How are you spending your time?

How are you spending your time?

Every Tuesday the SSC VP companies attend a talk given by a startup founder or executive to hear about their experiences. Following the talk, they walk through a reflective exercise that helps them think through the decisions they are making and the time they have spent in this program.

After listening to Justin Robinson and Nick Rellas' founding story of Drizly, the SSC VP companies walked through an exercise that helped them reflect on the way they have spent their time this summer.

Each company was given 5 minutes to go through their calendars and to break down the way they have spent their time at work. The companies were asked to categorize their time to really see where they were spending their time. Upon dissecting their calendars, the companies calculated the percentages of each category in their schedule.

You might not realize how much time you are spending in an area that is not that productive. This exercise is helpful because it allows you to reflect on where you are spending your time and make you feel more efficient with your time. No more wasted hours with a strategy like this!
