The essence of time management time management is not a difficult task. Effective time management boils down to two crucial aspects of our work: discipline and organization. If we have discipline to realise that we are wasting time and stop doing it, and if we focus on efficient use of time, we can dramatically reduce the amount we lose.

If you spend two minutes on the phone and five minutes reading a marketing plan, record it. Equally, determine how much time spends on the Internet reading about Paris Hilton, looking at how an apple pie or wandering on local sports problems. Keeping a log will give you an idea of the amount of time you wasted and what squandered it. The same If you are honest with your registration, your results will surprise you.

You don’t want to your registration to become a distraction and waste of time as such. The good thing would be to be a general idea of how you spend your time and spend it. Stop activities that make you lose time with these tools a good time management requires that you know things will lose time more likely and to stop doing these things once start. If it keeps a record it will serve as a reminder of this exercise.
