  1. Becoming a professional

  2. Time: a personal decision • Time Management • Getting done what you want to do when you want to do it • Has nothing to do with being neat or perfect

  3. WASTING TIME The Unproductive Task The Wrong Task Not doing the most important activity; not prioritizing Cleaning the basement instead of cleaning the bathroom Other Examples: • Doing other activities in place of what should be done • Examples: talking on phone, surfing net, checking email too often

  4. WASTING TIME The Right Task Done the Wrong Way Too Much Detail Trying to focus too much on perfection Examples: Reprinting several times because a color is wrong Other examples: • Often includes rushing the task and not doing it right • Can be result of procrastination • Examples: Not sanding a woods project well enough before finishing it

  5. procrastination Procrastinators often avoid difficult jobs May only be a problem in some areas of your life, such as paying bills or at school. • Putting off tasks; “I’ll think about it tomorrow” • Excuses: • I’ve got too much work to start on it now • After I relax, I’ll start on it. • I don’t have enough time to do the whole thing now, so I won’t start

  6. HELING TO ELIMINATE PROCRASTINATION • Break a large job into smaller chunks • Take advantage of short cuts • Pay attention to your attention. If daydreaming, take a break • Remember perfection is not always necessary • Watch for time wasters • Do the most difficult, boring jobs first • Determine your most productive time of day—focus on getting your jobs done then

  7. Goal setting • Long-Term Goals • Take a long time to accomplish- (over 5 years) • May include family, career, finances • Examples: Own land; financially secure; have a family • Midterm Goals • 2-5 years • Help complete long-term goals • Examples: Earn college degree; complete military; work full-time for a reputable business • Short-Term Goals • One year or less • You can work on these NOW (or near future) • Examples: Apply for military and pass basic training; pass first semester of college; put away $100/month into savings

  8. barriers • Blaming others or self-pity won’thelp • Remember: • Home Run King Babe Ruth struck out 1330 times • RH Macy failed in 7 businesses before Macy’s Dept. Store • Abe Lincoln lost the Senate race 2 years before he won the presidency • Things that block you from achieving goals • Examples • Lack of education • Procrastination • Relationship/family problems • Lack of money
