Tag Archives: Time Management Training Courses
We all complain about the never ending deluge of emails, but we all continue to live in the INBOX. In order for you to get back some control of your day and stop “Reacting” to every email that arrives in your inbox, you need to start using your calendar screen in your groupware system ( Outlook, Lotus Notes, Groupwise) as your default screen.
This screen allows you to see your time available, if set up correctly you can also see the tasks you planned to do and your capacity to deliver work or not.
Always start your system up in your calendar screen.
These may seem like very simple methods, but our clients are often surprised at just how effective this simple technique is in helping to cut out interruptions throughout the day. A solid and robust attitude to your inbox, if practiced diligently can help gain back control of your day.

Time Management pushed to the extreme.
So, you would think that training for an Ironman (2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike, 26.2 mile run) would be a full time profession, particularly if you were recognised as one of the world greats, having competed in every Ironman in the world. So what if you also had responsibility for running the worlds largest fuel tank manufacturer, SAG Mecasa? Luis Alvarez is a busy man. He recently shared his tips on Time Management with Kevin Mackinnon.
Time Management, Work, Sport and Lifestyle.
Alvarez, from Mexico, manages to include a highly strict training regime within a tightly organised working day. For example, rising at 4am, he ‘multi-tasks’ that is, responds to international emails whilst on his treadmill by means of hooking a computer to a large screen. As well as a strict time management regiem, he relies on great teams, both in work and in his sport. He states “I have to be grateful for a great assistant and great team in Mexico” adding “Nobody can be irreplaceable, not even the owner or the CEO”. He manages to fit in 13 Ironmans per year during his 30 days off all around the world, laughing when he recalls a trip to Australia for a weekend.
From the Triathlon point of view, as a member of the Timex Multisport Team he says that the experience has changed his life, keeping him motivated an constantly pushing him to never plateau. This has resulted in almost 100 Ironman finishes and a place in the Guinness Book of Records.
Incredible to think that as an 11 year old, he started smoking and weighed over 200lbs, he was unable to walk 2km. He began to set goals. First to walk 5km, then 10Km. What were extreme goals then now pale into insignificance, but the lessons learnt and the methods devised have stayed with him and allowed him to achieve what most of us would call amazing.
A lot of lessons can be learned from this extremely successful sports and business person. Time Management, Team Building, Planning Efficiently are the obvious ones. To read the complete article, please visit the Ironman.com site by clicking this link.
