27 Exit Ticket What are some things that you need to plan time for in your calendar for your Senior Portfolio? When will you plan time to complete these activities?

28 Putting it All Together Mackenzie, Start with long-range goals and objectives. 2.Relate the days activities to those goals. 3.Assign priorities to the days tasks according to their contribution to your overall goals. 4.Schedule tasks according to priority and to the degree of concentration required. 5.Stay on track, using the plan to guide you through crises and interruptions.

29 Time Wasters Leaving tasks unfinished Inadequate staff Socializing Confused responsibility or authority Poor communication Inadequate controls and progress reports Incomplete information Travel

30 Time Wasters Management by crisis Telephone interruptions Inadequate planning Drop-in visitors Ineffective delegation Personal disorganization Lack of self- discipline Inability to say no Procrastination Meetings Paperwork

31 Just say no Why is it so hard? Most of us have been taught that no is disrespectful and even insulting. We tend to value other peoples time more highly than our own. We have a need to cooperate and a desire to be liked. There are often unconscious concerns of being thought of as lazy or selfish.

32 Just say no How do you say it? I cant do it right now, but I can fit it in later. I am not the best qualified person for that job, how about asking… I just dont have any room in my schedule for the next few weeks. I cant focus on that right now.

33 Just say no How do you say it? I have made a commitment to complete my current project/task ahead of any other. Normally I would say yes, but Ive had a few things come up unexpectedly and I have to deal with those first. I would rather say no than end up doing a second rate job for you.

34 Procrastination Theres a recognizable pattern to procrastination. There are ways to stop: 1. 1.Set meaningful goals Dont believe in magic Make good choices Deal with the unpleasant. Do it. Dont do it yet. Ditch it. Delegate it. Vacarro, 1999

35 Categories of Time Wasters The Crisis Manager The Undisciplined Procrastinator The Easily Distracted The Perfectionist Resitern The Systematically Inefficient The Non-Communicator The Impulsive Wanderer

36 Getting Started 1.Begin each week by using your time management device to examine your task list/schedule and plan the coming week. Prioritize your tasks! 2.Carry your planning device with you and start each day by checking your task list and your schedule for the next 3 days. 3.Mark recurrent dates in your planner for the entire year.

37 Getting Started 4.Use retrograde planning to assure that you dont forget special projects or deadlines. Projects should be broken into components and retrograde planning should be done from the due date. 5.What is the best use of my time right now? 6.Take advantage of small bites of time. 7.Plan activities according to your physiology. 8.Build in time for exercise.
