Chapter 8. Time management plan > Obstacles for creating a time management plan

Obstacles for creating a time management plan

You should prepare for the following obstacles when creating a time management plan:

  • Interruptions. Allow time for unexpected interruptions. If you don’t allow for unexpected interruptions such as impromptu meetings, you can become frustrated and fall behind schedule. Interruptions can be stressful and too much stress leads to decreased productivity.

  • Projects taking longer than anticipated. Overestimate the time it’ll take you to finish a project. You might encounter unforeseen problems with a project or find that a project is more demanding than you initially thought. If you plan extra time for projects, you’ll be able to stay on schedule and avoid overloading yourself with tasks you cannot accomplish in one day.

  • Crises. A crisis has the potential to divert you from your priorities for the day. Fortunately, creating a time management plan that accounts for possible mishaps can stop a crisis from happening in the first place. When creating your time management plan, include potential problems you might encounter and prioritize them. Then, develop steps to prevent crises or at least to limit their consequences.
