  1. Time (Priority) Management - Part 2 (Hall Of Fame Guidance) | Manager Tools

    Today, we cover the second in a two-part series of podcasts on Time Management.

    If you’re new to the show or you didn’t listen to last week’s podcast, it’s probably worth while going back and listening to the previous show first.

    Otherwise, you’ll be joining the conversation half-way through and we all know how comfortable that feels.

    :-(

    We recommend 4 1/2 steps to analyzing your use of time

    Roughly Assess Your Time - absolutely no materials other than pen and paper allowed!

    Capture Your Priorities

    Do a Rough Analysis

    (part b, only for the truly committed) - Do a "Drucker" Analysis

    Put Your Number One Priority on Your Calendar

    That’s it!

    We walked through steps 1 and 2 last week, today we cover the remainder.

  2. Time (Priority) Management - Part 1 (Hall Of Fame Guidance) | Manager Tools

    Time management is a fallacy, we like to say.

    Time doesn’t need you to "manage" it - it’s been getting along just fine without you for billions of years.

    We can’t manage time.

    But what we CAN manage is what we do with that time.

    And yet, the overwhelming evidence is that managers do NOT "manage what they do with that time."

    There’s a shocking CHASM between our behavior in this area and our knowledge of what to do.

    In fact, Mark recently blogged on how busy everyone says they are, which irritates him.

    He looks at their calendars, and there’s no EVIDENCE that they’re busy.

    There are vast swaths of unscheduled time!

    Peter Drucker, in the first prescriptive chapter of his seminal work, the Effective Executive, says it best (of course): "The output limits of any process are set by the scarcest resource.

    In the process we call "accomplishment", this is time … Of the other major resources, money is actually quite plentiful … People … one can hire.

    But one cannot rent, hire, buy or otherwise obtain more time."

    So, the question is, how can managers start to become more efficient about using the time that each of us has at our disposal?

    In fact, that’s a great way to state it:

    STOP disposing of your time!

    It’s not only your most precious resource, it’s also your most perishable!

    This cast will get you started doing just that.

  10. HW 5.1: The Giant Pool of Money

    "The Giant Pool of Money" by Alex Blumberg and Adam Davidson for This American Life

    The first good breakdown of how the 2008 financial crisis actually happened. This is the story of complicated economic systems, but told through characters, examining the motivations and feelings of people at each step of the process. This approach makes the system concrete, relatable, and engaging as a narrative in a way that an abstract description of the flow of money can’t do.
