Effective People and Time Management

Time Management Concept

Effective people work on their management perpetually. They do not only keep a continuing log and analyse it periodically, they set themselves deadlines for the important activities, based on their judgments of their discretionary time. One highly effective man I know keeps two such lists – one of the urgent and one of the unpleasant things that have to be done – each with a deadline. When he finds his deadlines slipping, he knows his time is again getting away from him.

Time is the scarcest resource. and unless it is managed, nothing else can be managed. The analysis of one’s time moreover, is the one easily accessible and yet systematic way to analyse one’s work and to think through what really matters in it.
