4. Making a list. I can not tell you how making a list is very benefitual for time management. At first I thought people who worked and used lists were just using lists because they were forgetful. But in actuality making a list will save you mountains of time, and you will accomplish what you need to do for the day. Those that are successful at planning their time are people that have a list of things that need to be done. You will be able to see in black and white what it is you need to do. Only include what you really feel you can accomplish within a specfic block of time.

5. Buy a planner and plan your work day. When I first purchased my first planner it seemed very odd. It will take a little time to adjust to using it. Once you have adjusted to implementing a planner in your daily activities it will become second nature for you. You need to schedule time to accomplish your goals and your tasks.

    Time management is very important for any business organization. Some employees do not know how to manage their time and this leads the organization not to achieve some of its goals. Seminars, workshops and coaching employees on how to manage time will be of great help to employees and the organization.
