Effective time management is an indispensable skill. In Time Management Fundamentals, Dave Crenshaw explains how to sensibly allocate time in order to achieve greater productivity. Dave details a set of principles for staying organized, consolidating the workspace, keeping a clear mind, and developing a time budget. Also covered are techniques for managing a full inbox, processing email, and reserving time for the most important activities. Exercise files accompany the course.
This training course was built in a way to help you get advice and tips that you can apply immediately, no matter which video you jump to in the training. However, in order to get the best result, I strongly recommend that you complete this training as a whole in one or two sittings. To accomplish this, let me make three recommendations to help you get the most from this course. Number one is schedule the time to complete it. In order to complete this entire course and complete the activities that I am going to give you, it'll probably take you several hours.
The second piece of advice I would give you is to complete the course while in your workspace. Your workspace is the laboratory for you to learn the science of time management. This training which you're about to go through is very hands on. So when you schedule that block of time I mentioned before, try to schedule it so you can be where you do your paperwork, where you answer your emails--your workspace. When I ask you to do something in this training, do it right then. Pause the video, do what I've asked you to do, and implement it.
By implementing immediately, you'll condition yourself. It's a bit like how athletes or professional musicians create muscle memory through repetition. I want you to create productivity memory. I want you to develop mental and physical conditioning so you automatically behave in the most productive manner with things like email, paperwork, incoming phone calls, and ideas that come into your head. If you take action immediately, that will go a long way toward building your muscle memory.
So in summary, number one, schedule the time to complete this course--preferably in one complete block. Number two, complete this course in your workspace. And number three, take action immediately and apply the principles I teach you. Do those three things and you'll get the maximum benefit from this course.
