  • 23. TIME MANAGEMENT <ul><li>There is no mystery about managing time. </li></ul><ul><li>Everyone has 24 hrs each day and 168 hrs each week to eat, sleep, work, relax, exercise, attend class, and study. </li></ul><ul><li>There is nothing magical about getting the most from these hrs; it just takes planning. </li></ul><ul><li>But TM does require self- discipline and control until the behavioral changes are internalized and TM becomes an everyday habit. </li></ul><ul><li>Plans and schedules for managing time are useless if one does not follow them. </li></ul>

  • 26. <ul><li>“ STUDY WHILE OTHERS ARE SLEEPING, </li></ul><ul><li>WORK WHILE OTHERS ARE LOAFING, </li></ul><ul><li>PREPARE WHILE OTHERS ARE PLAYING, </li></ul><ul><li>AND SOW SEEDS, </li></ul><ul><li>WHILE OTHERS ARE WASTING TIME”. </li></ul><ul><li>William A. Ward. </li></ul>
  • 27. TIME MANAGEMENT <ul><li>Effective time management necessitates a sense of balance. </li></ul><ul><li>- Either extreme along the time management skills </li></ul><ul><li>continuum can be problematic. </li></ul><ul><li>- On one hand, perfect time management skills do not </li></ul><ul><li>make one a perfect student or employee. </li></ul><ul><li>- On the other hand, poor time management skills do not </li></ul><ul><li>make one a stooge. </li></ul><ul><li>Then why bother with time management? </li></ul><ul><li>The main reason for managing time is to provide structure to one’s life and, in turn, piece of mind. </li></ul><ul><li>Time management skills are your abilities to recognize and solve personal time management problems.The goal of time management workshop is to show you what you can do to improve your skills. </li></ul>
  • 28. <ul><li>With good TM skills you are in control of your time and your life, of your stress and energy levels. </li></ul><ul><li>You make progress at work. You are able to maintain balance between your work, personal, and family lives. </li></ul><ul><li>You have enough flexibility to respond to surprises or new opportunities. </li></ul><ul><li>All TM skills are learnable. </li></ul><ul><li>If you already know how you should be managing your time, but you still do not do it, don’t give up. What you may be overlooking is the psychological side of your TM skills, psychological obstacles hidden behind your personality. </li></ul>
  • 29. <ul><li>Value of time cannot be measured in terms of money only </li></ul><ul><li>To realize the value of ONE YEAR, ask a student who failed in his/her class. To realize the value of ONE MONTH ask a mother who gave birth to a premature baby. To realize the value of ONE WEEK, ask the editor of a weekly magazine. To realize the value of ONE HOUR, ask the mother who is waiting for her child. To realize the value of ONE MINUTE, ask a person who has missed a plane. To realize the value of ONE SECOND ask the person who has just avoided an accident. To realize the value of ONE MILLISECOND, ask a person who has lost a goal medal in the Olympics. </li></ul>
  • 30. <ul><li>Importance of time </li></ul><ul><li>A day comprises two 12-hours periods, a total of 24hours. An hour consists of 60seconds. Seconds are sub-divided on a decimal system into hundredth of a second or millionth of a second. There are 86,400 seconds in a day. A second is officially defined as 9,192,631.770 oscillations of a cesium,133 atoms in an atomic clock. Scientists have divided a second into the following parts: </li></ul><ul><li>Decisecond(one tenth of a second) the blink of an eye. </li></ul><ul><li>Centisecond(one hundredth of a second) the time it takes for a stroke of lighting to strike. </li></ul><ul><li>Nanosecond(one billionth of a second) a home computer takes 2 to 4 nanosecond to execute one software transaction. </li></ul><ul><li>Picosecond(one trillion of a second) the shortest period of time that can be measured accurately. </li></ul>
  • 31. <ul><li>Time is always running out……. </li></ul><ul><li>Time cannot be manufactured. </li></ul><ul><li>Time cannot be purchased. </li></ul><ul><li>Time cannot be retrieved. </li></ul><ul><li>Time wasted is lost forever. </li></ul><ul><li>Time cannot be created whereas time can create everything. </li></ul>
  • 32. <ul><li>Just 10 years </li></ul><ul><li>We have limited time at our disposal. N average person gets only 10 years of active life to make or unmake his/her career. Here we see how an ordinary man/woman spends his/her whole life(we have taken the average of 75yeras): </li></ul><ul><li>Time spent to attain educational qualifications and start career: 25years. </li></ul><ul><li>Time spent in sleeping in the remaining 50years(one third of our life):17years. </li></ul><ul><li>Time wasted in routine activities like taking bath,getting ready for work, traveling from home to office and back to home and for others social obligations:12years. </li></ul>
  • 33. <ul><li>Time of active life spent on Sundays and holidays:8years. </li></ul><ul><li>Time of active life wasted by illness:3years . </li></ul><ul><li>Total time spent: 65years. </li></ul><ul><li>That leaves us with only about 10years of creative time in our entire life, I.e. 87,600 hours. So there are only 10active years in which one can either make or unmake ones career. So every hour of the day and every minute of it counts.one success in life depends upon the time one saved and spent wisely. </li></ul>
  • 34. EFFECTIVE TIME MANAGEMENT BENEFITS <ul><li>Reduce frustration . Many of the frustrating situations can be avoided with effective planning and organizing techniques. </li></ul><ul><li>Get a sense of achievement and piece of mind . Much of dissatisfaction and anxiety comes from that you are not sure where going, or you feel like you are not going nowhere. </li></ul><ul><li>Overcome the guilt . We are often burdened by subconscious guilt for those undone things we should be doing or should have done. </li></ul><ul><li>Increase your energy level . The undone things circulating in your mind cost you much more time and energy than the things you have done or are doing. </li></ul><ul><li>Get more of quality time . There are many things that don’t get you much forward, but you still have to do them to survive. </li></ul>
  • 35.
