4 Reasons Why Everyone Needs Time Management Skills

At a recent college reunion, twenty-five years after we first entered college, I met many old classmates and re-learned one important lesson.

Being Time Efficient Is HIGHLY Profitable!

One theme kept popping up over and over again in our conversations.

“Our kids rarely get to see their dad, he’s so busy!”

“I go to work at 6 a.m. and get back around 7 in the evening!”

“My son WON’T be a doctor – because he sees how crazy our schedule is!”

And invariably, the next question is: “As a surgeon, you must be working very long hours, right?”

They were all surprised when I said my average ‘work day’ at the hospital is 2 hours – except when I’m operating, when it is 7 hours (or longer, depending upon how complex the surgery is).

How do I manage this?

How do I have so much “free time” when everyone else has “No Time”?

How am I juggling so many exciting projects in ADDITION to my regular work?

It’s really quite simple. Let me explain.

Waiting Time? Or Wasting Time?

Endless Time

The abstract concept we call time is a funny thing.

We all know what it is. We all struggle to define, explain and actually understand it.

The same applies to the idea of wasting time. We experience it, but often can’t really describe it.

That’s why this excerpt from an article on ‘Mind Pickings‘ about waiting, with quotes from Jason Farman‘s book, caught my eye:

“Waiting points to our desires and hopes for the future; and while that future may never arrive and our hopes may never be fulfilled, the act of reflecting on waiting teaches us about ourselves. The meaning of life isn’t deferred until that thing we hope for arrives; instead, in the moment of waiting, meaning is located in our ability to recognize the ways that such hopes define us.”

Jason Farman, in ‘Delayed Response

And it embarked upon an intriguing explanation about the concept of time itself.

Time Management – Do You Know Where Your Time Goes?

A few months ago, I downloaded a tiny time management application that runs on my desktop computer where I work online.

It runs in the background, unobtrusively. I don’t even notice it.

Once every week, I receive an email in which there’s a summary time management report – about how I spend my online time.

It is always eye-opening.

This is how a summary report might look:
