14/10/2015 – Time Management
The schedule for today involved a lecture on time management centred on the question of "Do we manage time or manage ourselves?" There was an interactive engagement involving depicting our individual time schedules to then create a solution for becoming effective time leaders. Following this activity, we delved into the different generations of time management which orientated around having time management focused on goals or identifying roles followed by action.
Previous to the lecture, I had some idea as to how to be effective in time management but always lacked the tools to really take my time management to a higher effectiveness. Being able to balance all the work required this year was a concern of mine. Previous to the masters, I had completed an undergraduate so the step up was an unknown variable. I could speculate the workload but until I was immersed into the programme, I feel I would not have a full image.. However having understood how to control my time and not let time control me, I feel more confident I will be able to work effectively this year.
