Do you think you are a good time manager?

Every night I came back my dorm, i layed out different plans ambitiously and confidently that I could finish.But things rarely went along with my will. I either took too much focusing on one thing or schemed an unreasonable plans at first. Whatever it was, I just could not follow the plans becoz of various distractions.For me, I wouldnt be satisfied with one bite during a whole night.The more things I have done, the stronger is the sense of achievements.See, i was thinking about hitting the sack right about one hour ago, still I'm sitting in front of my computer.what about you? are you a good time manager?

I tend to be a good time manager when I keep the goals and schedule reasonable and allow for the unexpected. I also try to tend to business before pleasure as I'm more likely to finish things that way. Karen

Ambition is great it drives most of us, the only way that I believe you can truly focus, no matter what happens is to focus on your path in life and how would you walk if you kept on carrying more and more tasks wouldnt you collapse on your path or come to a stand still, thats why you should plan effectively working out what you actually need to do to walk your path this is also a great way to clear out the junk from your life, what are you going to carry with you on the pathway I mean what do you really need

Bill, my friend! It's been a long time! I'm a terrible time manager. I think it's an act of rebellion, since my life is controlled all day by the bells that begin and end my classes. I also tend to take on many more tasks than anyone could handle. Somehow, though, I manage to meet deadlines, in spite of becoming lost in books or the computer for far too long each day!

At first i mistakenly took the word as art, an art of rebellion! yea! being a teacher means a strong sense of time awareness, especially if you are teaching in a Lingual Training Center where students do care a lot whether they can get away from class on time.so before class you need to lay out the contents you gonna teach reasonally. Do you prefer to read books or E-books in computer? I mean as a teacher

My friends say my second name should be organisation and I must admit that most things I do are highly organised. Organisation and time management go hand in hand and I'd even say it is impossible to have one without the other. I have written short term and long term goals with written steps towards achievement and I constantly monitor them. Each morning I re-do my "to-do" list for the day, prioritising each item and adding "possibles" if time permits. My time here at myLot is also limited. I spend a little time here most mornings, and the timer is set to regulate the time spent. (I always obey my timer). If I run ahead of schedule in an allotted task I might spend a few minutes here to clear my head before starting the next task, but again the timer is set so that I commence the next task on time. Someone who is not used to such tactics might find it mechanical and boring, but I find it fulfilling and satisfying - and I accomplish everything I set out to do. I am not a slave to the clock and I can always fit in any "extras" like a visit from a friend.

I think I am a good time manager. I usually make it a point to finish my work before deadline because I don't want to stress about it too much. I am very particular with deadlines and I hate to miss them. When I was in school I have instances where I am just able to beat the deadline but my work is haphazardly done so after school I made sure that I'm better than that.

Well, as the things i am talking about is nothing serious, totally outside of my work range, so there's no whatever deadline involved.
