Time management tips, time management skills
My name is Mark Walsh from Integration Training. This is our top 7 time management tips for busy people who wanna get more done without going crazy.
1. Get scented. So, get yourself together physically . Take a deep breath before you do anything.
2. Get a system. So, we use Getting Things Done by David Allen. Now, have a good system out there. Some kind of structure for how you handle your work flow. So, it might be a daily review or weekly review. Some kind of a system for looking at what you are doing.
3. Get it out of your head. All those ideas there in your head. All the different things you think you might need to do. Get those down. Get those out. Record them. Have some reliable system preferably on a list which brings us to.
4. Get specific. So, what concretely is it you need to do. There's something on your list for example Sort Marketing Plan. It's too big and your brain will look at that and say how would I do that? It's too much and move on to something else. Instead, you get all the things out of your head into specifics. Like call Dave or email Susan around marketing. Ask her the top 3 marketing companies in Brighton whatever it is. So, really specific on your list.
5. Get a crumple zone. So, what I mean by this is a time and day that isn't booked out for things are ready. So, if your days are already completely chucked up from 9 till 7 with meetings. You won't have any time to do the things that will come up. Most people's jobs today over 50% of their time and sometimes 80% is taking out with reactive things. Things that come in. So, some kind of space that crumple zone to do that is absolutely critical.
6. Get committed. There's actually no such thing as time management as to Dr. Who. But most of us are managing is our focus, our attention, energy and our commitments. So, what is it you said you would do and you wouldn't do. When people say they haven't got the time what they mean is i over committed or I prioritized something else. So, know what you're saying "YES" to. For this, you need to be able to say "NO" – equally important, and you also need to know what's really important for your job. So, you're not just being efficient but you're also being effective.
7. Get human. So, we're not machines. We do need time for rest. We do need time for flow and flexibility. So, as well as get efficient time management system. Its really important to make space for being a human being as well. If you're interested in Time Management Training for your organization, please get in touch. You can give us call or email us on our website. Love to hear from you.
Be creative: The best ad
Be motivated: A foot has no nose
Of the many interactions I had with my mother those many years ago, one stands out with clarity. I remember the occasion when mother sent me to the main road, about twenty yards away from the homestead, to invite a passing group of seasonal work-seekers home for a meal. She instructed me to take a container along and collect dry cow dung for making a fire. I was then to prepare the meal for the group of work-seekers.
The thought of making an open fire outside at midday, cooking in a large three-legged pot in that intense heat, was sufficient to upset even an angel. I did not manage to conceal my feelings from my mother and, after serving the group, she called me to the veranda where she usually sat to attend to her sewing and knitting.
Looking straight into my eyes, she daid "Tsholofelo, why did you sulk when I requested you to prepare a meal for those poor destitute people?" Despite my attempt to deny her allegation, and using the heat of the fire and the sun as an excuse for my alleged behaviour, mother, giving me a firm look, said "Lonao ga lo na nko" – "A foot has no nose". It means: you cannot detect what trouble may lie ahead of you.
Had I denied this group of people a meal, it may have happened that, in my travels some time in the future, I found myself at the mercy of those very individuals. As if that was not enough to shame me, mother continued: "Motho ke motho ka motho yo mongwe". The literal meaning: "A person is a person because of another person".
