What is Time Management?
Time management is the process of planning and organising how to spend your time between particular activities. Time management allows you to get more done in less time, by working smarter when time is short and demands are high.
Time management includes balancing various personal demands, like your work, social life, family and hobbies, but failing to manage your time can damage how you spend your time and can cause procrastination and stress.
Do you ever come across people at work or in life who say, "I'm super busy today" or "I'm back to back today", why is it that they always seem so rushed? We all have 24 hours in one day, how do some manage their time better than others? The answer, of course, is how they managed and plan their time for that day or week.
Many high achievers block out time to focus on planning and executing their day or week ahead of them. There are many time management techniques which you can use to increase your ability to work productively when time is tight.
Being busy isn't the same as being effective so it's important to focus on results rather than the activities you perform. If you spread yourself to thin across multiple activities, you will achieve less if you were to focus on what activities would bring you the most results.
