Managing Myself and the Others

Follow-up to Time Managment and Organizing yourself from Sam's blog

                                                                             Taking-Up Resopnsibility

Managing my time might have been the most important skill I developed this year. Ironically enogh I was not even aware of it as a quintessential skill. As a follow up action plan of the points I learnt in the workshop, I contrived the following steps:

1- I set myself Distant goals and Proximal goals in the process of achieveing my objectives because I realised that the short-term ones will lead to the long-term goals.

2-In the process of achieving my goals, I faced many obstacles and stumbling blocks that obliged me to employ different strategies and techniques at different levels of the process.

3- As regards reflection, I could compare my current level with the one when I first started learning and could notice the progress I am making. This progress gave me confidence and motivation to proceed.

4-I kept on a system of self-rewarding at the end of each day to give me the impetus to work hard while realising that I will be enjoying myself at the end of the day.

5-Alternating between different asks helped me set the pace of my own learning and refresh my personality every once and a while.

6-All of this inspired me to take an optional module in my degree in Managament and Leadership that broadened my horizons and understanding of a new untapped area for me.

    I am pleased that through the workshop and the reflection process you have identified this as a skill area for you to develop.

    Thank you for sharing your areas of focus and your reflection on these. It will be interesting to hear of the stumbling blocks that you encountered in setting your goals. I like the way that you have really thought about what this area means to you in terms of the reward system you have developed and how you have decided to consider the pace at which you work.

    I look forward to your updates.
