Join Us for a GREAT Discussion on Keys to Effective Time Management

Basic Premises:

Accept – you will never be able to do everything you want… because there is just too much to do.

Purpose - the driving force behind managing your time is to accomplish your ultimate goal/s.

Four Skills Required to Use Your Time Wisely

  • Analysis
  • Planning
  • Delegation
  • Self management

What to do                                        

  • Spend your time doing what is key to the success of your business
  • Work on tasks that can only be done effectively by you.
  • (4 “D’s” -- Do it…. Delegate it….Defer it….or Dump it)

When to do                          

  • Plan your time/ organise your work schedule so that you are never working the issues that fall into the two “Not Important” categories. 

How to do (organise)

  • Create a “template” schedule for each time period – month/week/day - which allocates time periods for specific types of tasks. 

How to do (discipline)

  • The key to efficient use of time is planning
  • Work from lists & mark the items for priority (a,b,c)

If you schedule on importance not urgency – the urgent will almost never occur!
