Time management most often begins with setting goals.These goals are recorded and may be broken down into a project, an action plan, or a simple task list.Activities are then rated based on urgency and importance, priorities assigned, and deadlines set.This process results in a plan with a task list or calendar of activities.This entire process is supported by a skill set that should include personal motivation, delegation skills, organization tools, and crisis management.We’ll cover all this and more during this workshop.

The SMART Way
SMART is a convenient acronym for the set of criteria that a goal must have in order for it to be realized by the goalachiever.
Prioritizing Your Goal :-
Achieving challenging goals requires a lot of mental energy.
- Invest your mental focus on one goal, the most important goal right now.
- Choose a goal that will have the greatest impact on your life compared to how long it will take to achieve.
- A large part of goal setting is not just identifying what you want, but also identifying what you must give up in your life in order to get it.
- Emotionalizing and visualizing your goal will help you create the desire to materialize it into your life.
- One of the best visualization tools is a vision board.
- Create a list of the benefits you will see when you achieve your goal and concentrate on how that will make you feel.
The 80/20 Rule :-
The 80/20 rule, also known as Pareto’s Principle, states that 80% of your results come from only 20% of your actions.
For most people, it really comes down to analyzing what you are spending your time on.
Are you focusing in on the 20% of activities that produce 80% of the results in your life?
READY AIM FIRE!!! :-
Ready! Do not over-plan each of your actions. By the time you fire, the target may have moved. •
Aim! Make new plans based on new information. Readjust your aim based on where you hit the target. •
Fire! Remember the 80/20 rule and just take action. Even if you don’t hit the bull’s eye, you’ll probably still hit the target.
