I was fascinated to see that the above link on the Training Zone website had received almost 3000 reads – an incredible number by any measure.
It just shows the extent of the interest in effective time management; an almost universally felt ‘problem’.
Having spent much time myself helping people with their time management challenges, I would echo the sentiments and advice of this writer. In summary effective time management can be achieved by sticking to the four cornerstones of:
1) Preparation: time spent in preparation saves time in execution
2) Saying ‘No’: requires a balancing and committed ‘yes’ to the truly important things
3) Being ‘concrete’: planning what exactly is required and by when
4) Delegating: being able to retain control and engage the best efforts in others
