4 Ways To Manage Your Time Efficiently With Jones Loflin

Everyday we scramble to complete all of our tasks and meet grueling deadlines. However, it’s not always realistic given the time frame. Fortunately, Stress Management Speaker, Jones Loflin has provided us with four valuable tips on how to manage busy schedules.


How many times in the past week have you thought, “I only have __________ minutes right now?”

stress-management-speaker-eagles-talentJones Loflin states,  “Judging from my conversations with coaching clients and program participants, we are all saying it a lot more often. Not that it’s a bad thing to be cognizant of how much time you have available. It’s just that saying the phrase usually leads to choosing an easy-to-complete task (like checking email, social media, or some mindless activity) that really doesn’t move your work or life forward in the most meaningful way.”

As it turns out, there is an even bigger issue with our overloaded schedules. A study published in the  Journal of Consumer Research found that bounded intervals of time (e.g., an hour before a scheduled meeting) feel shorter than unbounded intervals of time (e.g., an hour with nothing scheduled afterwards). Because we perceive that we have less time, we get less work done, especially work on bigger projects. It gets worse. Overloaded schedules can also lead to:

  • Increased procrastination. If you have an hour but feel like it’s only 30 minutes because of that next meeting or appointment, you rationalize that you shouldn’t start anything important.
  • Exponential loss of productivity. If you have three meetings in a day that start one hour after the last one ends, you could be wasting up to three hours of your day.
  • Lack of creativity and deep thinking. When you leave no room in your day to pursue answers to the “I wonder…” or “What if….” questions, you shackle yourself to the status quo and miss opportunities for professional and personal growth.

If you’re ready to prune that schedule that’s growing out of control, here are some suggestions:

1. Break larger projects into 15-30 minute “productivity pieces.”
As you plan your day or week and look at any larger task, ask yourself, “What could I productively do with that in 15-30 minutes?” I recently had a series of 8 written interview questions to respond to, and kept putting the task off because I knew it would take me hours to respond. To help with my procrastination I chose to answer one question between each coaching call over a period of a couple of days.

2. Focus your overload on one or two days.
On those days you use the bounded intervals of time to get the simpler tasks accomplished. Completing reports and responding to email are a couple of possibilities. Keeping your overload on one or two days allows you to open up the other days to get the deeper work done.

3. Schedule meetings at one end of your day as much as possible.
Try to schedule most appointments early in the day or in the late afternoon to keep as much of your day open as possible. I have a friend in sales who aggressively tries to schedule all sales calls in the morning and then uses their afternoon to prospect, follow up, and take care of the administrative parts of their job.

4. Build unscheduled time into your schedule.
I am a big fan of time blocks. One of the blocks I advocate is “strategy.” There are countless ways to use this time. The reason I believe so passionately it should be part of your schedule is that the block becomes permission for you to reflect, wonder, and think more deeply about where you are and where you want to go.

If you’re saying, “But Jones. The problem is not me. It’s my __________________ (insert ‘supervisor,’ ‘coworkers,’ ‘company culture,’ or any other objection), maybe it’s time you remembered the words of Margaret Wheatley: “Be brave enough to start a conversation that matters.” Aren’t you ready to have the satisfaction of knowing that your most important work is not being held hostage by an overloaded schedule?

3 Lessons We Learned from Phil Hansen’s Elevator Pitch

If you are familiar with Phil Hansen’s unique backstory, then you know that his road to becoming an accomplished artist and speaker was anything but simple. Throughout his career, he’s faced numerous obstacles, one of the most significant being a tremor in his hand — a limb that serves as a necessity for any artist. The tremor led to permanent nerve damage, which had a major impact on his career and personal life.

Phil recently stopped by the Eagles Talent office and participated in our “Elevator Pitch” segment in which he briefly summarized his background and journey.

Continue reading for lessons we learned from the artist during his five-minute elevator pitch:

 

1. Your initial reaction to a setback does not determine your success or failure.    

Upon learning that he developed a tremor in his hand, Phil dropped out of art school and stopped pursuing art for a while. As an artist with a specialty in pointillism, Phil had no idea how he would continue creating art if his condition prevented him from maintaining a steady drawing hand. It wasn’t until a doctor encouraged him to “embrace the shake” that Phil picked himself back up and began creating art again.

 

2. No two limitations are equal.

Why do we sometimes struggle with limitations but other times we overcome them? Speaking from his own experience, Phil explained that each limitation is made up of different components, including the limitation itself, the challenges that come with it, and our own perception of it.    

The challenges we face, Phil said, are created by our own perspective and belief. As a result, the key to transforming your limitations is to first work on transforming your beliefs. Altering your mindset and turning your beliefs into something positive will allow you to fully embrace your limitations and turn them into opportunities as Phil did.

3. Time is not always your enemy.

Time is a common limitation faced by artists and professionals alike. When a project takes way too much time, you may be tempted to rush through it or scrap it altogether. Too much time tends to make us impatient, which can hinder creativity.  

Phil came across this issue while creating his world-record holding connect-the-dots drawing. Although the project took about two and a half years to complete, Phil decided to embrace time rather than allow it to interfere with his creativity. The end result was an impressive piece of art composed of 52,901 individual dots, which goes to show that time is not always your enemy.

………………………………………………………………………………………………..

Win Phil Hansen’s Connect-the-Dots!

We’re giving away Phil’s world record holding connect-the-dots piece! Be sure to follow us on social media for further instructions on how you can win one of these for yourself.

Best Ways to Practice Self-Care at Work

This July 24th marks the 8th annual International Self-Care Day. Originally created by the International Self-Care Foundation, ISD acts as a device that “promotes self-care as a vital foundation of health.” While the long-lasting benefits of self-care are apparent in our personal lives, they also trickle down into other ares of our lives as well–including our careers.

Between busy schedules and grueling work days it may seem impossible to fit self-care into the equation, but we have a solution! The following simple, yet effective acts of self-care can be practiced in the workplace. These five tips will help improve your mood and overall health even on the busiest of workdays—Your coworkers will thank us!

1) A Change of Scenery = A Change of Mood

Don’t become a creature of habit! A change in scenery is an easy way to boost your mood and mental health. Eating your lunch outside or moving office meetings rooms with more natural light are simple acts that can change the overall mood of the day.

 

2) Make Daily To-Do Lists

Start your day by creating a To-Do list and prioritizing all the tasks (personal and professional) that you have to complete for the day. It will help you feel in-control of the day and make your schedule more manageable.

 

3) Practice Good Breathing Exercises

It’s easy to become overwhelmed at work, but that doesn’t mean we have to let our workloads hijack our mental health. Deep breathing exercises have been shown to reduce stress along with a plethora of other benefits including increased energy and better posture. Just five minutes at your desk can change the rest of your day.

 

4) Drink More Water

I know what you’re thinking: “Water, really?” It’s true! Staying hydrated improves physical performance while increasing energy levels. Keep refillable water bottle nearby at all times so that you can remain hydrated from nine to five.

 

5) Go For A Lunchtime Stroll

Try to avoid spending your lunch sitting at a desk or in a dimly-lit break-room. Even if you have a thirty minute lunch, spend ten of those minutes walking outside. The fresh air will naturally lift your spirits and the walk will give you a chance to recharge your brain for the second half of your day.

 

Fitting self-care into our hectic lives can be tough, but it’s important to maintain a healthy balance between work and our personal lives–that includes our physical and mental health. Click here for a list of life balance speakers that can help de-stress your organization and bring clarity to the chaos.
