Time management skills for increased productivity and effectiveness
“Once you have mastered time, you will understand how true it is, that most people overestimate what they can accomplish in a year and underestimate what they can achieve in a decade!..”
Are you a puppet of your environment or will you master your own time?
You are drowning in work! Do you not see the wood for the trees and do you lack the time to get everything straight? You would wish that everyone would just take a holiday for a month, so that you would be able to get rid of all of the paperwork, that is stacking on your desk! You are fearing excessive stress or maybe you are reaching a burn-out already.
It is vital to understand the truth in the quote above; you have much more time than you think; learning to set priorities and by dealing effectively and efficiently with time, you will regain control over your work and, more importantly, over yourself.
Managers usually have an overly filled calendar. The short term activities continuously require your attention. Consequently, more structural business is left undone and insufficient time can be spent to coach and counsel your employees.
