How well do you manage your time? If you're like many people, your answer may not be completely positive!
Time is certainly one of our most precious resources as a manager and if we fail to manage it effectively it makes it so much harder to manage everything else.
Perhaps you feel overloaded, and you often have to work late to hit your deadlines. Or maybe your days seem to go from one crisis to another, and this is stressful and demoralising.
Many of us know that we could be managing our time more effectively; but it can be difficult to identify the mistakes that we're making, and to know how we could improve.
When we do manage our time well, however, we're exceptionally productive at work, and our stress levels drop. We can devote time to the interesting, high-reward projects that can make a real difference to a career. In short, we're happier.

|I would like to get rid of the very idea of 'Time Management'.
We cannot manage time, just how we allocate our workload within the time available and there is an easy escape route when people can externalise the problem by calling it 'Time Management' rather than internalising it as 'Organising MYself Properly'.
I have as many hours available to me as Einstein, Newton etc - it is how I choose to spend them that makes the difference.
