Most people have problems with Time Management and many of us, struggling to get our work done, end up working longer and longer hours. But these problems can be resolved. Time management is not about the time you spend working but about the way you spend your time working. Production line workers have very little choice about what they do but as managers and knowledge workers, we can choose how to spend our time.
Over the years the problems we face seem to have got worse rather than better:
- Mobile and Smart phones
- email and texts
- Social Networking and Tweeting
- Laptops and tablets
- Organisers and Personal Digital Assistants
