What are your time management statistics? How well do you manage your time? How does your time management affect co-workers, friends and family? Has poor time management cost you anything personally or professionally? What would you GAIN if you improved your time management skills?
Here are a few statistics about time management.
- The average person has 1 interruption every 8 minutes, or 50-60 per day.
- The average interruption takes 5 minutes, totaling about 4 hours.
- 80% of interruptions are typically “little value” or “no value” creating approximately 3 hours of wasted time daily.
- 20% of the average workday is spent on “crucial” and “important” things, while 80% of the average workday is spent on things that have “little value” or “no value”.
- A person with a cluttered desk spends, on average, 1 1/2 hours per day looking for things or being distracted by things for a total of roughly 7 1/2 per workweek.
This is where the rubber meets the road. Many people say X is important, but that isn’t reflected in how they spend their time. Luckily, time management is a skill that you can learn. Most of us have areas where we don’t manage our time well and when you eliminate those you can gain extra time.
I will work with you to support you in discovering how routines can support you in saving time, prioritizing, planning your day, getting a handle on social media, and other ways to manage your time. We will also see if you have mental clutter such as procrastination or need a boost in confidence.
