SOME TIME MANAGEMENT TIPS

I believe the key to effective time management is having
a PLAN. Once you have done that, communicate your plans
to others involved in your life (those nearest and dearest
to you), or those people working with you in business.

SOME HINTS IN TIME MANAGEMENT:

1. Prioritise your goals. Set up the following:

* A weekly plan: Plan for a week at a time.

* A 'don't forget' list.

* A 'what now' list.

2. Focus on the important things 'the things that really
matter to you.

3. Throw out irrelevant bits of paper.

4. No matter what pressure you are under, try to control
your stress level at all times.

5. Control interruptions (even a 'closed door' policy is not
a bad thing).

6. Don't procrastinate.

7. Prepare a reminder list of essential details.

8. Plan to get the routine tasks out of the way as quickly
as possible.

9. Develop routines. Ask yourself this question: can any
(procedures) be eliminated or speeded up?

10. Focus on one task at a time.

N.B:

10. Pat yourself on the back each day by reviewing your
accomplishments.

11. Self monitor and self evaluate your progress on the
way to your goals.

12. Set and keep deadlines for yourself and others (Don't
"interrupt" yourself).

13. Learn to say "no" to others' demands.

14. Slow down for success.

15. Distinguish the really urgent from the seemingly urgent.
Sort out low priority work. Put it aside for later or eliminate
it totally.

16. Encourage others to get to the point on the telephone
or at meetings. Without being too rude, of course!

Waffle less (I love 'em), yourself!

17. Respond less formally, but with more speed, eg. a
hand-written compliments slip rather than a typed letter.

18. Make time for yourself to relax; because this recharges
the batteries.

19. Delegate for success. Ask yourself the question:
Is this only something I can do?
If not, to whom can the work be appropriately assigned?
Is this person prepared now, or does he/she need further
instruction to complete the task efficiently?

20. Provide clear and realistic expectations. Keep only the
paper you need on your desk (if you are lucky enough to
have a desk, that is!). Clear out irrevelant files. A tidy mind
is an effective mind, but tidy desks are really rarely creative.
Thank goodness I have an excuse then!

21. Communicate clearly to your sub-ordinates and co-workers.
Hard if you are at the bottom of the barrel, like me! Get
messages across clearly the first time.

22. Set aside time to mentally regroup, to think and to plan.
Very important. Review progress regularly to see which plans
are working and which ones aren't. Work with individual
players and set aside time for individuals. Remember everyone
is a unique individual with their own needs.

22. Have direction. Believe in yourself and what you are trying
to accomplish. Review your skills periodically and pat yourself on
the back with your progress to date.

Finally (and most importantly),

23. Take care of yourself and
BE HAPPY.

"I want to just say 'WOW!' This collection is probably the best money I ever spent! I've already received many times over in personal enrichment after just 9 days. I've had a past metaphysical background, but even newcomers to this material will really benefit. Thanks again." ~ J.S. (Pennsylvania, USA)
"The collection is everything which you promised. And more! A superb contribution to the good of the world. Many thanks indeed." ~ R.P. (Georgia, USA)
"Just a short note of thanks for the library. I've only had membership for several days now but I already feel this is perhaps the most interesting compilation I have yet seen. Worth far more than the price of admission. The browser linked structure works well and makes it easy to manage such a large storehouse of information. It is rarely that I find something I like as much as this or that I feel strongly enough to write a note like this." ~ P.W. (Minnesota, USA)
