Transcript of TIME MANAGEMENT
Work more when you're in the zone...
Have your to-do-list
Have a snack & water nearby
Cozy chair to work in
Phone, TV, computer, etc
Get the small tasks out of the way first & GET THINGS DONE.
...relax when you're not.
Effective TIME MANAGEMENT
Take a break
Read a book
Take a nap

of the week to
get things done
Categorize & Prioritise
Know your body
ignoring the tasks, hoping it will go away
underestimating how long it will take
believing that minor delays won't hurt you
talk about how hard a job is rather than doing it
fear of failing
Expectations to do things perfectly are stifling
Categorize & Prioritize
Categorize tasks based on urgency and importance
Prioritize your taks in the order they need to be completed
"Break the unreasonable down into little reasonable chunks. A big goal is only achieved when every little thing that you do everyday, gets you closer to that goal."

No. 2 tasks never hold the same importance. Always prioritize.
Be really careful with to-do lists.....
Can't manager your time unless you know what you need to get done.
Mark tasks completed as you go.
Allocate time to each tasks.
End each day with a new task list for tomorrow (this will help you switch it off)
Set deadlines for everything.
Don't let tasks go on indefinitely.
Always know the one think you really
need get done during the day.
Only plan for 4-5 hours of real work per day.
Days always fill up.
Plan appointments and meetings early during the day.
Time leading up to an event is often wasted.
GET DONE TODAY!
TO DO LISTS:
"The secret of getting ahead is getting started. The secret of getting started is breaking your complex overwhelming tasks into smaller manageable tasks, and then starting on the first one."
Jot down every event that will occur in the future.
Include "life" events
Get a reminder app for everything....do not trust your own brain for your memeory.
Know Your Body
Break tasks into hour increments. Long tasks are hard to get into; feels like all needs to get done
Complete the most important tasks first.
Anything that can be dealt with quickly & simply - do it straight away.
Set goals - what needs to be completed today, tomorrow, etc.
Focus on one task at a time
Worry about the size of your tasks will not make your lists any smaller
Allocate Time to Tasks
Break tasks into hour increments.
Treat yourself to a task you enjoy if you get it done.
We're always more focused and productive with limited time.
Long tasks are hard to get into; feels like it all needs to get done
You deserve it.
When are you at your best? Evaluate your energy....
Schedule times to do your more challenging brain work when you're going to be at your best.
Set up a work routine and stick to it. Your body will adapt.
Friends, colleagues, family
"Write down anything that distracts you - google searches, random thoughts, new ideas, whatever. The point is, if you write them down, they'll stop bubbling up when your in the zone."
-Steven Corona, Twitpic
Take it or leave it.
"Separate thinking and execution to execute faster and think better."
- Sol Tanguay, Imarklab
"Yesterday's home runs don't win today's games."
Turn the page on yesterday.
Only ever think about today and tomorrow.
More work hours doesn't mean more productivity. Use constraints as opportunities.
