Prioritization – a long-term investment in your own goals
25/06/2018

All resources are limited.

There is no perpetuum mobile.

Time is one of these resources which we sometimes do not use to its true value, even though we know it is not renewable. Managing time efficiently leads to a good professional life management.

Scheduling activities properly almost automatically generates improved expected results, an optimized  entire working system and a lower level of stress. The pace of planning activities is the one which ensures their completion and the responsibility of defining it is ours and ours alone. However, defining the list of activities would not be enough for a guaranteed efficiency. Knowing what needs to be done does not necessarily mean that those specific tasks will be completed. Prioritizing them stands for an important step, along with timeboxing them in dedicated time frames, especially for providing a perspective concerning their deadlines. And last, but not least, the discipline of following-up the whole process, making sure the equation is complete by this element. Everyone has got their own working routine, everyone defines efficiency in their own specific way, having everything directly influenced by the type of activity they are performing, volume of work, etc.

Classical training & development programmes approaching time management topic usually cover and detail all the above-mentioned elements. General rules of efficiency are promoted, strategies are defined to be implemented, so that disruptive factors would be eliminated, but these strategies are not always the most suitable ones for individual working routines. What PEP® (Personal Efficiency Program) brings in is the efficiency strategy & structure which are adjusted on an individual level, at the working place in real working environment. The concept itself, which has successfully been implemented in over 35 countries, combines individual consulting & coaching methods in an optimised manner, leading to timeboxing activities and an up to 30% productivity increase for each participant.
