As a self-learner, you are also the project manager.
Project managers are faced with making choices. There might be a lot of good ideas, but there are only so many hours in the day. When you running a meeting with many departments who all have different priorities, you need a way to bring them to consensus to agree on what projects will be worked on.
Here are some techniques for making those choices.
1. Make a quadrant chart and put each idea in the chart.
2. Set up a calendar with time allotted for studying. If any idea comes that will take longer than 5 minutes to handle, open the calendar and schedule it for a future time slot.
3. Brain storm what projects could be worked on. With a short list (say 7 items), go down the list comparing two of the items at a time. Between project A and project B, which is more important. Count the votes. By the time you have compared all, count up the votes. This is your priority list.
4. Create a checklist and track what time you spend on what type of activity. Simply tick off every time you do something, to see where you spend your time.
