UNV 504 Week 1 Time Monitoring Worksheet

 

Details:

This assignment will help you develop an important skill for college and everyday life – time management. For this assignment, you will keep an informal time log in which you note all your activities for 3 days, from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m. Then, you will review your activities to identify times when you were not productive. You should use this information for planning ways to make better use your time.

Part 1: Monitor Your Time in Hourly Increments

  1. Use “Time Monitoring Worksheet” to write down what you did each hour of the day, starting at 5 a.m. and ending at 10 p.m. Even if you do not get up until 10 a.m., you still need to record 5 a.m. to 10 a.m. as “sleep.”
  2. Do not overdo the recording; record the primary activity for the hour. At most, record two activities per hour.

Part 2: Reflection

On day four, review your completed “Time Monitoring Worksheet” in order to take a serious look at how you use your time each day.

Write a reflection (250-500 words) on how you manage your time. Include the following in your reflection:

  1. What are some things you can do more efficiently?
  2. What are the main items/tasks that take up most of your time?
  3. Do you see areas in your daily routine where you can make adjustments to become more productive?
  4. Do you have any “black holes” that unnecessarily suck up a lot of your time?

In the textbook, Colangelo states that “education and experience will teach you how far you can trust your intuition” (p. 26). Entrepreneurs make decisions that impact organizations both internally and externally. In such a position, how do you make decisions when they conflict with your personal ethics and instincts? What personal values and ethical standards do you consider most important when making decisions? Provide an example that you have experienced or observed that supports the idea of trusting your intuition and ethical beliefs.

Successful companies try to maintain a positive relationship in the community in which they do business. In the textbook, Colangelo explains that representing your core values in the community wins loyalty to your brand and attracts new customers (p. 62). Entrepreneurs should remember that part of a company’s stewardship includes socially responsible actions in the community.

In what ways do organizations gain trust and show they are socially responsible stewards? How is trust lost and how are reputations damaged? Discuss examples of companies that are socially responsible and have earned the trust of the community. Conversely, discuss other companies that have lost the trust of communities and damaged their reputations through social irresponsibility. What will you do to ensure that your organization maintains a positive reputation in the community?
