With leadership, and the responsibility that accompanies that role, there will be a never-ending ‘to-do’ list, and the possibility of frustration. To optimize ones effectiveness and efficiency, it is helpful to find a self-management framework that helps prioritize items ‘on the list’. From The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, Habit #3 is First Things First. In the book, Covey describes an approach using a 2x2 matrix to analyze how time is actually spent (daily, weekly, monthly) versus how time might be ‘spent’ if mindfully determined. After identifying ‘the first things’ in your life, and filling in the rest of the quadrants (worksheet provided), the areas for change are clearer. The important / not urgent quadrant is the section where the most important and personal (legacy, loving, learning, living) components of life are found, and is the quadrant most often ignored. The participants are invited to complete the analysis and make a commitment to change any item that is misaligned with personal values. An intentional ‘yes’ to engage in an activity supports making commitments that reflect the leaders’ highest value; ‘first things first’. A leader with well-aligned priorities and intentionality will be much more effective, and happier too. Objectives After this presentation, participants will: 1. Identify the importance of time management based on values and priorities. 2. Identify and organize personal priorities by their relative importance. Important Teaching Points • Time management is a learned skill (and is closely tied to self-management). • What is ‘urgent’ is often not important. • What is ‘important’ is often not urgent. • What is ‘urgent’ is often not your priority. • Learning to say “no” is an important step to control your time. • Use “Let me think about that and I will get back to you” or other phrase that gives you assessment time. • Multi-tasking actually diffuses one’s focus; better to do one thing at a time and do it well. • Aim for equanimity; steadiness of mind under stress.
