Fix Your Time Management Problem in 15 Minutes
Leadership coach and productivity expert Jason Womack recently blew my mind with this video on Inc. called “How 15 Minutes Can Fix Your Time Management.“
What’s the theory?
Your day is actually comprised of 96 sections of 15 minutes of time. What would happen if you learned to harness that 15 minutes of time?
How did Jason come up with this theory?
Jason tells the story of dealing with a colleague who was 15 minutes late for a meeting. Rather than sitting idle in the waiting room or spending 15 minutes surfing the web on his phone, he took out his phone and a pad of paper and asked himself, “How many things can I move forward in this 15 minutes?”
How can you find your 15 minute strategy?
Jason asks us all in the video to get out a piece of paper and a pen and write at the top of the page “What I would do if I had 15 minutes.” Then, list all the things you would accomplish. Keep that list, and use some of your 96 sections this week to get those things DONE!
