Hi,Time Management is the most important aspect in today's hard working life, but the main problem arises when we get too possesive about it and take it as a burden as to "how will I manage my time?" First and for most important part of it is dont take it as a burden just as people say "waqt bahut kam hai aur kaam bahut zyada".The time is same for each and every one. Love your work and the time you have you have been provided with. keep you mind peaceful.

The best way to mange your time is make a list of all your daily activities and sum up their time and deduct by24. This method will help you mange your time.
The most important thing is to know what you have to do each day. so plan out all the activities,then time management is easy when know what is to be done. so out of 24 hours you can easily spare time for each activity .

Important points:

Be peaceful.

Tips for prioritising your time
There are a number of simple guiding principles to follow when prioritising how you will spend your time whether at work or in your personal life. Listed below are a few of these principles that you can apply to your own situation:
Pareto's Law: The 80/20 Rule
Paretos Law helps us to prioritise our time more effectively to ensure we focus on doing the right things at the right time. The concept works on the premise that:
80% of what we achieve takes 20% of our time
80% of what we achieve takes 20% of our effort
We therefore need to focus on the important 20% of our job role and ensure our core activities relate to achieving the business objectives. Taking some time to review how you spend your time in say one week, could help you to identify aspects of work that you get involved with that do not provide real benefit to the organisation or could be delegated to someone else whose role is more suited to the type of work.
In order to review your ...more

Hi,

Categorize your activities into the following;
a. Most Important & Urgent
b. Not so important
c. Least important

Now allocate your available time amongst the above activities with the highest time allocation for category (a). Ensure that you complete your activities within the allocated time.

Follow this above and see the difference.

2. Now comes prioritising the tasks. A minimum of two types of priorities exists for each task. According to its Importance and Urgency. There are possibilities that an important work can be put away for the time being. Same way, an unimportant thing may become too much urgent. Weigh down the Importance and urgency of each task. Then try to complete the task which seems to be most urgent and most important.
3. Prepare a table with 3 rows and 3 columns. The columns show the importance and the rows show the urgency. So, the task with Importance as 1 and urgency as 1 goes to the cell(1,1). The task with importance as 2 but urgency as 1 goes to the cell(1,2) and so on. In that way, you can see that the most priority tasks are gro ...more
