Reflectionon Time Management

Ilearned that a constant need to understand the issues at hand beforemaking any decision or taking actions since most decisions areirreversible because time is a precious limited resources. I wouldensure my contribution to my workplace is clear so that otherco-workers are aware that interruptions are not welcome on my desk.The survey was a revelation when it came to handling co-workers. Ithought that perhaps I was too serious with them since I maintain arule of not engaging in social talks at workplace before completingthe assigned work. In addition to that, it hugely contributes tocementing my social skills such as proper priority management, promptcommunication, dealing with deadline extensions and developingresponsible coworkers (Armstrong,2011).I realized that taking few minutes to socialize at workplace is partof proper time management while having frequent work reviews is timewasting (Käser, Fischbacher &amp König, 2013). Istill&nbsphave&nbsphomework to do in order to optimize my time atworkplace and increase the time I spend on outside activities.

Iensure there is no chance of taking home any work because I have astrong belief that, delegation of work saves my time a great deal. Iam quick to deal with paperwork as quickly as possible so that mydesk remains clear. Over the years, I have realized the need to trainmy juniors on the best way to handle assigned jobs without expectingany supervision. However, I have a weakness of procrastinating makingsome decisions touching my subordinates’ issues. The survey, whichrequired role selecting a choice, enabled me to investigate how thetime utilization occurred from different perspectives and linked themwith what I believe should be part of my priorities when it comes totime management.
