About Time Management
Time management is a transient goal. The ultimate goals is however to optimize results that add value in our work and life as effectively and efficiently as possible. This follows that time is a resource that warrants harnessing it in productive directions: As a principle, time spent accomplishing results is better than time saved achieving nothing. Several myths surround time management:

     

Time can be saved! Wrong, time can either be utilized productively or it parishes away. Managing time is the end in itself! Wrong, time management is about doing right things at the right time. Doing loads of work in less time is time efficiency! Wrong, doing important things first is managing time efficiently. Doing things well in time is time effectiveness! Wrong, optimizing results in a given time is managing time effectively. Always doing things on scheduled time is time discipline! Wrong, doing things at the right time is discipline Firefighting is responding to the need of the hour! Wrong, planning ahead of time prevents firefighting

This training pack on Time Management will walk you through real process of managing your time; unravel your challenges in managing your time; help you identify habits you need to develop for managing your time to optimize your accomplishments.
I would like to dedicate this booklet to my Parents, Family members, the Institute of Banking and Finance (AIBF) and the Universities and other institutions where I studied and taught.

How I Manage Time: A Self-Talk
Instructions: Ask following questions to yourself…

1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10.

Do I prefer to do things that excite me? Do I prefer to do things that are easily done? Do I prefer to do things that are conveniently done? Do I prefer to do things that bring immediate rewards to me? Do I prefer to do things that catch others' attention? Do I prefer to do things that please others? Do I prefer to do things that I must do? Do I prefer to do things that others compel me to do? Do I prefer to do things that I see others doing? Do I prefer to do things that others dare to do?

If you have answered "YES" to most of the questions, this indicates that you prefer to consume most of your TIME doing things that tend to hamper your productivity quotient from improving any further.
