017--Planning & Time Management
Probably one of the most important skills anyone in business can learn is planning and time management. There are only so many hours in a given day, and if you don’t use them efficiently and productively… you …can cost your company plenty. Planning and time management is the easiest thing to talk about and the hardest to do. Over time we develop unconscious work habits or patterns that we perform every single day without even thinking about it. Many of these rituals are time-wasters.
Changing old work patterns into productive new ones takes a conscious effort. You must perform a new ritual until it becomes habitual. Everything we learn is at first awkward, then mechanical, then automatic. The new changes are not habitual until they become part of your automatic nervous system and you do them without thinking. What compounds the problem is that no one likes change. The gist of this course is how to uncover and then transform old unproductive work habits into new, empowering rituals using tried and proven planning, NLP, and time management techniques.
The old saying, “Proper Planning Prevents Poor Performance” has never been truer than it is in this day and age. In today’s work environment of multi-tasking and “doing more with less” it is imperative that you plan your work, then work your plan. We discuss the importance of planning each day either the night before or first thing in the morning. We then demonstrate how to become as methodical, systematic, and organized as possible.
