Video Script:

Hi! My name is _________ and I’m excited to present a time management concept today to enhance your productivity at work.

Time is a limited resource

To be more effective time managers, we must first understand our goal.  

Do we need to be more efficient or more effective?

Time Efficiency: performing a task in the best way (with maximum productivity) while wasting minimal effort.

•  Example: marking as many items as possible off a “to do”list quickly while using minimal energy

Time Effectiveness: focusing on specific tasks to achieve a goal. The focus is more so around a purpose or end goal, which may require using additional/extraneous resources.

•  Example: completing those items on a “to do” list first that help achieve your end goal

Pareto Principle: named after Italian Economist Vilfredo Pareto, asserts that roughly 80% of work-related output comes from only 20% of your time

•  But many people tend to spread out work evenly instead of focusing on most important tasks

Take away:Time Effectiveness is critical, as it helps us focus on tasks that will have the biggest impact  

Wrap up: e.g., use a short story to illustrate, pick an ending statement.
