You were asked: "How would you define time management?"
I would define 'time management' as being able to divide your available time (e.g. your work day, free time, etc) so that all or most of the things that you need to accomplish get done. It also means that the time allotted is enough that you are able to do a good job of those things--not completing them in a hurried manner so that they are part-way done or not done correctly, for instance.
