Mastering Time Management
Time Management refers to managing the time at one’s disposal in the most effective manner. This also involves the allocation of the optimal amount of time for the right activity. It is the process of planning how to divide time among various vital tasks.
We are all given twenty-four hours in a day, and yet we find that few people achieve greater number of tasks than others. How does that work? One may attribute it to hard work. But, in most cases, the answer is smart work, which basically implies achieving more done in less time. In doing so, we not only save a lot of time, but we eliminate a lot of issues we face in our daily lives.
Effective time management helps in reducing stress, in effective planning, in setting our goals and objectives, achieving greater control over our responsibilities and also in setting deadlines. When you understand the difference between being busy and being effective, you have achieved the first step in understanding time management. Failing to do so, on the other hand, has a lot of unfavourable consequences such as a dip in work quality, greater stress levels, and an inefficient workflow.
