I listened to the time management podcast at the end of last week. It was a tough week, back to back meetings and nothing usual getting done. Well, so I thought! Friday, I did a quick tally of just how many meetings I had - 20 hours! So where did the other 17 (plus!) hours go? I don't know. But it did incentivise me to block out some time for my number 1 priority this week - hidden in my diary subtly marked MH!
This morning when I got in, I tried to ignore my email and start immediately on my priority. I dithered a bit but started about 10 minutes late. 45 minutes later, the document I've been trying to start/finish for weeks was done. Cool! I thought. That was so important, what shall I do now.. and for the next 3 hours, when i had uninterupted time that I never get, I faffed and dithered and didn't achieve anything.
I'm still trying to work out what I learnt from this.. but going to try again tommorrow - the FRPlan is about to be ticked off!
