  • 10 Strategies for Better Time Management Sue W. Chapman Michael Rupured (2008)
  • 1. Know How You Spend Your Time Analyze where most of your time is devoted job, family, personal, recreation, etc.
  • DAILY TIME LOG Duration At Least One Week The recommended length of time you should keep a time log is a minimum of one week.
  • 2. Set Priorities Managing your time effectively requires a distinction between what is important and what is urgent (MacKenzie, 1990).
  • Covey Time Management Grid
  • The ABC rank order method involves assigning the letters A, B, or C to various tasks: A = highest priority activities (must do immediately) A = highest priority activities (must do immediately) B = second-priority activities (not immediately, but you should do soon) C = low-priority tasks or things you would like to do (can wait to do)
  • First Things First (from Virginia Tech division of student affairs) 1. Each night write on a 3x5 card the 6 most important tasks you have to do tomorrow. 2. Number them in the order of importance. 3. First thing in the morning look at the task listed as most important and start working on it until it is finished. Then tackle item 2 the same way, item 3 and so forth until your work or school day are completed. 4. Dont be worried if you only complete 2 or 3 items. Youve completed the most important tasks and any other method wouldnt have given you more time to work on the rest of the list. 5. Each night write a new 3x5 card for the next day.
  • 3. Use a Planning Tool Time management experts recommend using a personal planning tool to improve your productivity.
  • Suggestions for Using a Personal Digital Assistant (PDA) for Time Management Assign a different color for each calendar item Use the task application feature to manage projects. Use the repeat function for recurring dates Investigate additional software and hardware that is compatible with your PDA (Beckwith, 2006). Place a notebook the size of your PDA in your carrying case for writing down to dos if you have difficulty recording them with your PDAs task application feature (Morgenstern, 2004).
  • 4. Get Organized Implement a system that allows you to handle information only once.
  • 5. Schedule Your Time Appropriately Block out time for your high priority activities first and protect that time from interruptions.
  • 6. Delegate: Get Help from Others Delegation begins by identifying tasks that others can do and selecting the appropriate person(s) to do them.
  • 7. Stop Procrastinating You may be putting off tasks for a variety of reasons. Perhaps the task seems overwhelming or unpleasant.
  • Discipline yourself! STOP PROCASTINATION, VINCE!
  • 8. Manage External Time Wasters Your time may be impacted by external factors imposed by other people and things.
  • Telephone Use voice mail and set aside time to return calls. Avoid small talk. Stay focused on the reason for the call. Stand up while you talk on the phone. You are more likely to keep the conversation brief. Take any necessary action immediately following the call. Set aside times of the day for receiving calls and let others know when you are available. Keep phone numbers readily available near the telephone.
  • Unexpected Visitors Establish blocks of time when you are available for visits. Tell the visitor politely that you cannot meet with them at this time and schedule the visit for a more convenient time. Set a mutually agreeable time limit for the visit. When someone comes to the door, stand up and have your meeting standing.
  • Meetings Know the purpose of the meeting in advance. Arrive on time. Start and end the meeting on time. Prepare agenda and stick to them. Use timed agenda, if necessary. Dont schedule meetings unless they are necessary and have a specific purpose or agenda.
  • Mail and E-mail Set aside a specific time to view and respond to your mail and e-mail, but dont let it accumulate to the point that it becomes overwhelming to sort. Turn off instant messaging features on e-mail. Handle each item only once, if possible. Practice the options for dealing with clutter listed earlier. Sort mail near a garbage can and delete junk e-mail immediately from your electronic mailbox. Answer written messages by responding on the margins or bottom of the page.
