              In order to develop a time management scheme that works with our intended
   goals, we have to learn some of the basic layouts in planning time management. To
   develop a successful time management scheme we must evaluate time and calculate it
   against time. In other words, we must sit down and ask our self how long does it take us
   to eat? How long does it take us to complete a task? How much time are we wasting? Are
   we spending quality time with the most important people in our lives, or are we spending
   our quality time on things that do not matter. Where our time goes is essential since time
   management is the process of gaining flexibility and cutting back time. As you can see,
   life is a game of loose and gain. Even in time management, we are gaining something and
   loosing something, but the advantage of time management is that we are loosing
   something that brings us rewards and gaining something that brings us bigger rewards. It
   is a no loose situation if we plan time management right. Let the game begin!

              Ok, you start you morning out with a healthy breakfast and going off to work
   with a positive attitude. When you get to work, you have your list of things to do in front
   of you, your desk is clear of clutter, and when you sit down and fire up that computer the
   machine is running smoothly…sounds too good to be true, but it can happen. If you look
   back in this paragraph, you will note I referred to “list of things to do.” Time
   management includes making notes or lists of things that you are responsible for
   completing in a day. The list can start with smaller tasks and lead to bigger tasks. It
   depends on the person and what is expected of them, but for the most part, it is the
   process of elimination. When you sit down at your desk and there is a list in front of you,
   you already know what is expected of you. Therefore, you can just jump right into action
   and finish the task. Notice I said FINISH the task. You should always finish one task
   before moving to another task, unless your job requires skills of multi-tasking. Once you
   finish the first task, you can move onto the next time and follow in pursuit. Once you
   completed all your tasks, sit back for a moment in a comfortable position and think of
   what you accomplished. When tomorrow comes, you will notice you do not have any
   backups, and that your day is running smoothly with new tasks laid out in front of you.
   Now, we can take a look at the computer. Your company is responsible to keep up
   maintenance on your computer, but you are responsible to notify the proper individuals
   when your computer is flopping. If you computer is operating smoothly you know your
   time management scheme is flowing smoothly, but if you notice that your computer is
   acting like a limping soldier, then you probably noticed problems earlier and failed to tell
   the boss. Or, it could be that this is the day that you computer decided to let you know
   that someone wasn’t keeping up maintenance, or “you worked me too hard, I need
   replacement.” Whatever the case, someone was negligence, or both were negligence,
   which means your time is going out the door while you wait for the technician to patch
   up your computer, or else wait for the delivery man to bring in the box. Time
   management includes making sure that things are running smoothly by maintaining your
   equipment, informing others when things go wrong, or upgrading when necessary. If you
   desk is clear when you enter your office, this should let you know that you are doing a
   good job, and motivate you to keep up the good work. You are saving time, since if your
   desk was cluttered you would be in your office early in the morning digging around for
   the list that your boss provided you. Now that you are on the road to time management
   progressed, you will next want to look at how you invest your time outside of work.
