Self-Organisation and Time Management as a basic requirement for productivity and responsibility

What is this topic exactly about?

In order to manage the load of work, tasks, information and appointments nowadays, an effective self and time management is useful and necessary. It’s about the art of focusing on the essential and leaving out the irrelevant.

This difference needs to be found out through a thorough reflection.

After having identified the irrelevant things, they can be reduced and rigorously eliminated. This step can feel radical if taken consequently. You need to be brave in order to achieve compelling and consequent self-organisation.

But soon this step will lead to relief, improved concentration, productivity and the quality of life.

The pattern of constantly taking on more load is often lead by fears, e.g. fear of rejection, fear of losing the connection to “the herd” or the fear of missing out on something.

This phenomenon has increased especially in the younger generation due to digitalisation and social media networks.

In Silicon Valley, the birthplace of lifestyle and working life trends, they even have a name for this phenomenon.

FOMO: “FEAR OF MISSING OUT”. Luckily, there is already a counter movement called JOMO “JOY OF MISSING OUT”. The capability to say “no” and to focus was summarised by Steve Jobs:

“People think focus means saying yes to the thing you’ve got to focus on. But that’s not what it means at all. It means saying no to the hundred other good ideas that there are. You have to pick carefully. I’m actually as proud of the things we haven’t done as the things we have done.”

The goal is, therefore, to dissolve the fear of missing out (FOMO) and to replace it by the joy of not having to be part of everything (JOMO).

In this training, we identify, analyse and eliminate killers of time and productivity management and exchange them with positive impulses (reframing). Unfortunately, in many self-organisation and time management trainings, the focus lies on working on the level of behaviour. Often models are presented, which then should be used and implemented. This kind of learning is barely sustainable because if we are not aware of why we act like we act in order to dissolve the pattern at the root, the change doesn’t persist. These limitations are often anchored in our sub-consciousness.

Who asks themselves direction-oriented questions concerning their lives on a regular basis, does not run the risk of losing oneself out of sight. Too often people look back to realise that they missed out on redirecting their lives, on checking their habits and re-adjusting their course.
