Before you can decide how to manage your time better, you need to recognize how you manage your time now. Busy people do what is required, and rarely have the opportunity to stop and consider whether they are making the best use of their time. A brief analysis of what you do currently may surprise you, and it may help you to identify some changes that could be made. This course will help you to consider the activities that currently take up most of your time, and how you plan and log them. You will also be encouraged to consider the work-life balance to which you aspire, and what steps you could take to make this wish a reality. Each of us is different, and this inevitably affects the way in which we approach time management. Some people habitually wake early, and find that the morning is the best time for them to handle creative tasks or difficult problems; others prefer to rise and work late--these people probably prefer to tackle only easy, routine tasks in the morning. Our personalities also play a significant role in the way we handle tasks and manage time. You are probably already doing certain things well, but there will inevitably be areas that can be improved. The last lesson in this course will help you to approach these changes in a positive and constructive way.
