Transcript of Time Managament
of Time Management
– Managing your time can directly reduce your stress level. Fewer surprises. Fewer tight deadlines. Less rushing from task-to-task and place-to-place.
Get More Done
– Of course, being productive is one of the main goals of time management. When you are aware of what you need to do, you are able to better manage your workload. You will be able to get more (of the right tasks) done in less time.
– Being organized results in less rework and mistakes. Forgotten items, details, and instructions lead to extra work. How often do you have to do a task more than once? Or make an extra trip because you forget something?
More Free Time
– We can’t create more time, but you can make better use of it by managing your time. Even simple actions like shifting your commute or getting your work done early can produce more leisure time in your life.
Less Wasted Time
– When you know what you need to do, you waste less time in idle activities. Instead of wondering what you should be doing next, you can already be a step ahead of your work.
– Being on top of your time and work produces more opportunities. The early bird always has more options. As well, luck favors the prepared.
Improves Your Reputation
– Your time management reputation will proceed you. At school and in life you will be known as reliable. No one is going to question whether you are going to show up, do what you say you are going to do, or meet that deadline.
– A common misconception is that time management takes extra effort. To the contrary, proper time management makes your life easier. Things take less effort, whether it is packing for that trip or finishing up that project.
More Time Where it Matters
– Managing your time is allotting your time where it has the most impact. Time management allows you to spend your time on the things that matter most to you.
Between Happiness and Time Management
Killingsworth’s work has uncovered the fact that we are substantially less happy when we indulge in mind-wandering. The activity we are engaged in almost doesn’t matter. Being on vacation in Jamaica isn’t an opportunity to mind-wander—that only makes us unhappy. The same applies to a boring meeting that’s going nowhere.
Why Is It Important?
it. In the sense that time is distributed equally to all, each of us gets 24 hours a day.
it. Time marches on, you can’t hold time up to take a bit longer.
it. Time can’t be saved to be used up at another time when you might feel you need it more.
What Is Time Management?
Time management is the ability to plan and control how you spend the hours in your day to effectively accomplish your goals. Poor time management can be related to procrastination as well as problems with self-control. Skills involved in managing your time include planning for the future, setting goals, prioritizing tasks, and monitoring where your time actually goes.
Islamic Perspective on:
Time Management &
If only life was that simple. Time Management can be as easy or difficult as you want to make it. The key word is control, and to what extent you are really serious about managing your time and therefore your life. In many cases, individuals expect someone to ‘teach’ them how to manage their time and wave a wand that will magically deliver the secret of life!! However the willingness to manage your time and become more effective both personally and professionally, is entirely the result of your attitude and the extent that you are prepared to do something about what to many is an increasingly frustrating workplace problem. Time management is a behaviour around which you can learn skills, however there is something else that has a great impact on the way we view time management and that is the way we prefer to work in general.

Csikszentmihalyi discovered a similar result: that we are happiest (and most productive) when we are able to enter the flow state—an ecstatic experience of total concentration that requires our complete attention due to its difficulty.
“Look in the mirror and you will see your biggest time waster”
( John Adair)
1. You can't manage time, you can only manage yourself.
There are 24 hours in each day. You can't change that. As long as you focus on managing time - searching for systems, lists, and tools - you are ignoring the real issue: how to manage yourself.
2. "Too much to do" and "Not enough time" are victim words.
Every time you repeat those words, you are letting yourself off the hook for managing yourself. You are blaming circumstances beyond your control and subscribing to victimhood. Of course there is too much to do! Of course there is not enough time! Get used to it!
3. Too many priorities means no priorities.
You can not have too many priorities. By definition. Priorities are those top few tasks that deserve attention next. If you have too many, you have none. You have to know your top few priorities at any time.
4. The more priorities you have, the less you will accomplish.
If you have 2-3 priorities, you will complete 2-3 tasks. If you have 4-10, you will complete 1-2. If you have more than 10, you will complete none. The more items on your list, the more time you spend messing with the list, jumping from task to task, and feeling paralyzed by indecision.
5. Your to-do lists are crazy.
Pull all your lists together. Then try estimating the time needed to accomplish all of those tasks. What are the chances that the total exceeds all available time? Even if you shrink the numbers, convinced that you will suddenly be faster and more focused than ever, I bet the total exceeds the hours in a day.
6. Your to-do lists are incomplete.
Not only are your lists crazy long, they are incomplete. Think about it. Have you included enough time for meetings, assignments, and tests? Questions for your teachers? Time to sleep, eat, exercise, relax, and call your friend? Everything. Now how do those total hours look? And what are the chances you've anticipated everything likely to pop up? Face it, there are not enough hours in a day!
7. It's time to accept the fact that you won't finish everything.
As long as you believe you can - or need to! - finish everything, you will be frustrated and ineffective. And as long as you remain in denial, the longer you will avoid making the tough decisions about your top priorities.
It's time to bite the bullet, narrow your top priorities list to 2 - 3 items at any one time, schedule time on your calendar to tackle those items, and devote the rest of your energy to focusing and getting them done. Quit wasting so much time and energy listing, managing, and prioritizing the things that deserve to fall through the cracks.
