This Time Management Training course offers the user crucial information on how to best take control of their time - both in and out of a work setting.
Whether it is a blessing or a curse, we as human beings, have an awareness of time and we are obsessed with measuring it by clocks and watches and have time inbuilt into our devices such as our phones, cars, radios, computers and televisions. In spite of our obsession with time we are incredibly bad at using our time wisely. We can never escape time but we can learn to do more with it.
In this course, you'll learn how to plan where you want to be, effectively manage your time so you can focus on getting there, and see how you can avoid any distractions along the way.
We often feel that there are not enough hours in the day to get everything done. Creating time is what time management is all about. According to the pareto principle we spend 80% of our work day dealing with trivial tasks and only 20% on anything important. With effective time management you can turn that around creating more time for the things that matter.
This eLearning course is broken down into two simple sections:
The course covers three important steps of how to plan your time; setting goals, creating an activity log/to-do list and allocation.
Goals are crucial for effecting time management. They are what all your plans aim towards. This course will help you to think about your goals in all walks of your life and how to set them using the SMART principle: Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, and Time-Bound.
The second step of planning your time is creating an Activity Log which will help you keep track of where your time is going. It will help you identify at which times of day you are at your most productive so that you can plan to do your most important work when you're at your best.
Creating a To-do List is also a good way of planning your time. This contains all of the tasks you need to complete in the short-term in order for you to complete your medium- and long-term goals.
The section on allocation then shows you how to use the above tools to work out how best to allocate your time as you will have pinpointed when you're at your most productive to get the big tasks done and how to prioritise your To-do List.
Robert Burns says, “The best laid plans of mice and men often go awry.”
As we know in life things do not always go to plan and we cannot plan for the unexpected. However, we can learn techniques of how to minimise/avoid interruptions and distractions that steal our time away and how not to waste our time.
This section of the course covers what Time Bandits are which can be internal or external. Internal time bandits are things that we choose to interact with such as checking football scores or WhatsApp messages. This is our own choice of giving our time away. This section also includes a really insightful look into procrastination, why we do it and offers useful tips on how to avoid it.
External time bandits are things that steal your time, rather than you giving it away, which consists of things such as answering the phone, dealing with emails, reading post, people dropping by for a chat or asking you to take on extra work, or having to attend meetings.
The course runs through all different types of distractions and interruptions, both internal and external time bandits, and provides tips on how to handle all of these situations.
