Intro Everyone has been late for something in their lives. And everyone knows someone who is ‘always late’ (this isn’t a good thing, it’s just a thing).
But in a time-sensitive world, how can we claw some of this back and start to take control of time? The same time that everyone else has in the world. 24 hours a day.
Let’s chat to Kate Christie, Founder & CEO of Time Stylers. Kate is a time management specialist; global Speaker; consultant and the best-selling author of four books, the most recent of which is ‘Me First: The Guilt-free Guide to Prioritising You’ (links are in the show notes).
Kate consults on maximising time, with a reputation for helping clients find 30 hours of lost time a month.
In this episode we cover; - The main time stealers - Time investment tips - Making sure your day is productive - What teams need to focus on to become more productive - Can we rely on technology for time management?
Takeaways Top Tip Don’t think of time as management, it’s an investment. If you do the math’s, your time investment really adds up as Kate so eloquently put it with her numbers and figures. Let’s make sure we invest it in something worthwhile.
Favourite Quote ‘Each time we’re interrupted, it takes us about 23 minutes to return to the task we were interrupted from’ which is such a powerful statement. That means, we could literally spend a week not doing the task in hand!!!! Wow1
And Finally, the Most Important Takeaway from this Episode Set a weekly to do list (on a Sunday), this way you can see which activities should be non-negotiable. If you don’t do this then, as Parkinson’s Law shows, we will end up filling our time appropriately with other tasks, missing out those that could really shift things along.
