Description

This course series covers a multitude of carefully selected time management methods and shows you the concepts behind the methods step-by-step - plus - what needs to be done such that you can apply these method for yourself. Knowledge of psychological effects, the bio-rhythm, as well as coping with motivational pitfalls (or one's weaker self) complement the method training. At the beginning, the relationship between time management and self-management creates the right mindset, so that the later use of the methods does not result into a challenging task itself and ultimately costs more time than it saves. Important plus: This course is not only about different methods of time management as such, but also about the interleaving of the methods for a more general and all-inclusive self and time management for yourself as well as in a team.

This course series comprises five courses that are available solely as well as within a master course. With the master course, you get the full content within one package.

This fifth course covers the following aspects of time management:

  • Distinguish between self management and time management to focus on the relevant things in your life instead of the currently urgent ones.

  • Apply the Pomodoro technique to get yourself into a working mode.

  • Learn to identify sources of distraction and how to avoid them.

  • Knowing the effects of Parkinson's law and use that to avoid procrastination.

  • Get to know the Principles of Deep Work (by Cal Newport) to get into the Flow state of concentrated and focused working.

  • Employees with a stressful professional life
  • Self-employed / Freelancer with a challenging list of deadlines to follow
