Time Management Week Two

It's week two of our time management series and so far I've shown you some people who say they're good at time management and others, like myself who are looking to get better. I've enlisted the help of Barry Dixon, a mental health expert.

Dixon said, "The advantages of time management is that you have more time, you're not under pressure."

He continues, "part of the behavioral piece is cognitive, it's how we think our patterns of thought and these are some of the things we say sometimes. Well, one more day won't make that much more difference. I work best under pressure."

You've probably either heard these excuses or made them yourself.

Dixon says American society tends to be rushed compared to other countries such as Europe. And since we do live in the U.S., we're expected to fit into society. Not to mention, the perception of someone who can't manage their time isn't good.

Next week we'll continue to look at this and really dive into some steps we can take to get better.

    This is the second week that you have wasted my time. Get on with it. There was nothing on HOW to manage time.
