9780749429638: Instant Time Management (Instant (Kogan Page))

This lively inspirational guide will help anyone make the most of that rare commodity - time. Like other books in the Instant series, this book begins with a few short introductory chapters on managing yourself (everything from highly structured time management solutions to simple ideas); managing other people (learn how to deal with interruptions and things that disrupt your day); managing the world (shows how to deal with external factors that can either help or hinder your day); The main section of the book comprises around 70 exercises - each taking 5 to 20 minutes to complete. The exercises can be used incrementally to build excellence in time management - one step at a time. Each individual exercise is rated in terms of usefulness to life, work, self and others and also scored on a ""fun-or-chore"" scale.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

Time management is a discipline that everyone acknowledges is worthwhile while simultaneously ignoring it. There seems to be something in the human spirit that rebels against time management, despite realising the benefits. It's rather like eating the right food - we can acknowledge all the benefits of eating lots of fruit and vegetables, we can even enjoy eating fruit and vegetables - and still pig out on junk food. This ability to ignore time management is very sad. There are plenty of variations on the theme of 'so much to do, so little time to do it in'. Few of us have time to get everything we really want to do completed. Few of us manage to effectively balance work and home life, business and pleasure, stress and stress relief. Good time management is more than a nit-picking discipline that will appeal to those who like everything in its place, it is a vehicle for getting more done and having a better life. If only it can be made practical.
