Managing Your Time without setting priorities is like shooting randomly and calling whatever you hit is the target

While work has changed, the training on how to manage our time looks pretty much the same as it always has. Traditional time management teaches us to “start every morning making a list of things to do that day.” But once you check your email, that list is already woefully outdated.

Time management teaches “Prioritize A, B, C.” But these days, everything seems urgent and competes for the highest priority. Time management teaches us to “close the door” to get important work done, but it doesn’t address our spinning brains and the lure of the internet at our fingertips. Whatever “schedule” we came up with is typically out the window by 8:01 AM.

The problem’s not just that we’re getting distracted from work; it’s that we’re getting distracted from important work by other work. How many times have you sat down to do more thoughtful, in-depth tasks, only to be lured away by incoming emails from clients or colleagues?

We have to work differently now to be effective. This training focuses on productivity skills that empower employees to overcome these new challenges. It has  three components:

  • Clarity around role priorities.
  • Attention management skills.
  • A comprehensive workflow management system.
