The value of commodities is determined by supply and demand.  A product will be less expensive if there is ample supply.  However, if a product is in great demand with limited supplies, the price will rise.  For example, when flat screen televisions first appeared in electrical stores they were very expensive, supply was very limited and there were only a couple of manufacturers.  Now, there are many different brands and sizes, and every electrical store carries a large range.  What cost many thousands of dollars when flat screen televisions first came out is now affordable for the majority of people.

 Time has been described as the most valuable commodity of all.  Time is a non-renewable resource for which there is no substitute.  In fact when your time is gone so are you!

Think back to your past.  For each event below, write down one event or experience that you can recall from that time in your life.

 What is Important to You?
If you want to do something that you are not presently doing, you must displace something that you are doing to make room for the new activity.  You cannot wait until you have time to take on another task.  You will never have any more time than you have now.  For your life to be more effective you have to free up some of your time by displacing non-productive, low priority activities with more valuable, worthwhile activities….

 How You Use Your Time
This workbook has been designed to enable you to account for how you currently use your time, and to help you plan a range of strategies which will help you to effectively schedule your time and use it wisely.

Have you ever said things like:
“Where has the week gone?”

“I work flat out morning to night, but don’t seem to be getting anywhere?”
"There just aren’t enough hours in the day!”
"How can I get ahead when I spend all my time breaking even?”

 While time is physically measured in seconds, minutes etc, it is through the events and experiences that we have during our lives that we remember.  You measure time by recalling an incident from your past, not by what happened at 11.33 am on August 27, 2010.

Therefore, if you waste time you will have fewer events and experiences to recall.  There will be fewer moments of fun and happiness.

 No matter how you measure it, describe it or use it, time cannot be influenced or changed by you or any other person.  Everybody is given the same amount of time:
24 hours / day.
168 hours / week.
When you look around you will see that there are some people who seem to have time to do everything and then a bit more.  They seem to get greater mileage from their time than others….

BUY this workbook on How You Use Your Time NOW to identify those things that currently prevent you from achieving your goals and from getting the most out of your life.  Use the workbook to develop action plans to get the most out of your life and improve your time management skills.

Time Management Skills and Skills Appraisal
It is impossible to manage time!  The best that you can hope to do is to manage yourself with respect to time.  This does not take more time.  It can’t.  There is no more time.  You are already using up all your time now, whether it be working, sleeping, painting reading etc.  You cannot wait until you have time to take on another task.  You will never have more time than you have now.

If you want to do something that you are not already doing, you must displace other activities to make room for it.  And that is the secret of what people refer to as time management.  To manage yourself with respect to time effectively you must replace less important, non-productive, low priority tasks with more important, valuable worthwhile tasks.  In other words manage yourself with respect to time!

There are many things that you can do to manage yourself with respect to time by using the Ready Made Tips listed below...

  1. Set goals and objectives.  Your goals and objectives need to include personal items, family, recreation as well as work.
  2. When you have worked out your goals and objectives establish action plans with achievable step-by-step actions to achieve those goals.  Without goals  how do you know what is important in your life?

Listed below are key time management skills attributes.  Read each attribute carefully and rate yourself on how well you carry out that attribute every day...

Take the example of 2 employees Jill and Mary.  Jill was a busy administrator for a large company with many things on the go.  She had a large desk with plenty of storage space and filing cabinets.  Unfortunately Jill never got around to filing anything so she had 2 large piles of paper on her desk and her in, out and pending trays were all full with paper.  The cupboards close to her and her desk drawers were also stuffed with completed projects plus projects she was working on.

 If anyone wanted anything from Jill she would have to go through the piles of paper on her desk to find it.  Even though files had been set up for all the projects Jill worked on nothing made it to those files….
