Covered in this course
This training course is broken down into 2 sections
- 1 Planning
- 2 Time-bandits
The course begins by looking at ways to effectively plan and manage your time. It helps you set long-term goals, which in turn help you create medium- and short-term steps to get there, stripping away anything which wastes your time.
The second half of the first section looks at some of the methods you can employ to help you prioritise your To-do list; from very simple to more advanced techniques for deciding which of your daily tasks take priority.
The second section of the course is all about those interruptions or periods of distraction which waste your time; we call them Time Bandits. The first half of this section looks at ways to deal with external time bandits – anything which originates outside of yourself and needlessly takes up your time.
The final half of this section looks at how to cope with internal time bandits – things which you do to waste your own time. This includes dealing with procrastination and why multi-tasking is a myth.
About this course
Time is our most precious resource, once it’s gone it can never be recovered. Yet despite this we’re not very good at using it wisely. It’s estimated that as much as 80% of our time is spent dealing with trivial tasks, or simply wasted as we keep putting off that all important work we really should be doing.
This Time Management course will equip you with the tools you need to take control over your time so you can spend longer doing the things that really matter. It will teach you how to effectively plan your goals, manage your schedule, and avoid distractions and the pitfalls of procrastination. There’s no one-size-fits-all approach to time management so this course offers a number of different tips and strategies for you to choose from, so no matter your working style, there’ll be something for you.

This puts a lot of information into a short time and is very useful 5* Doesn't need to be improved
Interesting ways in making time more productive.
valueless for a research scientist
do the important, ignore the urgent unless its important don't do internal time bandits intimidate external time bandits don't answer the phone
The course is a good reminder of the need for time management and some basics behind it but it is not earth shattering - hence not a 5 * rating
Interesting and informative course.
Well presented and structured with useful practical guidance.
Simple and easy to understand
It contains a lot information that could help on the daily basis or if someone requires knowledge regarding to it.
Lost interest fast. Nothing gripped me especially when being told how to write a to do list. Although I did find the activity log an interesting idea.
Interesting, its worth to give a try to their suggestions.
