Time Management: Why You Don't Need it, Can't Do it Anyway, and What to Do Instead Are you in charge of your to-do lists or are your lists in charge of you? Faculty come to time management workshops hoping to find time for all their tasks and/or to learn how to stop procrastinating. This workshop won’t help you with either of those goals. Instead it will encourage you to procrastinate even more in order to prioritize time for the tasks and the experiences that are important to you. Come prepared to unlearn everything you have heard about time management so you can apply practices that will increase your effectiveness in teaching, writing, serving, and living well.
Participants will learn to:
Power your work with energy by designing Great Work, work that flows easily from a deep sense of meaning and purpose.
Align all of your tasks and activities management with a vision about your career and your life that goes beyond the traditional time management to help you prioritize important tasks instead of wandering from task to task.
As a result, you will:
Work from power so that you can focus on important tasks instead of wandering from task to task.
Decide more easily what tasks are worthy of your time and energy.
Procrastinate creatively so you can prioritize time, energy, and space for professional activities including research and writing.
Construct to-do lists that are realistic and achievable.
Create accountability strategies to keep you on track in all spheres, professional and personal, all in one place.
