Self Management –The new cliche

Okay Because I have alot of other commitments I will only spend a little time on this one. Today in class Paul shared with us on the topic Time Management, Sorry I meant Self Management. Well its still sounds new to me but I agree its a better way to look at time.
He said "we can not manage time but we can learn to manage ourselves around time -around the clock" (paraphrased) Using the Time management matrix by Stephen Covey, describing in details each quadrants and their results just helped me to see the true possiblities of self managements.
I would have loved to give a detailed description of these quadrants but time won't allow me as I am only expected to spend 3 hours on blogging weekly....hehehe I hope I got that right. But here's a link at the foot of the note I found that would help capture further what I learnt today should you be asking questions in your mind -so what did the quadrants say?
So basically, for me the self management topic today was just reminding me of the purpose for which I am here in school for, setting priorities right, not all urgent stuffs are imporatant and vice versa. So its like applying a continous filter to one's activities in my own understanding.
I will not forget to mention that after Paul spoke in details about how much time is expected of us to put into our mini projects per week and the blogging and the leverage we have as groups of 5 and 6...I was like woooow!!!! then why have been sooo depressed with high workloads? 28hrs/wk. 5hrs/ mini project. But offcourse we all know sometimes we might not be able to get the right information on time we cannot all say that 5 hrs is 5hrs and would be effective 5hrs but that now becomes a case of research methodologies and speed.
So I as continue the MBE journey help me Lord!
