Eight Time Management Skills You Should Master

Time management skills are important because your time is precious.

Most people have too much to do, and not enough time in which to do it, so managing your time is a vital skill.

In fact, time management is not ONE skill, but rather, a SET of skills.

If you master one of the skills, you will improve your performance a little.

If you master all of them, then you will improve your performance massively.

Here is the full set of time management skills, together with a description of each.

1. Goal focus.

Goal focus is the ability to concentrate on a goal; until you have achieved it.

2. Prioritisation.

Prioritisation is the ability to put tasks in their correct order, according to their Value and Deadline pressure.

3. Planning ahead.

Planning is the act of figuring out exactly HOW you can achieve your goals.

4. Preparation.

Preparation is the act of improving your skills, knowledge and information, ready for an event.

5. Delegation.

Delegation is the act of entrusting a task to another.

6. Prevention of avoidable errors.

Prevention is the act of doing it right first time and NOT making rookie mistakes.

7. Decision making.

Decision making is the act of choosing the best option from many options.

8. Managing interruptions.

Is the act of gaining the maximum value from a conversation in the minimum time.
