MODULE 1

Diploma in Time Management

1.It all starts with a plan

Some love it, some hate it, and others prefer to live for the moment, but planning is crucial and should be the first step in improving your time management skills. By setting aside time regularly to achieve what you set out to do, you are effectively building on your time management skills. We start the first lesson with the most important step in time management- planning!

2.Sticking to a plan

Now that we have a plan, we need to identify the steps to take to ensure we stick to the plan! LIn this lesson we understand the benefits of setting a deadline, we learn how to prioritise our tasks, and set a goal, whether a long-term or a short-term goal on how to achieve what we need to do.

3.Action rather than distraction

In this lesson, we determine if it is better to work on one goal or project at a time, or if we work on multiple goals, how does it affect the outcomes and timing of those goals, and how do we avoid distractions when working on your goals.

4.Don't hesitate- delegate!

Feel like you are doing a million things at once? Mind is racing between what you are busy with, what you still need to do, and what you haven’t done yet. You may feel like because you are focussing on one task at a time, you have too much on your plate- you need to learn to delegate!

5.Expect the unexpected

Sometimes, things happen, and you just cannot stick to the plan, and that’s ok! You need to always allow and plan for the unexpected so that it does not catch you by surprise! It is important to learn how to plan for the unexpected when it does happen, because, at some time or another, it will. In this lesson we discuss the considerations and steps to be prepared when the unexpected happens.

6.Its all in the technique

Up until now, we have identified all the factors to consider when wanting to improve time management skills to avoid feeling like there are just not enough hours at the end of our day. There are a variety of techniques to use in order to do this. In this lesson we discuss the various techniques one could use to improve their time management skills.

7.Is it worth it?

Have you ever stopped to wonder, does this task or activity deserve the amount of time I am allocating to it, and is it really worth it? In this lesson, we identify and discuss the methods to assess if a task is worthy of your time

8.The Superpower of Self-management

There is no such thing as time management, there is only self-management. In order to plan efficiently and timeously, you need to be self-motivated to want to achieve. In this lesson, we round up the course with a lesson on self-management and how it relates to time management. Time management can be summed up as managing what we do and when we do it, and the only way we can do that is if we are able to manage ourselves.
