  16. 16. Time Management Time management is commonly defined as the management of time in order to make the most out of it. What you really manage is your activity during time, and defining outcomes and physical actions required is the core process required to manage what you do.
  17. 17. Simple Techniques to Manage Time Time Management <ul><li>Managing time takes practice. Practice asking yourself this question throughout the day: &quot;Is this what I want or need to be doing right now?&quot; If yes, then keep doing it. </li></ul><ul><li>Find some way to realistically and practically analyze your time. Logging your time for a week in 15-minute intervals is not that hard and does not take up that much time. Do it for a week and review your results. </li></ul><ul><li>Do a &quot;todo&quot; list for your day. Do it at the end of the previous day. Mark items as &quot;A&quot; and &quot;B&quot; in priority. Set aside two hours right away each day to do the important &quot;A&quot; items and then do the &quot;B&quot; items in the afternoon. Let your answering machine take your calls during your &quot;A&quot; time. </li></ul>
  18. 18. Simple Techniques to Manage Time Time Management <ul><li>At the end of your day, spend five minutes cleaning up your space.

Effective delegation will free up a great deal of time for you. </li></ul>
  19. 19. Self Management Management is not just for managers, just as leadership is not just for leaders. We all manage, and we all lead; these are not actions reserved for only those people who happen to hold these “positions” in a company
  20. 20. Self Management <ul><li>Live by your values, whatever they are. You confuse people when you don’t, because they can’t predict how you’ll behave. </li></ul><ul><li>Speak up! No one can “hear” what you’re thinking without you be willing to stand up for it. Mind-reading is something most people can’t do. </li></ul><ul><li>Honor your own good word, and keep the promises you make. If not, people eventually stop believing most of what you say, and your words will no longer work for you. </li></ul><ul><li>When you ask for more responsibility, expect to be held fully accountable. This is what seizing ownership of something is all about; it’s usually an all or nothing kind of thing, and so you’ve got to treat it that way. </li></ul>12 Rules for Self Management
  21. 21. Self Management <ul><li>Don’t expect people to trust you if you aren’t willing to be trustworthy for them first and foremost. Trust is an outcome of fulfilled expectations. </li></ul><ul><li>Be more productive by creating good habits and rejecting bad ones. Good habits corral your energies into a momentum-building rhythm for you; bad habits sap your energies and drain you. </li></ul><ul><li>Have a good work ethic, for it seems to be getting rare today. Curious, for those “old-fashioned” values like dependability, timeliness, professionalism and diligence are prized more than ever before. Be action-oriented. Seek to make things work. Be willing to do what it takes. </li></ul><ul><li>Be interesting. Read voraciously, and listen to learn, then teach and share everything you know. No one owes you their attention; you have to earn it and keep attracting it. </li></ul>12 Rules for Self Management
  22. 22. Self Management <ul><li>Be nice. Be courteous, polite and respectful. Be considerate. Manners still count for an awful lot in life, and thank goodness they do. </li></ul><ul><li>Be self-disciplined. That’s what adults are supposed to “grow up” to be. </li></ul><ul><li>Don’t be a victim or a martyr. You always have a choice, so don’t shy from it: Choose and choose without regret. Look forward and be enthusiastic. </li></ul><ul><li>Keep healthy and take care of yourself. Exercise your mind, body and spirit so you can be someone people count on, and so you can live expansively and with abundance. </li></ul>12 Rules for Self Management
