Have you ever found yourself saying, “It’s only five minutes?” Do you struggle with valuing your time? Well, let's talk about it!
“It’s Only Five Minutes”
Five minutes late to work
Five minutes shopping online
Five minutes watching TikTok
Five minutes on a phone call unrelated to work
Long lunch? Leave early? Waste five more minutes? This is equivalent to 15 minutes that wasn't valued
What Harm Could 15 Minutes do in the Workplace?
One person wasting 15 minutes a day
There are 250 working days in the year
A loss of 3,750 minutes or… 62 ½ hours per year
Invictus currently has 42 employees working here
That adds up to a loss of 2,625 hours per year. That equals just over 65 weeks wasted per year. The equivalent of 15 months of wasted time.
Let’s Talk About Some Simple Steps to Value Your Time:
Plan your next day at the close of the day
Have a to-do list
Organize your workplace
Organize your computer files
Prioritize based on the importance not ease
Batch tasks into blocks of time
Values alignment helps the organization as a whole to achieve its core mission. When values are out of alignment, people work towards different goals, with different intentions and with different outcomes. This can be damaging to work relationships, productivity, job satisfaction and creative potential. Most people who respect and value time can learn faster and work faster. They become more focused and pay more attention to their work.
