Take Five: Time Management – 24 Jan 2014

calendarThere are many methods of considering, examining and quantifying how we use our time, and they all can be extremely valid. However, there are a few fundamental questions which should be addressed before this course can be effective.

Albert Einstein once said that the definition of insanity was doing the same thing and expecting a different result, and so this is true of how we use our time. Do we really want to change? Are we prepared to learn new habits?

Taking time to look at how we use time might appear to be a rather strange concept, but arguably not as strange as thinking that time is something that we can somehow manufacture.

Participants should leave with greater clarity about what goals are important to them and, furthermore, how they might reach them. Through discussion, exercise and coaching, participants will gain a greater insight into how their values and attitudes relate to their choices, and how realistic those choices might be.

This event is open to all taught postgraduates at the University of Edinburgh
