Time Management

Posted by phillippeng on October 3, 2008

This afternoon I attended the internal training session “Time Management Essentials” instructed by Susan Connors. Susan provided lots of tips and principles of managing times. It’s an informative session. Everybody needs to learn how to manage their time so that they can be more productive.

Time management is not about how much we know about time management, but about how much we put into action. In another word, it’s not about science but behaviour.

Here are some tips/views shared:

1. Manage your email at once. Don’t check your email every 3 to 5 minutes. However, we need to balance the client expectation and email management efficiency.

2. Retool the priority system. If we have the following labels:
Urgent and goal-related = A
Goal-related but not urgent = B
Urgent but not goal-related = C
we need to have have at least one “B” priority in our to-do list every day.

3. Use the primary energy time for priority tasks.
