The New Year is off to a great start. We’re focusing on our resolutions and trying to accomplish many tasks in one day. With school and work projects, and family responsibilities too, the biggest question is always: How do you manage your time to be more efficient and to achieve your goals?
Recently a PR student and fellow PRStudChat community member, Keith Hayes, who attends Flagler College in St. Augustine Florida, reached out to me with a time management question. He wanted advice on “juggling a number of different projects at one time.” I emailed him my list of time management “Do’s” and “Don’ts.” However, to fully answer Keith’s question and a question on the minds of so many PR students and professionals, we decided to turn to our community for some best practices.
On Wednesday, February 15, 2012 at 8:30 p.m. EST, get ready to share your best tips on time management. Help your peers with your ideas about project management, apps to get you better organized, managing your calendar, and, most of all, selecting and committing to the right projects (and, not every project that comes along). I recently wrote a post about my favorite note taking software, Evernote, and how it helped me to write my new book. If you want to share some “advanced” tips now, on your note taking software, we’ll highlight your favorite(s) and ask you to elaborate with the community the night of February 16th. Please feel free to comment on this post, or to start a discussion in our LinkedIn Discussion Group.
We’re looking forward to hearing your thoughts on time management and how you find more efficient ways to juggle the many exciting opportunities and projects in 2012. We want it to be a busy, yet productive year. Join us for a dynamic discussion filled with helpful tools and resources to get you more organized. Hope to “see” you on the 15th.
A Little More About PRStudChat:
It began with a simple question asked by Angela Hernandez, then President of PRSSA at Central Michigan University (CMU). “Is PR Right for me?” A follow up blog post by PR 2.0 expert Deirdre Breakenridge inspired a series of direct messages on Twitter between Breakenridge and fellow PR industry pro, Valerie Simon. This was an important question and one that should be explored beyond one student or one blog post. Why not build a community to help students across the country, and even the globe, learn from the experience and perspective of industry professionals… A community where everyone can learn and grow together.
