Are You a Sucker for Time Management Traps?

Are You a Sucker for Time Management Traps?

You May be Losing Potential Income!

Abstract business backgroundAs they say, time is money; if you’re not out movin’ and shakin’, you might as well kiss your income goodbye. But time management is a tricky beast. Corporate professionals and small business owners, especially those with limited funds, can spread themselves TOO THIN, thinking that they must be everything to everyone in order to get the next BIG thing. In reality, you can’t be available 24/7. You just can’t. If you are, or are trying to be, then you’re probably running in an endless loop, and low on steam.

As a time management consultant, I encourage clients to take a step back and identify some of the time management traps they might have fallen into. I encourage them to track their activities, and pinpoint which ones are actually productive – and lucrative.

If you need help identifying your own time management pitfalls, Marla Tabaka, a life and business coach who frequently columns for Inc. Magazine, has come up with the following set of true/false statements to see if you have fallen for the traps. They can be applied to lawyers, or other business professionals.

  • I give away a lot of my products, services and/or time to convince a prospect to buy.
  • I will often break my own rules and take risks that could lead to not being paid on time – or at all.
  • I run errands, do housework or take personal phone calls during my ‘work day’.
  • I get easily distracted on the internet and am taken off-task at least once a day.
  • I answer phones, read email and attempt to complete my projects all at the same time.
  • When I get a new idea I drop what I’m doing to explore every angle of that idea.
  • I rarely assign blocks of time or schedule my tasks/goals. I just do them as I see fit – or when I can squeeze them in.
  • I spend a lot of time and resources to close a sale and I don’t keep track of the cost (including my time).
  • I feel guilty if I don’t answer the phone when my mother or best friend calls durin g my work day, so I take the call and feel preoccupied the whole time.
  • I will drop everything if the opportunity for lunch with a friend or a fun outing presents itself.
  • I do everything myself because it’s faster than explaining it to my virtual assistant, intern or freelancer.
  • I don’t bother with self-imposed deadlines because I can never meet them anyway.
  • I do all of my own administrative and bookkeeping work because I could never afford someone to do it for me.
  • I have two or more revenue-generating ideas that I feel very confident about but can never find the time to implement or explore.
  • I don’t have time to make ‘to-do’ lists, they never get completed anyway.
  • I often spend time exploring my new ideas but rarely take the time to implement them.
  • I go to networking events but rarely find the time to follow up with the people I meet.

How many of these time management traps are true to you?

How to save your career

How to save your career

Outlook is far more than email.

Have you ever found yourself saying, “if only I understood the computer programs I already have in place,” life would be easier?

Outlook is a robust corporate application that was built to make email and your life easy. Many of our clients had no idea how to use all the program has to offer.

Today’s quick tips will help you get a handle on Outlook right now and start using all the program has to offer.

Follow these steps and you’ll be on your way to removing paper clutter and becoming the effective professional you strive to be. Being disorganized is not a luxury we have any more if we want our employees and organization to be on top of their game.11

Stop rewriting the same email over and over. Save yourself time with a Power Draft.

In a new email message, type the guts of your message. Give it a general subject such as “Client Thank You” (the subject line name will be used for your reference only).

Select File, then save to keep it in your draft folder. Don’t use save as.
When you need to write another email, go to your drafts folder in Outlook, highlight the draft click hit Control-C (to copy it), then Control-V (to paste it).
Open the duplicate email, add an introduction or personal note, change the subject line to be appropriate and send it!

We call the next tips a Career Saver!

How many times have you had to send a follow-up email because you forgot to include attachments? Do you feel foolish apologizing to your boss or your most important client for failing to attach the essential documents? It’s our job to make you look good!

Follow this rule and never feel foolish again!

Delay sending every email by 2 minutes!

Create a rule in Outlook

Click on Tools/Rules and Alerts
Select Check Messages After Sending
Click Next twice
Click YES and you will see this message: “This rule will fire for all outgoing mail.”
Set to Defer delivery by 2 minutes.
Select Finish

Our workshops enable every member of an organization to work more efficiently and effectively together. We help our clients get the most important tasks done during the day so they don’t have to be in the office all night.

You give us your time and we’ll teach you how to make more of it.

Meetings: The Practical Alternative to Work!

Meetings: The Practical Alternative to Work!

11Are you lonely? Hate working on your own? Don’t like making decisions? Then call a meeting!

You can:
SEE people
DRAW flowcharts
FEEL important
FORM subcommittees
IMPRESS your colleagues

ALL on company time!

It’s not so funny when you consider how true it is. Unproductive meetings drain morale and get your people off-course, making it even more difficult to be productive the rest of the day. Meetings should not be office get-togethers.

Meetings now consume 30-40% of the average professional’s day.

62% of meetings lack a clearly stated objective and agenda.

Follow today’s tips and you’ll start saving you and your co-workers 6 DAYS A YEAR.

TIP #1

Schedule 20- and 50-minute meetings. We tend to schedule hour-long or half-hour-long meetings because that’s how we measure time. By shortening meetings just ten minutes, not only will you help your people make it on time to their next meeting, they’ll appreciate that you respect their time. And you’ll come to find that you didn’t need that extra ten minutes after all. (Next time cut the meeting time down 15 minutes!)

TIP #2

Create a Power Draft email so you always attend meetings 150% prepared.

First explain in one sentence that you are emailing to ensure you are properly prepared.
Request the objective and the meeting agenda.
Close the email by requesting the person let you know any and all information you should be prepared to share.

The best way to communicate on the phone

111. Be Prepared- If no-one answers when you call
Many times we are prepared for a two way conversation; however 70% of all calls are answered by a voice mail.

Make sure you have a quick message prepared in your mind if no one answers. As briefly as possible leave Who-What-Where-Why and When.

2. Who is calling?
Speak slowly and clearly, give your name and spell your name if it isn’t an easy one to interrupt. Leave your phone number at the beginning and the end of the message.

3. What & Why
Be clear and concise but let the caller know why you are calling.

If there is anything that you are asking them to do and it can be stated briefly, do so.

4. Where
If the action requires a location be specific

5. When
State timeline if you have one. Don’t let the caller guess when you want the requested information.

6. Length
The message should be one-minute long or less. It is important not to check your

“We” vs. “Me”

How do you get it all done
in the Summer?
Simple Equation:

11
11
How do we find extra time in our schedules in the summer? The children’s activities, extra yard work, vacation time, fun time you name it and somehow mysteriously we find the time in the same 1440 minutes in the day. How does it get done? We must be concentrating harder at work to become more efficient to get out of the office on time! Perhaps its team work everyone is focusing on the right priorities. Let’s get home to our families and fun. How can we keep up that momentum all year long?

With any initiative we emphasize the greatest ROI comes when many people adopt a small number of high impact best practices, similar to what you most likely devise for your family with creating and assigning chores to keep the household running smoothly.

Business environment is no different. Productivity is lost through ineffective team interaction (focusing on the wrong priorities, poorly written email, lost info on shared drives, unprepared meeting participants, etc.). One

inefficient person on a team can slow the entire team down! If one team member writes long-winded messages – everyone suffers.

The biggest loser is a leader who doesn’t know how to coach productivity. The result is a team that falls behind on projects, misses opportunities, and frequently mis-communicates.

Just as we may pick the eldest child to help oversee the home, let’s plan our work initiative with the thought of “WE” vs. ‘Me” mentality.

11Pilot Program: Kaizen Method has been around since World War II, which means continuous improvement. If you assign chores and they don’t get it quite right don’t just give up and say you should have done it yourself. Teach and go for continuous improvement.

When we start a Pilot Training Program in a company and then activate the programming company wide the departments will do nothing but improve.

We start by activating the “team training” category and find leader champions who are ambitious and results oriented. They’ll motivate their people to attend because they see a better way for everyone to work. Hint: The higher you go in the management ladder, the more people “get” that this is an enterprise imperative. Leaders view the benefits of efficiency and improved productivity as a corporate quality or a process improvement initiative similar to Six Sigma or Lean.

Then when the pilot is a smash hit, a team-based program will be easy to scale to the rest of the organization. Think big. Think team.

11 Simple Steps to De-Cluttering Your Desk

11 Simple Steps to De-Cluttering Your Desk.

We previously discussed getting your head around the concept of getting organized is a combination of both the physical and mental side.

11

We previously discussed getting your head around the concept of getting organized is a combination of both the physical and mental side.
Let’s take a look at our physical space

Do you sometimes wonder how you lost real estate in your office?
The paper mongrels have eaten it up the desk is somewhere?
Where did these piles of paper come from?
I thought we were supposed to be green? Paperless sounds good, however many people still want to print documents out. Why because if they save it in their computer they may never find it in the giant black hole.

A cluttered work desk is a major problem when it comes to your productivity. Now is a good time to take care of it. Since the New Year is around the corner, lets clean up and start fresh.

Step #1: Designate time to get started in your calendar. The time needed to clear the office clutter depends on how much clutter you have in your office. If you find yourself getting lost or overwhelmed in the clutter you may want to consider hiring a professional organizer.

Step #2: Gather some empty cardboard boxes, a shredder, file folders, labels, post it notes and some empty boxes.

Step #3: Set up a card table to work on a clean surface. The project most likely won’t happen in one setting depending on the degree of clutter. This will allow for you keep up your routine without needing to relocate sorted piles.

Step #4: Clear your desk and transfer papers onto the empty space. Generally there will be a lot of loose papers, invoices, letters and project reports lying around.

Start sorting the papers into separate piles of like kind items. The receipts, the project reports, the mail and invoices should be separated.
Any papers where there is no action required, put a post it note on the pile where it should be filed or the name that would go on a file folder. Scan when possible. Our Get Control Get Organized in addition to the Go System courses teaches how to systematize your documents.
Step #5: Purge as you go, the junk mail should be thrown in the garbage, recycle where you can. Some of the papers may need shredding put them in a separate box labeled accordingly. If your office doesn’t have a shredding department be cautious, I once burnt up a

shredder trying to do it myself. It normally isn’t worth your time. Ask your banker if they have a shredding day. Most UPS stores has arrangements with shredding company and you can drop your sorted box off there they charge by the pound. Check ahead to see what the requirements are on if they will accept binders etc. If you have several boxes shredding companies will come on site and they shred the documents in minutes in front of you, so there are no worries about confidentiality.

Step #6: Make sure you are compliant with the company’s retention programs before throwing sorted documents away. There are individual rules for each organization. If you aren’t sure what is to be sure to ask your legal department and save the items in a separate folder. If you don’t have a retention policy this is the time to create one.

Step #7: Create folders from sorted files in step #4. File away anything that requires action, they should be placed in a tickler file. We teach this system as part of our Go System Training.

Step #8: File away remaining files in your reference files or scan.

Step #9: Move onto the drawers. Be careful putting your hand in there just in case something is growing. Oh by the way the work desk really shouldn’t be the refrigerator or your personal cosmetic drawer. If you are finding it is full of piles of business cards you collected throughout the years you may want to think of a better way to organize your contacts. Card Scanners work great and they intergrade into Microsoft Office. This is another newsletter…

Step #10: Don’t be afraid to ask for help. If at this point you are totally overwhelmed, still not sure on what decision to make on the piles, don’t give up yet. This is the part where even professional organizers can feel overwhelmed but we can see the big picture and have the expertise on how to handle this process. If you are ADD or ADHD don’t ever try this on your own. Know your abilities, strengths and limitation to be successful or you’ll lose your sanity.

Are the file cabinets full?

Step #11: Take the time to look into that black hole. Before taking up more prime real estate on the floor consider cleaning the file cabinet out or going paperless.

Networking Dilemma: How to follow up on those leads?

We all know that networking is one of the surest ways of growing one’s circle of business contacts but once you have met someone or have been introduced, how do you follow up on it? How do you make sure that the connections you have made while networking prove effective for your organization?

11

Most professionals or business owners, who attend a networking event, end up with a bunch of business cards which they consider important but often those business cards end up biting the dust or lost in some card holder ‘somewhere’. Even though most professionals / business owners understand the importance of following up on

the leads, they don’t have a proper system in place to manage those leads and information productively. According to a study done by CareerXRoads, 27% of all the external hiring in America happens through referrals and networking. Similarly, a study done by Nielsen showed that customers were four times more likely to buy a product when it has been referred by someone they know and New York Times had reported that 65% of all the new business for an organization or firm comes from referrals. All these studies just go on to show the importance of effective networking and that is why we at Time’s up have a theory that businesses and professionals who are successful in following up on leads take away the sales from those who don’t. In our Endeavour to help our clients to efficaciously use their time and resources, we have come up with a system that allows them to take business networking to the next level. The Time’s Up training program on ‘Follow Up Retention For Networking’ has been created keeping those businesses and professionals in mind, who take networking seriously. The core of the training program lies in a proven system designed by us through which one can scan the business cards they receive on both sides-with no equipment cost, get them synced with mail clients like Outlook or Gmail, invite those contacts on LinkedIn just by a touch, seamlessly import them to CRM or other programs and helps in automatically following up with clients at pre-decided intervals once an e-mail campaign has been created. Following up on leads, has never been made so easy!
