The 80/20 rule is a theory that suggests that in any enterprise, 80 percent of the effort expended is nonessential, and 20 percent is essential.

How to Analyse Tasks

Accurately report the time spent on activities.
Refer to your task list for the tasks rated “C.”
Refer to your task list for the tasks rated “V.”
Underline the tasks that are rated neither “V” nor “C.”
Write an “E” next to those that you consider enjoyable.
Double-underline tasks that are neither “V,” “C,” nor “E.”

Creating an Action Plan
A Sample Action Plan

My goals:
Short-term: To sign up for an entry-level accounting class this month.
Long-term: To pursue a management position.
The time-management tools I will use:
1) Diplomatic refusals to turn down the extra activities I don’t want to take on.
2) Interruption control to save myself time during the workday.
3) Time’s monetary value to remind myself of the value of each working hour.
My written action plan:
I am going to incorporate diplomatic refusals so that I can turn down some of the activities I don’t want to take on and interruption control so that I can take control of my workday and avoid distractions from colleagues. I’ll also use time’s monetary value to remind myself of the value of my working hours.
My projection:
I think that by using these tools I can use my time better during the workday, become more effective on the job, and pursue the management position that I want. I think if I can take better control of my time I will become more productive. I need to utilize diplomatic refusals because one of my major time wasters is spending time chatting with friends during the workday.
My time frame:I plan to evaluate my action plan at the end of three week and see how I am doing with implementing my new time-management tools. I may need to tweak my efforts after three weeks if these tools aren’t effective enough.

How to Evaluate the Time-Management Process
Review your action plan.
Rate your effectiveness on a scale of 1 to 5
Identify the underlying reasons for these issues.
Review the time-management tools, techniques, and strategies that are available
