The Terrible Truth About Time

Benjamin Franklin aptly said 'Dost thou love life? Then waste not time for that is the stuff life is made of.' Often it happens that you feel so tired of the break neck speed that you zoom through your personal and professional duties. A little time management can make things much easier and enable you to enjoy life better.

There are several ways you can ensure that you get more out of your day. The key to effective time management lies in planning and prioritizing things. When you wake up in the morning and find a huge array of chores that you need to perform your first reaction is to panic.

Time management ensures true personal development of self in life. In the words of Annie Dillard 'How you spend your time; is how you spend your life.' To save time, try to prioritize your work in order of importance. Otherwise, your efforts may be lost in a maze of unimportant chores which could have been postponed while important deadlines are being missed and forgotten. This makes time management one of the basic tenets of corporate training.

There are more solutions to your time woes. Work is more likely to get done on time when it is delegated. Try not to do everything on your own just to prove yourself super efficient. Teamwork will materialize your goals faster.

When working on high priority work, focus only on one thing at a time. When you are pressed for time, multitasking might seem tempting,but it will only make your work stretch longer and might even cause you to overlook the finer nuances of the job. This sometimes means holding off on e-mails, phone calls, and other everyday tasks.

Last but not the least; try to take a break once in a while. Monotony slows down the pace of fruitful work and if you have been slogging over the same thing since morning, taking a mid-morning coffee break can really rejuvenate you. Clearing your mind for just a few minutes can often help bring fresh and innovative ideas to the forefront.
