Final entry on Organising yourself and your time

Workshop Tutor: Lisa Faulkner

Time management is one of the key things in our modern day lives to avoid tension and fatigue. Throughout this workshop and the time since the workshop i have tried to stick to my action points and i have noticed that effective time management doesnt mean that you work for more number of hours, it just means that you focus on a set of predetermined tasks in order of priority and the tasks that matter and are urgent and that makes the difference. Managing time effeciently is the need of the hour.

Besides, I have even noticed that being 'Time bound' and approaching towards a set goal with a set amount of time for completion will help you feel more relaxed, focussed and in control. In time management skills its always the quality of work that matters, quantity is secondary!

The use of the GANTT chart for my daily chores has also made a huge difference because now i exactly know the amount of work to be done and the amount of time i need to dedicate to each task in order to complete my work on time.

Better identification of time stealers such as social networking and socialising a lot with friends has also made a diiference and to avoid wasting huge amounts of time i have a dedicated time frame set for social networking and socialising with my friends so that it doesnt interfere with my day to day important tasks and plans.

Finally, to conclude this workshop has been particularly helpful for me in managing my time and my schedules better and i have noticed the positive change in my attitude towards planning and prioritising things and organising and managing myself better.

Thank you and i highly appreciate all your efforts to create an awareness of how we can save a lot of our time by avoiding simple things and planning things well in advance!

    Hello Fahad,

    I’m really pleased to hear that you’ve found this workshop useful and that your commitment to working towards your action points has been helpful. You’ve now completed the blogging requirements for this workshop, but I hope that you continue to implement some of the techniques that you’ve been trialing over the last few weeks.

    All the best,
    Lisa
