Being tied down so much to work because there is no other option results to so many negative repercussions, one of which is the inability to really do the things that one would enjoy most. The routine of waking up each morning knowing that one would go back to the same work and workplace. Stressing the self out with the tasks at hand. An individual who has invested in a time management course is likely to succeed, as there is already the realization for its need. Colleges and universities are also offering time management courses to its student to help each cope with current requirements and in preparation for their professional lives. If you are like most of us, taking away the time required for sleeping and rest, personal hygiene and grooming, time needed for meals and snacks, travelling and other personal necessities will leave you with 90 hours for the week that you can divide for work and leisure. Depending on how it is perceived and used, the 90-hour window spells much of the difference between planning and control or being on the other side of efficiency and production. How Time Management at Work Works Seldom are worthwhile things done that are not immediately met with problems that endangers its completion or threatens to derail it just as it is begun. Most projects when started will start smooth enough. Immediately afterwards something discouraging happens. Ask any businessman for example. We all have that at the back of our heads, unwritten, unspoken and often unheeded. But for all that it is worth, my friend, here goes: - What is your priority? What do you want to accomplish out of this school year? What marks will you want to see that will be your gift to yourself? - Once you have decided on that, compute the time that you have for the week. Limit giving in to temptation of engaging in small talk when priorities are set and being worked on. Respect you decision in planning and you are on your way. Delegate. Be realistic about the things that you can and can not do. Delegate the things that you must. Floating work There are tasks that you can do anywhere that doing them now will only complicate your main task at hand.
