We all have the same amount of time in each day – 24 hours; no more and no less. It is impossible to “save” time. Time is ever-fleeting. The few seconds it took you to read these three sentences are gone, never to be recouped or recovered. You are faced with many projects, tasks, meetings, appointments, and people who consume your time.
Many tend to deal with so a number of minor interruptions that the big issues, which really should receive attention, remain untouched at the end of each day. How do you fit all of your responsibilities and commitments into each day so you have time for family, relaxation, and leisure activities, also? Why is it that some people can get much more accomplished in the 1,440 minutes allotted daily than others can achieve?
Saving time is impossible, but you can organize tasks, appointments, meetings, and projects so you are more productive. This enables you to manage your time. Being more organized, productive, and effective will net better results for the time and energy you invest, while eliminating – or at least lessening – your stress level.
This online, self-paced course shares techniques and technology to help set priorities, reduce the time required to complete tasks, eliminate your personal time robbers, and much more. It’s called Time Management. But it’s not really managing time; it’s managing the activities that take up your time.
