Chapter 12. Time Management > Chapter Summary

Chapter Summary

Procrastination and poor time-management skills can contribute to your level of workplace stress. Procrastination is fueled by low frustration tolerance and irrational thoughts. You can overcome procrastination by recognizing and replacing irrational beliefs, remembering that attitude change follows behavior change, and breaking tasks into doable chunks. Time management can be enhanced by following Covey's system of scheduling your priorities rather than prioritizing your schedule. Divide work tasks based on urgency and importance. Increase the time you spend in proactive undertakings, thereby preventing and minimizing problems and crises, which will help lower your stress level. To facilitate your ability to determine what is really important and therefore worthy of high priority, spend time thinking about and composing your personal mission statement to help guide your decisions regarding how to best use your time. Using your time well will go a long way toward lowering your stress level.
