Three Goals for Better Time Management
Do you ever have the feeling that there aren't sufficient hours in the
day? Time management is something that can make a huge difference to
what you can achieve during the working day. The following are a series
of tips to help you and your team manage time successfully.
Organization and goal setting
Decide your personal life/career objectives.
Specify the objectives in specific terms. Make them measurable: have specific aims and deadlines.
Break your aims down into assessable objectives.
Review your aims at regular intervals. Don't just write them down and forget them.
Keep your written aims at hand always.
Focus on the efforts that contribute to your self improvement.
Review your personal mission, aims and objectives at regular intervals - and assess how much you achieved.
Plan your time. Don't let it control you.
Assess your work carefully and allocate priorities.
Allocate priorities in order: A's, B's, C's and D's.
A's are important and urgent.
B's are important but not urgent.
C's can be dealt with outside of you key business/sales time.
D's are unimportant, and can be discarded immediately.
Make appointments with yourself in your diary for personal time
to evaluate your progress and plan time for the coming days and weeks.
Stick to your day as you have planned it. Make a plan and stick to it.
To help with planning, always ask the questions: what, who, why, where, when and how?
Concentrate on those "tasks" whose success depends on you.
Delegate wherever possible. Make use of administrative, technical or specialist staff.
When delegating, do not abdicate tasks. If it is your "task" it is your final responsibility.
Agree a timeline for tasks which are being delegated, then let the other person get on with them.
Make sure the delegation instruction has been fully understood, and leave room for questions.
