Failure of time management last week

Failure of time management last week

I have to admit my failure for time management last week, I submitted PMA one hour before the deadline. I planned to finish it on Friday, but actually I only did 30% at that time. I try to find the reason why I am always late, because it is hard for me to concentrate on the current task.

I have this problem after I graduated from university, since I did not have much stress and workload at the beginning, so I was used to surf internet for no purpose.

Last week Paul taught me how to manage my time and persuaded me insist this method for at least 6weeks. Although I failed last week, I found something is really useful. Prioritising week tasks and day tasks.

Every day I plan the most important thing should be done first, and arrange the second thing with a small task which is still important but can be finished in one hour. If I feel tired or cannot concentrate on current important task, I move to the second one. After I finish the second one, I feel successful and have already concentrated on work, and then move on to vital but the difficult task.

Even if I cannot finish planed work, I can at least guarantee the working hours is efficient.

  1. Noah, thats absolutely true..u need to find out the tasks which needs to be completed, priortise them, plan them ans start acting on them. and then at the same time keep an eye on time that as u had decided are they going accordingly or not. Sometimes u will find they dont due to various factors internally and externally that time u need to repriortise things. So basically its a feedback cycle kind of a thing which we learned from Deming or what is called as Project Planning and management.

    But it is necessary to atleast plan and act as many tasks finishes before the decided time and it compensates the other task which are taking more time.

  2. Also a phrase for yoy brother..

    Don’t let the fear of the time it will take to accomplish something stand in the way of your doing it. The time will pass anyway; we might just as well put that passing time to the best possible use.”
