SOS: A Time Management Framework.
Rees, Ruth
This paper proposes a framework for the management of time, under the rubric of "SOS" (Self-Organization-Scheduling), designed specifically for school officials. Underlying this framework is a belief that, in order to manage time, one must manage oneself within the bounds of the institution. Accordingly, three interdependent sets of practical suggestions are provided, in keeping with the threefold "SOS" sequence. The first component, self-awareness and self-discipline, entails documenting the activities of a normal work week and critically assessing this logbook for the appropriateness of the time devoted to each kind of activity. The second, organizational awareness, involves an assessment of individual time management in the context of ongoing organizational concerns and requirements--a synchronization of the organization and the individual. The third component, scheduling, involves planning, timetabling, implementing, and monitoring tasks for the organization as a whole. References are included. (TE)
