  3. 3. Time + Attention Management “Time management” is really a misnomer – the challenge is not to manage time, but manage ourselves. The key is not to prioritize what’s on your schedule, but to schedule your priorities.” Stephen Covey
  4. 4. So, what does Time + Attention Management mean to you? Time can’t be managed…It just is. So, time management is really about managing our attention. Time + Attention Management
  5. 5. Staying focused on the task at hand is more difficult than ever. There are… • Open Workspaces • Tons of Media Sources vying for our attention • Individuals acting in crisis mode all the time Time + Attention Management What do you think is the #1 enemy of Attention Management? Distractions
  6. 6. What are some categories of Distractions? • Self • People • Organizational Time + Attention Management Some distractions are ok/good, but need to be managed All distractions should fall into Q2/Q1 of the matrix; and if not, re-evaluate
  7. 7.  Groups of 3:  a distractor  an employee trying to work or have a conversation  an observer/other conversationalist Role Play Distractions The employee’s goal is to try and tactfully diffuse the distraction
  8. 8. Stephen Covey’s book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, provide us with the Time Management Matrix. It will help us prioritize and determine which activities best warrant our attention and resources… The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People It provides the judgment as to whether activities are URGENT, IMPORTANT, BOTH or NEITHER. This is crucial for good time management.
  9. 9. Urgent Not Urgent Important Not Important Q-1 Q-2 Q-3 Q-4 Time Management Matrix
  10. 10. Time Management Matrix Urgent + Important: These are real major emergencies and crisis issues, significant demands for information from superiors or customers, project work with imminent deadlines, meetings and appointments, reports and other submissions, staff issues or needs, problem resolution, fire-fighting fixes, and serious urgent complaints.
  11. 11. Time Management Matrix Urgent + Important: DO NOW (Vying for immediate attention and critical to your success and/or of the organization.) What to do: • Subject to confirming the importance of these tasks, do this task now… • Prioritize tasks according to their relative urgency • If 2 or more tasks are equally urgent, ask what the needed requirements are from the person requesting the task • Look for ways to break the task down to simplify • Plan this task in quadrant 2 for next time
  12. 12. Time Management Matrix Not Urgent, but Important: Activities that fall into this quadrant include: planning an preparation; project planning and scheduling; research and investigation; networking, relationship building, thinking and creating; modelling, designing, and testing; systems and process development; anticipative, preventative activities or communication.
  13. 13. Time Management Matrix Not Urgent, but Important: PLAN TO DO These tasks are most important yet neglected: • Plan time-slots for doing these • Break big tasks down to separate logical stages • Use project management tools and methods • Inform other people of your planned time-slots and schedules: Having a visual schedule is key. (not “in your face” but critical to your success and/or that of your organization)
  14. 14. Time Management Matrix Urgent, but not Important This quadrant houses trivial and “off-loaded” requests from others, apparent emergencies, ad-hoc interruptions, misunderstandings appearing as complaints, irrelevant distractions, pointless routines or activities, dealing with accumulated unresolved trivia, duplicated effort, unnecessary double-checking, and the boss’s whims or tantrums. Scrutinize these demands and help originators, even your boss, to re-assess the real importance of these tasks.
  15. 15. Time Management Matrix Urgent, but not Important: REJECT (Diplomatically) These tasks are tricky: • Practice and develop your ability to explain why you can’t • Where possible, reject and avoid these tasks immediately • Look for causes of repeating demands, so you can stop it • Educate and train others to manage their own time and priorities, so you don’t end up getting involved • Question old policies and assumptions to see if they still are valid (“in your face” – but not important to your success and/or that of the organization.)
  16. 16. Time Management Matrix Neither Urgent nor Important: Finally, Q4 contains the many unnecessary and unchallenged routines, “comfort” activities; computer games, net surfing, excessive breaks, chatting and gossip (face to face and phone); social and domestic communications; silly emails and text messages; daydreaming and doodling; interrupting others; tidying, changing screen savers, internet and YouTube surfing; drink and drug abuse; aimless travel and driving.
  17. 17. Time Management Matrix Neither Urgent nor Important: RESIST + CEASE These tasks are unnecessary + are usually unchallenged: • These activities have no positive outcomes • Often they may be stress related, so find the root cause • Have a clear structure or schedule of tasks for each day in quadrant 2 to remove the temptation • These activities are not tasks and provide a refuge from the effort of discipline (the real time wasters – not vying for immediate attention and not important to success)
  18. 18. Urgent Not Urgent Important Not Important Q-1 Q-2 Q-3 Q-4 Time Management Matrix
  19. 19. Q-1 Q-2 Q-3 Q-4 Time Management Matrix Now it’s time to build your own Time Management Matrix based on an average work day here at KIK. Take the tasks and prioritize them in the correct quadrants:  Daily Tasks…  Typical fire-fighting…  Typical interruptions…  Unexpected items…  Leadership needs…  Direct Boss needs… Do Now. Plan to Do. Reject (nicely). Resist + Cease.
  20. 20. Proactive vs Reactive Attention Management Being Proactive means thinking ahead and planning how to head off or deal with problems before they arise Being Reactive means that you respond to problems after they occur Reactive items live in Q-1 Proactive items live in You should spend more time in Q2 instead of Q1…
  21. 21. Attention Management What does Attention Management to you? Attention management increases the ability to focus attention. Four areas of Attention  Intentional: plan strategically and prioritize  Responsive: responds and puts out fires  Interrupted: too much time answering messages and doing non-valued added work  Unproductive: waste time at work…Facebook, chatting a lot… Attention Management

Attention Management “Eat that Frog*” is a metaphor for tackling the most challenging task of your day – the one you are most likely to procrastinate on, but also probably the one that can have the greatest positive impact *Adapted from the book, Eat That Frog! 21 Great Ways to Stop Procrastinating and Get more Done in Less Time – Brian Tracy

Notes de l'éditeur

  • So, let’s get to learnin’!
  • Divide group into groups of 3. There will be a distractor, an employee trying to work or have a conversation, and an observer/conversationalist.
  • Urgent + Important = Q1 = Urgent
    Not Urgent + Important = Q2 = Important
    Urgent + Not Important = Q3 = Both
    Not Urgent + Not Important = Q4 = Neither
  • Every task or goal that you have should fall into one of these quadrants. Writing them down and prioritizing will not only help you manage your time, but more importantly manages your attention to get things done.

    Urgent + Important = Q1 =Urgent
    Not Urgent + Important = Q2 = Important
    Urgent + Not Important = Q3 = Both
    Not Urgent + Not Important = Q4 = Neither
  • Keep this open discussion for the 20-25 minute activity. Flip chart it out. Have 30 daily tasks that need to be organized. Have the 30 tasks listed, and a large Time Management Matrix to write on. Break the group into 4 separate groups. Allow them time for open discussion to determine what task goes where. Recap to see if there are any differences and discuss them.
