Diary Detox® uses five simple steps to help you or your team to take a step back out of the weeds, look at how they’re spending their time today and reassess which activities adds value, now and in the future. That extra space is where you and your teams growth begins.
Using the Diary Detox Categories and colour as seen below – Green, Amber, Red, Brown and Blue – your calendar will be turned into a heat map, a mirror, that will show you what you’re actually doing and the effect it’s having on you, your team, your customers and your managers.
This process in awakening and is the start of positive change.
Having a crystal clear understanding of what results you want you to achieve is critical. In some respects, this is the most important (and most simple) part of the Diary Detox.
Understand your Diary Detox Targets (goals) will immensely increase the chance of achieving them. They are a vital part of keeping you and your team focussed on the outcome.
The key to sustained results is in forming a habit.
The Weekly Diary Detox (supported by the Diary Detox® App) combines lean-leadership and time-management to ensure that just 30-minutes a week will remove pointless meetings, get you out of your inbox, minimise needless interruptions and get at least a day back in your diaries, every week.
RED is for DOING, transactional stuff. Stuff that needs to be done but could be handed over to someone else. Stuff that wastes time if you do to much of it yourself.
AMBER is for time spent MANAGING. Checking to see if everything and everyone are as they should be, and making sure that changes if they’re not. This is the stuff that keeps your organisation where it is and what manages risk.
GREEN is for LEADING, improving everything and everyone, including you.
BROWN is for FLOATING. This adds no value whatsoever. Just like those endless meetings that achieve so little.
BLUE is for LIVING. You're looking after your mental, physical and spiritual wellbeing.
the actions you take today will engineer your results for tomorrow
