Tips on using your Wall Planner
- Get it up on the wall somewhere you will see it every day.
- Circle all the National Days and Public Holidays that are relevant to you and your business, for most sectors there are usually one, two or three obviously relevant days, but there are usually another handful of days which are important.
- Look ahead at the events coming up and decide which ones you are going to do, then circle the dates and the deadlines.
- You should be constantly developing and updating your Wall Planner as time goes by, adding in new events and activities which are relevant to you.
“Time management” is the process of organizing and planning how to divide your time between specific activities. Good time management enables you to work smarter – not harder – so that you get more done in less time, even when time is tight and pressures are high. Failing to manage your time damages your effectiveness and causes stress.
It seems that there is never enough time in the day. But, since we all get the same 24 hours, why is it that some people achieve so much more with their time than others? The answer lies in good time management.
The highest achievers manage their time exceptionally well. By using the time-management techniques in this section, you can improve your ability to function more effectively – even when time is tight and pressures are high.
Good time management requires an important shift in focus from activities to results: being busy isn’t the same as being effective. (Ironically, the opposite is often closer to the truth.)
Spending your day in a frenzy of activity often achieves less, because you’re dividing your attention between so many different tasks. Good time management lets you work smarter – not harder – so you get more done in less time.
“Time management” refers to the way that you organize and plan how long you spend on specific activities.
