Time is Running Away: Time Management Problems

Aug 17, 2007
A common question asked by most managers at some moment in their lives is "Where did my time went?" Whatever they have done to plan it, was for nothing, the time has run away, unspoiled and unused. What could we do to avoid such situations in the future?

First, don't worry too much, we are supposed to waste time, at least occasionally. Doing otherwise would surely lead to mental disorders! However, if the problem persists, you may want to amend it. Here's what you should do:

Plan ahead of your current needs

Planning ahead is a must if you are to use up the time you have effectively. As we plan ahead, we may set the important goals and precise the time when they should happen. The point is to choose the right goals and the good time frame. If we set unrealistic goals, we will end on a couch and wondering where the time we had went. However, if we start from minor goals and only later go for big ones, achieving the long-term big goals will be only a matter of time.

You might not accept it, but we all make mistakes. The problem is only with that relatively few people remember to learn from them. When your plan is already in action, and you've just found a problem, start from moving back and assessing what and why has got wrong. As soon as you identify it, simply change your original plan to accommodate for the changes. The worst thing you can do after you let some time pass unproductively is sitting and wasting more time wondering where the time has gone. Do not look back: you can't do a thing about it. Concentrate on now and the future.

The mistake may happen to everyone. Make sure you'll profit from it, not lose. Time should be kept not as an enemy, but as a companion towards your destined paths.

There's a time for love and romance, for jubilation, and for sorrow. Theres a time to relax, and a time to catch up with the running moments. But what is important is to be in control of time, no matter how pressured or tight any situation might be.

We have different perceptions regarding this temporal aspect we call time. But in the end, what is important is to be on time for everything, under the natural conditions of things, on a normal flow of moments.

Communication lines worldwide are vast and interrelated. Roads and transportation system create dizzying paths and passageways. More so, data are overflowing and overwhelming, drowning us with limitless ideas and knowledge. Likewise, we have to be equipped with the right information and updated with the critical intelligence to get into where we must go, wasting no time at all.

We should lead our lives with ways to manage our resources, energy, and time efficiently.
