The overall objective is to develop a weekly plan that we use as a rough guideline in achieving our most important projects, tasks and priorities over a week. We then review each evening our rough plan to develop our daily action list. The daily action list is prioritised in order of tasks that need to be completed.

Power to Choose

We constantly make choices every day. If we set a goal of health and fitness which means we exercise every morning, then that needs to become our priority, we have the power to choose what we do. When the alarm goes off of a morning, we have a choice – we can stay in that nice warm bed and grab another hour of sleep or we can get up and exercise and be on the path to achieving our goals. It is always our choice. Thousands of years ago, Aristotle said, “You are what you repeatedly do.”  So are you going to keep repeating what you are currently doing and not change or move forward, or are you going to take some time and identify ways that you can improve...

Respecting and Managing Time

Comments Off on Respecting and Managing Time
At the end of the day have you ever thought to yourself, “Wow, I was busy all day, but I don’t feel like I achieved anything,” or “Today was a great day; I got loads done!” What caused the difference in the outcome? Both were busy days, but one felt unproductive and the other was productive. The difference usually lies in the fact that you got the most important tasks done. That’s why you feel good. It was a productive day, not just “being busy.” Many of us underestimate the value of time and take it for granted because time just goes on and on. We often say ‘we’ll do it tomorrow’ or ‘l’ll do that when I have time’. What we don’t understand is that time is a valuable...

Setting Boundaries

We often say “yes” to some projects, tasks or meetings when we really should be saying no. It’s up to us as an individual to set our own boundaries. At times we say “yes” because: We want to help We don’t like being rude We don’t like conflict We worry if you say ‘no’ this time they may not ask you again We  feel you may be offending others We  feel someone might not like you We often find it more difficult to say “no” to a request from an adult. That can be because we all like to help and contribute, and that should be important, but it needs to be balanced with our other urgent and important tasks. When we’re clear on our priorities, it gives us the courage to say ‘no’ in a pleasant...

Good time management means you have a yearly plan that provides direction and triggers you to move forward. The yearly plan is broken into quarters so tasks are timely and spread out to help you manage and not become overwhelmed. From quarters it is broken into smaller sprints. That is two week blocks. In each quarter I have six, two week blocks. This is a terrific way of maintaining the big picture of time management.

Time Management – Multi-Tasking

Multi-tasking means doing more than one activity at the same time. Many of us do this and boast about how good we are at multi-tasking.

Multi-tasking makes you feel like you’re getting more done and being more productive, which is a sensational feeling especially when we’re time poor. The reality is you’re actually achieving less and taking longer.”

Time Management – Delaying Tasks

Comments Off on Time Management – Delaying Tasks
We are all well aware that life is busy. At times it may feel like it’s far too busy for us to keep up. This means that we can put off tasks that should be done. Putting off tasks is not necessarily the same as procrastination. To put off a task is to know that you have to do it and continue to put it off. The following are some tips to help you moved forward. Identify the task that you are putting off and do the task. Don’t start or do anything else until you have done that task. If the task is something that is too difficult, you don’t have the skills, or even too trivial then consider delegating or outsourcing. At the beginning of each day most time management experts...
