Ervaringen met time management

Kom je altijd tijd te kort ?

Wil je je tijd effectiever besteden ?

Hieronder een overzicht van 9 “wetten” die ik heb leren kennen tijdens mijn werk op allerlei projecten.

(Waarom het slechts 9 wetten zijn, lees je op het einde van dit artikel.)


Heel dikwijks zijn 20% van je taken echt dringend en de overige 80% zijn onbelangrijk.
Het gebeurt jammer genoeg nog te dikwijls dat men zich focust op die 80%. Door erg druk bezig te zijn, lijkt het alsof je ook  vooruitgang boekt maar schijn bedriegt.

Je mag  bedrijvigheid niet verwarren met verbetering en vooruitgang.
Het is belangrijk dat je eerst even de tijd neemt om te bepalen wat echt belangrijk is en wat niet.

Focus je op de belangrijke dingen.

Delegeren is één van de weinige manieren om echt meer gedaan te krijgen in minder tijd.

Als je anderen toelaat om wat van je werk over te nemen, heb je  niet alleen meer tijd om je te concentreren om wat belangrijk is maar je geeft zo ook andere collega’s de kans om hun eigen talent en kwaliteiten te laten zien.

Traagheid of inertie is ongelooflijk krachtig.
Het moeilijkste onderdeel van een groot project of van een belangrijke taak is de start.
Onbewust stel je zaken uit door je te verstoppen achter het excuus “dat je nu geen tijd hebt om je erop te focussen.”

Toch is het overwinnen van je start-probleem niet zo moelijk.
Begin ermee om die grote uitdaging op te splitsen in kleinere projecten of etappes.
Koppel aan elk onderdeel een deadline en hou je hieraan.
Ga je deadline niet altijd verplaatsen.

En dan …gewoon beginnen.

Het werk zal zoveel tijd in beslag nemen als jij er zelf aan toekent. Deze stelling is ook bekend onder de naam Parkisons Law.

Spreek met jezelf een duidelijk en eenvoudige deadline af. Als je jezelf te veel tijd geeft, maak je een berg van een moslhoop.

Multitasking werkt niet !
Onderzoek heeft aangetoond dat multitasking eigenlijk meer tijd in beslag neemt dat alle taken 1 per 1 , achter elkaar afwerken. Het switchen tussen taken schaadt ons vermogen om te leren.

Niets gaat zoals gepland.
De schrijver Arnold Bennet wist het het beste . 

“A first-rate organizer is never in a hurry. He is never late. He always keeps up his sleeve a margin for the unexpected.”

Het onverwachte ZAL gebeuren. Er zijn altijd onvoorziene omstandigheden.
Mensen die ervaren zijn in het toepassen van time management weten dit en houden in hun dagelijkse planning rekening met onvoorziene problemen.

Wat je op je takenlijst zet en wat je plan, wordt ook afgewerkt.
De Wet van Parkinson heeft ook nog een gevolg : Als je geen tijd hebt toegewezen aan iets dat afgewerkt moet worden, wordt dat lege tijdslot met iets anders gevuld. Waarschijnlijk met iets wat dringend lijkt.

Iedereen heeft een moment waarop hij het beste presteert. Sommigen hebben ‘s morgens veel energie, anderen presteren dan weer ’s middags het beste.
Wees je bewust van je eigen ritme en plan taken die veel aandacht en energie vragen, op jouw “prime time”

Net zoals batterijen moeten wij ook de tijd nemen om ons op te laden.
Soms kan het gebeuren dat je agenda te vol zit en dat je geen tijd hebt om een korte pauze te nemen.

Als dat dikwijls gebeurt, is het erg belangrijk dat je ’s avonds of tijdens het weekend voldoende tijd neemt om te ontspannen.

Te veel stress en spanning hebben een negatief effect op je cardiovasculaire gezondheid ( hart en bloedvaten), op je gewicht, je humeur en zelfs op je immuumsysteem.

Maak zeker tijd vrij om voldoende te ontspannen en om je batterijen op te laden.


Mijn  vraag aan de lezers…..

Waarom geef ik hier slechts 9 “wetten” terwijl er natuurlijk veel meer zijn ?

Ik vraag aan de lezers van dit artikel om zelf hun eigen ervaringen te delen met de andere lezers.
Als ik nog 11 extra ervaringen heb verzameld, dan bundel ik ze samen in een ebook.
Elke lezer die heeft bijgedragen, stuur ik dan een ebook op.

Wat moet je doen ?
Deel jouw ervaring met time management op de werkvloer of thuis met de andere lezers.
