Time Management and the Holiday Season

By December 7, 2013

Follow me on:

Working during the Christmas HolidaysGood time management is something we may wish for this time of year when time seems to be in scarce supply. Unfortunately this is something that money can't buy, though we may feel like it can as we invest in device that may or may not help us keep organized.

Money can buy organizing gizmos or even more simple items like calendars and planners, which can help you manage your time better. However, these are only  tools. We must know how to use them to manage our time (and have the discipline to do so) in order for tools to be helpful. And frankly technology can as easily become a time waster as a time saver.

And so as the year draws to a close, I think more about how to get my time under control. Not only because I need so much more of it, but because I am looking forward to a fresh start in the New Year. If you're like me and want to get off on the right foot in 2013, these resources may help.

As we know time and tide wait for none, so time management is at prime position when we are performing any task or running any business. As in working days the routine is fixed and we work accordingly but during holidays when there is no concept of routine then we need real time management. So to keep performance up and growth rate high we have to do the proper time management. Great post!

A couple of years ago I´ve worked about 8 months from home and I know exactly what you´re talking about. I used to wake up, switch on my laptop while I was still in bed and then start working. As much as it may sound I was sparing time, I actually did not. I think it´s mostly the setting, being at home and having all your stuff around you that made it so difficult to remain concentrated. Also the idea that you´re not going someplace else to “do your job” has somehow a big impact, as in not feeling pressure and thus falling prey to the ever present distractions of the net. I guess setting up an “office space” in your house might help dealing with it.
