Time Management – 3 tools

There are four key skills involved in time managment, or maybe more precisely self-management:

  • analysis – how do you currently spend your time?
  • planning – how should you be spending your time and what should you delegate?
  • delegation – ensuring others can take on some of your activities and complete them just as well as you can
  • self-discipline – ensuring you do today what you should do as dictated by quarterly and weekly plans

The three tools include a time audit, a skills matrix to identify opportunities to delegate, and a default diary.

Design your default diary to ensure you include IMPORTANT and URGENT activities at the right levels and your functional responsibilities are appropriately balanced across your role, including marketing, sales, operations, finance and team management.
