Time seems to be the only element in the world that cannot be retrieved once it is lost. It is also a fair gift given to all of us. No matter how rich or how poor we are, from blue collar workers to senior managers of big or small organisations, we all have 24 hours in a day to spare – no more, no less.
How is it that we often complain of not having enough time to do other tasks in our to-do list, despite all the technology purportedly developed to help us save time and increase our productivity?
Basically, time management is a skill that we can develop over time with constant discipline and consistency. It will include the following:
- planning and organising
- setting goals and objectives
- delegation of responsibilities
- setting deadlines
- prioritising activities according to their importance
- right allocation of time to the right task
