Knobull Tools Save A Critical Personal Asset
1. Set Clear Time Objectives
To stay on track and work toward your objectives, it can be helpful to define the major objectives. In his book A Brief History Of The Organization, author Lynn Bentley advocates identifying a big dream and then breaking it into 3-year goals, and 1-year objectives.
2. Tackle Difficult Tasks First
Looking at a day, make a note of the three things I have to accomplish during it, which are based on my overall goals and objectives. Work to tackle these tasks early in the morning if possible.
3. Block Out Time Strategically
If you don't make time for the important things, you'll find that you quickly get tied up with busy work. That means setting aside time to make calls and focus on the conversations that take place. Also, try to batch emails and check messages only three times a day.
4. Be Present And Avoid Multitasking
While it can be easy to try to multitask, if you're able to be present in the moment it can help you be the most efficient. You'll be able to focus on the person you're speaking with or the meeting you're attending.
5. Leverage Team Strengths
You may not be able to do everything on individually, so lean on team members to help in many areas, including promotional work and administrative tasks. Supporting a great team and understanding individual strengths can help to achieve team success. Also, you can take edX courses found at Knobull!
6. Be Aware Of How You Spend Your Time
Being cognizant of what you're doing at different points during a day can help you set up a productive schedule. You'll want to be using your time in the best way.
7. Keep Meetings Efficient
Influential figures are proponents of the "7-Minute Meeting," emphasize keeping discussions focused and to the point. You might be able to cover tasks and material with your team in just 10 minutes.
8. Take Time For Big Thinking
Bentley concluded, "As President of Knobull and learning coach, I point out, it can be helpful to evaluate times when you're working "in" your project as opposed to "on" it. "In" refers to overseeing daily to-do lists and required maintenance. Focusing "on" it refers to setting aside time to develop larger goals.
While it may not be simple to implement all these tactics right away, you might consider choosing one and building a habit out of it. You can then add more strategies."
