Time Management has always been an important topic for our clients but seems even more relevant today as we juggle multiple priorities at once and so are our team members. Time Management is key to obtaining productivity and ensuring that you can close your office day at the end of the day and feel like you’ve accomplished what you needed to accomplish.
The Pomodoro technique remains one of my personal faves, because it promotes creating an environment with minimal distractions and short bursts of work. The “Pomodoro” is a 25-minute focused work session. Each session is separated by a 5-minute break. When you have completed 4 Pomodoro, take a longer break (like lunch) to rest and recharge. ALL notifications and distractions should be turned off for your Pomodoro. Check out a breakdown of the tool found on our Navigating Change page
It’s also helpful to set out a schedule for the kiddos and build your work schedule around that. For example, at 9am I get the boys set up for their schoolwork and help them along at first, then I can get back to the work things I need to focus on for the day. In between my Pomodoros I can go and check on their progress and answer any questions they might have.
In the words of Paul J. Meyer, Productivity is never an accident. It is always the result of a commitment to excellence, intelligent planning, and focused effort.”
