Time Management – Part 2 – Professional Development Topics

Taking A Step – Time Management – Part 2 – Professional Development Topics    

The push/pull of the race against time

by Danielle Gault

Speed and productivity

When a strong extravert is around a quiet introvert, the tension of opposite preferences in processing information can be experienced quite differently by each. While extroverts process their information by talking and interacting with others, the introverts are producing their results through quiet introspection.

Both people are moving projects along, but the process for speed and productivity looks quite different. Interpretations of differences can affect team synergy: the extravert may interpret the quietness of the introvert as standoffish, while the introvert often sees extroverts as superficial people who fill the air with a lot of talk instead of really producing results.

Similarly, strong Sensing-Judging ori­ented people want structure and plans when they are involved in implementing activities. Intuitive-Perceiving oriented people, however want to gather addi­tional information to be certain they have covered all the possibilities.

The inherent tension of these oppo­sites can show up in how jobs and tasks get handled. One person is pulling for possibilities while the other is pushing for closure.

How can understanding your preferences help you in your time management strategies?

Stay awake, aware, and alert and strive to lead a well-tempered life – a life that possesses both hardiness and flexibility.  The good news is that once you are awake, it’s hard to go to sleep again, but if you do, do it on purpose and prepare yourself for the consequences.
