I myself is not really good at this especially when I was younger.. I guess now i got better but still not the best, I can still remember waking up very late and then rushing because the mall is closing and I was supposed to but something very important and all. but this doesn't happen now. But there were still time that I think that I'm late for making dinner because of some errands. How about you how do you manage your time? do you have a to do list? do you plan your daily activities?

I have been good at time management ever since, I don't like being late, so I plan my day accordingly, and an advantage that I have is that I would always wake up early even on weekends, so I tend to have more time on my hands, and I don't go rushing to get ready for something specially in the morning.

we need to make some plan to make full use of our time. IT IS A LITTLE HARD AT FIRST TIME. BUT IT WILL BE GOOD FOR US IN A LONG TERM. MAKE PLAN IN ADVANCE.

Yes I am very good at time management and always try to use every minute carefully.i plan my day on an electronic organizer and make sure that i get important stuff done first and if their is any spare time I will relax a bit.I have a lot of friends that don't manage their time very well and always get behind of stuff like paying bills or even showing up to work on time.Ive never been late for work except by a few minutes once and that was because by car would not start.People should manage their time well as life is a presious thing and so many people take it for grantite.

I must say that I'm good about managing my time. Back when I was on my college years, I remember some of my classmates and friends as well asking me on how I was able to manage my time well. I think time management goes with self- discipline because without this thing you were not be able to accomplish every task at a certain point of time. Back when I was still on school I can't remember that I've came in late in my classes even once because I always make it sure to woke up at least 2 hours ahead of my schedule. This 2 hours will give me enough time to prepare myself, have breakfast, prepare my things and even read my notes before I go to school. During spare time, even a single minute can be that productive for me. I hope you can learn on how to budget your time properly.

i'm a lazy bum and i don't know when i'll change. i don't really manage my time and i don't plan my activities because when i do, i often don't act as planned. there are things which i ought to do first but will save them for later until not much time is left in favor of things i wanted to do more than anything else. it started when i had my first sleeping issues. i couldn't get enough sleep everyday until now, in fact it's 4 here in the morning and i'm still wide awake. there are times when i would stay in bed the whole day to concentrate on just falling asleep, but nothing happens. when i start doing really boring things so that i could get sleepy, once in bed, the sleepiness will go away. i could get really sleepy while playing guitar, that's why i never learned a lot, but once i decide to sleep, set it aside and go to bed, poof! i'm wide awake again. this had been a serious problem for me but i don't want to see a doctor. i think i do know what's keeping me awake, i just don't know how to get rid of it. so when i can't sleep and isn't well rested at all, my entire day is busted. when i'm not feeling well because of lack of sleep, instead of doing things i ought to do, i'd try to get more sleep or i'd feel really, really sick if i force myself. as expected though, i'd feel more sick if in the end i still can't get more sleep. thus, i don't really know which to start first, to manage my time or to try to get enough rest. but don't worry, i'm doing my best now, because i'm already getting this feeling that i'm being left behind.

When i have lot of work to do in a day, that day is shorter than other days and it becomes longer when i dont have any work to do.. I always make timetable during my studies and keep some extra days as well as i know i will not be following my timetable correctly.. Overall i finish my 70-80% of wprk with that and i m happy...

I do things on my schedule. I take part in different activities and among all, I am into sports, I am a soccer player, and it gives you this disciplinary approach which you can use in your practical life as well.

Old saying that time is money so we should save and follow the time table.I am very strict in this matter and I do all my work according to my time table. According to me life without rules is useless.You must divide your time and enjoy your life according to this.

When I started my career I was really poor in time management. I always used to get jumbled in so many activities that I ended up spending far too much of time doing things that I did not want to be doing. Slowly I worked on my time management skills and now I manage my activities quite well. In fact, I have been advising people on tips related with Time Management. You can check out two such articles from my blog site: http://ramadvice.wordpress.com/2008/10/04/time-is-money-time-management-tips/ http://ramadvice.wordpress.com/2008/10/09/time-management-a-structured-approach/ Take a look at them and let me know your views on them. Cheers! Ram

I've always been a pretty good time-manager. I tend to worry a lot and remeber things most peope forget; I always end up being the reminder for all my friends of assignments due and appointments, and stuff, lol.

I admit I was never good at time management when I was in my teens. I was always late for school, and I could never keep any routine. But being married now with kids easily made me an instant time manager pro. lol. I had to keep so many to-do lists that my fridge gets piled up with so many post-it notes. And I never get around without my watch to remind me of what I need to do next. Alarms, calendars and note reminders on my phone. Couldn't get through a day without them now.

Sad to say, im not so good in time management because i am easily disturbed by people around me. However, because of my busy schedule nowadays, i began to learn how to budget my time as wise as possible. Its really so hard being ruled by a clock but that's the way it is, if i can't cope up with my everyday schedule, then i will missed something left undone. So now, i could consider myself good enough in budgeting my time, but i could do it much better soon. Good night!

I am an average as well in time management but I incredibly manage my time when I'm in a rush and I know that I have a lot of things to do. Sometimes I make a list and plan activities but most of the time I don't because I can't follow them anyway due to some events suddenly arising. But having a list will always remind you of things that are yet to be done.

I would say that I am average at it, by which I mean that I am not good at it, but also not bad at it. I am like most people, I suppose!

I am a loser when it comes to time management. I am not great at it, sometimes good at it. It depends on how important I will do. If the task is about work I am good at it. I finished it first above everything else. If the task is just for home or for my part time online job I sometimes get tired of doing it, I always have the thought that I can do some of it tomorrow. It depends on the value of different activities. I can be a good at it but not great since I have flaws too and I easy to forget unless I wrote it and schedule it before hand.
