Making the most of your time. Achieving more…

Steve delivered a talk on ‘How to achieve more in your work and personal life’ at a CIM branch workshop on personal effectiveness in March 2010.

The interactive session covered; How we spend our time each day, common problems with managing our time, the importance of planning and prioritising our activities, some top tips for being more effective at work, how to manage your ‘desk’ or workspace, how to deal with the ‘time wasters’, when to do those ‘minor’ tasks and some top tips for better use of your personal time.

Steve stressed that time is our most precious commodity – we can’t buy more of it and once it is gone we can’t get it back! So, we need to make the most of it!

He concluded with the quote that was recently pulled out of the cobwebs earlier this year by Chris Evans on Radio 2 – “If you keep doing what you’ve always done, you’ll always get what you always got!”

Perhaps you need to do things differently!

Time – making the most of it
