Time Management

     First and foremost, let me give you a clearer view of this topic by giving you the definition of time management. Time management means, ‘ the act or skill of dealing or organizing your time’. If you are able to manage your time well, you will gain a lot of benefits but if it is the other way round, you will lose a lot.
     In this essay, I will focus on two things which are vital in time management. They are ; How to manage your time and The effects of good time management. How to manage your time? Good time managers  always plan their work or tasks. To manage our time wisely, it is helpful if we can have a checklist of tasks and  their deadlines. The sequence of the tasks is put according to their deadlines and urgency. By doing this, we are able to see the number of tasks we have and deal with them systematically.
     The most important or the most urgent tasks should be given priority and allocation of time spent on these tasks should be put into consideration. This is to ensure that they are accomplished within the deadline. If we are able to complete a task earlier or before the deadline, we will be able to go through the task given and this gives us the opportunity to see the weaknesses in it and thus improve them.
     On the other hand, poor time managers always work at the last moment. As we know, the last minute work is usually unimpressive and has a lot of shortcomings or weaknesses. This is because it is done haphazardly and without proper planning.
     Apart from having a checklist, we can also have our own schedule or timetable in which we can allocate not only time spent on our job or profession but also time spent with friends and family. This helps us to balance our time between work and leisure.
     Now, I will touch on the effects of time management. If we manage our time well, we will be able to work systematically and efficiently. A systematic and efficient worker produces good outcomes and these outcomes will be better as he or she becomes more experience in the job or task.
     A good time manager pleases his boss and colleagues. This is very true because if we manage our time well, we will manage our job well and therefore will make the company, institute or office runs smoothly.
     On top of that, a good time manager is definitely a person of great discipline. It takes a great deal of self-discipline to manage our time.
     Finally, good time management ensures bright future. When  we manage our time wisely and beneficially, we perform better than others, in our jobs and tasks. This means we are better workers than those with poor time management. If we are able to manage our time, it is no doubt that we can manage a company, institute or even society.
     In conclusion, time management is something that we can learn and through good practice in managing our time, we will be able to achieve great benefits and success. To become great people, we must be great time managers.
