Colour If you are privileged enough to see the former


SBM and school leadership consultant Nickii Messer present on how to improve your work management, she may suggest a simple but effective technique to organise your paperwork into four different coloured files. I’ve used:


PRIORITY ONE Today


PRIORITY TWO This week


PRIORITY THREE This month


PRIORITY FOUR ‘Term 7’, where I put all my items for quieter time during the holidays


This method has helped me clear my desk of


clutter and prioritise my tasks. My Priority Two file tends to be a bit bigger than the rest, so I stick Post-it notes on different tasks, with dates I’m going to work on them. This helps me bring forward the work into the Priority One file. It also stops me sneaking ahead and doing a piece of work I like the look of, rather than the work I’m putting off. At the start of the day I review my files, and on a Friday afternoon I review them again, ready for the following week.

‘TIME IS FREE, BUT IT’S PRICELESS. YOU CAN’T

Blocking My diary used to quickly fill up with meetings, but I was left with no time to do the work the meetings generated, so I ended up completing it in my own time. Crazy! Now, I block out my diary in order to complete pieces of work as per the Priority filing system. The above quote from Harvey Mackay is so


YOU’RE THE PILOT’ Michael Altshuler


‘THE BAD NEWS IS TIME FLIES; THE GOOD NEWS IS


true. I have, on occasion, regretted spending time on a task, or watching a bad film, or being with negative people. That is time you cannot get back. Not that anyone can get time back, but what I mean is that it was a waste of time. Our time does have a value in terms of the hourly rate we’re paid to perform our roles. Have you even been at a meeting and worked out in your head the cost of all those people meeting for that hour? Did they convert the value of that meeting into achieving a goal or generating more income? It’s certainly a reflective exercise. So spend a bit of time reviewing your work


practices. How can you use your time better? Do you need to improve how you run meetings? Reflect on your approach to work. If a colleague presented the same issues to you, how would you go about advising them to make adjustments?
