Time to Think: Seize Control of Your Time and Your Life
The pace of business is accelerating and the boundaries of the working day are becoming increasingly blurred. Managing shorter response times and greater volume forces people to focus on the immediate and the urgent, often at the expense of proactive or longer-term issues. Being 'busy being busy' means that there is no time to question whether there is a good connection between activity and effectiveness or whether the outcomes achieved are contributing to the delivery of current goals and objectives. Time to Think puts an end to all that! Drawing on the author's leading-edge experience of helping business and sports people to achieve their own definition of success, Time to Think provides clarity amidst confusion. Packed with ideas and exercises, its incisive 'how-to' content provides a realistic approach that will bring about lasting change. Beginning with a self-scoring skills analysis and focusing on sound principles and good practice, Time to Think creates the opportunity to review existing processes, tools and time utilisation. It addresses prioritisation by combining the three key steps of goal setting, task management and proactivity. It looks at delegation and meetings management, and tackles the contemporary issues of generating personal energy, managing email and working from home.
