About the workshop

Everybody has just 24 hours in every day. Why is it that some people seem to achieve much more than others with their allotted time? Particularly in a research environment it is likely that there will never be enough time to do everything. This time management workshop will give you the tools to help you to choose the most important things when all things seem important.

We will consider different ways to assess priorities, to deal with timewasters, manage deadlines, identify the major drains on your time or energies and explore different tools to structure your use of time and resources. The course also allows you to develop your own work-life balance and to reflect on how you choose to spend your time.

Learning outcomes

As a result of this workshop you will have the tools to:

  • prioritise what you choose to do
  • streamline your use of time
  • define your own work-life balance
  • understand the difference between important and urgent
