Back in the old days the passing of time was measured by sunrises and sunsets. Life drifted nicely on pace in between and there was no blame for being late. How could there be when no one was able to judge whether the meeting or work was supposed to start fifteen minutes from now or two hours ago?

Manager on your wrist

Even though wristwatches have stepped aside and allowed room for smartphones’ high-resolution screens to tell us what time it is, a clock tells us many things. What time to wake up, have a coffee, get to the office, etc. And as days are not infinitely long, better to use our time wisely, right?

There are numerous strategies on how to manage time efficiently, but these can be summed up in five tips.

  1. Write a schedule and follow it. Remember to schedule in interruptions, too, because they do happen.
  2. Take your time when you need it. For example, setting a “don’t disturb” alert when your work can’t be interrupted.
  3. Refuse to accept distractions. It is highly tempting to check different social media channels every now and then, but sometimes it is good to just block them out and concentrate on the present moment.
  4. People who successfully manage their time are said to be purposeful, committed to values and to have chosen happiness. They put relationships above hurrying to get things done.
  5. Be realistic. No one is a superman. No matter how much time you might have, you can’t always do everything.
