What box should you be working in?
Time is critical to everyone in society; it’s not just relevant to the jewellery trade; we all have this in common. One of the difficulties in time management is judging whether an activity is urgent, important, both or neither. We tend to do the most urgent tasks first without considering if it is the most important. Did you know there is a time management classification for everything we do?
The classification is first the urgency of a task (urgent or not urgent), and second is the importance of the task (important or not important)
Most people tend to spend their time in boxes 1 and 3. When you have many tasks and deadlines, prioritising tasks equalling time can happen according to who shouts the loudest and last or from a senior colleague. This can stop people from questioning and probing to identify the fundamental importance and urgency of the task. Any spare time is typically spent in box 4, completing tasks that are non-productive. And box 2 is where people spend less time even though this is the most critical area for success, development and pro-active self-determination.
