Branson’s Rules : Ten rules on becoming a LeaderDecember 15, 2015
Ever wanted to be spot on with your timing at work?
Every one of us at some stage of our life took a time management class, studied a book or just searched the internet for some time managing tips. Maybe even downloaded a “Daily routine app” or created a “Daily routine chart”. But some part of you still thinks that you are running late on time. Your apps and training don’t seem to work.Why ? the reason is simple, they measure clock time instead of real time. And we live in the “Real world” not the” Clock world”.
Manage your time with these ten steps at work as said on the Entrepreneur.
- Carry a schedule and record all your thoughts, conversations and activities for a week. This will help you understand how much you can get done during the course of a day and where your precious moments are going.
- Any activity or conversation that’s important to your success should have a time assigned to it. To-do lists get longer and longer to the point where they’re unworkable. Appointment books work.
- Plan to spend at least 50 percent of your time engaged in the thoughts, activities and conversations that produce most of your results.
- Schedule time for interruptions. Plan time to be pulled away from what you’re doing.
- Take the first 30 minutes of every day to plan your day. Don’t start your day until you complete your time plan.
- Take five minutes before every call and task to decide what result you want to attain. This will help you know what success looks like before you start.
- Put up a “Do not disturb” sign when you absolutely have to get work done.
- Practice not answering the phone just because it’s ringing and e-mails just because they show up. Disconnect instant messaging.
- Block out other distractions like Facebook and other forms of social media unless you use these tools to generate business.
- Remember that it’s impossible to get everything done. Also, remember that odds are good that 20 percent of your thoughts, conversations and activities produce 80 percent of your results.
