TIME MANAGEMENT is a process of planning and controlling amount of time spent on activities to improve productivity.
Juggling between personal and professional life can be challenging for most people.
"Not managing your time and making excuses are two bad habits. Don t put them both together by claiming you don t have the time ." Bo Bennett
Time management strategies include, organization of making a list of tasks, CONTROLLING BAD HABITS, BUILDING TASTE FOR GOOD HABITS, UNDERSTANDING CHALLENGES, PRIORITIES, DELEGATING tasks, MULTI TASKING vs FOCUS, MOTIVATION, DETERMINATION, and EFFICIENCY
Just as old habits are hard to break new habits are difficult to adopt unless we repeat them.
"Your net worth to the world is usually determined by what remains after your bad habits are subtracted from your good ones." Benjamin Franklin
It s important to remove useless task from the to-do list before setting the priorities.
"The key is not to prioritize what s on your schedule, but to schedule your priorities." Stephen Covey
PROCRASTINATION (taswif) is delaying the good actions. “One who does taswif (procrastination) will perish” hadith
Easy way is called rukhsa and difficult way is called azima. If the person is healthy and capable then it’s better for him to chose azima.
When you do MULTITASKING and not FOCUS, mind is forced to do time sharing. Think you can talk on the phone, send an instant message and read your e-mail all at once? Stanford researchers say even trying may impair your cognitive control.
The PRIORITIES are low hanging fruits
80% of important tasks can be completed in 20% of the available time. Since remaining 20% of the tasks take up 80% of the time, it is recommended that tasks that can be done quickly should given the higher priority.
