Tips for Self Time Analysis

Aug 17, 2007
There are many times we have end up the day, but we realize that we did not do many things in that day. Probably this is because we spent too much time on one particular thing. In this article we will learn to analyst ourselves.

If you want to get a real feel of what I mean try tapping your foot and snapping your fingers at the same time but to a different beat. Before you know it, one will have reached the beat of the other.

But of course, it is all a matter of common sense when it comes to choosing which two things that you can do together at the same time. It certainly will be ridiculous for you to choose to clip you nails while you are attending a board meeting. And it would be in bad taste to use a tooth pick while dictating a letter to your secretary. But you can carry your lap top while you are traveling and work on it during a flight or train journey.

The concept of doing two things at the same time is the underlying idea behind a working lunch. You get to eat and at the same time you get to do business. I will let you in on a small tip as far as working lunches are concerned. It is always better to meet and do business with an important client over lunch. I mean a lunch for which you are footing the bill of course.

One of the advantages is that there is lesser chance for disturbances at a restaurant. But the most important advantage is that when two people sit together and eat together and probably have a glass of wine or two, they kind of open up. Warm food has that effect on people.

Generally speaking, if your stomach is happy and contented and your taste buds are tickled, then you are happy. In such a circumstance you feel happy with whole world. And as for the person who treated you such a good lunch, oh well, the deal is his. There, you got your business did not you?

At such times, you may try to remember that though your intention must have been to conclude a good business, you must not forget to enjoy your meal; after all, you are paying for it.

We have talked about time wasters and time killers; we have talked about getting organized and we have talked about prioritizing. But one vital point that we yet to talk about is how much time each one of us take for our various activities. We are truthful people are not we? We would not dream of lying and telling false hoods. But often in our daily life, when it comes to matters of time in particular, we do tell a lot of lies. How many times have we made statements like?

I will be with you in a minute
I need only a moment to get dressed
Just give me two minutes, all I have to do is take a shower and get dressed.
I am on my way, I will be there in a couple of minutes.

Do these words sound familiar? We all say them and we never do what we promise. That is not because we are habitual liars who get our kicks by laying though our teeth. It is simply because we do not realize the actual time that we take for the activities that we do.

For instance, how long do you need to have a shower? I do not mean the exact time down to the microsecond. I just want a general idea. Maybe it is 5 minutes, maybe 10. But you should understand that different people need and take different times to take a shower. The word itself is miss leading.

It is very important if we can analysts ourselves and our schedules, so we can make a better calculation of our agenda. This will help us a lot in accomplish our works.
