  • What exactly is time management? • Time is a set of principles, practices, skills, tools and systems working together to help you get more value out of your time with the aim of improving the quality of your life.
  • Remember • The important point isn’t how many things do you accomplish but making sure that you are working on the right things, the things that truly need to be done, so you get better results. In another case you can spend a lot of time working on the low-priority busywork that just keep you busy.
  • Why?
  • Why do we need time management? • Time is a unique and precious resource that you need in order to do work, accomplish your goals, spend time with your loved ones and enjoy every thing that life has to offer.
  • • You have a heavy workload and want to find ways to become more effective so you can get more done in less time.
  • • Feel stressed out and want to find ways to do less and enjoy more.
  • • Feel focused and in control of your time, instead of feeling like you rush madly from one activity to another until you fall into bad exhausted every night.
  • Consequences of time management • Get a lot more done in less time. • Feel more relaxed. • Focused and in control of your life.
  • How can we become time managers? • Write things down: it’s a mistake to use your memory to keep a lot of things. Use a to-do list to write things down is a great way to take control of your projects, tasks and keep yourself organized.
  • • Prioritize your list: focus on the important thing.
  • • Plan your week : spend 15-30 minutes at the beginning of each week to plan your schedule focusing on the urgent tasks. • Carry a notebook wherever you go so you can capture your thoughts, if you wait too long to write them down you could forget.
  • • Learn to say No: Many times we say yes when we should be saying no. Learn to say no to low priority requests and you will free up time to spend on things that are more important.
  • • Think before acting: before saying yes or no, it will prevent you from taking on too much work and the regret.
  • • Continuously improve yourself learning new things ,developing your natural talents and abilities so you will enjoy your time and may be get promoted. • Think about what you are giving up to do your regular activities, to maintain your current activities.
  • • Evaluate your goal: write down your progress for each goal to make sure you are on the right track. • Don’t be a perfectionist: some tasks don’t require your best efforts, sending a short email to a colleague, for example, shouldn’t take any more than a few minutes. Learn to distinguish between tasks that deserve to be done excellently and tasks that just need to be done.
  • Remember • We have… 24 hours per day * 60 minutes per hour * 60 seconds per minutes =86,400 seconds
  • • We have a lot of time to spend in different ways, but it’s important to make balance between all of them.
