What's Your Time Personality?

Everybody uses time differently. Recognizing your particular personality style can help you overcome the obstacles that keep you from managing your time effectively and help you get on track.

SAS (Short Attention Span)
You start many tasks but get bored quickly and move on to something else. You have difficulty finishing projects.

Minimize distractions. Keep your office door closed, maybe even put up a "Do Not Disturb" sign. Break down projects into more manageable tasks that can be completed in a short amount of time. Write down all the steps to a particular project and systematically check them off one by one until finished.

Use a kitchen timer, set it for 15 minutes to a half hour and commit to working on your project or organizing task until the timer goes off.

You put so much time and attention into getting the details right that you don't get anything accomplished

Pad the time you put into completing a project. If you think something will take an hour to complete, set aside 90 minutes. Limit high priority projects to no more than 2 at a time. Don't try to take on more than you can handle.

Delegate. You can't do everything yourself. Let some of the details go, and get others to help you with routine aspects of your work. Prioritize. Determine what is most important to complete and focus on that first. Don't try to give 100% attention to everything.

You wait so long to start your project that you often become overwhelmed and intimidated by tasks. As a result you can't make a decision to do anything.
