Know What You Really Care About

How can you manage your time if you don't know what you really care about.

Start Your Day with a Plan

When you wake up in the morning do you have a clear plan regarding what you need to get done, what you want to get done, and how and when you are going to tackle each task?

Be Realistic

Often people either put too much on a list or grossly underestimate the amount of time something is going to take.

Don't Be a Slave to Technology

Internet addiction is a serious problem that affects people all over the world.  More common, however, is an addiction to instant communication.  If you are checking your Blackberry 80 times a day, you are wasting time.

Accept the Fact That Interruptions Will Occur

If you work anywhere around people, you must accept that interruptions will occur. 

Determine How Much Your Time Is Worth

Choose Your Friends and Associates Wisely

Some people require more of your time than others.  Evaluate your relationships.

Don't Give Birth to Monkeys

Having a monkey on your back is a common English idiom for having something unpleasant in your life that won't go away.

Learn to Say No

Ask for Help

Dont be afraid to ask for it.

Find Time to Recharge Your Battery

If you are out of balance, eventually you are going to run into problems.

Evaluate Your Progress Against Your Goals at Least Once a Month

Everyone can get out of balance and lose focus if the systematic ritual of celebrating successes and setting new goals is not in place.
