Follow–up on Organising yourself and your time

Workshop Tutor: Lisa Faulkner

Heres a summary of how I've been getting on with my action points

  1. Doing my work on time before the deadlines

    The effective ways in which we can meet our deadlines are as follows:

    1. Staying organised and knowing and planning how to complete a set of things based on the deadlines and priorities.

    2. Avoiding Procrastination : We are all prey to feeling and thinking that there is enough time left to complete and assignment and inturn delay it further and further. The solution can be breaking up tasks into smaller sub tasks and finding a way of dealing with them effectively.

  2. Ranking tasks according to their priorities

    Ranking tasks according to their priorities is an effective way of dealing with them SMARTLY. Using soft deadlines for smaller tasks and sub tasks can be an effective way of dealing with tasks that are set to be completed first amongst others.

  3. Implementing all my tasks and events on a GANTT chart to simplify my work effectively

    I have started using the GANTT chart effectively and it is indeed very helpful in noting down tasks and the deadlines assigned to it. It helps us to breakdown the project into smaller tasks for efficient handling of the work.

  4. Identify my time stealers and learn better time management over them

    I have effectively tried and have overcome the effect of time stealers in my day to day life. Now i always plan my day in advance and ask myself "what is the best use of my time right now" and hence it helps me set priorities and focus my time and my energy on more significant tasks and now i do my best to complete one tasks completely before jumping on to another so that i dont waste my time coming back and spending significant time on the same tasks again. Moreover, i have started arranging set times of the day for friends, family and socialising.

    Hello Fahad,

    Thanks for your blog. It’s good to hear that you’ve started to tackle some of your time stealers and are finding the Gantt Chart useful. It would be interesting to hear how you’re finding the process of introducing these new techniques. Is it challenging to change your routines? Is the Gantt chart always helpful? Reflecting on the positive and negative aspects of new experiences is a good way to learn more from them – this is the purpose of the reflective blogging for the Warwick Skills Portfolio Award.

    I look forward to reading your next entry.
