Abstract

Sure, you set goals and make to-do lists, but are they the right ones? Although you understand intellectually that time is your scarcest resource, you probably find it difficult to gain a strategic perspective on how you actually spend your time each workweek. Using a three-step plan - breaking your job responsibilities into distinct categories, asking yourself what percentage of time you should spend in each category, and checking for alignment with your superiors and colleagues - you can keep track of how your job expectations align with the time you give them during your week. This article includes a sample weekly time log for a management consultant.
