What Everyone Ought to Know About the
Importance of Time Management

Ever asked yourself "Why is time management important?" It's a good question that deserves a good answer!

1. Time is limited. We each receive a 24 hour a day, which equals 1,440 minutes or 86,400 seconds! No matter whether you are rich, poor, sports star or calculus geek - you get the same amount of hours, minutes and seconds each day.

2. By managing your time well you will have an easier road to success. If you don't actively manage your day, life will manage it for you. When life manages your days for you, often you end up spending a good patch on silly things, rather than things you would really like to have done.

3. How you choose to spend your time is what sums you up as a person. Do you really want to be that boring person who only ever went to work, watched TV, did a little internet browsing then went to bed...By effectively managing your personal life you can become the person you want to be. Who do you want to be this time next year?

4. Allows you to spend your life doing the things you really want to do. Spending quality time building relationships with your children and spouse, or mastering a musical instrument. By learning these life skills, you will experience new things and enrich your life.

5. Personal satisfaction. Imagine you run into someone you haven't seen for 5 years and they ask "What have you been doing since I saw you last?" What would you reply? If it is "Same old things" you need to look into what you really want out of your life and get started, right now!

"It is the ability to get what needs to be completed, finished in the correct amount of time. It means being able to use your hours and minutes wisely, and get everything finished when it should be."

- Debra: Stay at home mom
