Paperwork / Email : T.O.S.S. Paperwork / Email Trim – Remove yourself from excess email, mail, memo, newsletter, and magazine routings Outsource immediately – Throw it away, pass it on Save – File things you must save immediately. Regularly compress electronic files. 80% of what you keep, you’ll never use again! Start – Do it now. Set aside time daily to handle email and paperwork, then junk it, handle it, answer it, file it as you work through the pile To Do lists : To Do lists Remember - If you Fail to Plan, you Plan to Fail ! To Do lists : To Do lists A to-do list is a standard tool in time management. It usually is a flat list of tasks that a person needs to complete. To increase the efficiency of the ordinary to-do list, prioritize the tasks in four different categories: Important and Urgent Important but not Urgent Not Important but Urgent Not important and Not urgent Activity Quadrants – To Do Lists : Activity Quadrants – To Do Lists Activity Quadrants – Actual : 30% 50% 15% 5% Activity Quadrants – Actual Activity Quadrants – Desirable : 20% 5% 0% 75% Activity Quadrants – Desirable The Quadrants Explained : The Quadrants Explained Effective People – Stay out of Quadrants III & IV because they are not important They shrink Quadrant I down to size by spending more time in Quadrant II People become inefficient, when they focus only on I & III and not on II The Quadrants Explained : The Quadrants Explained People become non-performers, when they focus on III & IV Working on Quadrant II is the heart of personal time management Being high impact activities, when done regularly would make a tremendous difference in our lives Initially, the time for quadrant II activity must come from Quadrants III & IV Improving Yourself : Do a SWOT analysis of yourself (with no inhibitions) Identify your : S – Strength W– Weakness O – Opportunity T – Threats Improving Yourself Slide 41: How do you do a SWOT of yourself? Strengths: What advantages do you have ? What do you do well ? What relevant resources do you have access to ? What do other people see as your strengths ? Slide 42: Weaknesses: What could you improve ? What do you do badly ? What should you avoid ? Are you fully qualified for the future opportunities ? Slide 43: Opportunities: Where are the good opportunities available to you ? What are the interesting trends that you are aware of ? What is your special talent that can get you ahead ? What are you really good at ? Slide 44: Threats: What obstacles do you face? Are the required specifications for your job changing? Is changing technology threatening your position? Slide 45: Could any of your weaknesses seriously threaten your job? Is there any threat to you which will force you not to take the “Opportunity” when it comes along? Carrying out a personal SWOT Analysis is an important step in finding life and career direction ! Getting SMART with Time : Chalk out a strategy to overcome your W’s and T’s Constantly work towards improvement. It has to be a daily affair, not to be accumulated for a week and done at the end of the week Put little bit of time apart EVERYDAY for this and you will see the improvement for yourself very fast Getting SMART with Time Finding That Extra Hour : Early or Late – Get up an hour earlier than usual and / or Go to sleep an hour later than usual. Difficult task, but necessary in today’s world Delegate & Distribute – Another way of gaining little extra time – easier said than done – but needs to be done ruthlessly Finding That Extra Hour Slide 48: Take Quick Decisions – Do not keep pondering over an issue. A timely decision, even if it is not the best one, would provide far better output than a Wonderful decision taken after the time is past ! Is it my problem ? – Most of us have this habit of getting into matters that do not concern us – mostly because we do not know how to say NO politely. Remember, solving the whole world’s problems is not your job and you will never be able to do it Slide 49: You can’t win it all – Everyday we undergo continuous struggle and competition. We can’t win all the time Learn to accept failures with modesty and grace No battle is the last battle and No opportunity is the last opportunity The Biggest Mistake : The Biggest Mistake The Biggest Mistake people can make is try to use each second fully, which is impossible. So, “Don’t try to achieve every goal you want to achieve. Achieve only the goals you need and stay focused on the important things in life.” Slide 51: And don’t forget to make time for your long-term Goals ! “Time = Life, Therefore, waste your time and waste your life, or master your time and master your life.” - Alan Lakein Slide 52: THANK YOU ….
