"time management is the key to efficient working" What Are Your Most Common Challenges To Time Efficiency? • Distractions / Focus • Misjudging time required • Lack of priority • Rationalizing (“Can do it tomorrow…”) • Lack of commitment to success
  3. 3. What Are The 5 BIG TM Lies? Big Lie #1 “I am not in control of my distractions.” Big Lie #2 “I can effectively multi-task and I have to to get everything done.” Big Lie #3 “I know I should do this…I will but I don’t have time right now.” Big Lie #4 “My stress comes from outside.” or “I do better under pressure.” Big Lie #5 “I know my goals and I don’t worry because I usually get there.”

  7. 7. 2. Become a Mindful Unitasker Multitasking for productivity is a myth… • You can only give full attention to one thing • Unfocused actions lead to stress MINDFULNESS: Awareness in the present moment without judgment Learn how to perform MINDFUL activity: • Observe the difference in a basic activity (eating, listening) when you are fully engaged and focusing • Do one thing at a time, do it very well, and then move on • MINDFULNESS not only reduces stress but promotes a positive sense of accomplishment because you are aware of what you have done
  8. 8. 3. See Activity by Consequence The Covey Model for Prioritizing is all about understanding the CONSEQUENCES of COMPLETING or NOT DOING a given activity
  9. 9. 4. Create Your Bucket List Rather than the 2 dimensional thinking of PRIORITIZING put your activity in the practical way we think of tasks: • Put your To Dos into the appropriate bucket • Schedule every item in your Must Do bucket • Move one item a day from Should Do to your Must Do bucket • Move one item a week from Could Do to Should Do • Put a time limit on your buckets that make sense for you, an example: Must = 1 day, Should = 1 week, Could = 1 month If you expect it to get done you should schedule it to be done! MUST DO SHOULD DO COULD DO
