Time Management - Mindset

2. 1st Things 1st


Effective Executives do 1st things 1st and they do 1 thing at a time. - Peter Drucker

Living by Compass Rather than Clock, Clock = Appointments, Schedules, Tasks, Compass = Vision, Values, Principles and conscience, Long term goals

Doing the right thing, rather than doing things right, Priorities, The question is who will make the decision - the executive or the pressures., If the pressures rather than the exec are allowed to make the decision, the important tasks will predictably be sacrificed., If priorities are determined by pressure, the work of management does not get done at all., Posteriorities, What tasks not to tackle, The reason why executives struggle to concentrate is the difficulty of setting posteriorities and sticking to that decision

Concentration, Concentration - that is the courage to impose on time and events his own decision as to what really matters and comes 1st - is the executive's only hope of becoming the master of time and events instead of their whipping boy. - Peter Drukcer

4 Quadrants

Urgent = Important?

Urgent, Urgent things act on us, We react to them, People are addicted to URGENCY instead of Importance

Important, It has to do with results, If something is important it contributes to your mission, values or high priority goals, Important Matters that are Not Urgent require more initiative and proactivity., If we don't have clarity on what is important, we are easily diverted into responding to the URGENT

The Matrix, 1., 2., 3.

4. Thinking

Concentrated Thinking

Deep thinking+ Long Term thinking

Schedule time to think

3.Switch Tasking

Why Switch Tasking is BAD

Stress Levels go up

Time required goes up by 70% or more

Quality Goes down

The goal is to minimize the number of Task Switches

1. The overwhelm


Too much to do and too little time?

It never ends

You struggle to get caught up and new tasks and responsibilities keep rolling in.

You will NEVER be able to do everything you wish to do

You will be behind on some tasks and responsibilities and possibly in many

The Challenge - to get the most important things done

There will never be enough time to do everything, but there is always enough time to do the most important things.
