Gain a personal sense of time

  1. 1. more precious than any amount of money, gold or silver KEEP A TIME LOG gain a personal sense of time"Make sure you know where your time goes. Dont depend on memory, its treacherous" - Peter DruckerKeep a record of how you are spending your time, and quickly discover a truer perspective on where yourday and week goes.Divide each day into fifteen minute intervals, and at the end of each hour briefly record how the last 60minutes was spent. FInd a format or style that you feel comfortable with. If it helps create a list of abbrevia-tions (and possibly add definitions) that are relevant to your current walk of life:Some examples: Hwk = homework, M = meetings (pre arranged group meeting with or without an agenda), I =interview (any pre arranged conversation with another individual, with a purpose), D = discussion (any talkingnot classified under M or I), P = phone calls, R = reading, C = commute/travel, W = writing, K = cooking in thekitchen, S = shopping, R = reflecting, thinking, etc...If you are disciplined the task will only take up a few minutes a day.Look back at the end of one or two weeks and take some time to review and reflect on the data. Group yourtime under the key headings that you made, and then review and reflect asking:1. Do the time allocations reflect your priorities in your work/family/life circumstance?2. What are the the items which take up significant portions of your time and contribute nothing towards your goals? What would happen if they were not done at all?3. How much time each day was available for use at your own discretion, as opposed to being committed time to others?4. Could anything be done more efficiently or simplified with out causing problems?5. Are you doing things that could be delegated to others or could others be asked to help carry some of the workload?TIME ACTIVITIES TIME ACTIVITIES
