Many of us use to do strategic investment plan for monitory and financial gain , however very few even know about strategic investment plan for TIME. We all know that the time is equally important factor for our monitory and financial gain. I read that Some people live life in years, and some people live life in hours & Minutes to get more out of life…!!
Most of the people have questions that “Why only people on top looks always busy?” The fact is they do not look busy because they are at top management but as they have lots of task to complete so that makes them busy whole day. And you can also have your task list to make sure that you reach to top with your planing, hard work and strategic time investment.
I observed in mid size office culture in India that employees do not even know about the productive value of time investment. They use to work with deadline, but majority of them do not calculate and design path to reach the deadline on time by preparing task list to perform on daily bases with reverse engineering. I find 63% projects or task got procrastinated due to same issue here. Management use to have corporate trainers or training seminars to convey the time investment importance to their resources.
Lets discuss with very simple and basic formula of how to plan Time Investment for your daily office activity.
In your daily activity you need to create one time investment matrix which shows that how much time and effort you need to invest behind what activity. Once you defined your all activities, you need to set priority base upon its Importance. We can segregate it in to four categories on daily, weekly and monthly bases.
A: Urgent and Important
B: Urgent but not Important
C: Not Urgent but Important
D: Not Urgent and Not Important
These helps to chose right task for me to start the day and invest my time with prioritize order.
This is just a basic formula, in advance stage of time investment matrix you can define your activities with detailed task list. It will help you to judge futuristic time investment matrix by verifying status of tasks. You can have your eye on task complied, half completed, and uncompleted to manage it according to your time availability and priority.
Not only for your office work, you can also make this chart for your daily life activity tasks by segregating it in four more division of
– Personal Tasks,
– Social Tasks,
– Spiritual Tasks and
– Professional Tasks.
That will also allow you to design your life style with more focused and successful way.
This will help you to plan your day with maximum utilization of time and enhanced productivity for your organization.
