The time that we have – this is money that we have not. We all to varying degrees, are faced with a shortage of time. And, of course, trying to solve it in different ways. We all have good or bad experience management their time. All of us have read some books or listening to some records on the subject. I want to offer a fairly simple but very effective method of managing your time. For starters, you need to identify Where does your time and how you can optimize their investment of time.
I suggest you do your timing rabochego day. Fill out the first week of the cell works, you are doing at any given time. s. Use table. For assistance, try visiting Richard Blumenthal. And in the morning, start to fix it all, what do you do during the day. Refer to the table every half-hour and fix all the cases up to 5-10 minutes. The entries will look something like this: 07.00-08.00 08.00-09.00 09.00-10.00 Monday Check Mail – 15 minutes. Marked the arrival of a job in magazine 10 minutes.
I drank coffee. I read the magazine, for 10 minutes. Talked with colleagues about how to spent weekend, 25 minutes. 10.00-11.00 specified schedule for a day or 20 minutes. Read the news on the company website – 30 minutes. Prepare for the project-10 minutes. 11.00-12.00 hold meetings to discuss the project – 1 hour. 1200-1300 shall meet, discuss project-1 hour 10 minutes. I drank coffee – 20 minutes. Appointed principal of the meeting on the project-30 minutes. 13.00-14.00 printed materials on the project-40 minutes. 14.00-15.00 15.00-16.00 16.00-17.00 send short messages in Friendster – 40 min. 17.00-18.00 19.00-20.00 20.00-21.00 21.00-22.00 22.00-23.00 23.00-24.00 looked TV And so all the days of the week: Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday Saturday Voskrsene Next you need to analyze in the following way: Look at the resulting table at the end of the week. Highlight the red color of the case – “thieves of time”, and blue color – things that are relevant to long-term priority projects in education, work, personal development, etc., leave the other black, but “Good cause”. I am sure that you can perform this simple task! See how you painted your table! Just count how many times you have turned on each category. For example – on Monday: Red – 2 hours and 35 minutes, Blue – 3 hours 30 minutes. With this “timing”, by painting a table in different colors, you can get information on important issues sluduyuschim: How much time I spend on long-term priorities Projects (This is usually about 20-30% of the time, it is desirable to increase this percentage to 60-70%) How much time I spend on tasks that I delegate, but somehow I do myself? (Ideally this figure should not exceed 10%) What volichestvo time I spend on the “thieves of time”? (Score often up to 50%, and with the help of this task can be reduced to 10-20%) And now, finally: to translate knowledge into practice! Make a table on the following week, but already knowing and reducing the amount of time that you eat, “thieves of time.” For example, consider whether you can drink coffee for 20 minutes, and 15 or 10? Can you charge to print materials for your project, for example, office-managers of your company? Or may not be worth watching the 2-hour movie uninteresting? Look how many times did you “save” this way! Congratulations, you’ve taken the first step to ensure that effective manage your time!
