Time management is a difficult. It is a vague concept since it is not something that you can see, it becomes an abstract idea for many people. So how do you know if you are good at managing your time?
People tend to spend time doing things that they enjoy and putting off the tasks that they don’t like. We’ll do anything to avoid what we see as distasteful.
We also tend to take the path of least resistance, completing easy tasks before starting something difficult. The more complex a task, the more steps (and time) it will probably take. We naturally follow the path of least resistance.
People don’t always put their priorities first. We spend time on other people’s priorities and put our work lower on the list. We don’t want to disappoint, but it really shows a lack of respect for our own time.
If you schedule blocks of time in your calendar, these tasks become commitments. You are making an appointment with yourself to do a specific task, at a specific time. Rarely will you forget these appointments with yourself if you use your calendar well.
