For the next few blogs, I will be revisiting a few of my favourite ‘corporate’ themed blogs. I’ve always felt how we develop our habits in the workplace is just as important as communicating on a stage, at a podium or during every day conversation. So enjoy this five-part series of corporate communications revisited!
Does your life feel scattered, chaotic, ineffective?
Do you make endless to-do lists only to ignore them?
Are the goals you make impossible to achieve?
Do you spend your day in a frenzy and feel like you haven’t accomplished much?
These are all symptoms of poor time management.
You are creating a poor return on investment for yourself, your business or organization by choosing to adopt inferior time management habits and poorly prioritize what’s important. Think about all the time spent catching up on administrative tasks due to poor organization, hours spent sorting through email or mornings wasted in unproductive meetings.
Instead of feeling stuck with inefficient routines and habits why don’t we look at some reasons why you should make a change:
- Those who do not use time efficiently feel overworked, unsatisfied and stressed.
- Effective planning and time management gets a workload under control, supports a healthy work team and helps achieve high standards.
- The stress from a poorly managed schedule effects physical, emotional and mental health.
- Those who implement effective time management habits are better at completing tasks and decision-making.
- An hour of planning saves up to three or four hours executing.
