Join Dave Crenshaw for an in-depth discussion in this video Scheduling the unexpected, part of Balancing Work and Life.
If you've watched my Lynda course…on time management fundamentals,…you'll know that I teach that switches…are the Number 1 enemy to your productivity.…But what about unexpected switches,…the big ones; a tragedy, a loss of life,…even a positive switch such an upswing in business.…These major switches can really derail your schedule…and get you out of balance for a long period of time…if you let them.…Let me share with you a few things…that people I've worked with use to stay on top…of these big, major, unexpected switches.…
Number 1 is stop.…Take a moment and assess what's going on.…Allow yourself to process that this is a big event…and that it is going to have an impact on your life.…Number 2, open your calendar.…Get ready to take a look at that budget…that we've talked about and find more time…which leads to Step 3.…Budget the time.…This means give yourself extra space, extra room,…perhaps a few days that are empty…and don't have anything to do…but just allow yourself to catch up.…
Perhaps you need to drop one or two things…
