAP Group, All Rights Reserved
  2. 2. What is important is seldom urgent and what is urgent is seldom important. —Dwight D. Eisenhower
  3. 3. How can you focus on the important versus the urgent?
  4. 4. What Happens?
  5. 5. ‹#› Challenge #1 Too Many Competing Distractions We get pulled in many different directions with competing priorities. The tactical activities can take over the more conceptual and strategic thinking.
  6. 6. ‹#› Challenge #2 Overwhelmed by Size and Complexity We can get overwhelmed with our big audacious goal. We can be stuck on where and how to get started. Usually, we need a moment to think and create a way forward.
  7. 7. ‹#› Challenge #3 Activity at the 11th Hour Often waiting until the last minute, we rip it into high gear. We do what we can under the guise of a deadline. We work frantically to pull something together. But are we providing our best ideas and efforts under this tight timeline?
  8. 8. A recent Microsoft study found our digital lifestyle has made it difficult for us to stay focused. We look for instant responses and answers to the point that our attention span has diminished to less than that of a goldfish.
  9. 9. NaturalAttentionSpan Studies have shown that when we put our mind to it, the optimal attention span of healthy adults ranges anywhere from 10 to 20 minutes. We need strategies to use these short bursts of focus versus waiting and praying that we miraculously will find blocks of time in our day. These short bursts can get you started. As the project or activity gets underway, you will find a natural cadence and rhythm.
  10. 10. Power of 15 There’s power in taking 15-minutes to focus on just one piece of a project. The Power of 15 is a way to turn critically strategic activities that we seem never to find the time to work on and make slow but steady progress in 15, maybe 20-minute increments. Let’s look at how it works...
  11. 11. IdentifyYourGoal First, identify your goal. What do you need to accomplish that you keep putting off? What are you having difficulty getting started? If it’s a pretty big project, see if you can develop smaller goals or milestones. Smaller goals give you something concrete to focus your attention. Name something that you need to take care of that you are putting off.
  12. 12. TheSmallActions There is power in capturing the actions to complete the work versus keeping it in your head. You may find yourself pushing off activities to another day. Try breaking these actions into smaller components that you can work in 15-minutes. Shed the actions you may like to do but are not important.
  13. 13. Sort&Sequence To more efficiently make progress, prioritize your actions. Take your prioritized list and sort and sequence the actions into a cadence which allows you to leverage your 15-minutes to advance the effort. If you find yourself pushing out important activities, check to see if you can break these activities into smaller actions into its parts that you can work in 15-minutes.
  14. 14. Quick Tips to Implement the Power of 15…
  15. 15. Block Time on the Calendar
  16. 16. Set Your Timer for 15-Minutes
  17. 17. Use Travel Time Use travel and commute time to think, strategize, and work on key actions.
  18. 18. Prepare to Take Notes
  19. 19. Focus on What Matters The Power of 15 helps you focus on what’s important but may not feel urgent. It helps you advance strategic projects when you feel like there isn’t time to think. Give it a try. I would love to hear how you’ve made it your own.
