Learn Time Management Skills to Help You Reach Your Goals

There are only so many hours in a day. Unfortunately, all too often, the number of things you need to get done far exceeds those available hours. With the right time management skills, though, you can find a way to make the most of every minute so that you can reach your goals.

But although everyone touts the benefits of time management, it’s far more complicated than writing down a to-do list and checking items off. That’s where Time Management: Learn how to manage your time so it will not manage you can help. You’ll get all the tools you need to make every day a success. Here are a few highlights of Training Solutions’ online time management course.

Setting SMART Goals

Many people set themselves up for failure through the goals they choose. For goals to be attainable, they need to meet all five of the following qualifications, known as The SMART Way:

  • Specific
  • Measurable
  • Achievable
  • Relevant
  • Timed

The course will help you learn the difference between good and bad goals to help you give yourself the edge.

Planning and Prioritizing Tasks

Writing down your goals is just the start. An important part of organizing each day is determining which items need your immediate attention and putting those first. Time Management teaches you how to become more productive, including walking you through creating and maintaining a productivity journal. It also walks you through the Urgent/Important Matrix, equipping you with the information you need to better prioritize. 

Managing Unexpected Emergencies

Despite your best efforts, there will be events throughout the day that demand your immediate attention. You’ll learn strategies for handling these crises quickly so that you can get back to checking items off your to-do list. 

Managing Teams

Even with great time management strategies, you’re only one person. If you have others who can help you out, one of the best things you can do is learn to delegate. Through this course, you’ll learn how to determine which tasks you should pass off to others, as well as how to decide who should receive those assignments.
