Naturejobs Podcast: Planning your time and your goals

Naturejobs Podcast: Planning your time and your goals

Time planning and goal setting can make your work and career planning more efficient, as well as help you prioritise what it is you love to do.

In this first episode of the new Naturejobs podcast #NJPodcast, Planning your time and your goals, I, along with the Naturejobs team, explore the benefits of time and career planning.

It’s worth thinking about how to manage your time efficiently to how to avoid wasting any of it, wherever possible. In this episode David Payne, chief careers editor at Nature, speaks discovers some time management tips from Paul Marsh from Lightbulb, a UK training and management consultancy.

We then move from managing your time to managing what we put that time towards. The psychologist Edwin Locke, professor emeritus at the Robert H Smith School of Business at the University of Maryland, US, talks to me about his groundbreaking work in goal setting research, which began in the 1960’s and continues to this day.

And Lauren Celano from Propel Careers answers our first podcast #AskTheExpert science career question, posed by 3rd year PhD student, Marwa Hussain.
