Do you ever find yourself wishing you had more time so that you could get more accomplished in a day or a week or a month?
Managing time is a true skill that requires practice and can be learned!
There number of potential distractions that can get you off track is growing daily. If it’s not the 1000’s of emails you have to manage, then there are those continuous fires which need to be put out on a moment-by-moment basis.
Learning how to prioritise your activities is essential to better managing your time.
Most of us are easily drawn into situations that seem to require our immediate attention, but are really just other people inferring their immediate situations onto us.
Knowing how to assess whether a situation or problem requires your instant attention, or can either be scheduled or delegated to someone else, is part of the time-management process.
A good way to manage your time is to start by having a schedule.
Now I’m the first one to raise my hand and admit more often than not the schedule goes “out the window” as soon as something “more important” comes up.
But you also have to honest with yourself and admit when you’re simply chasing the next opportunity because you don’t want to do those things on your schedule.
I find it amazing when students tell me they don’t have the time for “xyz task”, but they will spend 45 minutes crafting an email to someone who sits right next to them.
Being a good communicator is a different skill altogether, but precise verbal communication can help you save time!
Learning new skills should be an absolute requirement for any professional.
