Striking Statistic

 

In the last 20 years, time working has increased by 15% and time in leisure has decreased by 33%.

 

Timely Tip

 

Have you ever found yourself trying to run faster than time because you have so much to do? Wouldn’t you rather be dancing in tune with time instead of racing with it? Think of time management as little steps you need to take with each project and you will find that not only do you get more done, you actually feel better doing it. When trying to dance with time, learn the T.A.P.P. steps.

Computer Clue

 

Many people are looking for new ways to find more time to do the things they want to do.  Are you one of them?

If you are, consider what you are now using as you time management tool, if anything. 

 

There are great software applications and electronic gizmos for helping you to manage and organize appointments and tasks.  Some must be bought to use or come incorporated in a cell phone, while others may be free with an internet mail tool.  Many of the online tools have calendar features as well as email options.  The really good applications and tools also include contact management and options to prioritize tasks.

 

If you are on a corporate network, your network application may allow you to view the calendars of others and automatically set-up appointments and meetings with people where you work.  Check out the options available to you.  If you are not comfortable with experimenting on your own, find a good book to follow or take a training class.
