March Classes & Exercises
Time management is a fundamental skill that can empower the effectiveness of our daily operations tremendously. And it typically starts with getting organized. In our March classes and exercise workspace we focus on building and learning key ways to optimize time through organization. Let's Get Started.
We believe in the Calendar Effect. If it's not documented, it's not done and if it's not on the calendar it won't be cooked. So our classes and exercises will require you to have a calendar. If you are a creative like we are, you will choose one that sparks your creativity even further. In addition, if you don't want to use a writeable calendar it's ok to use an automated one. The tips below help elevate your organizational skills.
Automate. One of the goals of an effective leader is to produce high-level, quality work. In order to do this, you must stay on top of the small things, like your calendar. Automation will open up blocks of time that you can use to reset or use for unexpected events.
Schedule Everything. If it's not on the schedule, it can't happen.
Goal Set. Everyday should have a goal in mind. Set strategies to reach the goal and be intentional about closing it out.
Stay in Your Lane. You don't have to be an expert in everything. Everything does not need your response. This is important, because you will shine more in your own lane.
Decorate your workspace. Great leaders are comfortable in their own skin. When you surround yourself with personal items that empower you, you will motivate yourself when outside sources aren't doing it for your.
TAKE STOCK OF YOUR TIME
Communicate Effectively. Communication can make or break any relationship. At work it is important to repeat as often as necessary. Don't take anything or anyone for granted.
Never underestimated listening as the key ingredient to effective communication. LISTEN. It is a huge time-saver.
Assess Often. Time can't be bought or sold. Your assessment skills of people, protocols and practices will empower your calendar clarity more than anything. If it does not serve you well any longer, be gone with it.
Use Your Calendar & Write it Down. Write down the night before or use stickies to keep your anxiety level down and performance level high. If you have a big meeting, get everything in order the night before. Take the necessary steps to be prepared. Calendars are underrated.
Use a Timer. Don't allow meetings, conversations or uninvited guests to linger on. If it takes 15 minutes to get the point across, set a timer on your watch or phone. Start buzzing yourself to buzz out.
Intensity Time Blocks. Focus is important to time management. If the task requires you to have write a memo, take the time to focus and get it done. Then move on. A 20-minute intensity work block does wonders for management of the next big thing.
You can use some or all of these tips to empower your calendar and then optimize your organizational skills. Were just keeping you on your toes.
